If you’re still doing your invoices the old-fashioned way, that is, you print them out and mail them to your customer or supplier, think again.

Electronic invoicing can save a lot of time and money plus it does away with all the disadvantages of the traditional invoicing process.

What are those disadvantages and how can electronic invoicing help you there?

One major advantage of electronic invoicing is that it does away with all the delays that will usually come about from mailing your invoices via postal mail. You will be able to send invoices of and Internet by using electronic invoices, their will not be any delays, no lost mail and last but not least no additional expenses for stamps.

Doing your entire invoicing electronically can likewise result in significant time savings and you won’t have to transfer any invoices from paper to your computer system. Not only will this also save your business a lot of time it can also help you keep mistakes at a minimum. And the advantage that electronic invoices can be organised a lot better as compared to having to deal with piles of paper work.

How does electronic invoicing work?

It may sound complicated at first but believe me it is not. You can continue to create your invoices as usual. You create a PDF invoice but rather than printing it and mailing it you will send it to a third-party service over the Internet. The service then converts the invoice for you and sends it away to its destination. The good thing about it is that those electronic invoice provider is charge only very little for their services which makes electronic invoicing attractive for smaller businesses.

If you have not looked into electronic invoicing yet I can highly recommend that you do so.

 

Interview with Ahmed and Justin Zayat, Owners of American Pharoah

American_Pharoah-2
American Pharoah has now beaten Golden Horn for the title of world’s best horse.

American Pharoah one is now the first horse in almost 40 years to win the US triple Crown and subsequently tack on the Breeders Cup Classic. With that, American Pharaoh has topped the Longines World’s Best Rachorse rankings, sitting now at 134, beating Golden Horn by 4 lbs.

American Pharoah’s history is certainly impressive. There was only one defeat for the successful horse, last year at the Travers Stakes at Saratoga.

The new award for American Pharoah comes just three days after he got all the required votes to win the US Horse of the Year award.

His trainer, Bob Baffert said “I’ve had a lot of talented horses but he just kept bringing it. He was that type of horse.”

Now, American Pharoah is retired at Ashford Stud in Kentucky with his fee set at US$200,000

If one thing is for sure, “American Pharoah is a horse of a lifetime” as  Ahmed Zayat stated. This is probably the most fitting description for one of the most successful racehorses in recent history.

Businesses Urged To Train New Staff

This week is business fire safety week in Berkshire.

The Business Fire Safety Week is an initiative by the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS). It runs from Monday, September 7 to Sunday, September 13

One reason for Berkshire’s Business Fire Safety Week held in September is that it’s now the time were many businesses in the area take on seasonal staff in preparation of the upcoming holidays.

Many of those often temporary employees don’t have the same level of fire safety awareness as the other employees.

This is a great opportunity for businesses in Berkshire along with their staff to learn about fire safety.

There had been 5561 fires in commercial and retail buildings in the last two years in the United Kingdom. More than 2000 of those fires had been in industrial premises and 1898 fires in house and educational premises.

What’s worth noting is that the cost due to fire damages in the United Kingdom is increasing even with the number of fires itself decreasing.

The head of prevention protection at the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service said to the press that it as more important than ever today that businesses go over the fire risk assessment, in particular in the busy periods of the year. Fatalities, injuries and significant financial losses could be prevented.

“RBFRS is supporting Business Fire Safety Week in order to encourage business owners to be extra vigilant and make sure that all fire precautions are taken to ensure a safe lead up to the seasonal period.”, he added.

You can learn more about the business Fire safety week at www.rbfrs.co.uk.  If a commercial kitchen is part of your business operations you can also see Ansul fire suppression system for more information.

London’s river Thames will come to life at this year’s Totally Thames festival!

The art festival in the city will go on all throughout the month of September.

One of the festival highlights this year is the The Rising Tide underwater art exhibition by world renowned sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor.

What makes this exhibition stand out is that the sculptures are concealed and revealed by the daily ebb and flow of the tide. At low waters, the river is revealing four horses and riders.

The sculptures intend to highlight the role of the Thames as the lifeblood of the British capital.

Along with many art exhibitions and galleries, The Totally Thames Festival also features music, boat rides and plenty of opportunities to sample great food and drink along the river.

Check out the festival’s official website at http://totallythames.org/
