Template for Numbers freelance accounting sheet

Update: Check out the updated version of this sheet for 2017, including expense tracking.

Who knew you folks were so interested in spreadsheets? After my post last week detailing my freelance accounting sheet, I was inundated with requests for the template. Far be it from me to deny you fine people, so here it is, in all its glory. (Click the image to download.)

Freelance Spreadsheet

I have, of course, removed all of my pertinent information from the file, but to give you a better idea of how things work, I’ve filled it in with a variety of placeholder information. All of which can, of course, be removed and filled with your own details.

You’re free to use this, tweak it to your tastes, and redistribute it, although it’d be great if you acknowledge the source. If you happen to make any changes and would like to share them, feel free to shoot me an email (or hit me up on Twitter) and let me know.
