Detail

Commercial Invoicing Templates is an easy way for an individual or a corporation to create commercial invoices. The free commercial invoice form produces professional invoices as good as expensive accounting systems.

Note: This free Commercial Invoicing Template was original published on our company site, UniformSoft.com, with the ID number c7011.

InvoicingTemplate.com offers this free commercial invoice template in Excel format. The template offers blank invoice forms that are highly customizable and printable. With its intuitive interface, you can fill in it just like filling a paper form with a paper. The commercial invoice is required to be furbished as a customs declaration form when exporting goods across international borders. A commercial invoice form includes necessary fields to help the importer present a detailed invoice to the custom authorities. It is presented while clearing the goods. It also includes the terms of Sale, a harmonized code for every item and tax identification of the seller as well as the buyer. The commercial invoice template helps you draft invoices with easy and quick. While there are commercial invoice templates or examples online in other formats, such as Microsoft Word or PDF, the Excel-format commercial invoice template has some interesting features, for example, the use of formulas. If you use the Uniform Invoice Software edition, the definition of custom fields is another powerful feature that shouldn't ignore. If you are looking for a guide on how to create a commercial invoice, or what is a commercial invoice, or commercial invoice examples, this free commercial invoice form, like the other samples available here on InvoicingTemplate.com, answered the question in an intuitive way.

Whether you are an individual or a corporation, the commercial invoicing template helps you create professional and beautiful invoices with quick and easy. However if you are a corporation we highly recommend the Uniform Invoice Software version. With Uniform Invoice Software installed, the commercial invoicing form becomes a powerful invoicing system, with the ability to manager customers, products, invoices and payments.

However before using the commercial invoice template to create your first commercial invoice, there are some one-time job you should do, that is to enter your own company information and replace the default logo image. Before you can do this type of customization, you have to firstly unprotect the invoice form, and then switch to design mode.

The protection of the "Invoice" worksheet in Commercial Invoicing Template prevents accidental modifications to layouts and formulas. If you have Uniform Invoice Software installed, it could even display a warning message when you close a template without protecting the worksheet. However for the purpose of this sample, we should firstly unprotect the worksheet in Commercial Invoicing Template.

In design mode, Microsoft Excel allows you to move, add, or delete controls or images inside Commercial Invoicing Template. Note that if you have our invoicing program installed, and you are running Excel 2007, Excel 2010 and Excel 2013, it already provides a Design Mode button on the ribbon tab, so that you don't have to switch to design mode manually. Our invoicing software is able to turn a simple spreadsheet into a powerful invoicing system, with the ability to manage customers, products, bills and payments, it also includes various tools that could help you configure the layout of your form, such as the number of taxes and tax names and rates. If you don't have our invoicing program installed, here are how you can switch to design mode manually.

  • In Excel 2003 click the Design Mode button on the Control Toolbox toolbar. Tip: If the Control Toolbox toolbar is invisible, click Excel menu View > Toolbars > Control Toolbox.
  • In Excel 2007, Excel 2010 and Excel 2013, click the Design Mode button in the Controls group of the Developer tab.

    TIP: If the Developer tab is not available in Excel 2007, do the following to display it: a) Click Microsoft Office Button, and then click Excel Options; b) In the Popular category, under Top options for working with Excel, select the Show Developer tab in the Ribbon check box, and then click OK.

    Or in Excel 2010 and Excel 2013 to display the Developer tab: a) Click File > Options > Customize Ribbon; b) In the area on the right, ensure that the box next to Developer is checked; c) When you click OK, the Developer tab will appear in the ribbon.

Once you have finished your design work for Commercial Invoicing Template, click the Design Mode button again to exit design mode.

Once the form is unprotected and switched to design mode, you simply type in your own business name, address, city state and ZIP, contact phone and web site etc., on the top of the form.

(Note that if you have installed the latest version of our invoicing software, Uniform Invoice Software, which is able to upgrade a simple template in Microsoft Excel spreadsheet format into a complete invoicing system, you don't have to replace the logo image manually - you can replace the default logo image by clicking the "Replace Logo Image" button on the ribbon tab in Excel 2007, Excel 2010 and Excel 2013). To replace the default LOGO image in Commercial Invoicing Template with your own image, follow the steps below:

  • Right click the Logo image, and then select Properties from the menu.
  • Click the Picture property, and then click the "..." button.
  • Browse to the folder containing your icon file. Select and open the icon file.
  • Close the Properties dialog box.
  • Drag the border of the image object to resize it, if needed.

If you don't need the LOGO image and want to delete it, simply hit the DEL key on your keyboard after you selected it with your mouse key. Deleting the LOGO image leaves an empty area to the left of the Company Information section. You may like to move the entire Company Information section to fill in the empty area. To do this: Drag your mouse to select the entire Company Information area, including Company Name, Street Address, City, ST Zip Code, etc.; Push your mouse key on the border of the selected area; drag it to the new location.

Once you have entered your company information and set up your own logo image, you should exit design mode by clicking the design mode button again. It is also highly recommended to protect the commercial invoice form. Without a hard learning curve, now you can start creating your commercial invoices!
