Can’t I just get an Administration person to do the bookkeeping for my small business because they will be cheaper? Why do I need a Bookkeeper who is a registered BAS Agent?

The Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) states that activities such as setting up client’s accounting software for their business needs, working out default GST codes, deciding on the codes to apply to tax invoices or supplier bills, payroll services including superannuation are considered BAS Services. If BAS Services are being provided and being paid for either by fee or reward then the person completing the work must be a registered BAS Agent. This rule does not apply for an employee or owner that prepares their own BAS Returns. There may be fines applicable for anyone who performs BAS Services and is not registered.

How often will you update my financials records and provide reports?

We work with clients to ensure bookkeeping is done on a regular basis, whether this is monthly, quarterly or annually. This will depend on the ATO compliance requirements and also the size of your business or investment property portfolio. For small businesses, we provide Management Reports so you understand the business’s financial health. For property investors, we provide a Property Taxation Report. We will also go through the reports with you so you have a better understanding.

Do you use offshore services?

No, we believe in using Australian employees because it provides jobs to Australians and we are better educating Australians in bookkeeping.
