6.1 Overview. This Contract imposes special restrictions on how the Client and the Coach must handle confidential information. These obligations are explained in this section.

6.2 The Client's Confidential Information. While working for the Client, the Coach may come across, or be given, Client information that is confidential. This is information like customer lists, business strategies, research & development notes, statistics about a website, and other information that is private. The Coach promises to treat this information as if it is the Coach's own confidential information. The Coach may use this information to do its job under this Contract, but not for anything else. For example, if the Client lets the Coach use a customer list to send out a newsletter, the Coach cannot use those email addresses for any other purpose. The one exception to this is if the Client gives the Coach written permission to use the information for another purpose, the Coach may use the information for that purpose, as well. When this Contract ends, the Coach must give back or destroy all confidential information, and confirm that it has done so. The Coach promises that it will not share confidential information with a third party, unless the Client gives the Coach written permission first. The Coach must continue to follow these obligations, even after the Contract ends. The Coach's responsibilities only stop if the Coach can show any of the following: (i) that the information was already public when the Coach came across it; (ii) the information became public after the Coach came across it, but not because of anything the Coach did or didn't do; (iii) the Coach already knew the information when the Coach came across it and the Coach didn't have any obligation to keep it secret; (iv) a third party provided the Coach with the information without requiring that the Coach keep it a secret; or (v) the Coach created the information on its own, without using anything belonging to the Client.

6.3 Third-Party Confidential Information. It's possible the Client and the Coach each have access to confidential information that belongs to third parties. The Client and the Coach each promise that it will not share with the other party confidential information that belongs to third parties, unless it is allowed to do so. If the Client or the Coach is allowed to share confidential information with the other party and does so, the sharing party promises to tell the other party in writing of any special restrictions regarding that information.


Neither party is liable for breach-of-contract damages that the breaching party could not reasonably have foreseen when it entered this Contract.


8.1 Overview. This section transfers certain risks between the parties if a third party sues or goes after the Client or the Coach or both. For example, if the Client gets sued for something that the Coach did, then the Coach may promise to come to the Client's defense or to reimburse the Client for any losses.

8.2 Client Indemnity. In this Contract, the Coach agrees to indemnify the Client (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against all liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of: (i) the work the Coach has done under this Contract; (ii) a breach by the Coach of its obligations under this Contract; or (iii) a breach by the Coach of the promises it is making in Section 3 (Representations).

8.3 Coach Indemnity. In this Contract, the Client agrees to indemnify the Coach (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of a breach by the Client of its obligations under this Contract.


9.1 Assignment​. This Contract applies only to the Client and the Coach. Neither the Client nor the Coach can assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Contract to a third-party (other than by will or intestate), without first receiving the other's written permission.

9.2 Arbitration. As the exclusive means of initiating adversarial proceedings to resolve any dispute arising under this Contract, a party may demand that the dispute be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its commercial arbitration rules.

9.3 Modification; Waiver. To change anything in this Contract, the Client and the Coach must agree to that change in writing and sign a document showing their contract. Neither party can waive its rights under this Contract or release the other party from its obligations under this Contract, unless the waiving party acknowledges it is doing so in writing and signs a document that says so.

9.4. Noticies.

(a) Over the course of this Contract, one party may need to send a notice to the other party. For the notice to be valid, it must be in writing and delivered in one of the following ways: personal delivery, email, or certified or registered mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested). The notice must be delivered to the party's address listed at the end of this Contract or to another address that the party has provided in writing as an appropriate address to receive notice.

(b) The timing of when a notice is received can be very important. To avoid confusion, a valid notice is considered received as follows: (i) if delivered personally, it is considered received immediately; (ii) if delivered by email, it is considered received upon acknowledgement of receipt; (iii) if delivered by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), it is considered received upon receipt as indicated by the date on the signed receipt. If a party refuses to accept notice or if notice cannot be delivered because of a change in address for which no notice was given, then it is considered received when the notice is rejected or unable to be delivered. If the notice is received after 5:00pm on a business day at the location specified in the address for that party, or on a day that is not a business day, then the notice is considered received at 9:00am on the next business day.

9.5 Severability. This section deals with what happens if a portion of the Contract is found to be unenforceable. If that's the case, the unenforceable portion will be changed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable, unless that change is not permitted by law, in which case the portion will be disregarded. If any portion of the Contract is changed or disregarded because it is unenforceable, the rest of the Contract is still enforceable.

