Invoice, which can be generated in either electronic or paper format, serves as a legal document or notification. Completing the fields in this form will produce a digital invoice in the form of a PDF file, which can subsequently be printed. Both paper and electronic invoices possess equal legal standing. Invoices must be issued no later than 15 days following the date of goods or services delivery, or from the date of payment receipt prior to the delivery of goods or services.
Proforma invoice serves as a notice or payment directive, which is not classified as a tax document. Upon obtaining a deposit, users are required to generate an invoice or a fiscal record corresponding to the payment received.
Credit note represents a document that pertains to and amends the initial invoice. As a rectifying fiscal record, it is generated in instances where the supply of goods or services is annulled (entirely or partially) or returned (completely or in part), or when the price undergoes a reduction. The original invoice number must be explicitly cited within the credit note. Furthermore, the figures in the credit note should be negative, necessitating the inclusion of a minus sign preceding the amount.
Debit note is a formal document that pertains to the original invoice and serves as an amendment. This financial instrument is issued by the supplier to the customer in instances where there is an escalation in the amount owed by the customer. Circumstances that may warrant the issuance of a debit note include supplementary charges, inaccuracies in billing, or alterations in the quantity of goods or services provided. Consequently, a debit note augments the customer's outstanding balance and enhances the supplier's receivables. The primary distinction between a debit note and a credit note resides in the rationale for their issuance and the manner in which they impact the financial accounts of the concerned parties.
Tax document for the received payment essentially constitutes an invoice. This document is generated by the Value-Added Tax (VAT) payer upon obtaining a payment (deposit) and prior to the dispatch of goods or the provision of services. The pertinent tax and VAT obligations are calculated and exhibited within the document, and the invoiced sum must correspond to the total of the payment acquired.
