Receipt Bank is one of the few default client applications at my accounting firm, Harshman Phillips & Company. "Default" means that we set up Receipt Bank + Xero for every new client we sign.

Why do we do this? Because Receipt Bank saves us so much time.

Receipt Bank allows our clients to digitally submit receipts and invoices. It then extracts the key data so we can automatically publish transactions into Xero with the original source documents attached.

By eliminating tedious data entry, Receipt Bank saves us time and our clients money.

2. Be more visible to automobile drivers

Wearing "Receipt Bank Orange" could very well save your life.

Proper safety on the road is essential for accountants and CPAs to properly serve their clients. After all, you can't process tax returns if you're in a vegetative state.

RideApart has a great article on 8 Ways to Make Your Motorcycle More Visible. Wearing your Receipt Bank shirt as you ride your Ducati to your firm's office should definitely be #9.

3. Demonstrate your solidarity with the Dutch

The orange Afro is my favorite expression of Dutch pride.

Orange is the color of the Dutch Royal Family A.K.A. the House of Orange-Nassau. So naturally it has come to symbolize pride in the Netherlands, even though there's absolutely no orange in the Dutch flag.

If you can see orange in this flag, consult your local eye care specialist. Unless you're Dutch, in which case everything is normal.

The Dutch are so enthusastic about wearing orange in large groups that the phenomenon has been given a funny-sounding name: Oranjekoorts (Orange fever).

The biggest display of Oranjekoorts occurs on Koninginnedag ("Queen's Day"), which is celebrated on April 30. That's close enough to tax day in America (April 15) that U.S. accountants should probably just wear their orange Receipt Bank t-shirts for the entire month.
