According to current regulations, companies are obligated to deliver documentation for entering within three days, and the bookkeeping has additional three days to enter such documentation. However, in practice, companies submit documentation on a monthly or weekly level. Whether the bookkeeper will pick the documentation at client's premises or vice-versa is agreed in the bookkeeping services contract.
Original documentation is the base for entering. Before you deliver it to the bookkeeper, it is advisable to copy all documentation and form your own archive. Especially, in accordance with the Law on Accounting and Audit, Article 9, bookkeeping document may be in electronic form, which some of the bookkeeping agencies started applying lately.
