ABOUT OUR BUSINESS

Who We Are

The Bookie Bookkeeping was launched in August 2020 by Naomi Cauley, who has a working class background and enjoys bookkeeping. Naomi decided to make bookkeeping her focus, specifically for our Tradies who often soldier on with their business during the day and do the books at night or on the weekends. Naomi has a solid understanding of both accounting principles and accounting software, and is ideally qualified to assist you in all your bookkeeping requirements.

THE BUSINESS MISSION

Helping Tradies and their families

To provide affordable and reliable bookkeeping for Tradies and their partners to empower them so they can enjoy their lives and spend more time on what is important.

BAS AGENTS

As of March 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 - Bookkeeping or Accounting

* Member of a recognised Professional Association

* Over 1,000 hours relevant experience

* Professional Indemnity insurance

* Ongoing Professional Development

What does this 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.

NOTE:  The Bookie Bookkeeping NOT a registered BAS Agent currently. While we work through the process, all BAS services will be provided under supervision and will be lodged by The Australian Bookkeeping Association.
