A Bill, otherwise known as a purchase invoice (PI),, is an essential and standard document used by businesses. Organizations use Bills to inform buyers of the amount they owe vendors in exchange for goods or services that were sold.
A Bill typically includes the items the buyer had purchased, the number of items that were purchased, any discounts received, and the total amount owed to the vendor. Most Bills will always include information as to when payment is due to be paid to the vendor.
