NEW: Revised invoice formats

The format used on invoices is often a source of contention between users, and it is indeed difficult to cover the needs of every individual business, whom may have their specific requirements.

To this end, we are offering more flexibility on our invoices now, with more detailed and easier to understand breakdowns on totals for parts and labor.

The intelligent tax handling system will determine whether labor tax is shown or not, based on whether or not tax is applied to labor for a given invoice.

Below is a preview of our new invoice formats, which will be live later tomorrow.

Easier tax entry on invoices

Over the course of time it had been pointed out to us here that many US states do not allow tax on labor part of work carried out.  This has been perplexing to many new users, often concerned about applying zero tax to labor and adding tax rates for parts only. This has been another common request for our auto repair software.

Up until now, this involved setting one of the tax brackets to zero and applying that to the labor cost.

We have improved and simplified upon this by adding the option of ‘NONE’ for tax on labor, and if you do you need to apply tax to labor, the other tax brackets you set in Settings will also still be available.

We hope this clears some confusion and makes labor costing on invoices easier for those in states that do not have tax on labor.

This update will take effect on your next upgrade patch this Thursday, 15/10/15.

Stay tuned as always for more exciting new developments!
