Data needed to make an invoice


I just heard on the news that the employment crisis It has led many Spaniards to start their own business. The times are not there either to embark on the entrepreneurial adventure, however it could be a more than interesting job opportunity. Either through our savings, some small credit or through family aid, we need an economic contribution to start our project.

Among the comments to the news, one of the questions that potentials ask the most entrepreneurs concerns the bills that they have to emit. As freelancers, this is one of the steps that we cannot miss, hence we want to help you with some of the standard data that are essential when making these invoices.

  • Name
  • Tax residence
  • Company Tax Code
  • Invoice number
  • Invoice issue date
  • Customer data (name and surname, company name, address, telephone number, NIF or CIF)
  • Description of the assignment: the task carried out is briefly summarized)
  • Price applied
  • Taxable amount, or what is the same, the total to be collected
  • VAT (general VAT is 21%) (if the invoice is made abroad, VAT must be replaced by VAT
  • Personal income tax (-7% in the year of the first year as self-employed and in the following two fiscal years, or -15% in the remaining years. 15% can also be applied from the beginning, as desired)
  • Total, the sum between the tax base + VAT + personal income tax
  • Payment method

All this data can be sent by mail through a PDF format for convenience. To these data you can add the bank account to which to make the bank deposit, the commercial register of the company, contact telephone numbers and emails and guarantee or days in which it is possible to make the return.

All invoices must be well done so that there are no problems. To keep an order identification data of the self-employed and company can be placed on top. Next, and on the other side of the upper part, we can place the data of the person or company to be billed. Below, and in the central part, we already include the concept of the service or the product that is sold as well as the final cost of the service, the withholding of personal income tax and VAT, the total amount resulting from said operation and the form of payment.
