Frequently Asked Questions



Why do I need bookkeeping?

Bookkeeping doesn’t come naturally to many small business owners, it can get very challenging, particularly in the face of ongoing legislative changes. Having good bookkeeping will ensure that you have efficient accounting systems and that your record keeping is up to date. This saves time and helps you focus on what you do best while growing your business.

What should I look for when hiring a bookkeeper?

Most business owners do not have the knowledge, time or ability to effectively perform bookkeeping duties. The most important thing in any business is to ensure you hire a professional and experienced bookkeeper that you can trust. The requirements for BAS agent status has made a huge difference at weeding out a lot of the unqualified bookkeepers. Be aware of opting for price over quality when engaging people to look after the heart and soul of your business. If you hire unqualified and inexperienced people you will end up paying a higher fee for someone else to come in and fix the mistakes left behind. Keep in mind that this service is also tax deductible.

Can’t my accountant or data entry person do my bookkeeping for me?

Some accountants do offer bookkeeping services, but most prefer to focus on the higher end processes such as legal and tax management. They also charge considerably more than a bookkeeper. Some data entry people are able to perform, but they are much more limited in what they are qualified to do.
