A pro-forma invoice is an abridged or estimated invoice in advance of a delivery of goods. It notes the kind and quantity of goods, their value, and other important information such as weight and transportation charges. Pro-forma invoices are commonly used as preliminary invoices with a quotation, or for customs purposes in importation. They differ from a normal invoice in not being a demand or request for payment.
