Thank you, Debbie! Your session, out of all I attended, will have the most impact on my business this year. And my Enrolled Agent thanks you, too! The slides and notes are much appreciated. I’m looking forward to the webinar.

Thanks so much for a great session. It was great to confirm what I was doing well and where there are opportunities to improve. I know you were kicking yourself for running out of time, but your session was one of the most content packed at conference. So thanks so much for putting the thought and care into helping us all do better. Will look forward to hearing when the webinar/recording is ready.
Hit ’em long & straight!

Thanks for the practical information we need to set up our bookkeeping systems. I appreciate the checklists and specifics!

One question: do you have to keep both the itemized bill for a credit card purchase and the signed copy? I know the signed copy includes the tip, but do you need the itemization for tax backup?
OK, one more question: does or how does the system change for doing this paperless or almost paperless?


Debbie Gilster April 18, 2011 at 1:31 am

Monica – you are so welcome! Here are the answers to both of your questions:

1) I am assuming the credit card receipts are for eating out at restaurants. If you are given an itemized receipt to keep, keep it – along with the summary you signed and added the tip amount on. We don’t always get an itemized receipt to keep though. Most important is be sure to write who you were with and the purpose/topic of discussion to substantiate it as a business expense. An auditor “may” ask for the itemized detail if they are focusing on your entertainment expenses in an audit. It really depends if this is an area that seems extremely high.
2) If you use a paperless or semi-paperless approach, create a folder for the current year and save your files there using a clear and consistent file naming convention. In most cases you will want some sub-folders too so the files are a bit more organized. No need to overdo it though if you have clear file names. At year end, be sure to put your current year folder onto a CD (which would be your tax backup) and store it in with your tax return.

Hope this helps! Keep up the FLOW

Debbie, I have always thought of you as my mentor and even after eight years in business, I am still learning from you. Your class at conference was excellent and I am anxiously awaiting the webinar. Thank you for making all of you notes available, too. You are truly one of the best!

Hello Debbie,

I agree with everyone above. This may have been the most helpful seminar that I attended all weekend. I loved your enthusiasm and can’t wait to put it to work!


Sue Ive April 12, 2011 at 10:20 am

Thank you Debbie. You are a wealth of information and so generous to share it with us! Looking forward to the webinar.


Kat Jacoby April 12, 2011 at 9:35 am

Debbie, your workshop was fantastic and on point! I specialize in small business, but I didn’t want to miss an opportunity to hear from *the* small biz guru and you certainly delivered! Thanks for being so generous with your materials. ~ Kat


Claire Flannery April 10, 2011 at 10:07 pm

Debbie, Really enjoyed your presentation at Conference and can’t wait to hear the rest in your webinar. You are a great speaker and I appreciate that you are willing to share your expertise and knowledge with the rest of us. Keeping all business financial files in one drawer makes such sense; I wish I’d thought of it! Spent some time today rearranging my business files and now they make much more sense. Thanks so much!


Debbie Gilster April 10, 2011 at 10:44 pm

Thanks so much for your kind words. It means a lot coming from a financial organizer and daily money manager. I look forward to providing you with even more ideas that make you, and possibly your clients, feel even more financially effective!
Debbie 🙂


L. Danielle Carney April 9, 2011 at 11:39 pm

Debbie Gilster April 10, 2011 at 8:04 am

Thanks so much Danielle! I appreciate your kind remarks. My presentation slides are now available for download. I will have the webinar/video available within the next few weeks and let you know when.
