What is commercial invoice
A commercial invoice is considered the most important document in international trade, because merchandise is not allowed to clear customs at the destination without one. That is even true if the goods are samples and have no commercial value. The form should identify the seller and buyer of goods or services identify invoice number, date, shipping date, delivery and payment terms, and a complete listing and description of the goods or services sold including, quantities, prices, and discounts.
A commercial invoice is used as a customs declaration provided by the person or corporation that is exporting an item across international borders. Although there is no standard format for an invoice, the document must include a few specific pieces of information as what implemented by this free commercial invoice template provided you free of charge by UniformSoft.com, such as the parties involved in the shipping transaction, the goods being transported, the country of manufacture, and the Harmonized System codes for those goods. A commercial invoice must also include a statement certifying that the invoice is true, and a signature. Commercial invoices are in European countries not normally for payment. The definitive invoice for payment usually has only the words 'invoice'.
