Correctly rendered invoice

A correctly rendered tax invoice includes your business's name, ABN and contains the words 'Tax Invoice'.

Download an example of a correctly rendered invoice ((XLSX 14.3 KB)) which is also ATO compliant.

In addition, a correctly rendered invoice should:

  • comply with any other specific requirements (eg from terms of trade and/or purchase orders)
  • reconcile with the confirmed delivery of goods and/or services supplied
  • be sent promptly after the supply of the goods and/or services, and
  • be sent to the relevant agency’s centralised accounts processing centre (or other billing address specified in the purchase order or written contract) — this address is likely to be different from the agency contact person’s work location.
