Bookkeeping & Payroll Services
After we’ve set up your Xero datafile or undertaken a health check and brought your accounts up to speed, we offer the following bookkeeping packages.
We understand though that not all businesses are the same so we also offer a customised service that’s fully tailored to meet your business needs, just reach out and we’ll have a chat.
- DIY bookkeeping
You do your own day to day bookkeeping but we keep an eye on it. We review your Xero file on a monthly basis, bring any discrepancies to your attention and explain how and why they need fixing. When it comes time to lodge your BAS, we’ll ensure everything has been processed correctly and that this reconciles with that. We’ll also process any tricky or complex transactions, for example, premium funded insurance, new motor vehicle purchase and financing, new loans etc. And if you have employees, we’ll also onboard them, review your payroll, reconcile your payroll and finalise your Single Touch Payroll at the end of the financial year.

If you’re a small business owner, you know that managing your accounts is crucial.
But what happens when your books are in disarray and you’re drowning in financial chaos? Or perhaps you find yourself behind on your lodgements?
That’s where we come into play; rescue jobs can be a lifeline for your business. We specialise in and love cleaning up financial messes and restoring order to your books.
- How do I know if my business needs a bookkeeping rescue?
Signs that your business may need a rescue job include inaccurate financial reports, unexplained discrepancies, overdue reconciliations, overdue lodgements, or challenges in understanding your financial position. If you’re facing any of these issues, a rescue job can help.
- What types of problems can a bookkeeping rescue job solve?
A bookkeeping rescue job can address a range of issues, including unbalanced accounts, incomplete records, misclassified transactions, overdue reconciliations, and other challenges that may be impacting the accuracy of your financial data.
- Will my financial data be secure during the rescue process?
Absolutely. We prioritise the security and confidentiality of your financial data. We take measures to ensure the safe handling of information and maintain the highest standards of data privacy.
- What’s the process?
- The chaos before the calm: picture this – receipts scattered everywhere, missing invoices, accounts that haven’t been reconciled in months, and you have a general feeling of financial overwhelm. It’s a scenario that can keep any business owner up at night. But don’t stress, there’s a way out.
- Why does chaos happen: bookkeeping chaos can strike for various reasons. Perhaps you started your business with the best intentions but fell behind as things got busy. Maybe you tried to handle your books yourself but realised it’s not your strong suit. Or, worst of all, you had an inexperienced bookkeeper who left things in a state of disarray.
- The rescue: this is where we step in!
What to expect:
- Assessment: we’ll perform a datafile health check to assess the extent of the rescue and provide a report and quote to bring up to date. Once you OK this we can move forward.
- Organisation: we’ll organise your financial data, ensuring that everything is in the right place. This includes categorising expenses, reconciling accounts, and finding missing transactions.
- Clean-Up: any errors or discrepancies will be corrected, and your financial statements will be brought up to date.
- Reconciliation: your accounts will be reconciled to ensure that they accurately reflect your business’s financial position.
- Guidance: beyond cleaning up the mess, we’ll provide guidance on improving your financial processes to prevent chaos in the future.
- The aftermath – confidence and clarity: once the rescue job is complete, you’ll experience a sense of relief and clarity. Your financial records will be accurate and up-to-date which means you can make informed decisions about your business. No more sleepless nights worrying about the state of your finances or lodgements, all will be under control.
- Preventing future chaos: to prevent a return to financial chaos, consider our ongoing bookkeeping services. Regular maintenance ensures that your books stay in order, your numbers are accurately categorised, GST is correct, lodgements are up to date, and you have a clear picture of your financial health at all times.
