Expense Receipts and Your Bookkeeper

Expense Receipts and Your Bookkeeper

As a business owner, you have a lot of receipts for your expenses every month, and your bookkeeper can help you organize and enter all of those business-related receipts so that you can potentially save hundreds or thousands of dollars annually in tax liabilities.

Some of the miscellaneous expenses that could slip through the cracks include:

  1.  Shipping and postage charges paid out of a petty cash account.
  2. Online advertising costs such as domain name registrations, pay-per-click ad campaigns, and SEO submissions.
  3. Client gifts: the limit in the US is $25/client, but those add up.
  4. In-kind donations: you should enter a receipt for those transactions of time or materials.
  5. Meals related to business meetings: again, there is a limit set by your taxing authority, but your bookkeeper can help you keep all those receipts organized and entered into the proper line item in your accounting program.

As always, check with your tax attorney and accountant for details on how business-related expenses impact your quarterly and annual tax filings, but it is important for your bookkeeper to have access to all of your receipts and help you keep tabs on your large and small expenses.

When you and your bookkeeper work with a comprehensive digital document management system such as LedgerDocs, managing all of your receipts and expenses is much easier and much more efficient.
