Why Having Your Bookkeeping Managed in Australia is the Best Option!

Why Having Your Bookkeeping Managed in Australia is the Best Option!

At Tashly Consulting we are sometimes asked why we choose to perform our bookkeeping services in-house, rather than outsourcing them to cheaper overseas operators.

As proud South Australians, we love working with our local business clients and it gives us great satisfaction to employ staff and pay wages here in Australia. By using local service providers and staff, our business expenditure and profits stay in Australia and support our national economy.

We often work with clients who have previously outsourced their bookkeeping to overseas providers. Sadly, we usually discover their books have not been kept up to scratch which can become an absolute nightmare for the business owner. Luckily for these clients, we offer a Bookkeeping Rescue package where we can catch up on any backlog and bring order to apparent chaos!

In some cases, clients have outsourced their bookkeeping to Australian firms only to discover later that these firms are outsourcing the work to overseas providers without the client’s knowledge. The Tax Practitioners Board requires Australian firms to disclose if they are offshoring, but this does not always happen.

In fact, there are many aspects of bookkeeping which must be completed by a registered and licensed tax or BAS agent. The Tax Practitioners Board offers a handy search tool on its website, so you can check that your tax or BAS agent is registered and licensed to provide tax or BAS services.

Of course, we understand that budget constraints can make overseas services seem very appealing. But price is not the only factor to consider when choosing a bookkeeping service.

In our experience, in addition to not being registered BAS agents, overseas providers often have a poor understanding of Australian tax law and regulatory requirements, leading to accidental non-compliance (a risky scenario for any business owner).

Communication barriers due to time differences are common, while even simple instructions and requests can be “lost in translation”. Ultimately, what appears to be the cheapest option may end up costing more when you must pay to have the problems fixed. Not to mention how much stress a bookkeeping mess can cause
