Accounting Ideas

Scan receipt with mobile phone. Sage app can read it using OCR built in software and the amount entered straight into app. Adds some functionality since you have to take the photo of the receipt when uploading it into Sage mobile App anyway.

Sales staff putting in expenses when on the road.

    I've opened this, and only saw this idea later. I agree that this is much needed for business users on the road to just capture their receipts and for those of us to manage the matching to bank transactions. This is the very least function. Currently, I send a list of expenses to the business and then they have to scan every receipt and attach via email back to me. This is utterly an non-effiicient process. Please look into this as it will definitely save time from all sides.

    FR J'aimerais pouvoir scanner mes recus et enregistrer mes dépenses directement dans Sage. Auto entry n'est pas disponible comme produit tiers

    can’t believe this isnt as standard yet, so many competitors have this option to upload receipts

    Great idea and thanks for submitting!

    We are taking a look at this, and would like to understand it further. You mention in the idea that this would be for sales staff putting in expenses when on the road - in the meantime AutoEntry have a great Expense report option which integrates straight into Accounting, offering document capture, approval and publishing. You can connect AutoEntry and take a free trial by going to Settings > Scroll down to Connect > AutoEntry > Go to AutoEntry.

    It would also be great to know how you are processing these today in terms of paying the expenses to your sales staff? And how you are dealing with owner/director expenses paid from the business bank account? If you'd like to comment here, or continue the conversation over email please drop me a line at

    Thank you
