A Commercial Invoice is a document used for Customs declaration along with the Packing List. It is provided by the person or corporation that is exporting an item across international borders.
Although there is no standard format, the document must include a few specific pieces of information such as the parties involved in the shipping transaction, the goods being transported, the country of manufacture, and the Harmonized System codes for those goods. A commercial invoice must often include a statement certifying that the invoice is true, and a signature.
