Contractors Are Torn Between Over Or Under Managing Their Bookkeeping

Contractors want to maintain control without making any changes. “Keep doing the same thing but expecting a different result.”  

Throwing the receipts in a shoebox (behind or under the seat in the truck) is the favorite way to deal with paperwork.
