Today’s tip off is a super handy tool for freelancers and consultants of all kinds, a free invoice template from the folks at Paydirt.

Most full time consultants pay for a full online invoicing software solution, but if you’re just freelancing on the side (or just starting out), then this cost may not be within your budget. If that sounds like you, this free invoice creator could be the tool for you.

Using the Free Invoice Template

It’s super easy to use. Just fill out the invoice template with your details (business name, your name, address) and your clients details, and add to the description what the invoice is for.

Then, add the items you’re billing in the line items section below. You can adjust the price and quantity for each line item. If you’re charging for hours worked, add your hourly rate as the price and the number of hours worked in the quantity field.
