HoAVENUE Findochtyw do I invoice for a deposit for an item such as a countertop?
The best way to invoice for a deposit it to have the full price of the item on the invoice and then in the note section at the top put something like '50% Deposit Required'. The client pays the deposit and it's applied to that invoice. Then the invoice will show a payment on it but also a balance due. When you want to collect the balance due send the SAME invoice to the client with the balance due showing and that's what they'll pay, closing the invoice out.
Always use a single invoice for multiple payments on the same item(s), as payments accrue and balances due are adjusted. Send the same invoice over and over till paid off.
Hope this helps-
