Invoicing your clients and customers is an essential part of your business. It’s how you get paid and generate cash flow. But, however important it may be, it doesn’t negate the fact that it’s a cumbersome task that takes up your precious time.
Takes Up Your Time
One of the most obvious complications with doing your own invoicing is that it eats away at your time preventing you from focusing on other important areas of your business.
Sending Invoices Late
Lack of time means you're not sending invoices out promptly. This means you're receiving late payments, which interferes with your business's cash flow.
Having to Manage Outstanding Invoices
This is an unpleasant part of a business, but going back and forth with a client or customer yourself can be a headache and strain your business relationship.
