How to Create Computerized Invoices in Poland?

I have a one-man business and am tired of writing out my invoices each month - does anyone know of a way to do these on a computer? Perhaps an application, or at very least a pdf file - I use Macintosh computers but have access to a PC if need be...

Ideally, I would like to find a program that automatically writes the amount out (in Polish, of course) after I insert the numbers. For instance, I have trouble writing the words for 2,761,00. I seem to remember Quicken doing this automatically when writing checks in the States, so I hope this option is available for invoices here.

Thanks for any constructive input!

Just set it all up through Excel once you get the formulas (automatic calculations) set up no problems. Many basic word processing programmes allow for tables to be insterted with formulas to automatically calculate VAT for example.

Calculations - nie ma problemu. I need something to print the invoice (rachunek) to give to my school once a month in order to get paid...

I just use Excel, though I don't write the words myself (I have a slave to do that).

To be honest, I'd be inclined just to ask someone at the school to do it for you - or even ask your accountant to do it for you. You could even make it a quick exercise in class - translate from "two thousand, seven hundred and sixty one" to Polish ;)

I used to use their small business accounting software for księga przychodów i rozchodów when still in PL. This software does all you want, including invoicing and VAT accounting, the link I've pasted goes directly to the invoicing component.

AFAIR, they are cheap, efficient, and the support team is quite good too. I would also get upgrades free or half price. Overall, it took a load of worry off my mind, and a lot of work off my hands ;-)
