Example Letterhead and Invoices

Standardised Documents

All businesses should prepare standardised documents for their correspondence and invoices. An invoice is basically a standard letterhead with the addition of a number of billing points. The examples set out here assume that your business is a limited company. If you are a sole trader or if you operate as a partnership, you will not have a company registration number, nor a registered office address so you can ignore those items as they are not appropriate.

If your company registered office and your principal place of business are one and the same, you only need to show the address once, provided that it is clear that they are one and the same!

The precise details are set in legalese, though if you’d like to see it, it’s all here:
