Including a billable expense within an invoice
Let’s say you offer painting services, and purchased a few cans of paint for a particular job. It doesn’t make sense to invoice the client for the service separately, while sending out a fresh invoice for reimbursement on the paint cans. Combining them both as a single invoice looks much more professional, and makes your accounting much less confusing.
In such cases, you can include the recorded expense as a line item within the main invoice.
- Select the client from your contacts list and [create the invoice]().
- At the bottom, Zoho Invoice will prompt the unbilled expenses associated to this contact.
- Select the expenses that are associated with this particular job, they will be added to the invoice as separate line items.
Note : If you are carrying out multiple jobs for the same client, double check to make sure the expenses you’re including are the ones pertaining to the job you’re invoicing for.
