How do I add income or receipts to my case?

This article will guide you through how to add and keep track of income and receipts in your case throughout the full estate administration process


šŸ’ You can view income within the estate accounts summaries and output at the click of a button at any stage of the administration process, providing you and your clients with clear, easy to understand updates any time you need
