  5. Check the box beside Other 1 and type Cartons number in the Title field.
  6. Hit OK to save the changes. invoicetemplate3b.JPG
  7. Then OK again.


Just make sure to select the correct template every time you will create an invoice. 


Then, to remove the Tax column on your invoice form, you'll have to turn it off in the Preferences menu. Let me walk you through the process:


  1. Navigate to the Edit menu and select Preferences.
  2. Go to Sales Tax and click the Company Preferences tab.
  3. From the Do you charge sales tax? field, tick the No radio button, and hit OK.  invoicetemplate4.JPG
  4. If there's a popup window, just click OK. 


Once done, you'll no longer see the Tax column whenever you create Invoices.
