A Catering Invoice is presented to a client when the caterer wants the client to pay for specific services that were agreed upon previously.
The final Invoice for Catering Service is normally presented at the very end, upon successful completion of catering for a particular event. However, prior to this most caterers would usually require some form of deposit. This is done to prevent any cancellations from the client to ensure that the caterer does not lose any money. After all, imagine a scenario when a caterer takes no deposit and stocks up on products ready for the special event - only to be let down last minute. Not only will the caterer not make any money, they will in fact be at a substantial loss.
The invoice provides a highly detailed list of all of the services and additional items that were required to cater for the specific event, tailored to the wishes of the client. Not only does it provide a list of these things, but also their quantity and the price per unit. The total costs are calculated and noted at the end of the list to ensure that the client knows how much exactly they should pay.
To simplify things for the customer (who will know exactly what they are paying for) and the caterer (so they can keep track of payments), we recommend using Catering Invoice templates.
