What is bookkeeping?

We organise your financial data into an easy to read format, and verify it by reconciling bank activity against your receipts, bills and invoices. In addition, we can take care of your invoicing, billing, payroll, superannuation, GST, cash flow forecasting, reporting and even your tax returns. Imagine never having to do any of that yourself, ever again!

What can your team do that I can't do myself?

Our software picks up the smallest discrepancies so that nothing falls through the cracks. It’s like an intensely thorough robot who we love to have on our team!

As for us humans, we have years of education and experience in bookkeeping and accounting technicalities, and the pooled knowledge of our collaborative team. We keep abreast of legislation changes and, as a requirement of membership of the Institute Of Certified Bookkeepers, we maintain our continued professional development.

For some businesses, DIY bookkeeping is possible. For most though, and especially during times of growth or uncertainty, engaging a dedicated bookkeeper can make a huge difference.

What sets Counting Clouds apart from other bookkeepers?

We’ve tested and selected a suite of software that enables us to work smarter. This delivers a level of thoroughness that isn’t humanly possible without it. Bookkeeping is constantly evolving, and we proactively evolve with it.

We can do the same for you! Our business technology experts have their fingers on the pulse of the latest apps. They can assess which ones will provide you with the greatest benefits and value for money, to save you the trial and error.

We also provide taxation services, which means your number wrangling can be covered from file set-up through to tax return lodgements - A full service to free you up to do what you do best.

Can I even afford a bookkeeper?

Based on our initial discussions, we’ll give you a 3-month estimate of our fees, and we’ll always be open to reviewing the scope of our relationship.

We offer both hourly and fixed-price value packages, so you can choose the option that makes you most comfortable.

Our aim is to SAVE you money. Your time is most valuable when spent on the specialised work that you do. Our job is to free you up to make the most of your earning capacity.

What if my situation changes?

Success in business depends a lot on navigating change, which is why we keep communication channels open with our clients. You might have a new idea, a personal life redirection, or your industry might require you to pivot. Our client relationships are some of the most rewarding parts of our work, especially over the long term, so let’s keep talking and grow together.
