In English

MLInvoice is a free web-based invoicing system primarily for Finnish companies. It includes support for creating and emailing PDFs and Finvoice electronic invoices. The code is written and commented in English. The user interface is available in both Finnish and English, and invoices can also be created in both languages independently of the UI language. Different locale settings can be defined in the language files. It is also possible to add new translations without having to touch the code.

Main Features:

  • Client Registry
  • Product Registry
  • PDF Invoices
  • Invoice archiving
  • Reporting
  • Email sending
  • Finvoice support

See the MLInvoice home page at for more information, installation instructions and the change log.

N.B. If you install MLInvoice from git (not using one of the releases), be sure to run "composer install" after downloading or cloning the repository to install external dependencies. This is also the case for the release branch in GitHub. Visit if you don't already have composer installed.

Release packages at include the dependencies.

Running with Docker

Running MLInvoice in a Docker container is now also supported. MLInvoice is available at Docker Hub:

For development purposes, Docker and Docker-compose are required. When they are available, it's enough to download MLInvoice, extract it into a directory, enter the directory in a terminal and execute the command docker-compose up. When the containers have been created and have started, MLInvoice will be available at http://localhost:8000/. Note that the database is created in the db_data subdirectory, so make sure not to delete it unless you want to start from scratch.

Useful docker commands:

docker-compose up - Start the containers in foreground (Ctrl-C to stop)

docker-compose up -d - Start the containers in background (use docker-compose stop to stop them)

docker-compose up --build - Start the containers after rebuilding them

docker-compose down - Stop the containers

docker run -it mlinvoice_mlinvoice /bin/bash - Open a terminal inside the container

Running with Vagrant

There is a separate MLInvoice-Vagrant project that allows running MLInvoice under Vagrant. See for more information.