9.6 Signatures. The Client and the Coach must sign this document using Bonsai's e-signing system. These electronic signatures count as originals for all purposes.

9.7 Governing Law. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this document shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America.

9.8 Entire Contract. This Contract represents the parties' final and complete understanding of this job and the subject matter discussed in this Contract. This Contract supersedes all other contracts (both written and oral) between the parties.

Carpentry is a skilled trade – it requires precision, artistry, and an eye for detail. Billing for carpentry services can be just as intricate. You need to account for the materials, the time, and the labor involved in each project.

And to most carpenters, the billing process is a necessary evil. It's time-consuming and often confusing. Sure, you may have loads of journeyman carpentry and construction jobs under your belt, but when it comes to creating a line-item invoice for each's enough to make your head spin.

Here's the good news: we're here to help. In this post, we'll show you how to write an invoice for carpentry in a way that's clear, concise, and easy to understand. We'll also provide a free downloadable template that you can use for your own business. Let's get started.

Why do you need a carpenter invoice template?

A carpentry invoice template is a pre-formatted document that you can use to bill clients for your services. It includes all of the necessary information, such as your contact information, the client's contact information, a detailed description of the work completed, and the total amount due.

Invoice templates make it easy to create professional-looking invoices, which can help you win repeat business and referrals. They also save you time by allowing you to simply fill in the blanks, rather than starting from scratch each time you need to generate an invoice.

How to create a carpenter invoice template

Here are a few steps you need to follow to create a clear, concise, and professional invoice template: 

Creating a line-item invoice

The first step in creating a carpentry invoice is to itemize the materials, time, and labor involved in the project. This will give you a clear picture of how much to charge for the job.

Let's say you've been hired to build a custom bookshelf. The client has given you the dimensions and asked you to use cherry wood. You've quoted them a price of $500 for the project.

Here's how you would itemize the costs:

  • Materials: Cherry wood (enough to build the bookshelf), nails, screws, sandpaper, wood glue, etc.
  • Time: The number of hours it will take you to complete the project, from start to finish.
  • Labor: Your hourly rate for the work.

Once you've itemized the costs, you can add them up to get the total cost of the project. In this case, it would be $500.

Adding taxes and fees

The next step is to add any taxes and fees that apply to the project. These will vary depending on your location and the type of project. In some cases, you may be required to collect sales tax from your client.

For example, let's say you're a carpenter in the state of Texas. The state sales tax rate is about 6% percent. That means you would need to add about $30 in sales tax to the total cost of the project ($500 x 0.06 = $30).

You would then add this amount to your invoice, for a total of $530.

Including other charges

There may be other charges that apply to the project, such as a fee for the disposal of materials.

For example, let's say you're hired to demolish an old deck and dispose of the materials. The client has asked you to haul the debris to the dump, which will cost them an additional $100. You would add this charge to your invoice, for a total of $630.

Making payments

The final step is to include payment information on your contractor invoice template. You'll want to be clear about when the client is expected to pay and what methods of payment you accept.

You should also include any late fees that will apply if the client doesn't make a payment on time. For example, you might charge a late fee of 5% percent in your construction invoice templates if the bill isn't paid within 30 days.

Here's an example of what this might look like:

"Payment is due within 30 days of receipt of this invoice. A late fee of 5% will be applied to all invoices not paid on time. I accept payments by check, credit card, and PayPal."

Thank you note

Once you've finished creating your contractor invoice template, it's always a good idea to include a thank-you note. This is a nice way to show your appreciation for the business and build goodwill with your clients.

Benefits of using an invoice for a carpentry business

There are a few reasons why you might need a carpentry invoice:

To keep track of your income

A carpentry invoice helps you keep tabs on how much money you're making from each project. This is important for tax purposes and for tracking your overall profitability.

To track expenses

A well-crafted invoice can also help you keep track of your business expenses. This information can be helpful come tax time or when you're trying to get a handle on your overall spending.

To manage payments

An invoice helps ensure that you get paid for the work you've completed. It also provides a paper trail in the event of a dispute.

To improve business branding

A well-designed invoice shows your clients that you're a professional carpenter who takes their construction business seriously. This can help you win repeat business and referrals down the road.

To get paid promptly

An invoice is a formal payment request. Without one, it may be more difficult to get clients to take you seriously and pay you on time for the services provided.
