Detail

This basic sales invoice template offers the same form design and format as the default sales invoice template shipped with Uniform Invoice Software, but translated to / added French text labels so that it is suitable to send to clients who use French. If you are running a service business please see Basic Service Invoice Template.

Basic Sales Invoice Template in French / General Sales Invoicing Form in French could be a simple example on how to customize the invoice template shipped with Uniform Invoice Software. The "Customizing the Invoice Template" chapter in Uniform Invoice Software details the technique details on this topic. Basically, there are 3 steps involved in replacing the default English labels with Labels in French - unprotect Invoice worksheet, display gridlines and row / column headings, enter your own text labels to replace the ones you want to replace.

The protection of the "Invoice" worksheet in Basic Sales Invoice Template in French 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 Basic Sales Invoice Template in French.

To show gridlines and row/column headers in Excel 2000 - 2003:

  1. Click and activate the worksheet you want to display gridlines and row/column headers for.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the View tab.
  3. Under Window options, check the Gridlines and Row & Column Headers check boxes.

After your customization, go back to the Tools menu, Options, View tab. Under Window options, REMOVE the checks you previously placed by the two check boxes to hide gridlines and row/column headers. This will restore the appearance of your template.

To show/hide gridlines and row/column headers in Excel 2007, Excel 2010 and Excel 2013:

  1. Click and activate the worksheet you want to display gridlines and row/column headers for.
  2. Go to the View tab of the Ribbon.
  3. Click Show/Hide, and then check or uncheck the Gridlines and Headings options.

The gridlines and row/column headings could help a lot when design the layout of the form.

To replace a label in English, such as "Invoice", with its French version, such as " FACTURE". With this implementation offered by InvoicingTemplate.com, we simply added a French label to its English version, so that "Invoice" on the default sales invoice template is now shown as " FACTURE/ INVOICE". The other examples are: "Bill To" becomes " Vendu à/Bill To", "Ship To" becomes "Expédié à/ Ship To", "Quantity" becomes " Qté/Qty ", "Price" becomes " Prix/Price", "Sub-Total" becomes " Sous-Total/ Sub-Total", "Paid" becomes " Payé/ Paid", "Total Due" becomes "Montant Dû/ Total Due", "THANK YOU" becomes " MERCI/ THANK YOU". The purpose of this sample is to demonstrate how easy it is to customize the our Excel invoicing templates, like what other samples on InvoicingTemplate.com show you.

This template has two taxes set on the bottom of this invoicing form, " TPS/GST 5.000%" and " TVQ/QST 9.975%", which is suitable for Quebec Canada. If you need to modify this, type in your own tax names and rates in the proper cells. If you use the Uniform Invoice Software edition of this Basic Sales Invoice Template in French, it offers even more options for you to define your tax system.

If you use the Uniform Invoice Software version of Basic Sales Invoice Template in French, 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.
