Example quote format
Quotes identify the customer and supplier, then detail the products or services to be sold. Prices for each item are added at the bottom, and tax applied as required.
You may decide to give VAT-exclusive prices to VAT-registered business customers, but be clear about it.

Why quote format matters
Your quote will probably compete with others. Don’t leave the customer to guess at what they get for their money. And make it easy for them to contact you if there are questions.
You don’t have to commit to a price forever so put an expiry date on your quote. You can follow up with the customer before it runs out, which will show that you’re keen to win the job.
If you’re not too sure about the price, consider calling it an estimate instead.
