“Bookkeeping” is a broad term that can be used to describe any of the number of different levels of skill required to provide a business owner accurate information about the accounts of their company. Bookkeeping tasks can range from basic data entry of creditors invoices through to providing detailed monthly reports to analyse profitability, budgets and cashflow.
The level of service you can expect from your bookkeeper depends on the level of skill of the bookkeeper you appoint to look after your accounts. At Books Onsite we provide a premium bookkeeping service which encompasses all levels of the bookkeeping function right through to management accounting reports to enable you to analyse your companies profitability. We believe the only way that this level of service can be provided is by us coming to your site on a regular weekly basis.
Here are some of the reasons we believe an onsite service enables us to provide a superior bookkeeping function:
We come to your premises. This means we get to know you, your business and your staff. This enables us to sit down with you and understand what information and in which format is most important for you to assist you in analysing your business performance.
All files are kept on your premises. There is no time wasted sending files back and forth from your office to ours. This also provides better security for your source documents and your data files.
One bookkeeper is allocated to you to look after all of your bookkeeping functions. If this work is done offsite, the work is usually shared around by various people (some not necessarily located in Australia).
We will establish a regular day or days each week that suits you. This way, all of your staff, clients and suppliers know that any accounts enquiries can be followed up on a particular day each week.
We can sit down with you to review monthly financial reports such as profit & loss, balance sheets, cashflow and actual v budget comparisons. If there are any amendments required we can update your accounts immediately and re-run the reports.
There is more accountability in an onsite service as you know exactly how many hours we are working each week.
