Our Services include but are not limited to
Bookkeeping is an essential part of any organisation and although bookkeeping is a very tedious / labour intensive process, there are measures we can put in place in order to nullify this. By using a program such as Xero, labour costs to prepare the books are drastically reduced (recommended for organisations with a large volume of transactions), however organisations with a low number of transactions may not find the extra costs of running such a program justified.
By having an in house book-keeper our firm allows the following advantages:
- Information / communication happens directly between the accountant and bookkeeper, without the need for the client to act as an intermediary
- Books are prepared exactly as specified by the accountant, saving on accounting fees and improving quality / accuracy.
- Quality control measures used by Accountancy Matters can be undertaken by both the accountant and bookkeeper.
- Our clientele are able to deal with a single point of contact (their accountant) making it much easier / convenient for our clientele.
Our bookkeeping services are available from $55 / hour.
Taxation / BAS / Accounting
Whilst tax returns, BAS and preparation of financial statements are all legal compliance issues, they should be thought of as more than just something that has to be done. They should be looked at as an opportunity to save the business money and analyse any inefficiencies inherent within the business. Whether this be through eliminating bottlenecks, repricing products or evaluating current entity structures.
As opposed to other firms which use a firm wide tax license (allowing unlicensed acountants to prepare compliance work), all accountants at Accountancy Matters are tax agents within their own right (in addition to the firms license), ensuring accountancy and advice of the highest standard.
