Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a bookkeeper, what’s wrong with DIY bookkeeping?
Whilst being your own DIY bookkeeper may seem a cheaper option, most business owners find their business needs are far more demanding, leaving them very little time to get on top of their book work and therefore they often get penalties for late submissions to the ATO or alternatively find that their invoicing is sent out late which can create cash flow problems.
Where do you do the bookkeeping from, our offices or yours?
We can work either at your offices or from ours.
I am concerned about my financial information?
We are a registered BAS agent and registered with the Taxation Board and are legally required to keep all clients information confidential.
