BAS less than 10 Days AwayFor many small business owners, and especially for their bookkeepers, July is always a busy time of year around Ormeau, Yatala, Coomera, Eagleby and Beenleigh.

With end of financial year reporting, together with reporting of the 01 April to 30 June quarter BAS due 28 July, businesses that are behind in their paperwork can struggle under extra pressure that they really do not need – contact our Ormeau, Yatala, Coomera, Eagleby and Beenleigh bookkeeping service today for help with your BAS

Cash flow has certainly tightened up in the economy. As bookkeepers, we’ve seen that invoice payments are being dragged out longer and longer, as suppliers wait to be paid by customers, and service providers wait to be paid by their clients.

Some small business owners use their GST money as cash-flow for their business, forgetting that these GST funds are monies collected by the business on behalf of the federal government – then they seem shocked that they have no cash to pay what’s owing on their BAS lodgement

The phone’s been ringing as desperate business owners in a panic wanting our Ormeau, Yatala, Coomera, Eagleby and Beenleigh bookkeeping service to help with their MYOB and Quickbooks files. In most cases, they can simply email us the files and we’ll have a look at their reporting and can generally work out where the problems are within a short time

Bookkeeping For End of Financial Year

Bookkeeping – End of Financial YearBefore you realise, Easter will be upon us, then the end of the financial year

A client asked us today whether he should make the final balloon payment on his earthmoving equipment, even though he still has 12 more months to pay it off

We’re not registered tax agents and can’t advise whether he’s better paying the lump sum before the end of this financial year, or whether he should carry the payments over into next year.

If your bookwork’s not upto date, how do you make an informed decision about your tax liabilities?

If you don’t have your bookwork upto date, or if bookkeeping is the last thing on your mind right now, then how can you make an informed decision about your tax liabilities for the financial year ending 30 June 2009?

How do you know if you should make a lump sum payment on your vehicle lease this year? If you ask your accountant, you’ll most likely be told that without seeing any upto date figures for this financial year, your accountant cannot give you an informed answer

To prepare for the end of the financial year is not as difficult or as daunting as the task may appear. In fact, the ATO offer you encouragement to get your financials upto date with the quarterly BAS requirements.

Look no further, stress no more, simply contact us, as we provide an outsourced bookkeeping service. Our mobile bookkeepers can come to your premises, work on your computer, or pick up the paperwork and take it away to return with neatly filed and documented set of accounts ready for you to take to your accountant

With the BAS (Business Activity Statement) due on 3 March 2009, if you don’t want to pay the ATO more than is absolutely necessary, then contact our Ormeau mobile bookeeping service right now so we can help you out

The December Quarter 2009 (Q2) Business Activity Statement is due on 3 MARCH 2009

If you’re hoping to get an extension, you’ve got buckleys as the Australian Taxation Office have already given you an extension from 28 January to 3 March.

If your chart of accounts is not set up correctly, your BAS Figures may be distorted

Really, you’ve got an extension on the extension, since the ATO normally ask for the BAS lodgment to be submitted by 28 February, which this year falls on a Saturday.

The next business day would be 2 March 2009. However, in Western Australia there’s a public holiday on 2 March, so the ATO have extended the December Quarter 2009 (Q2) Business Activity Statement due date to 3 MARCH 2009

Business Activity Statements can appear daunting. What many small business owners do not realise is that the completion of the BAS form is not where the problems can be. Where the challenge may in fact be, is the fact that the data entry is not correct.

Maybe you’ve been down to your local computer supply store and bought your accounting software at a Hardly Normal Sale. You’ve rushed home and wacked the CD into your PC and then followed the prompts thinking that everything will fall rapidly into place

If your chart of accounts is not set up correctly, or the allocations are incorrect, you could find yourself believing that you owe Wayne Swan far more than you need. And rest assured, our illustrious Treasurer will soon find a way of spending other people’s money.

I just need some help with Payroll, and BAS lodgements

Generally the problem is not with the BAS itself, rather it’s with the allocations and the data entry. So often we’ve seen clients who want to save money on bookeeping fees, by them trying to do the bookwork themselves.

Investing a few dollars in a good bookeeper once a quarter to help with your BAS can save you money

By not fully understanding the process, there’s a danger that your figures are incorrect, and you are declaring a higher Tax liability than is correct, and so you will be out of pocket.

Smart business owners understand that by investing a few dollars in a good book-keeper once a quarter, they actually end up ahead, compared to trying to sort out the bookwork themselves.

“I’m quite proficient with MYOB, but I just need some help with Payroll, and BAS lodgements, can you help?”

We often get telephone calls like this – Sometimes we an even help people over the telephone, there and then. Some clients need us to spend a couple of hours with them training to use the MYOB accounting package.

If you need help calculating your BAS from MYOB, then contact us HERE, sometimes it can be simply explained over the phone. Or we can look at your MYOB file and help you work out the BAS. Rather than getting stressed, contact us today

Other clients just need some extra help in working their way through the software to streamline their bookkeeping. Often we get referrals from book keeping clients who are very happy with the bookeeping service that we provide.
