Detail

Contractor Billing Format differs from other templates here in that it itemizes "service" and "expense" in two separate sections on the invoice detail section. Each section has a different tax (including tax name and tax rate) applied.

Take a look at the screenshot of this invoice template, you'll easily find the differences between this template and other templates available here on InvoicingTemplate.com. There are 18 lines on the detail section, but these lines are grouped into two sections - the "Services" section and the "Expenses" section, with each section identified by a blue title bar. You can use 6 lines on each section to itemize the service and expense. The other lines are reserved for taxes and amounts.

To make this template work with Uniform Invoice Software, Contractor Billing Format adopts tricks. First, the most left column on the visible (and printable) area was a custom field "ItemLine", which was continuously named from "oknItemLine_1" to "oknItemLine_18", to tell Uniform Invoice Software that there are 18 lines on the invoice detail section. The other columns, such as "DATE", "DETAILS" and "AMOUNT", has an interruption in their name serials. For example, "oknItemDate_1" to "oknItemDate_6" are put onto same column, "oknItemDate_7" to "oknItemDate_12" are put onto another column outside the printable area, and "oknItemDate_13" to "oknItemDate_18" are put onto the same column as "oknItemDate_1" to "oknItemDate_6". This is necessary because the space for "oknItemDate_7" to "oknItemDate_12" is used by the tax and amount cells.

This template has two taxes like the default template shipped with Uniform Invoice Software. However unlike the default template, where the two taxes applied to all taxable items added to the invoice detail section, Contractor Billing Format applies each tax to one section. In this implementation, "Tax 1" was applied to the "Service" section, and "Tax 2" was applied to the "Expense" section. All the tax-calculation formulas are modified according to this design requirement.

In this Contractor Invoicing Layout, we use the "Bill To" found on the original invoice template for "Contractor", including name, Address, City State and ZIP, Phone, Email and Contractor#; and, we use the "Shipping To" section for "Client", including its Name, Address, City State and ZIP, as well as contact information.

The two custom fields added to this template, "Service Amount" and "Expense Amount", calculate the sum amount of each section. These two fields are also added to the "Sales Report", with the name "oknRsServiceAmount" and "oknRsExpenseAmount".

While there are many invoicing software apps that are able to handle simple and regular invoicing forms, Uniform Invoice Software is designed with flexibility in mind. This, with the help of Microsoft Excel, especially its formulas that allows us to define the relationship between cells (for example, how one cell is calculated from the value of the other cells), makes it possible for Uniform Invoice Software to handle complex invoicing forms and layouts. You may be still invoicing in the traditional paper way because there is no invoicing software app is able to handle the complex formats you need. Uniform Invoice Software helps you turn to electronical invoicing with easy and quick.

While the free version of Contractor Billing Format is simple, the result created by using this template is as beautiful and professional as many commercial invoicing software program, or even better. It is an ideal tool for small businesses and freelances who offer services and don't need a shipping section on their invoicing form. It is a good service bill creator, but if you need more features, like management of customers, products / service items, invoices and payments, just install Uniform Invoice Software to make all the buttons on Contractor Billing Format work for you.

Like other form designs here on InvoicingTemplate.com, Contractor Invoicing Layout is free (offered to you at a price of 0.00USD). It works on Windows XP and all newer versions of Windows, and Excel 2007, 2010, 2013 or 2016.
