    Hi Niall.nnThanks for sharing out the link on the blog – appreciated. nnThe article on guest blogging from Krishna is timely – this is something that I’ve been thinking about for a while now. Outside of Bloggertone, I’ve done a couple – but nothing regular. I also need to think about the opposite i.e. getting guest bloggers in!nnCheersnBarney

    Sian – every small business or start up should read this. I see so many businesses who spend a lot of money on different items and don’t collect receipts.

    A lot of great points here and I’ll definitely share this.

    Take care,
    Denise

    Thanks Samantha – I’m so glad you’ve shared it with people and it will hopefully be a help

    Thanks Denise for sharing and hope it helps some people. You won’t believe how many people forget to keep receipts. I personally look at them as money – the business expense and the vat back. Like throwing money away.
