    Default Factura?

    Hi folks, once again I need clarification, I am confused.
    I have an issue distinguishing in Spanish between "bill" and "Invoice".

    context:
    I need to wash the balance from a bill to an invoice, for a customer that is also my vendor.


    It seems that in Spanish at least in the castellano used in Mexico the translation for either is "Factura". I have also found "Factura al cliente" for Invoice and "Factura al Vendedor" for Bill.

    any thoughts?

    Thank you

    "Bill" and "invoice" are both "factura." If you wish to specify the actual paper document you can say, "recibo de la factura."

    Being very picky, here is the distinction:

    "Dáme el recibo de la factura"......... (I am asking for a piece of paper)

    "Pásame la factura"........... Send me the invoice (I could be asking for an email attachment).

    So in your case it seems that you are issuing a new "factura" (an invoice) based on a "recibo de factura" sent to you (a bill)

    Buenas,

    Yo personalmente no haría distinción entre recibo de factura y factura en español. Es sinécdoque.

    Saludos,

    Hola!!

    Yo pensaba que el recibo puede no tener valor fiscal, en cambio la factura si.
    O sea, el recibo no sirve como comprobante de nada... y la factura si, o no es cierto?

    Yo coincido con veronica.
    Un recibo no es una factura. Es un simple comprobante, que no tiene valor fiscal.
