Can BAS Agents (Bookkeepers) Do Payroll?
Yes, BAS Agents are qualified to carry out all aspects of payroll to make sure that all of your business's employees are paid the right amount on schedule. Our bookkeeping service can include a full payroll service, including setting your payroll up and maintaining carrying out payroll operations on a weekly or monthly basis - whatever works for your business.
What Services Does A BAS Agent (Bookkeeper) Offer?
BAS Agents (bookkeepers) offer a comprehensive service to business owners looking for help organising and updating their business accounts and financial records. This includes everything from setting up accounting systems, invoicing clients, and creating management reports to budgeting, creating cash flow reports, and business planning. In other words, a BAS Agent (bookkeeper) can help you to monitor your business's financial health and plan for the future, as well as keep your books up to date.
Can Bookkeeping Be Done Remotely?
Yes, if you're struggling to find a BAS Agent (bookkeeper) locally, you can hire them to work remotely. All we need to handle all of your company's accounts is access to your financial data and accounts. If you choose to operate remotely, we can digitise your accounts so that you have access to real-time data relating to your business as well as the option to access your accounts from any device anywhere in the world.
Will Professional Bookkeeping Help My Business?
Yes, there are lots of ways in which hiring a professional BAS Agent (bookkeeper) can help your business to flourish. As professionals, we can quickly and efficiently keep all of your accounts up to date and accurate, which saves you time and money in the long run and frees up your staff to focus on tasks that add genuine value to your business. Because we're professionals, we can ensure that you are fully compliant with all relevant regulations, and also offer you advice and recommendations on structuring your business for optimal efficiency.
Can I Do Bookkeeping Myself?
If your business is new and you want to cut costs by carrying out all of your bookkeeping services yourself, you can learn more about how to bookkeep online. Some of the most popular bookkeeping software programs include Xero Resources and MYOB Resources, and these can help you to get started with bookkeeping for yourself. We understand why many new business owners want to do as much as possible themselves, but in the long run, hiring a professional reduces your chances of filing incorrect statements and increases your business efficiency.
What's The Difference Between An Accountant And A BAS Agent / Bookkeeper?
Accounting and bookkeeping are not exactly the same. While accountants interpret and analyse financial data, bookkeepers are primarily responsible for recording it. You would hire an accountant to analyse your company's financial records and make recommendations on business growth, cash flow strategies, and tax efficiency, while you might hire a bookkeeper to manage your daily accounts, record financial information, and prepare documents that ensure your business is compliant with local laws. Accountants and bookkeepers offer services that complement each other, which is why many business owners choose to hire both.
