Step 1: Adjust the Row Height and Remove Gridlines
- First, you need to adjust row height so that it would be easy for you and the customer to read the cash bill invoice easily. So, select all the cells of a new worksheet by pressing CTRL+A. And then click on the Format drop-down from the Home From the drop-down list, select the Row Height option like the image below.

- Now write INVOICE in capital letter in the merged cells. Select font Arial and font-size 28. Also, drag the cell a little bit downward using the fill handle like the image below. You should also drag the cell horizontally in the left and right direction so that the word will fit in the cell properly. You can also change the font color. We have changed ours to Blue.
- Now we will merge cells A1, B1, and C1 to write down the company name. We will select font Arial and font-size 24 for this one.
- After that, we will write down the company credentials like Steet Address, Mail Information, Phone, Fax, Website, etc. in cells A2 to A6.
- We will enter invoice information in cells E3 to F6 like the image below. We have entered =TODAY() formula to get today’s date in the DATE cell, and add 30 to that date for the DUE DATE.

Step 4: Insert Description, Price, and Tax Amount of the Purchased Items
- We will now create a table that we will use to enter the description, tax amount, and price of every product that a customer will purchase. The image below shows the table that we will use to enter the information of the purchased product.
- Now we will calculate the final amount to be paid by the customer. In cell F33, we will sum the prices of all the products. We will call it subtotal. The formula for this will be like below:
- In the next cell (F34), we will sum up the price of the taxable products. If a product is taxable, we will put an “X” in the Taxed column of our table. We will write down the below formula, to sum up, the prices of taxable products.
This formula will add the amounts in the F17:F32 range that have corresponding “X” in the E17:E32 range.
- After that, we will enter the tax rate in the following cell (F35).
- Now, we will calculate the total tax amount in cell F36. The formula for this will be:
We will multiply the total taxable amount (F34) with the tax rate (F35) and round the result to 2 decimal points.
- Following that, we will now insert the shipping cost and discount amount if we have such amounts in cells F37 and F38.
