View Full Version : Invoices

Why do tasks have to be logged before they appear under Task Name? I want to create billing tasks, and i don't want to have to log them before i actually invoice.
Also.. taxes? is there a way to add them?
cyberhorse is the man to answer you.
As to the second question, let me say that if you talk to cyberhorse ask him if we can get rid of taxes, I would really like to get rid of those.
I guess cyberhorse does not know that there are only two certainties in life:
Death and taxes... :(

As an alternative to trashing it, I'd rename it something like "Adjustment" and allow a user to provide comment.
Therefore if you wanted to do +5% for taxes or -5% for a discount, it'd work either way.
I have had a project or two where mishaps have happened... offering a discount - however small - is a good way to calm the customer.
Figured out a fix for calculating and displaying taxes in reports that I suppose could be easily modified to also calculate a discount for those in need. You could also add a second taxrate if you needed to. Did not have time to tinker with the database and assume that it will one day make its way into a future release...so this is a quick fix....please note: the taxes are calculated in the reports and are not added to the database.
Add the following after the "print invoice total" code in your favorite report:
// Calculate the TAX
$taxrate = 0.06; // modify tax rate accordingly
$tax = round($invTotal * $taxrate, 2); // calculate taxes where invTotal is the total of the invoice before tax
$pdf->ezText("gst: " . dPgetConfig('currency_symbol').sprintf("%.2f",$tax), 10,array('justification'=>'right')); // print tax
$pdf->ezText(''); // print space
$total = round($invTotal + $tax, 2); // add the invoice total and the tax to create total
$pdf->ezText("invoice total: " . dPgetConfig('currency_symbol').sprintf("%.2f",$total,2), 12,array('justification'=>'right')); // print total
