At the Small Business Lounge all of our bookkeepers are certified BAS Agents. If you are searching for a bookkeeper, it is very important that this person is a registered BAS Agent as well.
This ensures they are fully trained and have the skills and knowledge to perform the business accounting practices on a day-to-day basis correctly.
What is a BAS Agent?
A BAS agent is a person that assists clients and businesses with lodging their Business Activity Statements, GST preparation and other related tasks concerning the business’s finances.
They will also liaise with your accountant and give you advice and guidance around your BAS account. Many businesses choose to hire a BAS agent to help prepare their BAS and double check any other accounting coding you have been doing yourself before lodging.
Some other areas they are certified and specialised in include:
In addition, when submitting lodgements to the ATO there are various timelines and deadlines to follow. Hiring a BAS agent will help keep you on track with the deadlines for your business so that you are never late and don’t risk penalties. A BAS agent will keep your records and documentation lodged correctly and on time so that you can focus back on your business.
