Top 7 tips for finding a great bookkeeper for your small business
Keeping on top of your finances is crucial in small business. But there’s a simple alternative to doing your own bookkeeping – get a professional to do it! It will save you a LOT of time and hassle.
And let’s face it, when you run your own business, time is money. Why spend your time on bookkeeping when you could be using it to focus on your business, or even better, to have some time off to recharge your batteries?
Getting a bookkeeper will also help you to make better business decisions, because they’ll make sure you always have the up-to-date financial information that you need at your fingertips.
Here’s our top 7 tips for finding a good bookkeeper. Make sure that:
they’re prepared to give you a free initial consultation.
they charge an hourly rate, so that you only pay for the services you need.
they’re a member of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers.
they are a registered Business Activity Statement (BAS) agent with the Tax Practitioners Board, so they can ensure all your legal compliance obligations with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).
