Why book an accountant through Airtasker?

Nothing is certain but death and taxes, and thankfully you’ll only have to concern yourself with one of those two certainties for most of your life. But why concern yourself with taxes at all?

Accounting is one of those rare services that can actually save you cash if you choose to utilise it. You spend money to make money. A good accountant can highlight mistakes and inefficiencies that might be costing you money, and offer ways in which you could save more money. Not only that, you’ll also save yourself an inordinate amount of time when the tax year ends, claiming the maximum amount possible to either pump up your tax refund or minimise your tax debt.

All you need to do find a quality accountant. And luckily they may only be a couple of clicks away! With a wealth of expert accountants now at your fingertips, hiring the perfect one has never been easier. Simply describe the taxes services that you might require, suggest a fair rate, and wait for the offers to roll in.

Top Accounting related questions

What does an accountant do?

Your accountant might specialise in one area, or they might offer a range of services, like personal tax, financial planning, business structures, BAS accounting, bookkeeping, budgeting, and reporting. Accounts usually offer a mixture of advice and implementation to help you get on top of the numbers in your business or personal finances.

How do I find a good accountant or tax accountant?

The best way to find a good accountant near you is to find candidates whose experience and skills match what you need. Then check their reviews to make sure they have a history of delivering on time and providing a great service.

How can I get a tax return near me?

Finding a local tax accountant can sometimes be tricky, depending on where you live. Our platform lists accountants from all over Australia, so if you post a task, it’s likely a local accountant will reach out. But it could also be worth considering a virtual or remote accountant so you’re not limited to your local area.

What do I need to bring to my tax appointment?

If it has anything to do with your income or expenses, it’s a good idea to bring it to your appointment. This includes ID, last year’s notice of assessment, bank statements, property/investment info, your expense receipts, and payment summaries.

How much does it cost to get an accountant to do your tax return or small business accounting?

For a simple tax return or straightforward BAS submission, it may cost as little as $50. For more time consuming or specialised services such as compliance, auditing, or setup, you can expect to pay closer to $500+.

How do I find a self-employed accountant?

Finding a self-employed, independent accountant often means you’ll get better value for money because they have fewer overheads and can charge less. The best place to find your accountant is here on Airtasker, with access to hundreds of accountants near you.

What's included when you hire an accountant

The inclusions and process you’ll go through with your new accountant will depend on your situation and the type of accounting services you need. 

Individual tax returns

Everybody should have a reliable tax accountant to them submit their personal tax each year. It’s usually best to contact your tax agent early on in the year - ideally 2-3 months before EOFY. Not just to make sure they can fit you in, but also to get pre-tax planning advice on what you might be able to buy and write off before the year is up. 


Once you’ve found a suitable tax agent near you to do your tax return, book them in! This time of year things get really busy, so don’t leave it too late. Bring to your appointment your identification, a copy of last year’s notice of assessment, bank statements, real estate info, claimable expense receipts, payment summaries, and anything else that might be relevant. Usually, your accountant will need around 1-2 hours to prepare your tax return and may do it while you’re there during the appointment, or finish it off (with your approval) later on.

Budgeting and financial planning

Your accountant can help you create a budget or in some cases, even plan your finances. You can set up an appointment to talk about your finances, goals, income, and expenses. Then your accountant can use their tools (and years of experience) to advise you on the best steps forward. The benefit of engaging an accountant for budgeting is that they can look at your finances through the lens of what you can write off, the tax you owe, and what you might get back.

Business setup accounting

One of the first things you should do if you’re setting up a business is to engage an experienced accountant. They’ll advise you on the best business structures based on the type of business and projected income level from financial modelling. And they’ll help you feel more confident you’ve ticked the right boxes as you fill out any paperwork. Plus, your accountant can get you set up with MYOB, Xero, or another type of accounting software. 

Compliance and audits

Staying compliant is essential for businesses to avoid fines and minimise risk. But if you’re not familiar with the rules, it's easy to miss a detail or take the wrong step. Your accountant can help you with the financial reports you need or help you get your ducks in a row for an audit. During your appointment, you’ll answer a lot of different questions about the type of work you do, how you record your data, and more. Your accountant will go through a checklist to make sure you’ve covered off everything you need to operate in compliance with local and federal regulations.

BAS accounting

If you’re registered for, you’ll need to submit regular business activity statements (BAS). For most businesses, it makes sense to engage a registered BAS accountant to manage and submit your BAS. BAS agents get extra time, so if you’re in a rush to submit your BAS, you can breathe a sigh of relief when you engage a professional to take care of it. To do your BAS, your accountant will need access to your bookkeeping and accounting software to track the GST you’ve paid and collected over a 3-month period. They’ll calculate the amount you owe then submit this to the ATO.

Bookkeeping

Many accountants also offer bookkeeping services or can help with your regular payroll. If you’re a small business or contractor, hiring a bookkeeper makes sense because it frees you up to serve more customers or just get back some family time. Hiring a bookkeeper means you can finally hand your shoebox of receipts or hundreds of receipt emails over someone who will know what to do with it. 


Because the inclusions vary so much between different accounting services, it’s always a good idea to check with your accountant before you start working together. Get the inclusions in writing, and if you need something specific to your situation, you can always let them know when you post your task here on Airtasker.

Kingston QLD 4114, Australia

21st Jul 2019

I require someone who has extensive experience in book keeping, payroll and general small business office/tax paperwork/office duties. Would like someone to show me the basics too.. though after I am shown, does not mean your out of a job.. I require these services asap, at the start to fix things up the admin/bookkeeper/payroll person to be here for a min of 10 hours, then ongoing for a min of 4 hours per week. We use ServiceM8 and Xero, so please atleast experienced in Xero at a min. Our office is located at our family home in Kingston, QLD and i expect for this person to come to our office and complete all tasks/duties required at our office only. We have a few small businesses, our payrol/Bookkeeper who manages all of this for us is located in another state who we have known and used for years but she has decided she will be having a career change in the coming months. We have purchased another business, employing only 5 casuals, (though this is about to increase) and she is unable to help us with this.. so eventually for the right applicant will be a full time position pending it all works out. Would like someone ASAP TODAY OR TOMORROW for 4 hours. When applying please state your knowledge/experience/certificates in this area and your availability.

Thanks very much Sam, I highly recommend you to any small business owner. You have rescued my sinking ship! You have been able to pick up the pieces, correct our book keeping/accounting mistakes and arrange our payroll, this has just been a sigh of relief for our family business. Being able to pick up from where another person has left off so quickly is a hard skill to come by. Amazing on how flexible you are coming by at 6.30am to help us is just brillant. I really appreciate it! I look forward to working with you further and wish you all the best!
