Bookkeeping is a nuisance to most business owners. We want to help you shift from wasting time to turning your accounting into a useful business tool that improves the results you get from your business.

BASE offers BAS and bookkeeping services for business owners who value their time. We want to empower you to use today's technology where it streamlines your business processes. As Xero, Quicken and MYOB partners, BASE works differently from traditional bookkeepers in a number of ways.

Firstly, we work remotely from our clients, using a range of cloud hosted accounting software packages, and various communication and online tools to make working faster, simpler and more cost efficient. This means you won't have to accommodate us in your offices which helps us keep your overheads and our costs controlled. We are available to work from your office if that is your preference.

This also means faster turnaround, so you'll be working with business figures as close to real-time as they can be, enabling you to make business decisions based on real figures. Using advanced cloud hosted packages like Xero, BASE will show you how to streamline your business accounts, improve processes, reduce paper and give you real insight into your business financials through effective reporting. Your accounts will be secure, and backed up off-site which means should disaster strike at your business premises; your accounting information is secure and easily recoverable. As your bookkeepers, we would only have access to enter information and expenses in to your system - you maintain control over your payments and bank account at all times.

Secondly, we have a team of experienced and qualified BAS agents, bookkeepers and consultants to assist you. This includes Financial Accountants, Compliancy Specialists, Cloud Accounting Specialists, and a range of support staff. This ensures we can match our resources to fit your needs, and will always have someone here to support you.

Thirdly we work a little differently in how we charge. BASE works on fixed fee arrangements or set monthly fees which include your monthly software license to Xero. We also don't have lock in contracts, and we offer a 90 day money back guarantee, ensuring your complete satisfaction with our service.

Using a cloud hosted accounting system means this data is available electronically from anywhere you have internet access, whether work or home computer, tablet or smart phone. It is always backed up, so you will never lose data. Security? Works the same way online banking is secured.
