The standard invoice comes up automatically, while the custom.docx uses Microsoft Word to create a customised invoice.

To customise a standard invoice, select New Branding Theme and click on Standard. This will bring up a new window that has many  different fields you can customise in your standard Xero invoice template.

  • Margins and fonts

  • Tax number
  • The columns in your invoice
  • Your address


Once you’ve completed these, click Save.


Customise the branding options and click Save

6.  You will then be able to see this template below the standard one. You can edit it by clicking on Options and upload your logo.


Your templates are listed and editable

7. To upload your logo just click Upload Logo and choose your image from the file and click upload. Your image will then appear on the invoice.
