Integrating receipt scanner with Sage 50, Canadian edition
December 28, 2013 9:49 PM Subscribe
My husband and I have a small consulting business. I would like to scan all our receipts and then download them into Sage 50 so as to save time when doing our monthly accounting. Do you have any experience doing this? What hardware/software did you use? Did you have to do anything special to be compliant with the CRA?

I would like to scan all our receipts from tiny thermal-printed receipts where the print disappears after two months, to POS receipts as long as my arm (and the print also disappears after two months), to letter-sized printed paper. I would like the scans to integrate into Sage 50 software so that the date, vendor, cost, and GST are automagically entered into our general ledger, or at least some of that information is entered, cutting down the amount of time we need to spend.
It seems that Fujitsu SnapScan does a good job on the scanning end and uses PaperPort software, but I don't know about the integration with Sage 50. NeatScan supposedly works, but I read reviews that you have to continually buy add-ons.
Are you a Canadian small-business owner who can tell me how you set up your digital recod keeping?
