Pro Forma Invoice [Last Updated by: admin on 2012-01-01]
A sample invoice provided by an exporter prior to a sale or shipment of merchandise, informing the buyer of the price, kinds and quantities of goods to be sent, and important specifications (weight, size, and similar characteristics). The pro forma invoice not only acts as the contractual offer (which may be accepted by the importer's transmission of a purchase order), it is intended to be exactly replicated in the final commercial invoice, so that the buyer receives no surprises as regards either the goods or the price. Importers may need a pro forma invoice to be able to apply for an import licence or a foreign exchange permit. In the case of a letter of credit, the pro forma invoice is frequently used to inform the importer of the amount for which the letter of credit has to be opened.
