    The invoices generated by the addon do not display an invoice number, although this is a legal requirement in many countries. In contrast to the booking numbers invoice numbers need to be sequential.

    Without support for an invoice number the addon is useless for us.

    Thanks for your comment. As I’ve noted in another topic this option has not been released yet. I’ve added your upvote to this task. Could you please provide a link with an official statement were are described the requirements for invoice sequential numbering in your country? This will help us to fulfill this request correctly. Thanks.

    The legal requirements for Germany are in the Umsatzsteuergesetz:

    (4) Eine Rechnung muss folgende Angaben enthalten:

    eine fortlaufende Nummer mit einer oder mehreren Zahlenreihen, die zur Identifizierung der Rechnung vom Rechnungsaussteller einmalig vergeben wird (Rechnungsnummer),

    4. An invoice shall contain the following information:

    a sequential number with one or more series of numbers, which is assigned once by the issuer of the invoice to identify the invoice (invoice number),

    Please also see where the same issue is covered for WooCommerce.

    Hello there,

    Yes, I am following your concerns regarding invoice requirements in Germany, however, there are also the following points in the law:

    In order to avoid the appearance of having only just started in business I do not want to start at Invoice no.1 and would prefer to commence with, say, Invoice no 1135. Is this allowed?

    Yes, as long as the invoice series runs consecutively from that point.

    What if there is a break in sequence, for example where I cancel an invoice or it is spoiled and never issued to a customer?

    As long as you retain the cancelled or spoiled invoice in your accounting records, or you can provide an explanation for the break in sequence, this is acceptable.

    The plugin is successfully used by other German, so I believe these requirements are not that strict considering points I have provided above.
    Anyway, we will still consider the sequential numbering option.

    I have the same issue – the invoice number is missing completely 🙂

    Have you managed to find a solution?

    Thank you!

    Hi Andreas,

    It is possible to override the following file /mphb-invoices/templates/invoice_template.html You can check if you can customize on your own for now.

    Hi everyone,

    We’re delighted to let you know that we’ve recently released the update for Hotel Booking PDF Invoices addon v. 1.4.0 with the possibility to set custom sequential ID’s for generated invoices. Please note that it’s recommended to update the Hotel Booking plugin to at least v. 5.0.0 in order for the new feature to function properly.

    Best regards,
    Andre Flores
