Why You Need a Bookkeeper
To keep all of the records up to date so you can get accurate financial reports, and to assist with legal record keeping requirements.
To help in keeping your end of year accounting bills down; by accurate processing throughout the year, there are fewer adjustments required by the tax agent.
To avoid late penalties by making sure the GST, PAYG tax and superannuation compliance obligations are attended to.
Free up your time so you can work on your business rather than trying to do tasks better done by an expert bookkeeper.
Receive information about patterns, trends and cycles, areas of growth or reduction and potential issues.
Minimise the risk of fraud by having another set of eyes overseeing your accounts and conducting ongoing auditing and assurance.
Having someone on your side that can advise and support you in many aspects of your business – from daily operations and business systems to the big picture of how your business is performing and achieving business goals.
