There are two ways of sending invoices depending on if you have already finished work. You'll be able to choose one depending on your needs.
In this article, you will learn the following:
- How to send an invoice for the finished work
- How to sign a contract ending with a tax invoice
- How long does it take to verify a contract
How to issue an invoice for the completed work?
Select “For freelancers” and then “Invoice a client”.
Step 1: Upload your files
Upload a completed work file that your client knows and accepts. Its size can’t exceed 100 GB. If you don’t know what kind of work files suit the category of your project, check our suggestions HERE.
Step 2: Describe your project
Pick the right category and title for the project. Remember that the title will be stated on the invoice. Detail the scope of work in the project or describe its elements.
Step 3: Your data and your client’s data for invoicing purposes
If you’re logged in, your data fills in automatically. If it’s your first transaction on Useme and you don’t have an account, you must provide your data to finalize invoicing.
Next, provide your client’s email address. If your client has settled a deal on Useme before, their details also fill in automatically. If it’s your client’s first transaction, you must give their company’s name, VAT identification number, and address.
Step 4: Set the price
Enter the payout you want and choose a copyright transfer option (a license, full ownership transfer, or no copyright transfer).
If you’ve agreed with your client on the net value on the invoice, and you don’t know your payout amount, use the arrow switch. Our calculator will show you how much money you’ll get based on the invoice value.
Step 5: Summary
Now, you can check your transaction details and correct them if needed. After we get your work files and transaction details, our admin will prepare and send a pro forma invoice to your client.
After your client pays the pro forma invoice, they’ll get a standard invoice, and you’ll get your payment within three working days.
We’ll keep you updated and email you about each transaction step.
How to sign a contract ending with a tax invoice?
Choose Sign a secure contract path in the drop-down menu of the For freelancer button.
Step 1: Client's data
Provide the client’s email. If we didn't send an invoice to the client before, we will ask you to provide details like company name, address, Tax identification number, etc. They are necessary to issue an invoice. If we had worked with the client before, the details would have been filled in automatically.
Step 2: Project description
Choose a job category, and provide a title and a brief description of your project. The description should include essential details like the scope of work. Those details will be a reference for us to consider in case of a dispute.
You can choose if you want to transfer the copyright to the client. You can transfer the copyright with a license or protocol. You can read more about copyright here.
Then insert the value of the work, days of work, and the payment deadline. The value of the contract is the client’s net amount. We will add the VAT amount to it. You will see the final amount that you will receive.
Days of work are when you must finish and deliver the finished piece. Try to estimate the time as precisely as possible. The contract will be automatically closed if it exceeds the deadline.
The payment deadline is the time when the client must pay the deposit. The client will receive a tax invoice when the payment is credited to our accounting system.
Step 3: Summary
Now, you can check your contract details.
Check if the details are correct. If so, click on "Sign the contract”.
Useme tip: We recommend you start working until you receive the information from us about the payment. You will get paid when the client approves the finished work.
How long does it take to verify the deal?
Our administrators verify the job deals regularly on working days from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
