Are you in need of someone to assist with your accounts?
I am quite prepared to help, but only under the following conditions:
I prefer to work with Xero,
I want to automate your systems and do as little as I can. I don't want to do your data entry. You shouldn't either. Essentially:
Invoices can be preprocessed and attached to your Xero system for your "review and approval".
Payrolls can be automated, and the data fed from other systems.
Employee rostering, if required, should be automated.
Perhaps even the billing and invoicing can be automated.
There are packages out there that are built to interpret the awards, and apply them. This way:
The pays are setup with the correct award rates applied. (You still check and monitor the pays.)
The rosters are automatic, and self controlled.
The employees are paid correctly.
Your effort is minimized.
Best assistance can be achieved via training, automation, and minimizing both your and my involvement!
Make myself redundant regarding any manual bookkeeping tasks.
That does not mean that I do not want to work with you, but it means lets cut costs and time, and do things the smartest way possible! There are some things that still cannot be done effectively by a computer, and this includes:
Proper "auditor style" reconciliations. Ones your accountant will use to finalize your year end.
Provide these reconciliations on the portal, for download when desired.
Optionally I can handle the ATO lodgments for you. They include:
IAS lodgments (the monthly PAYG lodgments.)
BAS lodgments (The quarterly GST lodgments)
STP lodgments (The Single Touch Payroll lodgments)
Did you know new laws enacted by the Australian Tax Office can refuse to allow you a deduction for your payroll expenses, should you not lodge your payrolls on time? It is unclear at this point if this includes the STP lodgments, but it definitely pertains to the IAS lodgments. (Employee costs are usually some of the biggest expenses incurred by most businesses!) This means these expenses become an unclaimable drawing to your business, and that you will also have to pay income tax these expenses, as if you took the money out of the business!
If your business is currently not registered for STP, why not?
For businesses with 20 employees or more, STP must have been implemented by the beginning of this financial year, and for those businesses with less than 20 employees, STP needs to be implemented by the 01 July 2019. Are you ready? Can you afford to loose what is likely your biggest tax expense that you claim each year?
You should be doing the job you are best at (running your business) and I should be doing the job I am best at. (Automation and managing the ATO lodgments, while making sure everything is smooth and correct.)
