Top Bookkeeping related questions
A bookkeeper takes on a wide range of financial tasks within a business. This includes bank account and credit card reconciliation, accounts payable and receivable, preparing and submitting business activity statements (BAS), payroll, and superannuation payments. Your bookkeeper helps keep your records in order so they’re ready for your accountant at tax time.
A bookkeeper manages a business’ transactions and record keeping, whereas accounting focuses on preparing financial information for tax purposes and business improvement. You can hire your accountant to do bookkeeping, but they’ll charge a much higher rate.
You might think that trying to do the books yourself will save money, but a bookkeeper will use proper accounting methods to record transactions and get it done in half the time (with 100% accuracy). Your bookkeeper will also minimise your risk by keeping you compliant with reporting and payment obligations like BAS, IAS, superannuation, and payroll.
The most popular accounting software programs used by bookkeepers are Xero, MYOB and Quickbooks. All these systems work in a similar way, so most bookkeepers will easily adapt to your preferred system.
Depending on the size of your business, you might engage a local bookkeeper for help each week, month, quarter, or year. If you’re registered for GST, a bookkeeper who is also a certified BAS agent can prepare and lodge your regular business activity statement with the tax office (usually each quarter).
The cost of bookkeeping is usually between £100 - £120 on Airtasker, but this will depend on your agreement and services you need. Most bookkeepers will charge you an hourly rate for the time spent managing your financial transactions, while others may charge a weekly, monthly, or quarterly retainer fee that pays for ongoing help with specific tasks.

What does a bookkeeping service include?
A qualified, experienced, and knowledgeable bookkeeper can provide valuable advice and support to your business. With accurate and up-to-date financial reports, you can build projections or review historical information that supports business improvement. Your bookkeeper can work with you on-site or remotely, and you’ll always have access to your transactions with the help of cloud computing. Here are some ways your bookkeeper can help:
Record and reconcile transactions
Whether you use cash or accrual accounting, a bookkeeper can reconcile transactions quickly so you’re always aware of your cash flow and finances. Using bank feeds, invoices, and receipts, they’ll use your accounting software like Xero and MYOB to match transactions with the correct accounting codes to ensure accuracy in future reporting.
A bookkeeper with additional formal qualifications and experience can become a certified BAS agent. This allows them to prepare and lodge your BAS (GST) and IAS (Income Tax) with the tax office so you meet your reporting and payment obligations. As a BAS agent, your bookkeeper is bound by a code of conduct and required to undertake an ongoing study to maintain their certification.Accounts payable & receivable
Managing accounts payable and receivable effectively is a key aspect of ensuring a healthy cash flow for your business. When you hire a bookkeeper near you, you’ll have someone on hand to invoice clients and manage debts if they become overdue, while ensuring your suppliers get paid on time.Payroll and superannuation
A bookkeeper is adept at managing payroll and superannuation and will make sure your staff are getting their entitlements. From tax declarations at onboarding, through to payment summaries and early termination payments, your bookkeeper has the knowledge to ensure payments are calculated correctly every time. Payroll and superannuation are subject to constant change - it’s not something everyday business owners can feasibly keep up with. Your bookkeeper will be aware of changes that impact your business and ensure your processes and systems are updated so you continue to meet your obligations..

I'm a "micro-business" currently overwhelmed by book keeping. I'm a jack of all trades - Not book keeping and taxes! 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. It's really small so once it's caught up and corrected for the last few months someone can maintain on a frequency that suits. My accountant is abit busy so is only filing the tax returns and doesn't answer my calls etc. Helpful. So yes anything you can do is great. (proven book keeping or accountancy/tax experience and or qualification essential!). Paid hourly or per task, initially estimated a couple of hours then maybe 2 hours a month. (based on my own skill)
