Overview - Estimates/Quotes/Proforma


  • An estimate is an approximate calculation of the cost of a project or order. It provides a rough idea of the potential expenses based on the available information. Estimates are used to give clients an early indication of the costs involved in a project or purchase. They are often preliminary and subject to change as more details become available


  • A quote is a formal document that specifies the exact cost for goods or services. Quotes provide a fixed price for a specific period, allowing clients to understand the exact cost before committing to a purchase.


  • A proforma invoice is a preliminary bill of sale sent to buyers before delivery of goods. It outlines the terms of the transaction and the amount due. Proforma invoices are used to declare the value of goods and to inform the buyer of the amount to be paid.
