Consulting Invoice Template (3rd Sample - One Tax) (IMFE Edition)


The previous 2 sample consulting invoice templates have two taxes defined on the bottom of the form. This new sample demonstrating how to use one tax.

The first sample consulting invoice template in this serial talks about how to move cells. With the second sample, we take an easy way to change the appearance of the invoice form by changing the color theme of the form. With this third sample of customizing the original consulting invoice template, we look at another common problem faced by many of our users - how to change the tax items. That is, if you charge only one tax, how to implement it with the consulting invoice template?

From the above description, we know that it is easy to let the consulting invoice form charge or show only one tax - just set the options on the Taxes tab of the Settings window. But how about the free consulting invoice template?

If you are familiar with Microsoft Excel, you probably already know how to do this.

Before you can modify the layout of the template, note that many invoice templates here on have the Invoice worksheet protected. It is necessary to unprotect it before you modify it.

Once the Invoice worksheet is protected, the next step is to display gridlines and column headings for your consulting invoicing form.

Once the gridlines and row/column headings are shown, simply click the cell next to the label "GST" - i.e. the second tax amount cell. Hit DEL key on your keyboard to delete it - this will prevent Excel from calculating the second tax. Right-click the row-heading of the row where the second tax cell resides, and then choose Hide from the shortcut menu. This will hide the entire row, including the text label and amount field of the second cell. Check the consulting invoice form - you now have only one tax on the form. If you use the free consulting invoice template, change the tax name and rate by typing the correct values into the corresponding cells.
