The client gets deposit requests and tax invoices. What are those? Why do we use it?
What is a deposit request?
The deposit request is a document the client will receive during the cooperation. The freelancer provides the data for us to create it.
The deposit request is for the client to verify the data before we send tax invoices. With it, the client can correct the mistake without sending any notes or invoices.
What is the difference between a deposit request and a tax invoice?
The deposit request and tax invoices have the same data and information. But the deposit request is not the official document. The title of the documents is different.
Why do we send a deposit request?
The deposit request is a useful document. With it, the client can
- check the detail of the offer
