As a consultant you need a beautiful invoicing template to bill your clients, yet the template should be simple and easy to use. Simple Consulting Invoice Template might be your choice for creating invoices.

Like Simple Service Invoice Template / Simple Service Billing Format, Simple Consulting Invoice Template / Simple Consulting Billing Format does not include the shipping address section on the printable invoicing form. If you need the shipping address fields, try Simple Sales Template / Simple Sales Billing Format. offers these templates in two edition, one freeware edition that could be used without installing Uniform Invoice Software, and another edition that should be used with Uniform Invoice Software installed. Uniform Invoice Software is our billing and invoicing software that is able to turn a simple Excel invoice spreadsheet into a powerful and easy to use invoicing program.

Once you have installed Uniform Invoice Software, for example, you can easily pick up a customer by clicking the button on the invoicing form if it is a returned customer. You can also easily find an existing invoice by using the search bar. Almost all fields of an invoice is searchable on the search bar, such as invoice#, invoice date, sales rep. name, customer information (customer#, name, address, city state zip, phone), shipping address, product information, totals, taxes, etc.

Simple Consulting Invoice Template / Simple Consulting Billing Format differs from Simple Service Invoice Template / Simple Consulting Billing Format in that the consulting invoice template has a new field, "Project Description" added to the invoicing form, which is placed at the location where the shipping address fields appear on the Simple Sales Invoice Template / Simple Sales Billing format. The project description field is implemented as a custom field.

Uniform Invoice Software support custom fields or user-defined fields, which is a unique feature that allows you to add new fields to the backend database as well as to the spreadsheet form. Simple Consulting Invoice Template uses custom fields to implement the features that are not available in the default template shipped with the invoicing program. With the support for custom fields in the database, Uniform Invoice Software has the ability to manipulate the newly added fields in database, includes adding them to reports. With the support for custom fields in the Excel worksheet, our invoicing app has the ability to create the relationship between fields - for example, one field should be the sum of the other fields, or the value of one field should be calculated only when another field value equals a certain value.

The support for custom fields makes it possible for even an end user who does not know programming at all, could add new features to her/his invoicing creator such as Simple Consulting Invoice Template without writing one line of programming code. Feel free to Search and download more samples. Sometimes our customization samples are offered in two editions here on, that are one freeware edition, and another edition that works only with our invoicing software installed.

When working with Uniform Invoice Software (UIS) version of Simple Consulting Invoice Template, how does UIS know to which cell when a field value write to when loading data from the database, and to which field a cell value must save when saving an invoice record, a customer or a product item? That is, how does UIS create the map or relationship between Excel cells on the template Simple Consulting Invoice Template and database fields? The answer is by using names. For example, if the field name in the Product table in a database is "ProductType", it is writing to a cell named "oknProductType_?" (where ? is the line number of the invoicing item) when you pick up a product or item on creating an invoice, and when saving an invoice, all cells with the name "oknProductType_?" are saved to the "ProductType" field in the "InvBdy" database table. By using cell names, UIS allows you to move a cell on the form without breaking the feature depending on the field / cell. You can place the "Product Type" column either inside the printable area, which is printed when you issue the Print command in Excel or click the Print command on the "Invoice" worksheet form; or place the Product Type column outside the printable area, which will be included when you print or extract an invoice or receipt.

Like other form designs here on, Simple Consulting 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.
