Accounting and Bookkeeping Services

Whether you want a full suite of accounting services, or you have just one specific requirement, we have a member or team of members who can help you.

Daily Transactions

Daily Transactions

This is the type of work that happens everyday, like invoices, purchases, expenses and payments, and collecting receipts. These tasks are mundane and time-consuming for businesses large and small, yet they are critical to the success of businesses of all sizes.

This type of work is often performed by junior level bookkeepers because there is no requirement to choose tax codes or evaluate the data being entered (that happens at set up) and it means you can find someone to do this work at a relatively low price. Alternatively you can train one of your own staff in how to use the software and systems to do the bookkeeping work.

Credit Management

Credit Management

Whether you have payment terms with your suppliers or give your customers credit, you have credit risk and need to manage the balance between credit and cash. On the purchase side this involves negotiating the best deal you can for delayed payment of good and services. On the customer side it’s about understanding the credit risk and keeping clients in strict payment behaviour within your credit terms and conditions.

Good credit management starts before you engage with a new customer and involves daily and weekly activities to ensure a healthy credit management program.

Setup

Software and System Setup

If you have a startup business, are changing from one software system to another, or you’re transitioning from a manual system to a computerised system, you’ll need to go through the setup process. The accounting and bookkeeping setup stage should involve a senior bookkeeper, BAS agent or accountant because it involves tax and GST codes and how they are used in the daily running of the business.

If you’re using an accounting software system for the first time or transitioning from a different software program your team will need training to be able to perform their daily and weekly tasks.

MYOB, Xero and Quickbooks Online are the most popular accounting programs for small business so the person who sets your systems up will need both bookkeeping knowledge and software knowledge and ideally some experience in your industry.

Payroll Services

Payroll Solution

Payroll can be complicated and it is strictly governed to protect the rights of Australian workers and administer the obligations companies have to the ATO. Payroll management is affected by changes in tax tables each year, superannuation options, holiday and sick pay, long service, entitlements, accruals and more. It takes into account state and federal awards and timesheets and there are very strict requirements for when official documentation is provided to your employees, superannuation companies and the ATO.

Payroll is a very sensitive part of a companies accounting department because you’re dealing with private information about employees, including pay rates. Payroll services can be integrated in a total bookkeeping solution or provided as a separate service.

Training

Software Training

Many businesses starting up and using computerised accounting for the first time, or transitioning from a different software program, need training. A course provides a uniform and consistent way of inducting accounting staff, but it’s also important to be able to speak with someone in applying that knowledge to your current business.

The cost for training on MYOB, Xero and Quickbooks Online is based on long the bookkeeper is required, the skill level of training and the time it takes for the bookkeeper to get to your location. We also factor in how much support time is needed after the training.

A good trainer needs to have a good understanding of accounting, accounting software and experience in the type of business you operate.

BAS Preparation and Lodgement Service

BAS Lodgement Service

This is an important compliance requirement for all companies registered for GST and a high level of skills and qualifications are required to perform this work. As a bookkeeper you must be able to show the Tax Practitioners Board that you have the necessary experience required to approve and sign off the information provided in the BAS.

Some of the preparation work on your accounts can be performed by a low cost bookkeeper or accounts person while the more complex tax components can be performed by a more experienced and qualified Registered BAS Agent.

Accounts Department

Accounts Department

The growing trend of cloud-based services in accounting software, telephone and other services like support systems, messaging and so forth, have enabled businesses to choose their team based on the talent no matter where these people are located. This includes international businesses operating in Australia and which therefore need to manage their Australian accounting obligations.

Even if you are a growing medium-size business you can now outsource your daily accounting functions to the team of your choice using cloud-based technology.

Virtual CFO

Management Accounting and Chief Financial Officer (CFO)

Small businesses and not-for-profit organisations that are growing quickly, or need more experienced financial managers, are often not in a position to hire someone of the right calibre in a full time position. However, they still need a highly competent and experienced financial manager and that is where this service comes in. Some members of our team are experienced corporate executives or owners of small businesses that have grown successfully. If you are interested in these services please request a quote.

Financial Reporting

Financial Reporting

Financial reports are designed to give a clear snapshot of how a business is performing. They are used for compliance and GST liabilities, sales performance, asset management, cashflow management and management reporting for head office business decisions.

Generating the reports can be performed quickly by anyone with knowledge of your accounting software but often it takes a highly qualified staff member, such as a CFO, finance manager or BAS agent to understand them. Some users with data entry duties may not have access to these, but higher level bookkeepers can perform these duties.
