What is the context?

Bill is more informal and used in everyday situations (like paying the bill at a restaurant).

An invoice is associated with either the paperwork that accompanies a shipment of goods, or the document sent from a company demanding payment for goods or services.

Note that '#' is used to mean 'number', so it doesn't go before a letter.
