FAQ's

A bookkeeper maintains the records of all money coming in and going out in your business. Bookkeepers check that all the transactions balance to your bank statements, and that all the tax codes are correct. They can assist with payroll, superannuation and provide you with crucial business information such as profit & loss reports, payroll reports and balance sheets. Bookkeepers keep everything in order so that when your accountant needs to prepare your tax at the end of the year everything is in a consistent, easy to read way. A bookkeeper points the data entry to the correct places, like a map in order for an accountant to easily read exactly what’s going on in your business past and future. Accountants prepare the company financial statements, provide income tax advice and assist with understanding your businesses financial situation in order to make informed decisions.
