    Default Invoicing software/website?

    Hi,

    I've started a new contract where I have to invoice directly rather than through an agency. Does anybody know of any free software or websites for generating invoices? I can upgrade my accountancy software (an extra £12pm) to deal with this but was wondering if there are any free or cheaper alternatives first?

    Thanks

    If you've got word processing software, you can just create invoices in that, it's quick and easy, but not integrated into any accounting software.

    Does your accountant use Freeagent? If so they can be created in there.

    Otherwise just use a word template

    invoice template - Google Search

If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Can I ask how much you're paying for accountancy software that doesn't do invoices as standard?

    It had better be ******* free...

    How do you invoice the agency? It's no different than invoicing direct. I suspect you mean you have a self billing arrangement with the agency.

    My accounts system generates invoices and can directly email them to the company if I want them to. I would expect any accounts package to have that function.

    Before I moved to my current system, I used to create my invoices using an Excel template I created. One tab per invoice so all billing for the year was in one file with a summary sheet that aggregated the data.

    If you don't know how to create an invoice, you should start here to make sure you know what's legally required:

    Invoicing and taking payment from customers: Invoices - what they must include - GOV.UK

    I'd upload a very old Excel template, but I do not seem to have that privilege.

    Mods? Pretty please?
