How much does it cost?

We offer fixed price packages. These start from $35 per week and increase depending on your needs. You choose the level of care you require. You can do as little or as much of the bookwork as you like. We have a package for you. Some customers require a customised package. 

Do you guarantee your work?

Absolutely. All our bookkeepers are governed by the Tax Practitioner Code of Conduct. We also have professional indemnity insurance. You can rest assured that our work is guaranteed. Your satisfaction is our top priority. A clean set of accounts is what we do. 

I like doing the bookkeeping, but I may need someone to check from time to time. Can you do that?

There are some business owners who enjoy doing their own bookkeeping. However, without all the necessary training, it is impossible to be sure you have entered everything correctly. for this reason, we have a BAS check and lodge package. You do the bookkeeping and at the end of the quarter, we check your work, correct any transaction allocations, fix up GST coding allocations and even payroll entries, lodge your BAS and provide you with a report of what we corrected - so you know for next time. 

Can you do bookkeeping at our premises or does it have to be in the cloud?

Our Business Support Packages have been designed around bookkeeping in the cloud using a suite of cloud products to enable the prices to be as low as they can be so that every business owner can afford to stay on top of their BAS lodgements.

If you require onsite bookkeeping, we can discuss this and work out a pricing structure for you. 

What is Receipt Bank?

Receipt Bank stores and converts your paper invoices and receipts into online transactions. It partially codes the paperwork and then attaches a digital copy of the receipt or invoice to the correct transaction in your software program.

You can use a free app on your phone to take a photo of the receipt, press ‘Upload for Processing’ and then destroy the document. Receipt Bank enables us to complete your processing with more efficiency and accuracy. You can effectively sell those filing cabinets and go paperless.

Can my accountant just do the bookkeeping when he/she does the tax?

The short answer is yes. There is no reason your accountant can't do your bookkeeping. Accountants specialize in taxation and wealth management. They do a great job at minimizing your company/personal tax payable.

However, their focus is on tax preparation and advice so in many cases, they will outsource the bookkeeping to someone who does not know your business and is simply trying to get the job done. A lot of the detail is missed and the job is often rushed. They can do BAS lodgements but again, this is not their specialty. Using an accountant to prepare your BAS lodgements and bookkeeping is a bit like getting the design engineer to build your garage.

He may be able to do it. But he would much rather spend his time on design. The design may be perfect, but the end job might be less than perfect. BAS agents are BAS specialists and accountants are tax specialists. 

The perfect combination for any business owner is a great BAS agent to complete the bookkeeping and a great accountant to complement the process with expert advice and tax management. 

Why don't you charge an hourly rate like my previous bookkeeper?

Bookkeeping has become a lot more complex in recent years since the TPB legislated BAS Agents. Much of the time a BAS agent spends is in professional education. With so many software changes, legislative changes and compliance updates, a good BAS agent will ensure they are up to date on everything you need to know to run your business. This time cannot be recouped with hourly rates. 

Old style bookkeepers who simply entered the data and allowed the accountant to maintain compliance are being replaced by modern, educated, informed BAS agents. The service we offer goes way beyond data entry. We offer a complete service and price the 'job' rather than the time spent on your file. 

Hourly rates lock us in to minimising the time we spend on your file to try and save you money. Fixed packages allow us to create efficiencies in your service which we can then spend on improving our service to you, provide you with better add-ons and information.
