Is COVID and shutdowns affecting your business?

With the many businesses that I do bookkeeping for, some have been affected, but the majority haven’t, during COVID and the many shutdowns.
I think because many business owners have had to either pivot or look at different ways to operate their business, either by having staff work from home, or look at different options in the way they operate their business.

I am not taking it away that many hundreds of businesses have closed completely due to the lockdowns in Australia. But it does show the resilience we have in Australia and as Australians, that even a virus or shutdowns, won’t stop us from managing and operating our businesses.

I would be interested to hear your thoughts; how have you managed your business during all the lockdowns in Australia.
If you need any bookkeeping assistance, don’t hesitate to contact me anytime.

Do you know about the changes to unpaid parental leave entitlements?

The Fair Work Act was amended on the 26th November 2020, to include new unpaid parental leave entitlements for parents, who experience the traumatic events during or ahead of their unpaid parental leave.

In other words, this includes premature birth, stillbirth, death of a child.

It’s something we don’t want to talk about or even think about, but these changes will enable all eligible parents to access up to 30 days of their unpaid parental leave. This only applies to a child born or whose placement happens on or after 27th November 2020.

It is hard to fathom what parents go through during these traumatic events.

Even though I talk about business, bookkeeping and PAYG etc, these events do happen to so many people, which is so unfortunate and as a bookkeeper, I keep abreast with these changes which may affect you or your employee.

Changes to Casual Employment

If you haven’t heard already, on Friday 26th March 2021, the Fair Work Act 2009 was amended to change workplace rights and obligations for casual employees. These changes came into effect on Saturday 27th March 2021.

In a nutshell, what has changed is the Amendment Act has introduced the following
-The Casual Employment Information Statement
-The Definition of Casual Employment
-Pathway for casual employees to move to full time or part-time (permanent) employment.

In regards to the Casual Employment Information Statement, now Employers will have to give every new casual employee a Casual Employment Information Statement before, or as soon as possible after they start their new job.

The definition of a Casual Employee is the Fair Work Act has been amended to include a new definition. That a person is a casual employee if they accept a job offer from an employer knowing that there is no firm advance commitment to ongoing work with an agreed pattern of work. They will remain a casual employee until they either, become a permanent employee through: casual conversion, or are offered and accept the offer for full time or part time employment, or stop being employed by the employer.

The existing casual employees, which are those casuals who were employed immediately before 27th March 2021 and whose initial employment offer meets the definition, will then continue to be casual employees under the FW Act.

If this sounds all too confusing, give me a call and let me step you through it and remember that there is a new avenue to resolve some disputes about casual conversion through the Federal Circuit Court.

Businesses given a deadline to acquire a Director ID

Recent news that Business Directors now have a set deadline to obtain a director identification number under the federal governments digital business plan.

It’s providing directors appointed under the Corporations Act 2001 that they have up until the 30th November 2022 to obtain a Director Identification Number (Director ID).

It will apply for both existing Directors who were appointed prior to the start of the Director ID regime as well as Directors appointed during the testing phase. The Government released these details as part of the 2020 budget Digital Business Plan.

The director ID will help prevent the appointment of fictitious directors, which unfortunately some businesses have done. This is under the MBR program which was announced as part of last years.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me anytime.

Are Bookkeepers in demand in 2021?

The answer is YES

Since COVID started, it was already busy, but now that we are coming out of COVID, more people have reconsidered how they spend $$$ on their business and what is really great to see is so many more people are coming to the conclusion that it is way smarter and cheaper to outsource their bookkeeping.

It makes good economic sense.

More so now, then ever before.

With the Government making changes to requirements for businesses, business owners are confused as to what is on offer for them, what they need to do and when different things are due.
So yes, the answer is a resounding yes, we are very much in demand.

If you need assistance, you’re in the right place, just give me a call, email, pm, whatever and I can help you anytime, any day.

The COVID Rebound

Can you believe it’s been 12 months already of the 1st case of COVID. In Australia we faired pretty well compared to the rest of the world.

We are definitely in rebound mode, for many business owners, it’s survival. Some have been able to grow leaps and bounds, pivot, while others have relied on the Jobkeeper payments and still could close.

But the outlook looks to be that Australia business is on the rebound.

There has been new consumer confidence in the market, people seem to have more money, they are spending on homes, cars, holidays locally and interstate because they can’t spend that money on overseas holidays.

