How do you feel when you receive the BAS?

dog bite

  • Do you growl?
  • Do you say words like &@#%?
  • Do you feel sick?

 

Just imagine what it would be like

  • if your customers paid on time
  • to have peace of mind,
  • to have a clear picture of the finances,
  • to actually feel relaxed at BAS time,
  • your suppliers didn’t need to call to remind you of payments due
  • and you had time to do the things that really made a difference to your bottom line?

And more importantly, you had time to spend with

your loved ones?

Small Business.

We are Registered BAS Agents

what does that mean?

As of March 1st 2010 the ATO regulated the bookkeeping industry. Now, all bookkeepers providing a BAS Service are required to register as a BAS Agent.

The requirements of a BAS Agent are:

·                  Certificate iv in Financial Services or higher– Bookkeeping or Accounting

·                  Member of a recognised Professional Association

·                  Over 1000 hours relevant experience

·                  Professional Indemnity insurance

·                  Ongoing Professional Development

What does that mean for you?

In the past, a bookkeeper was able to complete a MYOB or Quicken course and start charging for their services. Unfortunately, due to their lack of experience, they often left a mess. The client could do nothing about it except find someone else who, hopefully, would be able to clean up the mess. It is a costly exercise both financially and emotionally.

As a BAS Agent there is a professional Code of Conduct in relation to:

·                  Honesty and integrity

·                  Independence (acting lawfully)

·                  Confidentiality

·                  Competence

Breaching the Code of Conduct can result in termination of the registration and Civil Penalties involving fines up to $137,500. At last there is something that can be done if you are left in a mess.

We are Registered BAS Agents so that may give you confidence in the numbers, but the Team at Small Office Services believes that great bookkeeping is not just about getting the compliance right … it’s about empowering and educating you around your finances!
