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 in the United Kingdom 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.
There’s no better time to sort your finances out than now. Get a free, no obligation quote, and find your perfect accountant today.

Top Accounting related questions
A good accountant should have enough experience and skills, especially in the service you require (e.g. financial management, taxes). Next, they should have a good completion rate - something you can check through the reviews on Airtasker. Lastly, they should have all the licences, insurance, and police checks needed to work as an accountant in your city, state, or country.
Yes, you can hire virtual accountants through Airtasker. To do this, post a request as you usually would, and indicate that you need someone you can work with virtually. Next, email your documents and pick a time to set up a video call. Since you may need to sign several documents that the Tasker will prepare, you may need to book a courier to pick up files.
This depends on your budget and the services you need. For those working on a budget or outsourcing their bookkeeping for the first time, a self-employed accountant is your best bet. And since Airtasker lets you dictate the budget for a service, you’re more likely to find someone within your range.
First, keep your documents in one place and make sure you have backup copies of the most critical files. Soft copies should have bank-level encryption, something an experienced IT specialist near you can set up. You can also look into setting up a direct connection with Xero (an accounting solution) and your bank. Lastly, make sure that your accountant or any finance-related personnel you hire have the necessary licences and police checks.
If you need help with financial documents, day-to-day bookkeeping, and tax forms, you need an accountant. Some accountants may also offer financial analysis and help you comply with the relevant business regulations in your area. But if you’re looking for someone to verify your financial statements and tax filing and to help you balance your books, you’ll need to hire an auditor.
To start, make sure you have all the credentials and licences needed to work as an accountant in your city, state, or country. Then, sign up as a Tasker on airtasker.com. After signing up, you’ll need to provide some verification, such as your bank details. Finally, it’s just a matter of waiting for accounting-related task posts and putting up your offer!

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.
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 HM Revenue & Customs.
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.

So I need help, I have Xero and hub doc for uploading the receipts but need help with the sorting, data entry, fields/expense type and book keeping.
