How do we find a great bookkeeper?
Training and accreditation
All bookkeepers should have some sort of bookkeeping or accounting training and qualifications,
and be registered as a BAS Agent with the Tax Practitioners Board.
This means that they have been satisfied by the TPB (Tax Practitioners Board), and has acquired the skills, qualifications and experience to correctly account for GST and prepare and lodge your BAS (Business Activity Statement) according to legislation.
Like in life - the less experienced and less qualified bookkeeper will usually mean cheaper rates and not having the necessary skills to perform accurate book work. If you simply compare hourly rates, a highly experienced bookkeeper will always be more expensive, but highly experienced bookkeepers work smarter and faster.
