Charging separately

Hi. I’m new to being a sole trader and accounting. I have just priced my first job for a client. I need the customer to pay me in advance for £321 of materials then I want to charge my labour costs post the job. How should I record this in QuickFile please

Hello @Badger

There are a number of ways to record this.

You could raise it on one invoice with multiple lines breaking down the payment dates.

Or you could raise 2 invoices (deposit and balance)

Ultimately it is up to you or you could consult you accountant for tailored, best practice advice

Thank you for your reply Steve option 2 seems the most simple.

Thank you for you help
