What information must an invoice include and when may I use a pro forma invoice?

We have specific demands on what information an invoice must include. If the invoice is written in a foreign language we can ask for it to be translated.

An invoice should include the following iformation

  6. trade description
  7. quantity of the goods
  8. price per article
  9. discounts and what kind of discounts, if
  10. terms of delivery

A pro forma invoice may be used for deliveries free
of charge e.g.

  1. substitute (replacements) and guarantee goods
  2. samples, and advertising items
  3. gifts
  4. returned goods
  5. printed advertising material.
