Is it better to make invoices in Word or Excel?

Microsoft designed Excel for working and representing large tables of data. It supports simple to complex formulas and is very flexible. However, it’s not known for being pretty. One of the reasons is that it’s usually used internally within a company.

Invoices, however, are documents that you send out to your clients. They are a representation of you and your company. You don’t want to use a shabby and unprofessional invoice design for the same reason that you don’t greet your customers wearing tattered clothing.

Some recommend using Word instead because of its built-in templates and layout management. Word makes it quite easy to create a professional invoice.

However, Word falls short in terms of practicality and usability. It’s very hard to add in a table of line items or calculate totals and taxes.

What’s the best alternative to using Word for invoice templates?

The best option is to use tools or software designed for making invoices. You can use these tools to gain the best of both worlds! Great convenience as well as amazing style.

That’s where we come in. We’ve built our online invoice generator to be a great alternative to Word and Excel. Here are some of the added benefits of using Invoice Simple:

  • Professional layout
  • Fully customizable
  • Clients and items saved automatically
  • Simple bookkeeping for tax season
  • Online and in-person credit card processing

If you’re invoicing more than once or twice a year, it makes a lot of sense to switch to an invoicing software.
