The new ‘Standard ‘ version will give your invoices more detail, a more professional look and an actual breakdown of tax rates.
What’s new with the standard version?
The standard version is created automatically and you not need to change details in your template section. It takes all company and tax details from your general settings such as your company address and logo.
Your invoices now have a header that contains both your company’s and the customer’s contact details. You can also customise the header and add booking references and other information that you consider important.
The option to add a footer allows you to subtly add payment terms and handling to your invoices.
Several columns make your invoices clearer and easier to understand for your customers.
More detailed item description
Your invoices can now not only show the name, quantity and price of your items, but can also show the tax component for each product.
Breakdown of tax rates
The new invoice now also contains a separate small table on the bottom left that breaks down your total taxes into different tax rates such as food, accommodation and more.
Advanced vs Standard Invoice Version
The advanced invoice template can be customised in the Automation section of your Backoffice. Please note that the invoice table cannot be customised.
Leaving the Layout setting to ‘Advanced’ means you keep your existing invoice template as listed in the Templates module. It gives you more freedom in designing the look and feel of your invoice though you have no control over the invoice table.
When switching to ‘Standard’ Bookinglayer uses a standard invoice template that has proven to work for most businesses and is easier to maintain. The main advantage of the new Standard version is a fresher look and the addition of the breakdown of tax rates.
How do I start using the new template?
In your Backoffice, go to your General Settings and choose Invoicing. Under ‘Layout’ you will now be given the option to choose between different template versions.
Choose the ‘Standard’ version, press save and wait for the page to reload. You will now be able to add your header and footer on the right side.
If you do not add anything to the header it will automatically fill in your company’s information. A footer will only appear on your invoice if you add text.
