    What is the difference between commercial invoice and proforma invoice ?
    Proforma invoice is just a reference doc for import and export negotiations. Whereas the commercial invoice will be a finalized billing document.
    Give examples of the standard Proforma Invoice Doc Types
    With Reference to Order – F5
    With Reference to Delivery – F8 (We generally create docs of this type more)
    Will Proforma Invoices be posted to Accounts ? No postings will be done, it is just a reference for govt trade negotiations.
    Under what situations will the proforma Invoice be used ? In import and export conditions that involves border crossing and need to follow certain process guidelines.
    What is Nota Fiscal ?

    The performa invoice is just as a commercial invoice reflecting the actual cost and quantity of goods delivered.The type f5 and f8 do not post any response to the G/L accounts,the reason being these types are not assigned to the account determination procedure which in tuen is attached to thebilling type F2 hence f2 reflects posting to the G/L accounts.

    Hope this should help….!!!

    Q)difference between commercial invoice & Proforma Invoice

    Proforma invoice : Invoice document which is useful to complete custom clerance ( Crossing country border ) in case of Export and import trading. This is nothing but replica copy of commercial invoice which will not be posted to accounts.

    Billing Types ( F5 : Ref to order & F8 : Ref to delivery).

    Commercial invoice : This is final billing document which is posted to accounts and against which customer settles payment transaction.

    Billing type : F2

    Carbonless form Printing and Your Business
    NCR paper is used in various stationery items such as
    invoices, prescriptions and letterheads.

    However the most common usage is that in carbonless forms.
    These are available in pairs which are glued together from the top.
    When a person writes on the top sheet, the special ink used
    ensures that the writing is imprinted on to the bottom sheet as well.
    This is done without placing carbon paper in the middle and results in a neat and accurate copy.

    forms have increased to such an extent that they are changing the amount
    of paper used in today’s offices.

    The major waste producing industries of the world including those of
    a retail and medical nature are relying more and more on carbonless forms which
    has reduced the burden they put on landfill sites. Not only has that,
    but the amount of storage space required for stationary supplies also have been cut down due to
    the usage of these forms.

    The advantages do not stop here. The use of carbonless
    forms automatically standardizes the formats used
    for all receipts, invoices and inventory records. It also reduces the amount of paper that
    is wasted and used inefficiently.
    And the largest advantage is that, because data is copied
    exactly as it was written down the firs time, the human errors that are inevitable in manual
    recopying are avoided. Thus the accuracy of all records increases automatically.
    Not only that, but the time required for information to be
    rewritten for the records is also saved because everything is copied down for the records the first time round.

    Since the phenomenon has become so popular, carbonless forms printing is now available
    in personalized versions. One can get any style, shape, color
    and size printed according to the requirement of one’s business.
    A lot of printing companies have launched websites in which carbonless forms can be designed
    online.
