  • Setting up your business invoices

    You need to ensure that your invoices contain all the information necessary to meet the requirements. The information in your invoices and even what you call them (‘tax invoice’ or ‘invoice’) depends on whether your business is registered for GST.

    Whether you print your own invoices (for a paper-based system) or input details into an electronic system, you need to ensure your invoices contain all the information necessary to meet the requirements.

    If you're registered for GST, your invoices should be called 'tax invoice'.

    If you're not registered for GST, your invoices should not include the words 'tax invoice' – you must issue standard invoices.

    We have examples of how tax invoices can look, including what information needs to be included on them.
