Boox launches receipt capture functionality for contractor expenses

If you’re tired of having to keep those expense receipts and upload them manually to our app – then your life as a contractor using our service has just got even easier!

We’re delighted to launch new functionality which enables you to use your mobile phone to capture your expense receipts and see them appear automatically in the Boox app.

We’ve partnered with leading online receipt capture application to provide this exciting development for our users.  The overall process is in keeping with our ethos to keep the accounting side of your business simple and effective.

How our receipt capture process works

Simply snap your receipts, send them to Shoeboxed (who check and verify the information on the receipt), and then see the record in our Expenses portal for you to allocate and claim back.

Depending on your level of use, there’s a monthly charge to use this service (this is not a charge we levy, but one from ShoeBoxed to cover their administration) – but the good news is that there is a free option if you upload less than 5 receipts per month.  If you choose to take on one of the paid plans as a larger user (you can snap 50 receipts for just £9.95 per month), then you can claim the cost back as a business expense.

Check out our video tutorial here on how to create your account and get up and running.

To take advantage of this service, all you have to do is to follow this simple process;

1)      Sign in to your account and click on My Boox and Apps.

2)      Click on the Register button and create your account with ShoeBoxed.

3)      Return to the Apps screen once you’ve created your account and click on the button to link your Boox App with your newly created account.

4)      Download the ShoeBoxed iPhone, iPad or Android app and getting snapping those receipts!

Once this is done, you’re then all set up and ready to go!

This is just one development we are looking to launch in 2013.  Keep your eyes peeled in your inbox, on our blog, or via our social media platforms on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook for other updates.
