It’s December – already?! – and the end of the year is nigh, so we’re rounding up our most read blog posts of 2017. Think of it as an early Christmas present!

Our aim for the Receipt Bank blog is to cultivate a directory of thoughtful, useful material for accountants and bookkeepers, as well as to keep you all up to date with any exciting news from our end. My name is Isobel, I’m the Content Executive here at Receipt Bank and I joined in September of this year. You may have already seen my name quite a bit on the blog, but hopefully next year you’ll see it even more frequently!

Anyway, without much further ado:
