How to calculate Due Dates automatically? 

By default the template allows manual entry of due dates. If, in your small business, there is a standard term used such as Net 30 or Net 45, then we can automate this calculation. To create Due Date always as (Invoice Date + 30), just type =[@[INVOICE DATE]]+30 in cell D15.

  • Hello

    When trying to set up formula for Due Date =( then I highlight Invoice Date) +60 enter
    i get an error message about Circular Reference and date 1/0/1900 shows int he row.

    I’ve tried googling and cannot seem to resolve it

    Thank you

    • Thank you for showing interest in our template.

      I tried adding the formulas as =[@[INVOICE DATE]]+60 in due date column and it is working fine without circular reference error.

      In excel all dates are numbers and starts from 01-01-1900 which is equivalent to number 1. Hence when you add 60 days when invoice date cell is empty, it will add 60 days from 01-01-1900. However, if it is showing 01-0-1900 it refers to 0. It could have caused due to circular reference error.

    I downloaded the template and started using it. It is amazing how easy it seems now to follow up on invoices. Thank you so much.

    I have a question about the due dates, it used to show me due date 1-30 days and 31-60 days (in the past due age column) But now it only shows 1-30 days even when I have invoices past due 60 days. I’m not sure what I did here. Could you pls advise about this?

  • Can I check if my outstanding amount is $0, why do I sees the status as Past Due or Overpaid instead of Paid in Full ?

    • Thank you for using our template.

      As mentioned in email, since you have multiplied the total with 1.07 without rounding off to two digit. The due amount is not exactly 0 and it has values in 3rd or 4th decimal.

      Best wishes.
