14 Invoice This is something we admit we are not very good at – we’re working on it! Is the billing address different from the organising address? Do we need a Purchase Order reference? Would you like a draft prior to final issue? TOP TIP: Getting this information confirmed ahead of invoicing makes it easier for everyone’s finance departments and helps us get paid us on time! Thank you Stage Six
