Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a bookkeeper?

It is vitally important to keep on top of your day-to-day Bookkeeping. It allows for clear insight into the business and when kept up to date, can be a powerful tool.

 

Why should I outsource Bookkeeping?

You only pay for the hours your accounts are worked on. There is no need to supply office equipment or office space. We always have a backup, so if your allocated bookkeeper has taken some time off, another team member will fill in to keep your accounts up to date and ensure no deadlines are missed.

 

How are they different to accountants?

I always say it’s like a general practitioner vs a specialist. The general practitioner handles the day to day aches and pains, whereas anything more serious is referred to the specialist. Similarly, a bookkeeper handles the day-to-day accounts, assisting you in staying compliant and managing your daily admin needs. We then engage with an accountant for your tax and business advisory matters.

 

What services can you provide?

We provide day-to-day Bookkeeping. This entails reconciling your bank accounts on a regular basis, as well as filing all your receipts and invoices alongside those transactions. We can process payroll on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis if required. Processing of debtors and creditors and preparing batch payment files. The filing of monthly, bi-monthly or 6 monthly GST returns. The preparation of annual accounts which is then submitted through to your preferred accountant. We also provide assistance in the setup and training of Xero and WorkflowMax if required.

 

What do bookkeepers actually do?

We love to crunch numbers and we love to organise your accounts. We love everything you don’t have time for! We turn chaos into bliss.

 

How much does a bookkeeper cost?

We have different pricing systems depending on your needs. Please give us a call to discuss your options.

 

Can you work at my premises?

We are able to visit your premises if this is required, however, we prefer to work remotely and use our systems which are specifically designed to ensure efficiency and accuracy of our work.
