Transition from employee to contractor

Being your own boss is a dream had by many people and it’s easier than you think to get started. National Bookkeeping offers a licence model which enables you to own 100% of your bookkeeping business and income for a low startup and annual fee.

The extra skills needed to be a contractor are business and marketing skills as well as soft skills for working with people, managing projects and organising your own time – plus you need to send an invoice to be paid!

Beginner level bookkeepers are in high demand

Although many people feel they need to complete a Cert IV in Bookkeeping and Accounting, then become a registered BAS agent to be able to perform bookkeeping work, but that is not the case. You can be a contract bookkeeper performing Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable and Credit Management tasks quickly and cheaply.

Businesses rely on these bookkeeping tasks to manage their cashflow and finances so it is very important and involves working with source documents like quotes, invoices, receipts and purchase orders.

I need a bookkeeper for our business

Accounting is a necessary aspect of every business just to be compliant with the Australian Taxation Office. This means knowing how to treat every transaction and understanding the nuances of the industry that you business operates in.

Here are the most common industries our bookkeepers work in

If you’re looking for a bookkeeper for your business it’s important to define their role or job description. This will outline the tasks they need to perform and better define how much tax and industry knowledge they need.

Here are examples of pay rates for different accounting tasks

It is often smart to hire someone for beginner level tasks to perform most of the accounting tasks performed every day and then get a contract BAS agent for finalising BAS and payroll related work.

See which tasks only a BAS agent is able to perform
