New business, lost reciepts

I am new to this as my husband is the driver and we decided to go with Let's Truck instead of an accountant. I do not have all of the fuel receipts nor all other receipts for some of the items that were bought with the business. Not sure what to do about this? I don't want to get into trouble but obviously need to make sure things are kept where they are supposed to be. For the first two months of the year the company we are leased under paid the fuel then took it out of the settlement, but we never received a receipt. There have also been other things the company has taken out as far as paying some other things like the fuel tax and such but we haven't received a copy of the receipt either. Is this alright to not have all the receipts or can I get in major trouble for this? I am also now keeping better track but and far behind on getting going with this because I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing quite yet. Any help/advice would be great thanks!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Does any of this (fuel purchases, deductions) show on the settlement that you receive when you get paid? If so just document it as you would if you had the receipt. Chances are you will never have to produce the ticket unless you get audited and only thing they can do is disallow it.
