Paper based filing can require so much space, and so many human resources to maintain and manage them, that for large organisations, they're becoming increasingly impractical.

So how do we get a handle on the situation? By getting informed and taking sensible measures to keep everyone happy, from the VAT man to your Filing Administrator. This paper should show you how.
