You can do this from the Settings menu when you’re logged into Xero – choose General Settings > Invoice Branding
This page in our Help Centre has full details:

I have a problem.
I started using Xero on 01 April 2011, but didn’t enter my opening balance.
i have tried to do it, but the program tells me I am locked out and can’t enter dates prior to 01 April, which means I can’t enter an opening balance.
What do i do?

@Bede, A lock is applied automatically but you can change it or if you have the Financial Advisor role you can make edits prior to the date – this should explain it

Hello all, I need our invoices to display both GST exclusive and inclusive totals on a single line, with a total at the bottom and a GST amount for the entire invoice underneath it. I have tried editing the template (.docx) but can’t get it to do what I want it to. Can anyone help me? This is critical to our business as a client that we provide services for needs to see individual amounts, and we are invoicing hundreds of items from inventory on a single invoice and need our inventory items to display GST exclusive with a tax inclusive total at the end, with grand totals of GST and total price at the bottom.

Sorry for the long-winded story above but perhaps a bit hard to explain without an invoice to show you!
