Paid live performances require that records are kept for accountancy purposes. In most cases the agent, booker or venue who has arranged the gig with the band or artist will provide an invoice or receipt, however, if the act are booking their own gigs, have arranged for a support act or organised a musical event, then they will also need to supply the appropriate paperwork.
Most computers software programs like ‘Word’ or ‘Publisher’ contain editable templates of invoices, receipts and other standard business forms. You are welcome to adapt and edit the examples below for your own use. Receipt books and invoice pads can also be purchased from any stationary shop.
An invoice is a formal notice of payments agreed/due between the booker and artist. It can be issued by either party and should contain all relevant information including dates/times and pricing. It can be issued as a confirmation of booking before the event date or after the event when payment by cheque has been agreed. A copy is required for both parties.
A receipt is a formal acknowledgement that monies have been paid to and received by the artist/band or agent/manager. Receipts are issued when payment has been received. A copy is required for both parties.
