Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Invoices X is an OS X application to create and manage invoices.
Using Invoices X the user is able to create and manage invoices in his own language, according with his own country's fiscal rules.
( SEE ALL OUR APPS. WE HAVE 25 APPS HERE ON THE APP STORE! )
The application layout is the same used in many Mac applications, based on multiple panels interfaces where selecting an element, details of the selected panel are shown in another one.
The app allows to create two different kinds of invoice inside any document:
• Plain Invoice
• Tabled Invoice
The plain layout allows to insert a free format description of sold services and goods, with an extended length.
The table format allows to insert various items inside a table, with unit price, quantity and total price.
The user, needs to insert at the first launch of Invoices X, data regarding his company:
• Invoices head, also using pictures
• Preferences about tax (in accordance with his own country rules)
The remaining data to insert are the one to put in the invoices, accessible via the panels interface we said above:
• Invoices list
• Customers list
• Plain description of goods and services to sell, with an extended text only format
• Tabled description of goods and services to sell, usable inside a table with price per unit, sold units and calculated total
• Notes and text list to be used as footer inside invoices with various text (as example payment methods)
• Notes and text list to not be included inside the printed invoice but for internal use only
Once these data are inserted, they are saved inside the document for later use.
To create new invoices it will be possible to reuse previously inserted data using them with just a click, even without the keyboard.
If the user needs it, it is possible to create an invoice inserting new goods and services and new customers never inserted, inserting the data for the first time at the invoice creation time.

Unbelievabley Disappointed In Both Quality and Support
Having installed Lion, rendering Quickbooks obsolete, I needed a simple invoice solution and purchased this app. I strongly recommend you do not make the same mistake I did. The quality of this App is that of a student programmer that just completed their first Cocoa program. Sure it has an interface, but it's painfully primitive. You can tell that it's using the built in functionality of Cocoa, but no extra effort is put in to make it easy to use or customizable. You can not control what columns to show or in what order they appear with tabled items. You can change some font characteristics in the input view, but the changes are not reflected in the Form view. The invoice prints with the text actually running into the lines of the invoice: their second screen shot is not the result I see. I emailed the developer with my concerns and issues. The first line of my detailed description of my issues (complete with attached invoice as an example) was "after reading the manual and going through the help I can't seem to get a proper invoice printed with your software". Their reply was - "Please read the manual and the user guide included with the App". I've begun the process of trying to get my $40 back!
