What do accounting services include?

When you book a local accountant through Airtasker, you can expect the Tasker to track your cash flow, create reports to help you make better business decisions, and analyse your business’ financial status. 

The following is an overview of some services you might expect from your chosen accountant. The inclusions and the processes you’ll go through will depend on your personal or business situation and the services you need. 

Individual tax returns

If you want to get a local personal accountant to help you with your tax returns, try to book 2-3 months before the end of the financial year. This way, the tax accountant can give you pre-tax planning advice such as what to buy and write off before the financial year ends. 

Once you have a tax accountant, put together your identification, a copy of last year’s notice of assessment, all your bank statements, real estate documents, claimable expense receipts, payment summaries, and other relevant files. It will take around 2 hours for the Tasker to put together your tax return - since you can ask them to go to your location, you can tick off the rest of your to-do list while waiting for them to finish. 


When you let a local independent accountant help with your bookkeeping, you can free up time to take care of other aspects of your business - and avoid spending hours trying to retrace every transaction! Also, you’ll get someone who’s on top of your hundreds of receipts, will manage your accounts receivable and accounts payable, and can take charge of your payroll. 

If your growing business needs some extra support, you can use our platform to find trusted office administrators near you.

Budgeting and financial planning

You can easily find local accountants to help out with your budgeting needs, whether you’re self-employed or own a small business. A Tasker can help you create a budget based on your goals, cash flow, and reports from the previous financial year. If you’re using tools like QuickBooks, the accountant can even help you optimise your use of these services. 

The great thing about working with an accountant in addition to your online accounting and bookkeeping tools is that you get to learn more about what you can write off, how to better prepare for the year ahead, and how to maximise your capital.

Need an extra hand with organising receipts throughout the year? You can find a dedicated receipt organiser through Airtasker.

Business accounting

This can include business setup accounting, compliance and audits, and BAS (business activity statements) accounting. When you book a nearby accountant for your new business, they can give advice on the best business model to use, guide you as you fill out any paperwork, and help you set up your accounting software. 

For existing businesses, a Tasker can help you with the necessary financial reports and ensure that you’ve complied with all the required fees and documents that your local authorities require.
