You will find countless advantages in engaging the services of a qualified bookkeeper such as:
Many small and medium business owners start their own business with the view that they can have the lifestyle and freedom they plan. Often, they end up with exactly the opposite. This is often because they spend blood, sweat and tears working in and on their business. When they are not doing this, they are catching up with paperwork, paying bills, working out what GST they owe and many other compliance issues that go with owing a business. With the help of a great bookkeeper, you can not only save countless hours on all the paperwork but you will have the information and support to make strategic business decisions to help grow your business and work towards the lifestyle you plan. Most importantly, you will have peace of mind knowing that this side of the business is taken care of.
Mistakes can go unnoticed such as double payment of creditors, incorrect GST coding, miscalculation of wages and superannuation, outstanding debtors and many many more. Errors can occur, potentially causing you more money in taxes and incorrectly claiming or paying GST. Great bookkeepers are crucial to running a successful business. They have been trained to keep accurate records and correctly record expenses, assets, liabilities and your income, providing you with the financial information you need to help make better decisions and ultimately improve the growth of your business.
Bookkeepers providing a BAS Service are now regulated by the Australian Taxation Office. This means that the Bookkeeper/BAS Agent has satisfied certain education requirements as well as ongoing professional development. A BAS Agent must follow strict regulations that ensure they act in a professional manner. When you hire a bookkeeper, it is in the best interest of the business that you hire a registered BAS Agent, just as you would hire a plumber or electrician that was licensed. All bookkeepers at Indigo Business Solutions are registered BAS Agents and are continually updating their skills.
Most people don't find bookkeeping or accounting interesting. Despite this, they spend endless hours toiling over their paperwork and often still are no better off at the end from when they started. At Indigo Business Solutions, we actually love sorting through the chaos and we are committed to providing the information you need.
