Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Using an Excel invoice template can suit your freelance or small business when you need more complex invoices requiring multiple line items.  However, Excel may only be appropriate for users who are comfortable with using tables, numbers and formulas.  If you prefer a more straightforward approach, using our Word invoice templates may be a better alternative for making basic invoices where you want to combine text and graphics.

Using our Microsoft Excel invoice templates offers more advanced features for managing and tracking your invoices.  This is important especially when you have a high volume of invoices or you want to set your business up for long-term growth.  As a file format based on formulas and cells, you can easily automate calculations for repeat invoices and generate reports using our Excel invoice templates. 

Ultimately, deciding between using our Excel or Word invoice templates depends on your needs and preferences. Save time by using one of invoice templates in other file formats (like Word, Google Sheets, Google Docs and PDF) that are pre-designed with the key sections that you need. However, our Excel invoice templates are still completely customizable.

Microsoft Excel is a fantastic data entry software but it isn’t built for invoicing. Using Excel invoice templates isn’t as time efficient as using an invoice generator like Bookipi Invoice. While still quicker than document creation software like Microsoft Word, you still need to spend time formatting when you use an Excel invoice template.  Invoice design is still an important reflection of how you run your business to clients.  You don’t want clients to form an impression based on messy and unprofessional invoicing. 

You can make professionally designed invoices with a few clicks using Bookipi software.  Your invoices are also automatically organized based on issue date or invoice number. Save customers and items in your account so that you can speed up making any future invoices. Accept online signatures from clients with our integrated eSign feature. You can also accept credit card payments with Bookipi Invoice so your clients can pay you directly from your invoices.

To create an invoice in Excel, follow these steps:

  1. Open Excel and create a new spreadsheet.
  2. Set up your invoice layout by adding headers for important details such as “Invoice Number,” “Date,” “Client Information,” “Description,” “Quantity,” “Rate,” “Amount,” etc.
  3. Enter your company information and the recipient’s details.
  4. Enter the invoice items, including a description, quantity, rate, and calculate the amount for each item.
  5. Add up the total amount due and include any applicable taxes or discounts.
  6. Customize the appearance of your invoice by formatting cells, adding borders, or using colors.
  7. Save your invoice template for future use or print it out to send to your client.

Remember to review and double-check your invoice for accuracy before sending it to your client. Or consider using our invoice software to create online invoices, collect payment and more!
