The Pure Bookkeeping System

What is the Pure Bookkeeping System?

We are proud to use the Pure Bookkeeping System with our clients. We are accredited licensees, and all our bookkeepers have been trained in the Pure Bookkeeping System.

The Pure Bookkeeping System has been developed over 10 years by a team of professional bookkeepers. It has been tested with dozens of bookkeepers working in 100’s of organisations. It details industry best practice for bookkeeping, reporting and BAS lodgement. The ‘PBS’  is the only bookkeeping system endorsed by the Australian Bookkeepers Network – Australia’s premier professional body for bookkeepers.

What does that mean for you?

First and foremost your books will be impeccable. Whenever you look at any report the numbers will be right. When your accountant gets the books at the end of the year, everything will be perfect; therefore you won’t have to pay for your accountant to fix anything up. If you ever get audited by the ATO, the process will be as smooth and quick as possible.

The System helps us empower you around your finances, we have many different reports we can provide. These range from quarterly financial reports to a sophisticated spreadsheet that will put you in control of your business. We aim to put the right financial information at your fingertips in a way that makes sense.

The Pure Bookkeeping System also means that all of our team will do the bookkeeping exactly the same way. Any of our bookkeepers can pick up where someone else left off. If someone goes on holidays, gets pregnant or gets hit by a proverbial bus, you won’t even notice the change.

All our bookkeepers are experienced, qualified, tested, and have been thoroughly trained in the Pure Bookkeeping System. This means  you can be assured of the highest quality.

One of the biggest risks with a regular bookkeeper is that everything is in his or her head … well not any more. If you choose to leave or change bookkeepers for whatever reason, everything is in your very own Client’s Bookkeeping Manual. As a result your new bookkeeper will get up to speed quickly and easily.

Importantly, the Pure Bookkeeping System gives you peace of mind. You can relax knowing that the finances of your business are in good hands.

Here’s what an accountant says about the Pure Bookkeeping System:

“I’m blown away by the depth, thoroughness, and quality of the Pure Bookkeeping System, and the financials that I receive as a result. After experiencing the difference it makes to my business partnering a bookkeeper who is using the Pure Bookkeeping System I would never go back – and I recommend my clients only use bookkeepers who use the Pure Bookkeeping System”.

What is it that is unique about this system?
Session Checklist

The Session checklist is an important document that lets you know what has been completed in a processing period, and what is still outstanding. It will have important queries that might need to be answered by you, and will contain the next planned session. It is used for setting dates to help you have you BAS and other reporting requirements all completed on time.
The Session checklist will also report on what your outstanding liabilities are at any time, keeping you in tune with your business finances.  This ensure you are never caught out at BAS and End of Financial Year with any surprise Tax and Super Bills.

Client Bookkeeping Manual

The client bookkeeping manual is at the very heart of the Pure Bookkeeping system. It is the tool that enables all of your important information to be kept in the one place (securely), allowing for bookkeepers to step into each other’s shoes should the need ever arise. As mentioned before the manual would be entirely your property and you would also have a copy of the most recent version.
In bookkeeping language, it is essentially the “bible” for your business.

As it is created for your benefit it will be created and maintained at your expense at your normal bookkeeping rates. Your bookkeeper will be in touch with you to talk about how long they think it will take to create your manual, and to assure that it is well worth the time they will be putting into it.

Maximum Efficiency & Thorough Bookkeeping

While the team has been trained to complete all work in the most effective way possible, delivering the highest standard of bookkeeping will mean a small increase in the time taken to process and complete actions. This comes from thoroughly following checklists and performing high level compliance activities to make certain you are in the best hands. Each Session your bookkeeper will update a session checklist and spend priceless time making sure you are aware of your liabilities, and are therefore in control of your finances.
