The plugin in the PRO version allows you also to create both reverse charge invoices and invoices with correct VAT according to the customer type (individual or company) 100% automatically. This is possible thanks to the built-in EU VAT number validation for the invoice (you may call this feature an eu vat invoice checker if you will).

Reviews

May 22, 2021
My review is a big thank you to the developers. I run a small WooCommerce shop and sadly did I had issues with creating PDF invoices. No longer. With Flexible PDF invoices from WPDESK, I was able in no time to set up my PDF invoicing system. Great looking invoices. Fully EU-law compatible. And integrating seamlessly with the flexible checkout fields plugin. What an official WooCommerce PDF invoice plugin could not deliver, the Flexible PDF invoices plugin (free version) was able to do. This is a great plugin.

Właśnie jestem po testach i działa jak w opisie 😉 na moje potrzeby jest wystarczająca 🙂 i duży plus darmowa 😀
February 25, 2021
Flexible invoices to wtyczka, którą instaluje na każdym ze sklepów, które tworze - zaraz po zainstalowaniu WooCommerce. Jest bardzo przyjazna i funkcjonalna, szybka w konfiguracji i wygodna w użyciu.
January 30, 2021
I have tested many invoice plugins even with api from services that I have subscription. About invoicing, which I am using and I have tested on free license this addon, issues comprehensive and professional invoices with the most least configuration. No mapping nothing. Option to show 0 on non charged tax which believe me I couldn't find at any of the other at least on free license. Definitely Recommended. Congrats to developers maybe a slight better pricing would give it a boost. But even with current price for invoicing if I decide for premium version is my 1st choice. Thank you
