Streamlining Record-Keeping Needed As IRS Becoming More Demanding

Lately, the IRS has been particularly fussy in the matter of business receipts.

Reports are circulating that IRS auditors of small business owners have been demanding detailed receipt records.

To ease this added burden there is a growing trend to use cloud technology to maintain detailed records along with receipts.

Moreover, these available products allow users to assign receipts by category.

One such provider is Concur which offers an integrated travel- and expense-management The company says its clients can manage and eliminate paper from their businesses.
With the introduction of the Receipt Store–which enables individuals to e-mail their receipt images to a central repository and easily assign them to line-item expenses–Concur clients now have more choices for managing receipts and invoice images and eliminating the costs associated with handling all that paper.

Rajeev Singh, president and chief operating officer of Concur says: “We now process over three million images a month, with the total number of images processed to date for our clients now approaching 100 million. These latest innovations help employees to quickly and easily submit expenses and provide their companies with enhanced visibility into the line item details of every expense report.”
