BOOKKEEPING & RECONCILING
Bookkeeping involves the process of recording, analysing and interpreting the financial transactions of a business or individual. The discipline of bookkeeping accounts for a large proportion of the accounting process.
A bookkeeper’s duty is to set up financial statements so that an accountant can easily perform legal and tax management in a timely manner.
A skilled and compliant bookkeeper should be able to produce financial records that give business accurate information about its financial activities. These records are critical to the future success of any business. Not only are these records necessary for the business, they are also required by law. Australian legislation states that businesses must have up to date financial records to ensure that they pay all necessary taxes and levies.
Records must be kept that are accurate and true for a period of at least 5 years from the date that the documents were prepared, obtained or the transaction completed, whichever occurs the latest. Some records, such as payroll, must be kept for a minimum of 7 years.
Data entry is the act of entering information into electronic formats by using word processing or data processing software hosted on a computer and its data entry operators who perform these tasks. In truth, though “data entry” sounds technical, you can get many of these jobs with no previous experience.
PAYROLL & SUPPORT
Payroll tax is a self-assessed, general purpose state and territory tax assessed on wages paid or payable by an employer to its employees, when the total wage bill of an employer (or group of employers) exceeds a threshold amount. The Payroll function is one of the fundamental functions of any organisation. At the basic level, it ensures that all employees receive their wages. In practice, the payroll function extends to a fairly wide range of administrative and labour issues.
ACCOUNTS PAYABLE & RECEIVABLE
We can assist with the reconciliations of supplier statements, coding and data entry of supplier statements, the creation and issuing of invoices, and assisting with a creditors procedure.
POS RETAIL SYSTEMS
A retail point of sale system typically includes a cash register (which in recent times comprises a computer, monitor, cash drawer, receipt printer, customer display and a barcode scanner) and the majority of retail POS systems also include a debit/credit card reader.
EXTERNAL FINANCIAL CONTROLLING ADVICE
Financial statement and other financial information distributed to people outside of a company.
DOES YOUR BUSINESS REQUIRE BOOKKEEPING ASSISTANCE?
It is important your business operates with an optimal stock control system – so you don’t get stung at tax time. Ideally, your business needs to maintain inventory levels against its cost. With correct systems in place, your stock should be a minimal investment in inventory, while still being capable to fulfil customer orders. Balancing these two goals can be difficult. If you have too much stock, you will potentially have an unnecessarily high tax payable, too little stock can turn away potential customers.
There are numerous methods we can tailor to your business to ensure a healthy stock balance. Discuss your options with us today.
