Netherland Service Bill Sample is a variant and customization sample of c6009 Netherland Sales Invoicing Template. It differs from the original version in that it does not include the shipping address, and thus is suitable for service businesses.

On we take a relatively easy way to categorize our invoicing templates. If a form include a shipped address section, we categorize it as sales invoicing format; and if it does not, we call it a service bill form.

Netherland Service Bill Sample set its default rate to 19%, it might not meet your requirements. If you use the freeware version of this Netherland Service Bill Sample, change the tax rate by simply typing in your required value in the rate cell once the invoicing template is unprotected; if you use the Uniform Invoice Software version of this Netherland Service Invoicing Template, setting a new rate is much easier - you can do this by clicking the Settings button and then going to the Taxes tab. Uniform Invoice Software makes it much easier for you to set up your tax rules, as detailed below.

If you use the Uniform Invoice Software version of Netherland Service Bill Sample, there are additional taxing options on the Taxes tab of the Settings window. The first is the option for choosing the number of tax items; you have 3 choices - no tax, one tax and two taxes. Secondly, you can set the names and rates in percentage for each tax, such as VAT, GST or PST, or simply Sales Tax. Thirdly, there are a group of checkbox options on the dialog box, including: "Tax invoice total including shipping cost", which adds the shipping cost to the taxable amount when checked; "Tax 2 is applied to tax 1", which adds the amount of "tax 1" to the taxable amount if checked; and "tax rate can be zero", which allows you to set any of the tax rates to be the value of zero. If you modify the options on this dialog box, the spreadsheet will be changed accordingly if needed.

While the free version of Netherland Service Bill Sample 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 Netherland Service Bill Sample work for you.

The sales version of this invoicing template was originally designed with a clothing company in mind, who needed a Size ("Maat" in Dutch) column. In this service invoicing form, we keep the "Maat" column but changed to the caption to "Uur". If you don't need it, you can easily move it out of the printable form with these steps: unprotect the invoicing form, move the unwanted column, expand the Description column to cover the empty space left by moving out the "Uur" column.

The protection of the "Invoice" worksheet in Netherland Service Bill Sample 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 Netherland Service Bill Sample.

Moving a cell or a group of cells is easy in Excel. First, you click to select the cell or drag your mouse to select all the cells you want to move. And then, drag the border of the selected area to move it to the new location where you want to place the cell or cells. The moving content will overwrite the content in the target location, so make sure the target range is empty (not used) in Netherland Service Bill Sample before doing the movement. And, if the target location contains merged cells, sometimes the movement fails. So it is also helpful to make sure the target location does not contain merged cell. If the target location Netherland Service Bill Sample is overlapping the original range and the original range contains merged cells, the movement could also fail because you cannot change part of merged cell - if this happens, you need to first move the cells to a temporal location in Netherland Service Bill Sample that are empty (i.e. not used), unmerge cells, and then move the cells from the temporal location to the desired location. If you need to unmerge a cell, first select it and then click the "Merge and Center" command on the Format toolbar in Excel 2003; or click the "Merge and Center" command on the Home ribbon tab in Excel 2007, 2010 and Excel 2013.

Extending the "Description" column can be easily done with the "Merge and Center" command.

Merge and Center works by merging the selected cells into one and then centering the data in the new combined cell. While design a template layout like Netherland Service Bill Sample, Merge and Center could be a handy tool if used properly. One thing to note, however, since Uniform Invoice Software (UIS) relies on cell names (or field names) to create the relationship between the Excel form cells and the database fields, you should make sure the cell that contains a field name is the first one in the group of cells that are to be merged. This way, UIS will work with the merged cell by reading from or writing to the named cell.

One thing to note is that tested the templates, including Netherland Service Bill Sample, on Microsoft Windows (with Excel, not Word) only, and the testing on Mac was usually not performed. If you need to run Netherland Service Bill Sample on Mac, test it with Mac version of Microsoft Excel before you apply it for production purpose.

The result of removing the "Maat" column and extending the Description column can be found at Netherland Service Billing Form 2. If you are interested in a sales invoicing Format that does not include the "Matt" column, refer to Netherland Sales Invoicing Template 2.

Like other form designs here on, Netherland Service Billing Form 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.
