What is a bookkeeper's role?
Detail-orientated, a bookkeeper tends to be much more involved in the day-to-day financial aspects of a business than other financial service providers. We add value to your business all year round, rather than just at tax time or during a crisis, by providing an external perspective and a detailed, impartial view of where you business is at, what is being done well, and what could be improved.
What’s the difference between a bookkeeper and an accountant?
Your accountant will mainly focus on profit and bottom line, with a view to sorting out your financials at the end of the financial year. They won’t typically take an in-depth look at what’s going on inside your business, and in that way are not quite as invested in the same hands-on way as your bookkeeper.
Why do I need a bookkeeper?
For many people in business, figures and financials aren’t a natural part of their skill set. The processes involved are complex and admin-heavy, and even if you put the hours in, there’s still plenty of margin for error if you’re not an expert in the financial field. A bookkeeper will therefore save you time, and take away the stress associated with ensuring your books remains up-to-date and your financials are reported in such a way that will serve your business well.
I am behind in my BAS and tax; how do I get up to date?
No drama! We can get you up-to-date quickly and with ultimate accuracy. Simply provide all bank statements, receipts and invoices for the relevant dates, and we’ll cast our detailed and expert eyes over them all, methodically working through and putting all data into a format that makes sense. We’ll use the outcomes of this work to prepare the profit loss and balance sheet, which you’ll need to present to your tax agent. We aim to assist companies in the lodgement and preparation of their BAS returns on time, in a way that fulfils their legal obligations.
I'm not on Xero, can I still use your services?
Xero is just one of a number of online accounting packages commonly used by businesses and bookkeepers in Australia. It’s the central portal that captures and stores all crucial financial information, presented in a user-friendly format. It’s all about making your financials easily accessible and easy-to-understand. At Client Needs Bookkeeping we don’t just use Xero. We also use two other comparable packages, Quickbooks and MYOB. In fact, MYOB is our preferred system. We love it so much that we actually offer a discount for clients who use it. We enjoy its streamlined approach, ease-of-use and its ability to speed up every job.

While we know some businesses are still storing their financial information using their own manual systems, to work with Client Needs Bookkeeping you’ll be required to migrate to one of the three packages mentioned. We promise, you won’t regret it. And out team will even be on-hand to walk you through the process and get you up to speed with everything you need to know about your new, crucial business tool!

What are your bookkeeping service rates?
We offer a fixed-rate pricing model, ranging from $110 per month for sole traders, to $195 per month for small businesses, $390 per month for companies with up to ten employees, and $750 per month for larger companies. See our pricing page for further information about what each of these fees includes.

Because of the breadth of our experience, no matter what the circumstances, we are ready to hit the ground running.

We’ll go through all records and documentation to ensure everything is up-to-date and exactly where it needs to be. If you don’t have an online accounting package already up and running, we’ll recommend one for you, and assist in the implementation, training and migration.

Once we’re satisfied the foundations are all in place, we’ll ensure we have everything we need to begin working remotely on whatever aspects of your financial operations you need support with. From this point forward, you can completely let go of the administration-burden that comes with managing your financials. We’ll keep things ticking over in the background, meaning you can feel safe in the knowledge that everything is being managed exactly as it should be.

  • Business Activity Statements (BAS) lodgements – We’ll ensure you meet government requirements and are compliant at every stage.
  • Training – Sometimes, all you need is a little guidance. We can work with you to develop and implement new processes, equipping you with the knowledge and tools to be able to manage certain key aspects of your financial operations in-house, long into the future.
