Small business bookkeeping

Bookkeeping 2017-06-24

If you know that record keeping just isn't your cup of tea, I can provide bookkeeping services at whatever frequency you like.

You can use me as much or as little as you need - for payroll, invoicing, monthly reporting - or even only once a quarter when you have to get it done for BAS time. The timing and structure are completely up to you!

The frequency of your bookkeeping service is usually based on:

  • Your ATO requirements (quarterly or monthly BAS and IAS)
  • Any payroll or time-bound requirements
  • Your desired reporting quality and frequency (Profit and Loss)
"Blue Ribbon Accounting has become an essential part of our business.  With our business being on the road and little time in the office, Jen allows us to focus our time on our customers and doing what we do best.  We highly recommend Jen to any small business owner."
- Chantal Fraser and Clare Atherden, Oi! Taco Pty Ltd