So there are a couple of things to think about with this rebound which is:

1.Cashflow
Look at your business and review exactly how much it needs to survive and what timeline.

2. Documentation
Document everything, if you are not already, look at streamlining your processes. Start reviewing your costs in pre-crisis revenue and margin to post crisis.

3. Inventory
As Australia is starting to reopen borders, early movers building inventory soon may benefit from pre-surge prices.

4. Prepare to Hire
I know that sounds crazy, but can you afford to add staff now or not. Do you have a HR person to help, look at identifying job descriptions, start dates.

5. Work with the best Bookkeeper
Now this one is a given, you need to talk to me. A good bookkeeper will save you a lot of $$$.

So remember, we are coming out of this pandemic and it’s exciting to see Australia rebound and show the rest of the world, how tough and resilient we truly are.

Why the wife or partner shouldn’t do the Bookkeeping

The number of times when I call a business owner and the response is ‘oh the Mrs / partner does the Bookkeeping.’

That there is where the problem lies.

Firstly, not all Mrs or Partners are fully qualified Bookkeepers. Not all know what they are doing.

But because you’re in a relationship with this person, you don’t question what they are doing with your books, because of course you trust them.

Unintentionally the Mrs/Partner may be entering in the wrong information or not coding an expense correctly, not out of spite, but just because they are not experienced and because most couples don’t want to upset the other, they trust they are doing the right thing.

More often than I can count, is when a business owner calls me, because mistakes have been made and then it causes problems in the relationship, which it shouldn’t.

Hence why when it comes to bookkeeping, right from the beginning you should outsource to a bookkeeper. Someone that is impartial, but also makes your business a priority, because that is what I do. I treat your business financials as my own. If I’m helping businesses with PAYG or payroll, reconciliations, whatever it is, I do it as if it was my own business.

So instead of allowing your Mrs/Partner to do your bookkeeping, it is way better to outsource this area of your business and keep your loving relationship intact, otherwise you may be visiting a divorce lawyer instead.

What will happen when JobKeeper ends?

Can you survive when JobKeeper ends in March 2021?

If you need help to determine your cash flow or if you have insolvency issues, then maybe it might be time to give me a call and let me help you.

There is talk that the ATO is tipped to pounce on businesses once JobKeeper ends.

If you are a business owner, I encourage you to act early on exploring your insolvency options before the ATO comes knocking to recoup debts.

The JobKeeper stimulus is set to expire on March 28, so now is the time to do an assessment on your business.

Firstly, do you have the ability to pay staff wages, rent, super, tax?

Can your business survive – post stimulus?

If the answer is no, then please contact me straight away.

It’s now December 2020 and Christmas is here, are you claiming all your business expenses?

Probably the last thing you would be thinking about is claiming your business expenses at this time of year. But only another 6 months’ time is EOFY, so we are mid-way and it’s a great time for businesses to go through what you are claiming as a business expense.

The ATO has found that ‘around 90% of small businesses are using a registered bookkeeper/tax professional to help them with their income tax obligations. That is music to my ears as it is important for Bookkeepers like myself to make sure businesses get their tax right.

Come time to do your tax return, are you claiming all of your business expenses?

Those businesses that keep good records and invest in a good bookkeeper will be less stressed when it comes to tax time in 6 months’ time.

Enlist a professional like myself to hep you with your books and uncover more to claim as businesses expenses.

Most people know that general office stationery, cost of renting your office or business space are some common expenses that can be deducted. But here are a few more that you may not know

– Cost of running your website, including maintenance, updates, service provider fees
– Marketing and promotional activities
– Tender fees, bet you didn’t know that, (even though that didn’t have a successful outcome)
– PR related expenses
– Parking related fees

Just to name a few.

Then if you operate and run a car for your business, you are also entitled to receive deductions.

If your business operates under a company or a trust there are additional motor vehicle claims as well.

But a few you can claim ie
– Registration
– Oil & Fuel
– Depreciation
– Interest on motor vehicle loans

Then there is repairs an maintenance on business machinery, tools, travel expenses for meals, parking, road tolls, fuel etc the list goes on and if you operate from home like many are now doing since COVID, you have home office cleaning expenses, percentage of phone and internet, stationery, home office equipment.

Give me a call, let me help you, so in six months’ time you won’t be stressed.

