Once a year I have to invest a complete day to download all the invoices of all the small accounts I handle to be able to complete my taxs.

Is there any way, like a tool or something, to speed up the process of downloading and printing them?

Am I the only person with this problem?

I guess it depends on how many small accounts you have? Do you need the actual invoices to complete the tax forms, or just the total spend per account for 2009. You can get the latter much faster just by using the Reports tab (either per account, or in Client Reports in MCC I think. Its one lump sum/report vs. 12 individual monthly reports.

Downloading the 12 monthly PDF invoices doesn't take THAT long, but if you have 20+ accounts, I can see how it can start to take a little bit of time.

Hire a temp worker or find a hapless work-study student to do it?

Europe, so not even PDF reports but HTML pages that have to be printed as pdf. And yep, it's >20 accounts. So selecting the date range, opening all the windows, typing the file names... that's quite a lot of work.

I hoped there was a better, more automated way.

Sujan, unfortunately not. I requested this feature over a year ago in the AdWords feature moderator. It was voted up but so far, only one feature has ever been implemented (which I assume was already in the pipeline).

Unfortunately, it's a manual job. Not something I would feel comfortable outsourcing.
