Our client, a registered training organisation (RTO) for the scaffolding industry was using the services of a bookkeeper to keep their records up to date. We visited them and thoroughly assessed their record keeping requirements, working out what they were happy with and what would save them time. We moved their entire accounting system to a cloud accounting system and they have never looked back. They no longer need a bookkeeper, they have secure access to a dashboard which shows the bank balance, GST and PAYG payable along with outstanding sales and which supplies require payment.
We recommend all our clients take up audit insurance. One of our clients had a sole trading business installing customised concrete swimming pools. The ATO had targeted them for both an audit for GST compliance and income tax compliance. The ATO were withholding the tax refunds, charging penalties for late lodgement and interest. We managed to get the decision reversed, refunds released, the penalties remised and interest refunded. The Audit Insurance paid the fee for our services and the client was not out of pocket.
One of our clients manages 2 diverse businesses in the North West Region of WA, a franchise of HydroKleen and a Café, Dragonfly Café. To ensure they can manage their businesses and not have to worry about book keeping or ATO compliance, DASperth look after the payroll, book keeping and financial reporting. Ensuring that staff are paid correctly and that award rates are kept up to date along with GST compliance and monthly franchise reporting. This offers the client peace of mind so that they can focus on the day to day running of their business.
This marine labour hire firm needed a book keeper and accountant to help them run their business. As a start up, the time to train and source these staff was not available and so they chose to outsource these duties to DASperth. We migrated their accounting software from PC based MYOB to a Xero to allow the directors access at any time and to give them focused reports with executive summaries specific to their industry benchmarks. They have chosen to stay with the outsourcing model now and have found it saves them time and gives them peace of mind that the businesses finances are being managed by a CPA.
