Writing my own Invoice

I have a question about writing your own invoice since I'm from Sweden and there are a lot of information my invoices need that are not included in the UpWork standard invoice.


My first question is if I need to "cancel" UpWork's invoice before I send my own to the client, and in that case, where do I do this? I don't want the client to get a double invoice. The next question, how does UpWork receive their % if I personally email the invoice straight to the client? Does UpWork charge me when the client's payment has reached my account? Finally, I don't need to include UpWork's % fee in my invoice, do I? Since this is a cost between UpWork and me and does not include the client.

Same problem, would love to see an answer to this ... have you found a solution yet, by any chance?

Hi, what I'm doing now is simply taking the final amount that Upwork will
pay me, and divide it by the number of hours worked. Then I use that as my
hourly rate on my Italian invoice. I also mention that all the payment goes
through Upwork, being as clear and complete as possible. Good luck.
