Bookkeeping is a cornerstone of good business, and often one of the first things to be neglected when you start to get busy. It is the single most important activity in successful business. If day-to-day transactions are not recorded, and all documentation not correct, a business can quickly find itself in a downturn.
A bookkeeper is a bit like a GP – there’s one on every corner but great ones are hard to find. Like most professionals, the less experienced and less qualified bookkeeper will usually be cheaper. But judging bookkeepers by price is fraught with danger.
A great bookkeeping service means that all expenses are where they should be. It gives you correct and accurate figures to plan and budget on, to know exactly where your money is going and how your business is performing!
Never ever under estimate the need for clean and organised books.
Because honestly? Accountants would have the hardest time trying to put together a good tax return for you if they weren’t.
Trust us. We’ve been there.
We’ve worked with clients that have used somebody who’s untrained or unqualified, or who have just tried to do it themselves, and it simply just does not work.
You see we can’t get a deduction for you on your return if we don’t see the receipt, if it’s not named and dated correctly or filed in the right spots.
There’s a lot of information we need to maximise your returns, and a lot of it comes from your books.
Wether we take the rains or we work with your in house bookkeeper or payroll manager, after the years of experience we have had, we just know that if you want to be able to get the most deductions you can, and get your return in the best shape possible, that bookkeeping really needs to be included in your package.
To give you a bit of an idea, your package could start off looking a little something like this, before we personalise it with everything you need, and takeaway anything you don’t.
