Common Questions

Get answers to the questions we hear most often from accountants and tax preparers.

There are many reasons why a business may choose to scan and convert paper documents into digital files. If your business has compliance requirements or regulations for data retention, paper files can be cumbersome and much more expensive to store than their digital counterparts.

After scanning, your documents are carefully indexed and organized by any identifier(s) on the documents of your choosing, allowing you to locate any file almost instantaneously by a simple text search, greatly improving efficiency.

Our scanning service was designed to help accountants convert a wide variety of important business documents into digital formats with ease. Centralize your data by converting and uploading the following document types:

  • Tax Records: Personal and business tax returns, W-2 and 1099 forms, and supporting documents such as receipts and invoices.
  • Financial Statements: Balance sheets, income statements, and cash flow statements that offer a comprehensive view of an individual’s or business’s financial health.
  • Payroll Data: Employee salaries, hourly wages, bonuses, and other compensation details, often linked to Social Security numbers and bank account information for direct deposit.
  • Banking and Investment Records: Account statements, investment portfolios, and transaction histories that are crucial for financial planning and reporting.
  • Audit Trails: Documentation related to any audits performed, which can include sensitive data flagged during the auditing process.
  • Client Data: Personal identification information such as names, addresses, and sometimes even biographical data needed for risk assessment or financial planning.
  • Legal Documents: Contracts, agreements, or court documents that might be pertinent to a business or individual’s tax status or financial obligations.
  • Business Records: Operational data, sales figures, revenue reports, and proprietary financial models or algorithms.
  • Receipts and Invoices: Both digital and physical copies of transactions related to personal or business expenses.
  • Correspondence: Emails, letters, and memos that may contain sensitive or confidential information discussed between accountants and clients or third parties.
  • Business Filings: These are official documents that have been filed with a governmental body and may include articles of incorporation, business licenses, and annual reports. These records often contain proprietary business information.
  • Accounts Payable: These are records of all the money that a business owes to vendors or service providers. They often include sensitive details like bank routing numbers and the terms of business agreements.
  • Audit Worksheets: These are essential documents that auditors use to record data during the auditing process. They often include sensitive financial data and observations about the effectiveness of internal controls.
  • Proxy Statements: Used mainly in the context of public companies, these statements are sent to shareholders to disclose information they need before voting on corporate matters. They often contain executive compensation details and strategic plans.
  • Evidential Documents: These could be anything from court orders to emails that prove or disprove a financial claim or status, and they often contain highly sensitive information.
  • Loan Documents: These include promissory notes, mortgage agreements, and loan approval documents. Such files contain crucial financial figures as well as personally identifiable information.
  • Advisory Letters: Often generated by consulting or advisory departments, these letters give specialized advice on various financial matters. They can contain both company-specific and sensitive client-specific information.
  • Personnel Files: These files contain everything from employee Social Security numbers to performance reviews. The information is highly sensitive and is often protected by both company policy and law.
  • Purchase Orders: These documents authorize the purchase of products or services and may contain sensitive price information, terms and conditions, and vendor details.


Each of these record types often contains sensitive data that requires meticulous handling and storage, with stringent security protocols in place to ensure data protection.
