I know you posted this question a month ago. But the regulations aren't that bad if you set up your invoicing for it. We already had our copy of the invoice set up with a checklist of 99% of the products we use. We would simply check off the ones we used and right down the amount used at each stop so that we could then quickly add it into the computer each week for records. Now that check list is simply printed on the customers copy as well. I have been toying with switching to a carbon copy system that would streamline the process further.
Why do people not respect us as they do other tradesmen? Because every Tom, Dick, and Harry doesn't think he can be a plumber or electrician!
