How long should packing slips be retained?


It depends on how you are using the packing list. If you are using it as a receiving document, then you may want to consider saving it similar to the bill of lading, i.e. 7 years.

If you are merely using it as a reference for comparison to what is documented on a separate receiving report, then you may not need retain it.

We also suggest you consult your tax advisor and let them know how you are using the packing list so they could provide you with their advice for tax purposes.
