A ‘Pro forma Invoice’ otherwise known as a ‘Sales Order’ is a document that a seller sends to a prospective customer to outline the details and cost of a product or service. A Pro forma invoice is sent before the work is done, so it isn’t a “true” invoice but instead a commitment of goods or services that have yet to be delivered.

What is the purpose of a pro forma invoice?

Pro forma Invoices are used if you need to produce a document to a customer for products or services that you are yet to deliver. The purpose is to make sure the seller and customer are on the same page about their agreement, most importantly the price of the products or services.
