Does anyone know for sure that we can throw out our old order forms? These are used order forms from shows? I see no reason if I have everything in PP. But, I was once told to hang onto them for 7YEARS!!!like all tax papers just incase they IRS comes knocking! Really now can I toss 'em? I'm cleaning house (office) and I REALLY want to toss. PLEASE HELP!! thanks!

I keep mine for a couple months after each show just incase a problem arises like the customer questioning her order. I make sure I have gotten all the contact information off of each form though and record it in PP. At my last cluster meeting this questioned arised and all the directors said they toss theirs. My director has done over 800 shows! I can't imagine if she had to save all those order forms :eek:
I don't see why the IRS would need you to save your order forms. You have in your computer and PC has record of it as well. You don't give the IRS information on orders you have taken anyways, just your commission from PC. You get a w2 for that.

Back up your info!

Back up, Back up, Back up!!!

I back up my data onto an external hard drive every day, sometimes more than once if I've entered a lot of info. My computer crashed when I first started and I lost about 22 shows.

P.S. I don't save my paperwork. Way too much space taken!

I keep my order forms until I do my out of the box calls and then I toss. Just be careful when you toss about credit card info and personal info - there are some new laws out there regarding privacy, etc with businesses and the destruction of customer info. If you do not have a shredder you might want to invest in one.
