I use QB Pro 2006. Last season was the first time, and now I want to reformat the invoice. I had too many cases where a customer paid the "subtotal" not the "customer balance due." The "sales tax" amount was not in the payment, and had to be carried over until the next invoice. I am reformatting the template, taking out the "credits" line, leaving only the "subtotal" "sales tax" and "total." I want to make the bottom of the invoice a tear-off, with an "amount submitted" line, to be returned with the check. Perhaps forcing people to write in an amount, with a question, "Is this the "total" amount of your invoice?" will help them to look more closely at the right amount. Apparently, having a few lines below the box with work descriptions proved to be too confusing. And, no, it wasn't the customers I would have expected to have trouble --- several very asute people made the mistake. This leads me to believe the problem is mine, and I need to fix it. The other choice I thought about was to include a sales tax amount on each line item on the invoice, with only a "total" dropping down the bottom. The 'total" would be the only numerical amount they would see at the bottom. Has anybody created and used a template with a "tear-off" as I described? I see nothing in the standard templates, but believe I should be able to make one.
