Why book an accountant through Airtasker?

Managing finances is a piece of cake… said no one ever! Except, of course, for those who work with a trusted accountant. With Airtasker, you can find an independent accountant for your personal and business needs in minutes. Here’s why booking a Tasker is the way to go:

First, you get someone working independently - this is generally more affordable than those big accounting firms. Great for those who are self-employed or manage a small business! Plus, an independent accountant can respond to your requests quickly, unlike the big accounting companies with multiple clients. Next, you can book an accountant for a particular service only (e.g. tax returns) - more cost-efficient than having someone on your payroll.

Lastly, you get efficiency: booking a Tasker can be done in just a few minutes, getting a local specialist saves on travel time, and the mere fact that you work with an accountant can help you manage other aspects of your business.

Top Accounting related questions

What qualities should I look out for in a good accountant?

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.

Can I work with my accountant virtually?

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

Are accounting services expensive?

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.

How do I protect my financial data?

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.

Should I hire an accountant or auditor?

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.

I’m a freelance accountant. How can I offer my services on Airtasker?

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 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. 

Bookkeeping

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.
