Are you still managing bits of paper and receipts either on your desk or on your car dashboard? Or do you, like some, still have all your receipts in a shoebox?
There are apps available for your smartphone, where all you need to do is photograph the receipt. The bill then gets uploaded, and data such as the supplier’s name, dollar amount, GST amount and the date of the transaction all get sent to your cloud accounting software that you need to convert over to.
