Frequently Asked Questions

Can I customise the Excel invoice template with my business logo and branding?
Yes, it’s easy to add your business logo and branding to the top of the FreshBooks invoice template. You can also customise the template’s colours and graphics or change the font to match your branding for a cohesive look.
Can I add a section for notes or comments on the Excel invoice?
Yes, you can add comments and notes to your Excel invoice by right-clicking on a cell and selecting “New Comment” or “New Note,” entering your comment, and selecting “Post” or clicking outside the cell. The reader can see anything written there, and they can also respond if they wish.
Does the Excel invoice template include tax calculations?
The Microsoft Excel template does not automatically include tax calculations, but with a few easy tweaks, you can have the spreadsheet calculate totals for you. With FreshBooks, on the other hand, your VAT on invoices is automatically calculated, saving you the time and headache of doing the math yourself.
Is the Excel invoice template suitable for small businesses?
Yes, the template is customisable and simple to use, perfect for a small business that requires a no-fuss, professional-looking invoicing template to send out to clients. Whatever industry or sector you are in, there is a suitable template for your needs (and your customers).
Is Excel good for invoicing?
Yes, if you are only sending out the occasional invoice. When your small business requires an efficient invoicing solution, accounting software like Freshbooks UK might be  a better fit. FreshBooks accepts payments, saves all invoices on the cloud, sends recurring invoices, and takes care of other important tasks for you automatically.