Keeping track of finances is a struggle, especially for cafes and restaurants

Do you fit that category?

Are you a business owner who owns a café or restaurant?

Those that work in this industry know how busy one gets with juggling staff, shifts, rosters, suppliers, cashflow, serving customers, taking inquiries, stock taking, cleaning, the list goes on.

I have many clients that work in this industry and you know why they outsource to me to do their Bookkeeping and BAS, because they don’t have the time.

Businesses in hospitality have the highest percentage of failure, due to poor record keeping, I bet you didn’t know that.

As a result, with little or no data, decisions are made on emotion, which is a bad thing when it comes to bookkeeping.

Statutory reporting for many cafes and restaurants can also be an issue with many supplier invoices being GST taxable, free or a combination.

Are you nodding your head in agreeance?

Once you have managed all your supplier invoices and then the rostering of employees, outsourcing to a Bookkeeping makes sense.

Nowadays since COVID, cafes and restaurants have had to come up with different ways to serve customers via delivery or for customers to pick up. Now that we are slowly coming out of the pandemic in different states, business owners are looking at better ways to serve their customers whilst maintaining social distance and following all hygiene precautions whilst still making sure food is served and delivered and ultimately the customer is happy.

It is a massive task for any business owner.

If this sounds like you and you need help, then please give me a call direct on 0429 363 047.

Does your business comply in a COVID-19 World?

Every business has a duty of care and especially now Post COVID. It has never been a more important time to businesses to stay on top of the ever-changing compliance obligations.

If you have staff, you need to consider and review the following

  1. The changing employment laws in Australia ie Awards
  2. Those returning to the workplace, if they have been working from home during lockdown
  3. If your staff are remaining working from home on a full time or part-time basis
  4. Payments and leave entitlements
  5. Reviewing your staff working hours, location and duties
  6. Standing down employees or ending their employment due to COVID

There is so much to consider during and post COVID-19. We in Australia are not out of the woods yet, we could get more waves of COVID in different states, business will never ever go back to what it used to be and I personally think, that is a good thing.

But be vigilant, stay on top of compliance and if you need me to look at these things for you, please do not hesitate to give me a call on 0429 363 047.

The ATO has issued a reminder to businesses who may be subject to penalties for missing October 2020 deadline to fulfil their Superannuation Guarantee Obligations

Don’t be one of those businesses that is subject to penalties.

By law, the ATO has advised and reminded businesses they cannot extend the due date to pay superannuation.

If you have already missed the 28th October deadline to pay your quarterly SG contributions, you will need to lodge a superannuation guarantee by the 28th November 2020 to avoid penalties, after this date you will incur the penalties and believe me you don’t want to miss the deadline.

‘The ATO noted the superannuation guarantee charge is different to the regular contributions businesses pay and is made up of SG shortfall amounts, interest on those amounts (currently 10 per cent) and an administration fee of $20 per employee per quarter’

If you need assistance now, then please give me a call on 0429 363 047.

Why waste your time with Payroll, outsource to Maree today!

Oh, I hear often many business owners who absolutely detest doing Payroll. They say it’s the worst job in the world.

Payroll is one thing many businesses should just outsource.

There is quite a lot involved with PAYG, Superannuation, making sure all employees are paid and receiving timesheets on time, the process of payroll can be extremely time consuming for any business that has staff.

Between making sure the business is running smoothly, training staff, meetings, looking after customers, growing the business, the last thing on a business owners mind is the Payroll.

I offer this to clients and it’s one of my most popular packages.

The package includes the following:

  • Processing of Payroll and emailing of payslips to employees
  • Single Touch Payroll Reporting
  • PAYG Lodgement
  • Superannuation Reconciliation and Lodgement
  • From 1 to 5 staff

Cost: $125.00 per month (GST Inclusive)

It’s actually extremely cost effective to outsource and if you have more staff, I can custom a package to suit.

Why you should insource your Accounts Payable to Maree

So what is Accounts Payable? It is basically paying the suppliers you purchased goods from on credit.

You need to complete payments coming in from your suppliers and also going through all invoice expenses to make sure they are correct, plus processing into your accounting system correctly, verifying and reconciling invoices.

Now for the average business owner, this does not sound like fun. But for me, I love this, I really enjoy it.

