Australian GST Invoice Template is a sample of customization of the default sales invoice template. Australian GST Invoice Template implements the invoice layout and form according to Australian Government / Australian Taxation Office requirements.
Note: a revised version of this template could be found at ABN Tax Invoice Template.
Australian GST Invoice Template was designed according to the guidelines of Australian Taxation Office "How to set out tax invoices and invoices (NAT 11675)". While this is sample invoice template, like all the other blank invoice templates available here on InvoicingTemplate.com, is also created from the default sales invoice template shipped with Invoice Manager for Excel, we've customize the template to meet the standards recommended by Australian Taxation Office.
Why standardize the way tax invoices and invoices are set out? As Australian Taxation Office stated, the voluntary standards have been developed in consultation with small business, in response to feedback about their frustration with inconsistent tax invoice and invoice formats. The standards will help achieve greater consistency in the set out of tax invoices and invoices, making it easier for recipients to locate the necessary information for tax purposes. For more information about the specific requirements of a tax invoice, refer to Australian Taxation Office: Valid tax invoices and GST credits (NAT 12358), 'Section 03 - Issuing and obtaining tax invoices' in GST for small business (NAT 3014).
As always Australian GST Invoice Template is offered in Excel spreadsheet format.
There are two editions of Australian GST Invoice Template here on InvoicingTemplate.com - the first is a budget-friendly freeware edition, which you can download and use for free; and another which must be used with Invoice Manager for Excel installed. Invoice Manager for Excel is our Excel invoicing software that turns a simple Excel spreadsheet billing template into a powerful invoicing system, making automated electronic invoice processing with Excel possible and easy to do.
This customized invoice template is suitable for companies whose goods or services include GST. As Australian Taxation Office and the law required, the billing form should include information as detailed below.
- the identity of the supplier, such as the business name at the top
- the Australian business number (ABN) of the supplier at the top, near the supplier's identity
