Are you.. A small business with no regular staff? Overwhelmed by your "to do" list or the top of your desk? In need of office staff but do not have the room? Doing your own books, when you need to be growing your business? If you answered yes call me.
Why hire a bookkeeper (BK) for your bookkeeping?
An independent BK to do the bookkeeping can save time and money for businesses.
Benefits of engaging an independent BK include:
By paying hourly, you only pay for what you use and don't pay PAYG tax, holiday and leave loading, superannuation, Workcover, sick pay and meal breaks.
In quiet times, you're not paying for another staff member that you don't need.
You can claim all expenses involved in engaging an independent BK.
You're not having to pay to train a staff member to do your bookkeeping, and then find that your staff member has moved on before you see any benefit.
Being independent BK, we have a duty to our clients to keep updated with current GST and tax rulings as well as accounting software. Having a BK make your records ?accountant ready?, you save on accountancy fees.
Bookkeeping fees will be less than if you use an accountant to complete these regular tasks.
BKs should be expected to:
Complete bank reconciliation
Work out instalments for PAYG,
Complete the business activity statement (BAS)
They may also be able to:
Offer training in the use of MYOB software,
Write cheques (ready for your signature),
Assist with quotes,
Correct bookkeeping, (most mistakes with the bas and general accounting procedures are made because of the wrong installation of software and the wrong accounting codes used).
The BK should make contact with your accountant to ensure the chart of accounts is setup as the accountant requires. To ensure that software is set up correctly, you require someone who understands the MYOB software you are using as well as accounting procedures and who can work with your accountant.
The more you know about your business, the better informed your decision.
