Download our amazing looking blank invoice templates and billing samples in Excel format (".xls" or ".xlsx") for free, which enable you to easily create invoices and bills as easy as filling in a paper form. No hard learning curve like dealing with some complex and expensive accounting / bookkeeping systems. All the templates are printable with either Excel or Uniform Invoice Software, or you can choose to generate PDF invoices and then send electronically with email.
The blank templates offer a what-you-see-is-what-you-get experience on creating invoices. The layouts mimic paper sheet forms. For example, if you want to fill in customer information, simply click one of the empty cells inside the "Bill To" section, and then start typing (or choose an existing customer by clicking the on-sheet picker button to bring up a list of all customers).
We choose to create the templates in Microsoft Excel spreadsheet format, instead of Word (".doc" or ".docx") format, for the reasons explained here.
The empty cells (fields) that you should fill in are identified by names. This enables you to move the cells (fields) around the form within the printable area without breaking the relationship defined by using Excel formulas. This means that, our blank invoicing forms are customizable by dragging and dropping. See this document for more details.

In the previous billing sample c3019 Blank Service Invoice Template with Image Border, we demonstrates how to use an image as a border of your invoices and bills. The image border used with c3019 is some abstract lines with a pair of big quotations on the top-left and bottom-right corners.
On the bottom of the form, besides the usual "Subtotal", "Tax" and "Total" fields, it also adds space for "Cashier's Signature" (this is for printing purpose only - not a field saved to database), and "Guest's Signature", with a declaration like "I agree that my liability for this bill is not waived and agree to be held personally liable in the event that the indicated person, company or association fails to pay for any part or the full amount of the these charges".
The image border was added to the template as a background image or watermark. It occupy respectable space of the printable invoicing form so we need to reduce the number of visible rows from 12 (as implemented in the original template) to 8. We also set al the paper margins to leave space for the image border. To make space for quotation mark on the top-left corner, we move the logo image, which you should replace with your own business logo before you create your own invoices, to the bottom part.

Uniform Invoice Software (formerly Excel Invoice Manager) was built with flexibility in mind. It supports custom fields, which you (as an end-user of the invoicing program) could add to database tables and have them mapped to cells on your Excel invoicing template. This, combined with powerful Excel features, such as formulas, makes the invoicing system built based Uniform Invoice Software flexible enough to handle complex business requirements. For example, to implement discount, you can add it either as a percentage, or as an amount value. So a simple discount field is not enough for you? We have samples here on InvoicingTemplate.com that implements 5 pricing levels, at Five Price Levels (Service, Amount, Custom Column), and Five Price Levels (Service, Amount).
Uniform Invoice Software is a special invoicing software app that uses Excel invoice templates as the front-end. The program is implemented as an Excel add-in program that runs inside Microsoft Excel. So after installing Uniform Invoice Software, you won't see a shortcut to the program as many other programs. What you'll see is a shortcut to the default invoicing format that is shipped with the setup program of Uniform Invoice Software. This default invoicing template is just the sample of the templates supported by Uniform Invoice Software. You can easily replace it with new templates available here on InvoicingTemplate.com. Simply download the template you like, extract the template (each template usually comes with a database file), and then double-click to open the template you like.
Depending on your local laws, and sometimes it even is depending on where your customer resides, you may charge no tax, one tax or two taxes. Setting up tax options would not be a problem if Uniform Invoice Software is already installed on your computer, as you could simply go to the Settings window and then Taxes tab to set the configurations. However if it is not, you have to unprotect the spreadsheet manually and set the tax rules manually. To simplify this procedure for those users, this template, "Basic Blank Service Invoice Format (Two-taxes)", "Basic Blank Service Invoice Format (Two-taxes)", is added here as a free downloadable template on InvoicingTemplate.com. If you have to charge two taxes, the only thing left for you to customize is entering your own company name and replacing the default logo image. To do this, you first need to unprotect the Excel spreadsheet.
We've already released a number of samples in the sales invoice template category. For example, some of the most popular titles are - Simple Sales Invoice Template; Sample Sales Invoice Template: Fixed Items - which shows you how to make one or several items fixed (being static) on the invoice detail (invoice body) section, so that they will not change from invoice to invoice; Sales Invoice Template with Discount Percentage Column, Netherland (NZ) Sales Invoice Template.
All templates that work with Uniform Invoice Software should be protected. This is highly recommended because without the protection, it is very easy to overwrite the static text labels (such as your company name, the column headings etc.) For this reason, Uniform Invoice Software even prompts on closing a template - if a template is not protected and you try to close it, it will prompt and ask you whether you want to protect it.
Many businesses entities don't need so many lines on their invoice body as what offered by c2018 Blank Sales Format (No-tax), but they need more space on the description fields to write done more details about the products and goods offered. With this customized template, we hide a half of lines (6 lines) from the invoice body and make each visible line taller to fit multiple lines of text. In Microsoft Excel, a cell is able to hold much text than general product description needs, but there is one key option you need to set to have the text in the cell shown properly, i.e. the "Wrap Text" option.
