It also has a design Picker, where you can choose a colour that is most appropriate for your company.
Once the settings are specified create a list of transactions on the second sheet named Billing Statement. You can begin by writing any previous balances that needs to be taken forward in the current statement and if there are no previous balances then you can write zero over there. After this record other transactions organized by dates which includes all the invoices raised, any overdue charges or payments received. For writing the amount, use the column named "Charges" for invoice amount and charges and for the payments received, use the column named "Credits". With each transaction, you will see the overdue balance in the column "Line Total".

Once you become more familiar with the template you can simply protect these columns from unnecessary changes using Excel's Protect Sheet option.
