Re: Invoice vs Contract

An invoice is normally evidence of a contract. Simply put, a contract is an agreement between two individuals or entities. A contract may be oral or written. An invoice is a document demonstrating the amount owed under the terms of the contract. However, if an invoice has language contituting a contract (or an agreement), it may also be deemed a contract.

Re: Invoice vs Contract

an invoice is a bill, which is not necessarily a contract but can be seen as evidence of a contract in that the particular item or service was delivered, and then payment requested...

generally, a bill may be shown as evidence of a contract... but will not be dispositive of the existence of this contract.
