What is the difference between a bookkeeper and an accountant?

Your bookkeeper completes a lot of day-to-day and month-to-month functions of your
business. Your accountant can act as a business advisor and help lead business growth. They also do your tax, which a bookkeeper cannot do.

It is important to note that bookkeepers work in conjunction with your accountant – it is not an either/or situation.

And a bookkeeper charges less than an accountant, so it is more cost-effective for the services they can provide.

What is your onboarding process?

We’ll keep it short and simple. Once you are ready to partner with Complete Bookkeeping Concepts, we will meet (in person, over the phone, or via Zoom), to confirm our services and discuss the documentation needed.

What sort of documents will I need?

Generally speaking, we need three months of documents, and these include things like bank statement and sales reports. Depending on your individual needs, we will go over what documentation you need in our first initial meeting.

In compliance with the ATO, as a registered BAS agent we will also need to physically sight some identifying documents. These will be discussed in our first initial meeting as most will have these with them already.

There is a lot of online bookkeeping software – do I really need to employ someone to do it?

It’s not essential, but it is recommended if you don’t spend your nights and weekends
working on the books.

A bookkeeper offers peace of mind. Software can go a long way to help manage your books, but it doesn’t make sure your bookkeeping is compliant – it only cuts down the time needed to achieve this.

How can hiring a bookkeeper save me money?

As bookkeepers, we focus on one thing only – your bookkeeping! That means we can get the job done efficiently. We can put in processes that help streamline your business and can often find other efficiencies.
