One of the things that I always seem to go back to is my invoices on spreadsheets. I’ve used a few different accounting packages and believe it or not, I have even seen manually written and typed invoices. I’m really not that old (or at least don’t feel it) and I’ve not been working for so long that I remember doing all this but when your family has a business, there are things that you can’t help but reminisce and now wonder at it all.
Coming back to the present day, invoices have come a long way. The last accounting package I used allowed me to create an invoice while I was away on holiday in India, from my mobile phone and send it to the client. This was really impressive and it was the first time I had the need to use it. However, I realised that there are many accounting packages and invoice packages that you can use and I have used but in that brief time when you are in between accounting and invoicing packages, I tend to go back to my good old spreadsheets just to make sure I am on top of it all.
To be honest, if you don’t raise that many invoices in the year, spreadsheets are a good way to raise and keep track of all your invoices.
With this in mind, I have created a short E-book detailing how you can go about creating an invoice on spreadsheets.
