WHAT WE DO
Easy Reporting Services
Count Forward delivers bookkeeping services to Businesses with the expertise of a CPA Commercial Accountant, giving you peace of mind that things are being done right.
We use your numbers to paint a picture to build your future. We provide accurate, relevant, reliable, meaningful information in a timely manner.
We educate our clients on the understanding of that information and how it impacts the success and growth of your business.
Once you are set up, we can be your outsourced accounting department, so you don’t have to worry any more about the day-to-day bookkeeping. We’ll ensure your transactions are recorded correctly, reconcile your bank accounts on a regular basis, and process any periodic adjusting entries from your tax accountant. But best of all we’ll give you back time – to run your business, to focus on customers, spend more time with family or just to take a break.
Keeping your books in order is only the start of what we can do together. Wherever you want to take your business, we’ll help you get there. We can meet regularly and analyse your results, go through your key metrics and highlight areas to work on to improve profitability and cashflow.
- Business and strategic planning
- Growth and profit strategies
- Budgets, forecasts and cash flow projections
- Financial Management reporting
- Financial analysis
- Costing & Pricing strategies
- Strategic Management advice based on key financial reports and analysis
SET UP AND CONVERSION
Whether you are moving from a shoebox full of receipts and an excel spreadsheet, or if you are currently using old desktop software, we can help you get set up in the cloud. We’ll customise a chart of accounts for you, or use your existing chart, connect your bank accounts and import your historical records into your chosen online accounting solution, so you’ll be ready in no time.
This might sound simple enough, but it can be a big time-eater if you do it yourself. There’s also a big room for error here if you try to rush it (being a time poor business owner!) which can cause all sorts of issues. Your bookkeeper will record all of your transactions, allocate them to the correct accounts and produce regular reports so that you can see how your business is doing.
INVOICES & RECEIPTS
Producing invoices, handling receipts and processing payments is something that your bookkeeper will do for you. We all know that sending out invoices straight away can get you paid faster, so this is going to save you time AND money.
BOOKKEEPING & BAS
If lodging your Business Activity Statement (BAS) gives you a huge headache each quarter, it’s time to hand it over to your bookkeeper who will handle this for you. Phew!
- Bookkeeping completed on a monthly basis
- Reconciliations of all bank accounts on a monthly basis
- Monthly financial reports
- Preparation & lodgement of quarterly BAS
- Quarterly check in via Zoom – review of reports & business performance compared to goals, including next quarter planning.
- Year-end preparation for the Tax Accountant
- Unlimited email and phone support
If you have employees, then you’ll be glad to know that your bookkeeper can take your payroll tasks off your hands. No more checking timesheets or calculating things like superannuation or payroll tax for you!
- Setup Employees in ATO Single Touch Payroll (STP) System
- Prepare payroll weekly/fortnightly/monthly
- Monitor employee entitlements
- Lodge Tax File Number declarations
- Review, advise and lodge PAYG Withholding and Superannuation
- Reconcile End of Year wages
- Report, lodge and send employee payment summaries
- Roll over payroll year if applicable
If you’re ready to get set up with some accounting software but have no idea where to start, your bookkeeper has got you covered. Your bookkeeper is an expert at this and can make it easy to transition.
The main advantage of using a bookkeeper rather than DIYing it, is that your records will be accurate. So, if the ATO ever comes knocking at your door to do an audit, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that everything will be okay.