The benefits of insourcing this task is that your supplier invoices are paid faster and on time. Business owners can get busy and forget to pay their suppliers on time, this can result in stop credit and comprise the business supply chain.

I do offer an Accounts Payable package which includes the following and I use our Better Accounts Payable Systems to avoid invoice duplication. Insourcing this can also be more profitable as I offer a package based on how many invoices as opposed to hourly rate.

For a small fee, this is what I offer:

  • Entering of Supplier invoices into your Bookkeeping system
  • Depending on client preference:
    (Option 1): Preparing a list of suppliers due to End of Month payment run
    (Option 2): Preparation of electronic file, client can then upload straight into their online banking
    (Option 3): Logging onto client’s bank and paying suppliers on client’s behalf

    5-10 Supplier invoices $120 Per month

(For more Supplier Invoices, contact Maree to custom a quote)

It really isn’t a lot of money in the whole scheme of things and many times I custom a quote if they have more each month.

If you would like to know more about what I can do, please do not hesitate to contact me.

What does the future hold moving forward after COVID-19 and how it will affect your business?

Many businesses are going through so much turmoil at the moment and because many feel that after this crisis finishes that Bookkeeping may not be a high priority, that is definitely the opposite you should be thinking.

During this crisis, I have received at least 30 calls per day from those with employees, sole traders, large companies, you name it, I’ve had lots of different calls, because put it simply, people are confused.

Now more than ever.

What my job is as a Bookkeeper and BAS agent is to keep up to date with everything that is happening, not just at a bookkeeper level. I have read all the stimulus package information and all relevant documentation and as I am part of the Bookkeeper Association, information is also provided to give me the tools and resources at hand, that the average employer, employee or sole trader would not see or read.

So how will this affect your business once this virus passes?

It will be a slow and sometimes painful journey once everything starts moving again, but it doesn’t have to be. For anyone that is confused or even a little panicked about all of the information that is out in the media, then please email or pick up the phone or call me.

I am only a phone call away and this is the best time to have an experienced bookkeeper by your side once this crisis finishes.

Only a few months away to EOFY, time to review your finances

How many of you have actually recently gone through your finances for the last few months? I’m not just talking how January 2020 was when it comes to profit/loss, but I’m talking about reviewing the last 6 months.

We are now in January, well February 2020, so we only theoretically have March/April/May and June, so really only another 4 months before the EOFY.

That’s right 4 months.

Have you been making a profit?

Have you paid your staff correctly?

Have you paid your suppliers?

Have you been paid?

That’s right, how many people owe you money, have you chased these businesses for your money?

That’s the thing, when we are in busy, we are wearing so many hats.

As a Bookkeeper and BAS agent, it’s my job to keep track of all this for you each month. Sometimes I do have to make that call and do debt collection on a businesses behalf.

So does this sound like you?

Are you behind in your books, do people owe you money,well if any of the above resonates with you, then give me a call on 0429 363 047.

Let me get you and your finances up to date so when EOFY comes, it’s all smooth sailing.

How much time do YOU spend on bookkeeping per week?

This is a question I ask every single new client that calls or email or PM me, because most people say, I spend from this many hours per week to actually a full day over the weekend, just to enter my invoices.

That isn’t even including paying wages or following up invoices that haven’t been paid or BAS. Do you see where I am getting at.

Most people are spending pending on the size of their business from the sole trader to those with around 5-20 staff then to the larger businesses of 50-100 staff. Now your probably thinking a sole trader has the time to do their own bookkeeping, your wrong.

Most small business ie the sole trader are so busy working on other areas of their business that the Bookkeeping gets put to the side, in the too hard basket and many times this is where mistakes are made and when you’re a sole trader, you don’t want to be making mistakes or errors because it will cost you and as a sole trader you know that every cent counts.

Now for those that are medium or larger businesses that may or may not have their own accounts department, why would you think they would outsource to someone like me who works offsite. Great question.

The answer is to save money. Having an onsite Bookkeeper or Accounts Department costs money. Staff wages, super, leave entitlements, where they can outsource the same work to me at a fraction of the price.

Now look at your situation, are you spending 10, 20, 30 hours per week on bookkeeping?

Give me a call, because you will be surprised how little it will cost you and you have someone only a phone call away to answer any questions.

Someone that does your work without questions, is efficient…

So use your time wisely in business, outsource to Maree today.
