It is an immediate settlement.
An invoice will contain the money payment mode like a check, bank transfer, Paypal etc. However, the bill is given after receiving the payment in cash, debit, or credit card. Most of the time bill and money settlement happens hand in hand.
The table part will remain the same in bill and invoice that calculates the labor charge per hour against each work description.
