once a month or later ... May 13, 2014

sometimes once every 2 months, or when I need the Moneyicon_smile.gif Never have the time. And then I forgot everything about the job and it takes much longer to do the invoice.

At the end of the month May 13, 2014

Unless it's a new client (and the beginning of the month) in which case I invoice them immediately!

For a one-time or rare clients the invoices are sent together with the translation.

For regulars - at the end of each month.

... but I do have a very regular client (several jobs each month) who prefers to receive the invoice with the translation...

As soon as the job is done May 13, 2014

I typically return my invoice along with the completed job, although, of course, I comply with any specific client requests as far as billing is concerned.

... I always prepare the invoice immediately after finishing the job!

Whenever I get around to it, but usually at the end of the week.
For those customers that make the payment after a week, I do tend to leave a little time though.
For new customers, or when specified otherwise, I try to get it off asap.

once a week May 13, 2014

I am mothly taxpayer (I mean VAT-payer) so once a week.
For regular clients in the end of the month.
For beloved clients, when they remind meicon_biggrin.gif
For old clients if the language is Latvian, may never.

I always prepare and send an invoice with the completed translation.
If I did otherwise, I'd forget stuff (old age).

I think the best time to invoice my clients is as soon as the job is done, but I often forget to do it due to other translation jobs and activities.

end of month May 13, 2014

for some clients, the ones who send me regular work.
But some insist on being billed right after a job is completed because each job is uploaded separately to their system. Then i usually receive payment all at once.

It depends May 13, 2014

For those customers who send me regular work at the end of month.
For the other ones right after the job is completed, or one or two days later.
