Edit VAT line on Invoice

Hi All,


Good day.


Is there a way for us to edit where or on what line / row that VAT will appear? In my case, when I am creating an invoice, it will always appear at the last populated row without me finding success of how to edit and make this appear maybe after the numbers or give a little space between the last line.


Thank you.

Hello Verano47,


Thank you for dropping by here in the Community. I'm here to help configure invoice in QuickBooks Desktop.


You can try customizing the invoice template and use the layout designer to adjust the appearance of your invoice.


Here's how:


  1. Click the Lists tab at the top menu bar.
  2. Click Templates.
  3. Double-click the template.
  4. Click the Additional Customization or Layout Designer option.

Please check out this sample screenshot for your guidance:



For more insights into what you can adjust on the template, I'm adding the article I recommend on this:


Use and customize form templates.


In case you need to contact our Support Specialists in the future, I'm also adding the article I find helpful:


Contact the QuickBooks Desktop Customer Support Team.


Keep in touch with me here should you have any additional questions or concerns regarding the invoice. The Community wants to make sure you get the assistance you need.

Re: Edit VAT line on Invoice

Thanks for the time and your reply however this is not the fix. I am using Enterprise solution 2019, VAT appears on the "description box" and if you go to editing templates, there is only Sales Tax on the program columns which is not tied to VAT computation.


I am attaching the non-preview invoice or when you are creating an invoice. As seen, there is no VAT after the payment terms row. - Once you preview this, the VAT line will automatically.VAT 1.PNG

Thanks for showing us how it looks, Verano47.


I've tried this in my company file. For now, we're unable to edit the row where that VAT will appear. 


What I can do right now is to submit this concern to our management team. They will submit this to our software developers. This will be for evaluated and might be included in future updates.
