Custom Invoice Template Line Items doesn't show tax inclusive line amounts

1. I have created a custom invoice template(custom-1) using custom form styles and made it as default template, we upload invoices using QBO's apis, after posting data to invoices when I check the line items are exclusive tax, can we make this amount tax inclusive.

If I select some other style(standard) click save and again change the style back to custom-1 and save it,  the line items become tax inclusive attached screen shoots below for reference.

 

2. Does  QBO custom template allow us to perform some mathematical operations on fields for example I want to show net amount i.e total amount(total_amount) - total tax applied, currently we are using custom fields to show this by calculating on our end.

 

Thank you

Custom Invoice Template Line Items doesn't show tax inclusive line amounts

Hi gs-trail!

 

Thank you for taking the time to post today.

 

The invoice template has nothing to do with the inclusivity or exclusivity of taxes on the transaction. It's on the Invoice transaction page itself. You can choose either of these in the Amounts are drop list above the items table. By the way, you need to reselect the items when you switch from one to another to get the right tax calculation.

 

Speaking of calculation, the template has no calculator functions. Everything happens on the transaction page, and the template will just show the final result.

 

Let us know if you have other queries. Have a good day!

Custom Invoice Template Line Items doesn't show tax inclusive line amounts

Hi @JessT , thanks for replying, we have mentioned the amounts to be tax inclusive through API, it also shows that the amounts were tax inclusive from the beginning, but why does the amount in line items change when we save?

Hello there, gs-trail.

 

I'm here to ensure you're able to set the master invoice as the default template in QuickBooks. This way, you can select the information you want to display in your sales forms and monitor your transactions.

 

You'll see the Remove as default option once the customize invoice template is already set as the default. Since there's no option to set the master invoice as the default, it seems that it's already set as one. To verify this, let's go to the Custom form styles page. The term (default) is indicated under the Form Type column.

  1. Go to the Gear icon.
  2. Select Custom form styles.
  3. Locate the master invoice template.
  4. Under the Form Type column, if you're able to see the (default) term, this means its already used as the default template.
  5. If you're unable to see the (default) term, click the drop-down arrow under the Action column.
  6. Select the Make default option.

 

I've attached screenshots below for your reference.

On the other hand, with regards to your post in the Developer's Community,  you'll receive an email notification once there's already a response to it.

 

Moreover, in case you need more help with managing your customer transactions, kindly refer to this article: Sales and customers. It contains topics about invoices, estimates, statements, and process payments to name a few.

 

Please let me know if you have other concerns. I'm just around to help.

Custom Invoice Template Line Items doesn't show tax inclusive line amounts

Hi @JessT ,good day

When I create an invoice using api, it has an option to choose GlobalTaxCalculation values are [TaxExcluded, TaxInclusive, and NotApplicable]


what does these mean?
What I understood is when I choose taxinclusive then line item amounts are inclusive of tax provided
