Kleine Rechnung
(small invoice)

Fast and easy creation of invoices as PDF files.

Freelancers and small businesses have to have a way to create invoices. When you start doing business you have to worry about a lot of things. The expensive programs which can do everything often need a lot of learning, you have to buy updates every year and you can not "just create an invoice", but you have to keep your data in these programs up-to-date or they will force wrong results on you.

Some people create invoices with one of the free or not so free Office programs because they find nothing better and it is "good enough".

This software tries to fill this gap.

  • The application consists of one dialog where you enter all relevant data.
  • You create a PDF-file which you can send per e-mail or directly by post in C4 (A4) or C5 (A5) envelopes with windows.
  • Done.

You can save/load the combination of invoice sender/receiver.

The look of the invoice can be customized through setting an A4 image as background. That way you are able to have the invoice look like your corporate design.

  • There is no mangagement of customer numbers or invoice reference numbers.
  • You are able to create invalid invoices with this program. For example, if in Germany you don't give the addresses of both parties the tax office does not have to accept this as a valid invoice.

Kleine Rechnung

Schnell und einfach Rechnungen im PDF-Format erstellen.

Für Selbstständige und kleine Betriebe stellt sich - vor allem am Anfang - häufig die Frage, wie man Rechnungen erstellt, ohne eines der großen Programme kaufen zu müssen. Langwierige Einarbeitung, jährliche Zwangs-Updates und das Pflegen der Daten, die für eine korrekte Rechnung mit diesen Programmen nötig sind, schrecken manchen ab.

Selber etwas mit Office oder einem ähnlichem Produkt zu basteln, wird von vielen als alternativlos empfunden.

Diese Software "Kleine Rechnung" füllt genau diese Lücke.

  • Man gibt auf einer einzelnen Maske alle Daten einer Rechnung ein.
  • Es wird ein PDF erstellt, das direkt per Mail oder - nach Ausdruck - per Post versendet werden kann. Es ist kein Anschreiben nötig, wenn der Briefumschlag ein Sichtfenster hat.
  • Fertig.

Die Kombination Rechnungsersteller/Rechnungsempfänger kann als Datei gespeichert und geladen werden.

Das Aussehen der Rechnung kann durch das Dahinterlegen eines beliebigen Bildes im DIN A4 Format an das Firmenprofil angepasst werden.

  • Es werden keine Kundennummern oder Rechnungsnummern verwaltet.
  • Wenn man bestimmte Daten nicht angibt (z.B. die Adressen für beide Parteien) kann man natürlich trotzdem eine für das Finanzamt ungültige Rechnung erzeugen.

"screenshots with borders", I did not understand at first what you were talking about :-)
These are PDF pages in DinA4 format, because you will want to either send the pdf or just print it and send it with snake mail.

Thank you very much, I did not realize that this is a hard fact, not something which is only wanted where it makes sense.
However, I don't think I will ever get greenlighted for this, so I'll just ignore this for now.
I was busy working in different projects, so please forgive the very late answer.

Greenlight requires a video, so your project will be turned off unless you post a video soon, and screenshots are not in 16:9 ratio so they have borders

@Trade You are allowed to be proud of your own program.
I think that some people out there will like your program, too.

The program exists and is in use by me since two to three years, the question is only if people are allowed to buy it from steam.
When touching the application because of IBAN/BIC I too added a language selection and put it to greenlight. You are right, there are other programs. But I like mine. :)

I think, and this is only an opinion, there is no need for a programm which can only be used for invoices. There some good writing programms out and all of them can be used for writing invoices. Some of them supports or has a database or supports/has spreadsheets.

What? It says: 'would you buy this yes/no'. I said no for it has no use to me.
Trade  [author] Jul 21, 2014 @ 1:25pm 
There is no "down vote". You can only remove it from your queue.
And if enough people say they would buy it, then Valve is interested too.
So only "I would buy..." does something.

Worthless to me, thus downvoted
