INVOICE The last type of business document I will talk about is an Invoice. These are one of the most important types of documents because they are what the customers use to pay bills for something they may have bought or something they might use such as electricity. Invoice's come through you mailbox so that you know how much you owe a company and how slowly you can pay them whether it's all at once or one 10th of the price every month for the next ten months.
