Issue date (invoice date):
This is simply the date on which you create the invoice. The date of issue is often at the top right of the document along with some other information.
Consecutive invoice number:
Hopefully you will create more than one invoice - unless of course you have already given up. Therefore, there is a requirement that all invoices must contain the consecutive invoice no. Your first invoice will therefore receive invoice no. 1, while your next invoice without a CVR no. must contain the consecutive invoice no., which will then be e.g. . invoice no. 2, etc.
Seller's (i.e. your) CPR number or date of birth:
Normally you put a CVR number on invoices, but since you make an invoice without a CVR number, you must instead write your CPR number or at least your date of birth. Your customer can, however, ask for your complete CPR no. and is entitled to this if you do not have a CVR no.
Seller's name and address:
This is hopefully one of the easy ones, but it is still important that you put both your full name and address on the invoice.
Buyer's name and address:
If your buyer has a CVR number, you can quickly find your customer's name and address by searching in CVR register. The buyer's name and address is another thing that must appear on your invoice without CVR no.

On the invoice, you must provide a brief description of what you have sold. This is often a single, short line where you describe the product or service that you have sold. In addition, you must specify the number or units, and most often you also specify the price per unit. piece/unit.
If your goods or services are not delivered on the same date as the invoice date, it is important to state the delivery date on your invoice without CVR no. This is therefore the date when the goods are delivered or when the service is completed.
The VAT that does not have to be declared:
Since you create an invoice without a CVR number, you cannot and must not sell with VAT, and of course you must not put VAT on the invoice either. However, it is important to make it clear on the invoice that you are exempt from VAT, which is easiest to do by e.g. to write "VAT: DKK 0.".
The total amount charged without VAT:
You have previously specified the price per piece/unit for what you sell. Now it's time to enter the full amount – without VAT, of course. That is, the number of units multiplied by the price per unit. unit – The full amount that the customer ends up having to pay.
Any discounts, bonuses or price reductions:
If you have given your customer a discount or reduction in the price and have not included this when you stated the price per par., it is important to include it on the invoice.
