By using one specific email address for all of your accounting documents, you can streamline the accounting process for your financial professionals and minimize the risk of losing documents if you lose access to an individual email inbox. Here is a recipe to create an inbox for accounting. Bon appetit!

Before we get cooking, here are a few helpful hints:

  • Send an email to vendors from the new address. Let them know that this is where you’d like them to send all finance-related questions in the future.
  • Only share access with people who need it. You and whomever is in charge of your financials are the only ones who should have access to private information about your business’ financials.
  • Forward all accounting emails you get to this inbox. Stay organized and keep yourself from losing documents by storing all financial documents in one inbox.

If you’re ready to cook up your own perfect process for an accounting@ email, let’s get cooking!
