We highly recommend using cloud accounting software for bookkeeping and payroll services. By utilising this platform, you can ensure real-time collaboration with clients, automatic data backups, and easy access to financial information from any device with an internet connection. It's important to note that bookkeeping services fees in Australia can vary, so it's crucial to research and compare different bookkeepers and their hourly rates. Additionally, it's important for small businesses to keep accurate records in accordance with ATO guidelines to avoid any issues with record keeping. Many cloud accounting software programs also offer a variety of features such as invoicing, expense tracking, and tax preparation tools, making them a comprehensive and convenient solution for managing all aspects of a business's finances. If you're located on the Gold Coast, we can act as your local bookkeeper to assist with these services.

Frequently Asked Questions About Bookkeeping
What is bookkeeping and why is it important?
Bookkeeping is the process of recording and organizing a business's financial transactions. It helps ensure that a business's financial records are accurate and up-to-date, which is crucial for making informed financial decisions, preparing tax returns, and complying with legal requirements.
What should I consider when choosing a bookkeeper?
When choosing a bookkeeper, it's important to consider their qualifications, experience, and references, as well as their availability and pricing. It may also be helpful to choose a bookkeeper who is familiar with the specific needs and financial software used by your business.
Can I do my own bookkeeping or do I need to hire a professional?
Small business owners can often handle their own bookkeeping if they have the time and knowledge to do so. However, if a business is growing or if the owner does not have the necessary skills or time to handle bookkeeping, it may be worth hiring a professional bookkeeper.
How often should bookkeeping be done?
The frequency of bookkeeping tasks will depend on the size and complexity of the business, as well as the preferences of the business owner. Some businesses may choose to record transactions and reconcile accounts on a daily basis, while others may do so on a weekly or monthly basis.
What tasks are typically included in bookkeeping?
Bookkeeping tasks may include recording financial transactions, reconciling bank statements, maintaining a general ledger, preparing financial statements, and generating reports.
Can bookkeeping be done electronically or do I need to use paper records?
Bookkeeping can be done electronically using software such as spreadsheets or specialised bookkeeping software. Many businesses find that electronic bookkeeping is more efficient and allows for easier organisation and access to financial records. However, it's important to note that some legal requirements may still necessitate the use of physical records.
