Having worked the startup realm – it is very common to use numerous online service (SaaS) that ultimately help with processes and such. Ultimately, every bill you pay will have some sort of online invoicing process. Once you’re fairly set up, you have billings coming from a good dozen or so companies.
The startup I’m with has about 30-40 different services we pay for and it’s a mess collecting invoices at the end of the month. Some companies are great and email the invoice, but my biggest pet peeve is getting a company that sends an email that simply states “Your monthly invoice is ready. Please login to retrieve it”.
To make the accountants life easier – please email the PDFs! Please also don’t summarize the amount and have a more detailed invoice available on the website. Us accountants need all the line items, including taxes.
