Why is my labour appearing twice on my invoices

The purpose of this article is to explain why you may have labour items listed twice on your invoices.

This comes from the combination of 2 settings.

Settings > Company Settings > Invoice Settings

    • Having the invoice template as ‘Print Labour Style’
    • Hide part numbers.

Labour Style Template

The print labour style template copies the description of the labour product and creates a heading above the item line.

The ‘Print labour style’ template is designed to work best labour line notes. See screenshot below.

This puts the labour notes between the labour item heading and the item line. With labour item notes the labour line doesn’t appear as a redundant duplication.

Hide Part Numbers

When you hide the part number the description is moved to the left. Which results in the the description appearing to be duplicated for no reason.
