What Is a Construction Invoice?

A construction invoice is an application for payment for construction-related work and includes the total costs of materials, labor, and miscellaneous charges, as well as contract terms and the total amount due from the client. 

In short, a construction invoice breaks down materials and labor costs in a clear, easy-to-read document of payment due from the client to the contractor or construction company. You can also include line-by-line materials and labor descriptions, as well as enter subtotals, tax rate, total tax, other charges, grand total, less payment (amount paid to the last bill), and total due. Most construction invoices also include a section for the client’s signature and for a signed record of authorized payment. 

Whether your construction invoice is for residential, institutional, or commercial buildings; heavy construction; or other construction-related service, aim to create a clear, accurate construction invoice to ensure that you are paid in a timely manner.
