Do your records need a spring clean?

Has your record keeping left a lot to be desired lately? Jobmaker and other government support has made matters even more complicated, and factoring it into your calculations is a confusing but necessary task.
Having your record keeping and expenses in order means you’ll have full oversight of your business and be in a better position for decision making. Income, stock levels, and expenses are all important to keep track of in preparation for business statements, returns and other mandatory activities.

  • Keep records for a minimum of five years
  • Streamline administration with digital tools. This will also make accounting and bookkeeping with us easier.
  • Reconcile mistakes.
  • Account for any personal use of business stock.
  • Keep business expenses separate from any personal accounts.
  • Only claim the portions of asset uses used for business purposes.
