    Tax invoice requirements

    Okay so I found a website that gives the basic requirements for a Tax invoice but I need so advise from you.We ship products from multiple address from multiple vendors to one customer,now as state on the site you have to show the "to" and "from" address.Now the to address is the customers address but what about the from address,I mean we might have a couple per order depending on the products purchased.So what address should I show on the invoice? our business address or each individual address the products is shipped from? I would say our business address but is it legal to do so?

    Unless I am missing something here. Naturally the vendors all invoice you and you then invoice your client with only your information in the "from" section. You can’t include your suppliers/vendors in the “from” section because they are not invoicing your client, they are invoicing you.
    I hope this helps

    So what your basically saying is that it's not necessarily the address shipped from but the address invoiced from?

    To give a clearer picture, are you invoicing the ONE CUSTOMER the shipping expense where you are acting as a courier?

    We invoice the one customer yes and were not the courier we sell the products but we dont stock all the product so most of the time it get's sent directly to the customer via the couriers we use from different distributors.
