    I would pay cash, but might be able to get a reinbursment by an NPO here in Argentina and for that I need an invoice.

    So getting an Invoice would not be common?

    No, although you could certainly prepare one that the privately paid caregiver could sign and submit. It just won't be from a company or corporation, but from a private individual. I don't submit an invoice to my employer for my work...I just get paid after submitting my time card. Do employees do this in Argentina??

    Well, in Argentina the invoice is the formal proof of a legal and tax-payer job done. I'm guessing this is what the NPO will ask me. In Argentina you don't need to incorporate or create a company to make an Invoice, as many indvidual contractors (such as nurses, private teachers, home aides) do. What would be the equivalent in the US?

    Probably a time card or log of hours worked, signed by the employee and employer.

    We need to invoice for reimbursement also here in the Netherlands. I made a fairly complex Excel timesheet/invoice that works very well. I have people fill in their hours on our PC and then at the end of the month after reviewing them I save a PDF copy for them for their records, and also submit it for care reimbursement. Because it has all of the information needed for their taxes and the care organisation, there has never been a problem that we manage this ourselves, rather than them submitting the invoices to us. The PCAs are happy with it because it takes about 2 seconds each time, and even more importantly, having a consistent system makes it so I can keep a good budget overview of everything and fill in all of the government forms that are needed. I would be happy to share it if there is interest, but would need to translate it from Dutch. It would probably also require some explanation based on how we do care contracts, because everything is based on an agreed hourly wage. If you let me know what you need to include to get reimbursement I can try to include that in it.

Based on your experience, should I expect non-agency caregivers to be able to provide invoices? Maybe this sounds silly but in my country is a normal practise.

    Thanks!
