If you pay, the scammer is lucky, but if you do not, you will never hear anything about it again. What tricks do they use and what can you do about them?
A delivery note is also known as a packing note. But what is a delivery note note?

A quote is the precursor of an invoice, an important part of the tendering process. It is an offer for a product or service that the customer can use.

It is a business proposal that the customer can accept or reject.
If you want to be your own boss, you have to pay a little more attention to VAT, the value added tax. Every entrepreneur has to deal with it.
