    • Invoice details such as the invoice date, invoice due date, and invoice number (Note: there is no Accounts Receivable in QuickBooks Self-Employed and this will not appear or impact any details on your Profit and Loss report until you have actually received the transactions and categorized it on the Transactions tab)
    • Invoice message which appears directly in the invoice up to 255 characters. You will also have an opportunity to edit the email with the invoice attached.

After you send your first invoice, the Invoices section shows the invoices you sent. From there, you can:

  • Mark an invoice as paid
  • View it
  • Duplicate it (useful if you bill the same client or the same services frequently)
  • Export it as PDF
  • Print it
  • Resend it
  • Delete it
  • Edit it (Note: Editing an invoice already marked as paid will take it out of the Paid status. It will not put it in a "partially paid" status.)

Note: Swiping left on the invoice will give you options to delete, resend, and mark as paid.
