Detail

This Simple Lightweight Service Billing Format is designed with the "simple" and "lightweight" principle in mind. It uses only black font color, no logo image (should be printed on company letter-head paper). It's clean and ink-saving invoice design.

To make it suitable for your company letterhead paper, the invoicing template includes an empty line on the top of form. Click the "Design Mode" button on the "Invoice" ribbon tab, adjust the height of row $3 (marked with the text "Adjust the height of this row to make it suitable for your company letterhead paper"), click the "Print" button to test the print result. You may have to print several times to make it perfect for your paper design. To see another sample here on printing with letterhead papers, see Simple Invoice Sample - Printing on Letterhead Paper.

Since this is a service invoicing template, it does not requires the shipping address fields. We've retargeted the fields so they are now designed for "Service Location", including fields for contact name, address, city state and ZIP. The "Bill To" section, like most invoicing templates here on InvoicingTemplate.com, are still there.

This Simple Lightweight Service Billing Format has 4 columns on the detail section - Description, Quantity, Unit Price and Amount. The "Item#" column found on many forms here on InvoicingTemplate.com was moved out of the printable billing form. Although this column is not printed, or is not included when you are generating PDF invoices using Simple Lightweight Service Invoice Template, it is a required field for Uniform Invoice Software. An invoicing item (or line) is seen as incomplete if the item# is missing (this this case, if you want to save invoices without item# values, you have to enable "Allow incomplete lines on invoice body" option on the "Template" tab of the "Settings" dialog box (open it by clicking the "Settings" button on the invoice worksheet. Besides that, there is a useful feature assigned to the "Item#" cells by Uniform Invoice Software - you can type in the item# codes to retrieve the related description, unit price easily, so that you don't have to type in the text again and again on creating invoices. This feature is called "in-cell lookup" in Uniform Invoice Software. This feature also works for the Customer# ("oknWhoID") and Invoice# ("oknInvoiceID") cells.

This template has one tax set by default, i.e. "GST" at "5%". The tax amount is calculated automatically using Excel formulas. This template assumes all invoiced items are taxable and calculates tax total based on the sum of all items - unlike some free invoicing templates here on InvoicingTemplate.com, where a "Taxable" box is added for each item / line so that you can control whether each item is taxable. Visit our free tax invoice templates collection for more samples on customizing taxing rules.

Like other form designs here on InvoicingTemplate.com, Simple Lightweight Service Billing Format 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.
