From your General Settings > Invoicing, you can decide whether you want to use the advanced or the standard invoice layout.

We recommend using the standard version, as it is created automatically and you don't need to change details in your template editor. It takes all company and tax details from your general settings, as well as your company address and logo.

Standard Invoice Version (recommended)

When the Standard layout, 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 and other table columns.

Advanced Invoice Version (can do, but not ideal)

The advanced invoice template can be customised in the Automation Section of your Backoffice (you can only see this template if you chose the Advanced Invoice Version in your General Settings). Please note that the invoice table cannot be customised with this invoice layout.


Settings for the Standard Layout

Invoice table columns

Choose from the 15 different table column options the ones your invoices require and, if necessary, rearrange the order by dragging and dropping them desired position on the list. Options higher on the list will be displayed more towards the left on the invoice column and those lower towards the right.

Invoice line grouping

Taking the booking below as an example, you can see how the invoice table will look depending on the option selected.

  • ITEMISED: all different items are displayed on a separate line.

  • PACKAGE: all items within the package are grouped on one line. If items in the booking have different Tax rates, there will be one line for each different Tax rate.

  • HYBRID: Base package items and accommodation will be grouped on one line (or more, depending on Tax rates) and Optional / Cross-selling items will be displayed on a separate line.

Numbering

Once an invoice is closed, it will be numbered according to the sequence and the settings below. Make sure to set these up before closing any invoices. Closed invoices cannot be reopened or edited.

If you will display the day, month or location of the invoice in the numbering, make sure to use curly brackets { } and not parentheses ( ).

Header

The text introduced in this section will override the default header of the standard template.

Footer

When using the standard template, the text introduced in this section is displayed at the bottom of your invoice/credit note. Use it to display some static text (e.g address, bank number, etc.)
