Extracts from this document...


REPORT There are many different types of documents. These include: fax documents, business cards, memo, agendas and many more. They all have different purposes and uses; I will analyse, evaluate, review, comment and give my opinion on different types of business documents.

Mainly they have the company's address, the telephone number, fax number and sometimes may include the email address too. These are very useful for customers who have been recommended a company.

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. Invoices on them have information about the customer, what they are paying for and how much, when you have until to pay them, how to pay them and other related things such as a number to call in case something's wrong and there's an error on the sheet. ...read more.
