Why New Zealand small business owners love our online invoice template

Easy to Fill Invoice Template

Many businesses use an invoice template to generate printable invoices they can send to their clients. Whether it’s repair services that involve visits to the clients’ businesses or homes or any other business where you need to collect payment as soon as you finish working, having an invoice template is handy. 

However, editing an invoice manually and resaving it to your computer is not as easy as it looks. That's why more and more people prefer to generate their NZ invoice using our invoice generator. It's very popular by NZ sole traders and other small business owners.

Creating an invoice compliant with NZ legislation is super easy with our invoice template NZ. When you are done, you can easily get a link to share it with your client, save the invoice, preview it or send it by email.

How GST works in New Zealand

The single GST rate in New Zealand is 15%. Only businesses registered for GST are charging GST on their tax invoices. Learn more below.

GST and GST registration

When starting a new business, you will not be registered for GST by default. You will need to get an NZBN and add it to every invoice.  If you register for GST, you will start generating and sending tax invoices. Only GST registered businesses will include the title 'Tax Invoice' on their invoices.

The difference is that a tax invoice will include GST details. As the business.govt.nz website states, whether you are a sole trader, contractor, in partnership or a company, as soon as you think you’ll earn more than $60,000 in 12 months, you must register for GST. You may be charged penalties if you don't register when you need to.

The GST registration process is straightforward and is handled online through myIR. You will need:

  • Your IRD number

  • Your business industry classification (BIC) code

  • Select a taxable period — either monthly, bi-monthly or six-monthly for small businesses

  • Choose an accounting basis — sole traders and small businesses may like to consider a payment basis, because you won't have to make a GST payment before you've received money from your customers

GST Returns - calculating and paying GST

Every NZ business needs to lodge an annual tax return, stating all your income and expenses for the previous tax year. A tax year starts on 01 April and finishes on 31 March  next year. 

If you register for GST, whether it is a voluntary or mandatory registration, you will be required to lodge your GST Returns - monthly, bi-monthly or six-monthly. 

The GST return can be lodged via the myIR portal. Once you submit your return, you can go back and fix mistakes. It's your responsibility to send the GST return by the due date. If you cannot complete your return on time we may charge you a late filing penalty.

To complete your GST return you'll need to know, for the taxable period and have these key inputs for your GST return at hand. You can get them from Billdu in a couple of clicks:

  • Total sales and income (from your tax invoices)

  • Total purchases and expenses

  • Adjustments from your calculation sheet.

Quick way for my small business to operate. It’s great to be able to add things on the fly.


Love this app I can send I customer a invoice or estimate before I leave their driveway!


I have needed assistance and chatted with them on the weekends, even after i have gotten the automatic message that someone will get back to me Monday morning. They have helped me in any issue i have had with my cleaning company The Busy Bees. They make any interaction feel like your a part of them. Thank you Billdu team for always helping us through our intricate times. 5 star customer service!! And if you’re in business you know customer service is everything.


Very good app for the price I do all my estimates and invoices on here but they offer way more stuff. Easy to use I’ll recommend it to my buddy’s

Dr Roden

Love It. It’s amazing for a business that’s just starting off like mine. I’m glad i found this app. It’s so easy to use!


Awesome awesome awesome. I can’t say enough of how user-friendly this app is in regard to sending estimates and invoices and the ability to pay from the electronic invoice


Best billing app I have ever used. My start with this app was shaky because the way explained on the App Store it would be billed monthly but they removed the entire years worth from my account which was low at the time. I was impressed by their rapid response and willingness to help me and keep me as a customer. I am glad I stuck around because it turned out to be the best app I have used for billing and recommend it to anyone with a business regardless of size or industry.


The app is super nice when you’re on the go and having to send invoices to customers right then. The only thing is confusing is the buying options. I had to start buying it per month because my other subscription stopped working.


Great App. I love billdu it makes my life easier to bill my customers on the go, easy to use smart phone app

REMoN nader

Very easy to use. This app has really helped my business be more mobile and agile. No more paper copies and files to have to keep. All invoices are saved and the total amounts are tight at the top of the app. I like being able to easily track how much my business has made right at my fingertips.
