allow notes in invoice output
there are some situations where it's useful to add a note to an invoice that's include in the invoice PDF. e.g a message about the reverse charge VAT treatment for EC customers. I would guess there's more exceptions like this where a note would be useful.
it is very helpful to be able to add notes when you create a new invoice via API
You might consider adding a comment-only line item to the invoice. This would get printed on the PDF of the invoice.
If the message is to be added to lots of invoices, you could even consider defining a price list item with a description only. This would save re-typing the comment for each invoice.
A third option is adding a comment onto a docx branding theme template. If all EC customers could be assigned the same branding theme, the comment could be hard-coded onto the docx template.
We’ll certainly consider other options to make life easier for our customers.
Although we invoice in USD, we're required to include in the invoice the exchange rate for our local currency, using an official exchange rate table. This means that this information change everyday.
Having the possibility to add a comment, or even better "custom fields" to be used in the template, is essential.

Hi I also agree and these votes should be added to the other community topic http://xero.uservoice.com/forums/5528-xero-api/suggestions/1680825-history-notes

Is there a particular method for adding a comment-only line item? Or do we simply add a LineItem with a UnitPrice of 0.00 and Quantity of 1?
