Payment Request Form Wanted

I have a form already but doesn't look too professional, it's ok for a mom and pop but I'm starting to get into larger jobs so want to look more professional. Can someone share one in excel or word form.

Re: Payment Request Form Wanted

Are you talking about invoices or something else? I regularly deal with multi-million dollar companies whose forms look pretty much like Aunt Ethel banged them out on her manual typewriter.

The only thing that stands out about them is as Griz says, they're on a letterhead.

Re: Payment Request Form Wanted

If you getting payments by check/cash, you have your schedule in the contract.
If you request payments online, Paypal has a payment request form you can add your logo, etc and send it via email.

If you request payments by mail like others said use a letterhead.
I never lost a cent on the jobs I didn't get!

Google some standard invoice forms and create your own template using the ideas you like. Heck, the guy that cuts my grass has a pretty decent invoice form.
