Planning is an important aspect of creating business forms. It is important to plan what exactly the forms will be used for. There is certain criteria that should be considered. How important is the form? What specifics need to be addressed in the form? A business legal form is usually legally binding so being sure that the form fits all the local rules and requirements is also very important. Coming up with several prototypes is typical when planning a business form. Generating the forms than reviewing the finished product is also a common practice. Ideas during the planning stage can come from different sources. There are a lot of online websites that will provide a sample of various forms, it violates copyright laws to use the form verbatim in most cases, but looking at the form and using the same format is not a violation, and there may be some good ideas that will inspire the creation of the form.
Of course this does not mean that you can take, print and use whatever it is that you choose to download. There is a reason why these things are referred to as "templates." These are mere samples that you need to read to assess if they fit the use that you have in mind. If you find that they do, you tweak and customize them so that they may be better applied to your business. Using them "as is"-without adding a personal touch or two, such as your logo or contact details-can harm your credibility and professional image.
Provide checklists. As users complete your form, you may well be asking them to provide supporting information or attach supplementary documents where required. Providing a checklist, often at the beginning or end of a form, helps remind users about all the things they should remember to attach, and any further steps they need to go through.
The answer lies in the Internet. If you have tried searching for "free invoice forms," for example, using your most trusted search engine, then you probably already know that there are a slew of websites that offer free invoice forms and other business templates and forms that you can easily download. There are others however, which, while not offering downloadable free invoice forms, can take you through the process of making one, and provide you with tips that you will find useful in the process.
