One tip that a lot of people don’t expect is to NOT try to make the L&I auditors job easier by explaining or reworking your records. Most business owners are used to trying to make things make sense. If the records they have are difficult to read, then they make a spreadsheet, or otherwise try to make a more clear presentation. This helpful impulse usually ends up being ignored, at best. Or at worst the extra information creates a problem later for the business owner who was only trying to be helpful.
