To make your invoice legally compliant it must show certain information. This template, designed by, meets the requirements by New Zealand Inland Revenue and is capable of tax (GST) calculation.

According to New Zealand Inland Revenue, for a tax invoice to be valid it must have:

  • the words "tax invoice" in a prominent place
  • the name and registration number of the supplier
  • the name and address of the recipient
  • the date the tax invoice is being issued
  • a description of the good and services supplied
  • the quantity or volume of the goods and services supplied and either:
    1. the total amount of tax charged, the consideration excluding tax and the consideration inclusive of tax, or
    2. the consideration for the supply and a statement that includes the tax charge.

    GST, stands for Goods and Services Tax, is a value added tax, implemented in Canada, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore etc. Goods and services tax (GST) is a tax on most goods and services in New Zealand, most imported goods, and certain imported services. GST is added to the price of taxable goods and services at a rate of 15%. GST in New Zealand is designed to be a broad based system with few exemptions. Exceptions that do exist include rents collected on residential rental properties, donations, precious metals and financial services. End-users pay this tax on all liable goods and services directly, in that the purchase price of goods and services includes GST. GST-registered organizations and individuals pay GST only on the difference between GST-liable sales and GST-liable supplies (i.e., they pay GST on the difference between what they sell and what they buy: income less expenditure). This is accomplished by reconciling GST received (through sales) and GST paid (through purchases) at regular periods (typically every two months, with some qualifying companies opting for one-month or six-month periods), then either paying the difference to the Inland Revenue (IRD) if the GST collected on sales is higher or receiving a refund from IRD if the GST paid on purchases is higher.

    This template, New Zealand Tax Invoice Template, or New Zealand Tax Billing Form, is implemented in a way so that the prices does not including tax.

    As a Excel-based template, it is easy to implement the auto-calculation of tax by using formulas.

    As you can see from New Zealand Tax Invoice Template, one benefit of using Excel as your invoice creator, as compared to other template formats like Microsoft Word invoice template and PDF invoice template, HTML format or even Photoshop format, is that you can easily apply formulas to do calculations. This means that, once the basic figures are entered on the form, like Quantity and Unit Price, or Hours and Hourly Rate, or Days and Daily Rate, the calculation of totals and taxes is done automatically.

    The template has 4 columns on the invoice detail section - Quantity, Description, Unit Price, Line Total. The form includes a shipping address section so that you can fill it if necessary. Like most templates here on, the New Zealand Tax Billing Form also includes logo image placeholder, which you can replace with your own logo image.

    (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 New Zealand Tax Invoice 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.

    If you don't need the shipping address section to appear on invoice form, it is easy to move the entire shipping address section out of the print area.

    The printable area, or print area, is the area with white background on the center of the New Zealand Tax Invoice Template spreadsheet. By default Microsoft Excel prints the entire worksheet when you issue the print command, but if the worksheet has a print area defined, such as what we do for New Zealand Tax Invoice Template, only the print area will print. You can add cells to expand the print area as needed, and you can clear the print area to print the entire worksheet again. If you need to recreate the print area definition, here are what to do: On the "Invoice" worksheet of the New Zealand Tax Invoice Template, select the cells that you want to define as the print area; On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Print Area, and then click Set Print Area.

    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 New Zealand Tax Invoice Template 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 New Zealand Tax Invoice Template 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 New Zealand Tax Invoice Template 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.
