Sales Tax Invoice Format in Excel (IMFE Edition)


This Invoice Template with Tax Column includes both the "Bill To" and "Shipping To" sections and has 5 columns that are description, Tax, Hours, Rate/Hour, and Amount.

The heading part of the invoice form, including your own company/business information section, invoice#, invoice date, "Bill To" section and "Shipping To" section are similar to the default sales invoice template included in Invoice Manager for Excel setup program, which you can download and try for free, and is able to upgrade a simple Excel formatted invoice template to a fully featured invoice program. With Invoice Manager for Excel installed, your Excel invoice template will not be a simple invoice creator, it will be powerful invoicing that includes features for managing customers, products/items, invoices and payments.

Although the invoice template includes fields for shipping information, the body part has columns titled with "Hours" and "Rate/Hour". If you don't like these two headings, you can easily change them to Quantity and Unit Price by simply unprotect the Invoice worksheet and then type in your own text labels. However these are not the interesting parts of this invoice template. The special point of this invoice template is that it includes a Tax column, which shows the tax amount calculated based on tax rate (specified on the bottom of the form), line total and status of the "Taxable" checkbox.

The Excel formula of the tax amount cells are like the following.


This formula means that, if the "Taxable" checkbox is checked on the first line of the invoice body (identified by the " oknTaxable_1" cell value), it calculates tax amount based on line total and tax rate. If the "Taxable" checkbox is not checked, it shows either an empty string or the symbol "-" depending on whether the line total is zero.

The checkbox column titled with "Taxable" is put outside the printable area, which is not printed when you execute the print command in Excel, or is not extracted when you execute the "Extract" command when Invoice Manager for Excel is installed. So can the "Taxable" checkbox column be included in the printed version of an invoice? The answer is "Yes". Basically what you need to do is just to move the checkbox controls inside the printable area, and then name them with special prefix so that Invoice Manager for Excel will not remove them on extracting an invoice. Please refer to the Invoice Manager for Excel document, which is included in the installer program, for more detailed instructions on how to customize the invoice template.
