As a registered BAS agent we provide business activity statement services (BAS services) such as giving taxpayers advice about their obligations under a BAS provision, preparing and lodging approved forms about a taxpayer's liabilities, obligations or entitlements under a BAS provision, transacting with the ATO on behalf of a taxpayer in relation to the taxpayer's obligations under a BAS provision.

  • Report and Pay the GST, your business has collected.
  • Claim GST Credits.

We prepare BAS personalised to each business or individual. We make activity statements to report and pay a number of tax obligations, including GST, pay as you go (PAYG) instalments, PAYG withholding and fringe benefits tax. We also help individuals who need to pay quarterly PAYG instalments also use activity statements. We help you lodge BAS on time before the due date to avaoid interest and penalties.

Our services are customized to fit the needs of our clients and their budgets. We have cost effective, monthly and hourly rate pricing packages available. Whether you're looking for a turnkey outsourced Bookkeeping department, on-call full services for bookkeeping to help or anything else, we'll provide the customized accounting services you need without the overhead of a regular employee or the hourly rates of a firm.


We look after your invoicing, paying and record-keeping. Some of common business activities, we perform are:


  • issuing invoices and paying your own bills (sole traders).
  • making wages and super payments
  • preparing cash books (paper or electronic)
  • preparing activity statements
  • preparing tax returns
  • preparing financial accounts – for example, profit and loss statements and balance sheets.

We provide a range of accounting services for our clients and take the responsibility for tasks and functions such as:


  • End to End Payroll
  • Data Entry
  • Petty Cash
  • Record Keeping
  • Reconciling Bank Accounts
  • Accounts Payable and Receivable

As a business owner you will have to fill the important role as bookkeeper. While bookkeeping is a statutory requirement, knowing your numbers is a critical part of running a successful business. In fact, up to date records lets you make informed business decisions and do year-end tax planning.


Your choice of accounting software is a very important decision and the software is one of the foundation stones in your business 'wall'. When it comes to accounting software, one size certainly doesn't fit all businesses. When recommending the most appropriate accounting software program for clients we always address these three key questions:


  • 1. What does your business need?
  •    Payroll, inventory, debtors, creditors, invoicing or a full blown general ledger that lets you produce your own financial statements?
  • 2. What is your level of accounting skill?
  • 3. Do you want to use a desktop program or cloud based solution?

As such, your choice of accounting software will depend on your business needs and level of accounting skill. For this reason we support a number of programs including Cashflow Manager, MYOB, Reckon (QuickBooks) and the cloud based solutions Xero (pronounced zero) and Saasu.

All too often we inherit clients who are using the wrong software in their business. This creates frustration and additional costs ,for that reason, we also offer you training to use the software of choice.

In some instances you might be too busy to juggle the bookkeeping function so we also offer you a full bookkeeping service. We can handle the record keeping so you can spend more time working ON your business and your marketing. Alternatively, if you happen to appoint an external bookkeeper we are happy to liaise and work with them.

We keep your business records by law generally for a period of five years after they are prepared, obtained or the transaction is completed, whichever occurs latest and in a form that we can access and understand in order to work out the tax our clients are liable to pay.


By keeping your records, we can help you achieve the following:

  • Complete activity statements, income tax returns and fringe benefits tax returns.
  • Provide written evidence of tax related transactions.
  • Reduce the risk of tax audits and adjustments.
  • Improve communication with ATO.
  • Resolve issues relating to disputed assessments or adjustments.
  • Avoid exposure to penalties.

Some records may need to be kept for longer periods, such as records relating to capital gains tax events. However, shorter record keeping periods apply for some records of individual clients with simple tax affairs.
