If you are in the IT staffing business – probably you are, I don’t have to tell you how important writing an impeccable invoice is. Shoddily written invoices seldom get paid; they are too often returned to be replaced with a clear copy to be considered for payment. This is true for both digital copies (PDF) as well as manually written.
Writing an invoice (of course on a computer) is an unenviable task and accountant desist it mostly for multiple reason. Whatever the reason, an invoicing is an important function in the accounts department. Every invoice is expected to be accurate and compliant with customer expectation. Specifications can vary from customer to customer and your accountant will be expected to comply with those meticulously lest it is denied payment.
Problems with Creating Invoices
Even an expert invoice writer can fall prey to writing a defective invoice; he can go wrong with calculations, send it to a wrong address, forget to include an eligible discount, fail to annex timesheet evidence, forget to incorporate a project midway contract amendment or ignorantly charge less and cause loss to the staffing company.
There is simply no way to check the accuracy of invoices that accountants write, except making an audit. This can cause delay and more expenses.
