While Airtasker can provide transaction receipts to Posters, we cannot provide official invoices on your behalf. As the provider of the service, this is something you may be required to do.
There are differences between a simple receipt and an invoice, and between VAT and non-VAT invoices. In order to provide an invoice, you will need to fulfil certain requirements based on the circumstances of you and the Poster. If the invoice is incorrect or missing information, it may not be valid.
For details about how to create an invoice and what your obligations are, please contact a tax professional, or see the UK Government website below:
Once you have the invoice ready, it’s up to you how you send it to the Poster. If you don’t have the Poster’s details and the private messaging function has closed, you can contact us in order to pass on the invoice for you.
If you can’t or don’t want to provide tax invoices to Posters, it’s a good idea to let them know before you start the task, to avoid any issues later. We also encourage Posters to describe any invoice requirements in their task, so keep an eye out for that in the description.
