Keeping up with receipts for business
expenses can be difficult. The thermal printers which are often used at many retailers can make receipts
easily smudge and barely readable so it is best to enter them in your
bookkeeping software or scan them right away.
The ones you usually need to keep are receipts for
cash purchases and for any purchases that you will get reimburse by
either a client or your employer.
Other purchases paid for via either a credit or debit card you may not need to
be retained as the charges will also show on your monthly statement.
Two online companies can help you keep receipts organized.
Neat Receipts sells a scanner and software, and all receipts can be uploaded into Quickbooks.
Shoeboxed is like a NetFlix for receipts. You send them your receipts and they scan them in for you and send you a file.
