Having your own bookkeeping business can be extremely rewarding. It is essential to make sure you have the correct systems set up to ensure efficiency in your bookkeeping business.
When you join Australian Bookkeepers Network (ABN), you will gain access to bookkeeping resources included in your membership. These resources include bookkeeping forms and templates that you will find extremely useful in running your business. Within your membership, you will receive access to the Bookkeepers Knowledge Base and Bookies Bulletin.
Bookkeeping Quote Template:
You may have a few package options available or perhaps each client has a specially crafted service just for them. Like most businesses these days, it expected to see a written professional quote. We have done the legwork for you with professional, easy to use quoting templates.
Bookkeeping Contract Template:
This bookkeeping contract sample is used between a client and a bookkeeper. It’s designed to outline the provided services for a one time or ongoing basis for the client to agree to. The bookkeeper will most likely have access to banking records, receipts, revenue details, and other financial information. A contract will outline the rights of both parties to agree to.
Bookkeeping Engagement Letter Template:
This is similar to a Bookkeeping Contract Template. Also known as a Bookkeeping Proposal Templates or Bookkeeping Agreement Letter, it is a Template that sets out the terms and conditions of service.
This template will outline what you are engaged to do since as a Bookkeeper, there is limitation to the service that you are engaged to provide. i.e. tax advice.
Bookkeeping Procedures Manuals:
There are plenty of ways to run a business. At ABN we have collated our years of experience to help you get started. You will gain access Bookkeeping business planning advice and procedure to save time and money from ‘learning on the job’.
Bookkeeping Record Book:
A bookkeeping record book is traditionally used for recording and tracking. These books can sometimes be useful for small business owners. They can assist bookkeepers with their financial statements, financial reports, accounts receivable and income statements. Although we find more often than not electronic bookkeeping is more efficient.
There's a great amount of value in an Australian Bookkeeping Network’s membership for those located in Australia. Here is a preview of just two professional resources, exclusively available to members:
Bookies Bulletin is our membership newsletter featuring articles on major industry developments. Changes relating to the tax office or legislation affecting bookkeepers both locally and nationally.
This resource is a wealth of information and advice keeping readers thinking. You will always be at the forefront of current bookkeeping issues. Allowing you to be better equipped to manage and build your business.
Bookkeepers Knowledge Base
Bookkeepers Knowledge Base is Australian Bookkeepers Network publication focusing on topics that matter that bookkeepers face day to day.
The BKB provides detailed explanations, case studies and pro-forma journal entries. These bookkeeping reports and accounting reports place an emphasis on GST tax codes and BAS treatments.
These publications are written specifically for bookkeepers and BAS agents. The feedback we receive is that this offers an invaluable tool to any to maintain and improve knowledge and skills.
