  • full details of all parties involved and final destination if this is different from the address ‎shown;‎
  • country of origin of the goods (very important); ‎
  • transport details; ‎
  • shipping term (the Incoterms® 2010 rule, eg FCA, CIP, DAP) used; ‎
  • method of payment; packing details including net and gross weights and the container ‎number if full
  • container shipment being sent; ‎
  • detailed descriptions of goods, including quantity; ‎
  • unit prices, full amount including freight and insurance costs (when applicable). ‎

The invoice should also contain a signed clause confirming that the invoice details are true and ‎correct and that no arrangement has been entered into affecting the price of the goods between ‎the exporter and purchaser by way of discount, rebate, compensation, or in any manner other ‎than what is shown on the invoice.

(Combined ‎Certificate of Value and Origin Form No. 744A or No. 529 A4 size, one-sided only, on the back of ‎which invoices are printed).
