At Bee Group Accountants we ❤️ Bookkeepers

(and other Accountants, for that matter).

Introducing Just The Tax.

We want you focussing what you do best, so we can do what we do best!

As a bookkeeper, we’re sure that you want to work with an Accounting firm who supports you, who gets your client’s work prepared in a timely manner and is one who won’t poach your clients. You will find that here at Bee Group Accountants.

We do not offer bookkeeping services but do need to introduce our current and prospective clients to someone who can look after this important task for them.

Bookkeeping is a skill that requires a special person who has a keen eye for detail to ensure transactions are processed correctly. They also need to be someone who can get things done to strict lodgement programs.

We love working with bookkeepers as it means that we both get to do what we do best.  

How we help Bookkeepers

We have a sister company, sixty:forty.

Through this business we can offer some really cool stuff.  One area we are focussing on is building tools that help small businesses grow. We know accounting and bookkeeping. We love technology and small business. So we thought, why not bring these things together.

One of the first tools we have developed is a ABN and GST compliance tool that will help make your life easier. As you know the ATO is using technology in its compliance driven approach. And it seems to think that small businesses have the same deep (taxpayer funded) pockets that they do and keep rolling out new reporting requirements. These do nothing but place an ever larger burden on us to help our clients meet their compliance obligations.

The ABN & GST Checker is a little compliance tool that will save you hours. It will help you check the ABN records of every supplier before you pay them. Simply connect your Xero account to the sixty:forty platform and in a few seconds you will have a feed of all of the ABN’s of your supplier contacts.

And this is just the start. We have lots of little tools on their way.

Through sixty:forty we have both free and paid plans which can also help support you grow your business as well.

Looking for new clients? 

When you are a member of sixty:forty you are featured in the business directory where you can showcase your business.

We tell our clients that their bookkeeper is their business best friend. We help connect small business owners with a bookkeeper using our marketplace. There’s no charge for a listing, but the really good promotion options are only available for paying members. If you hold one of our micro-certifications, these are displayed against your profile as well. 

Done-for-you lead magnets

Through here we have a range of resources that you can either use yourself as a lead magnet or you can refer to your clients. 

One of these is our Ultimate Bookkeeping Task List, which you can use to help you scope out a job – either when you take it on or when you do an annual review. For our sixty:forty members, we can even offer you your own co-branded version. 

Looking for a Hand?

We also have a number of trained data entry assistants that you can work with if you like for overload periods or just so that you can start working your business like a business – and not a job. We have a rigorous in-house training program that covers skills that you would expect from a data entry assistant, and they are based both in Australia and in the Philippines, so budget is no issue. 

Extra Recognition for you

We know how valuable a bookkeeper is to a small business owner, we also have micro-credentials issued through sixty:forty that cover Bookkeeping Health Checks, Financial Housekeeping and Chart of Accounts Reviews.

We supply the project scopes, tools and resources to simplify the deliverables for you as well. So you can add another service to your business without any headaches.

Our micro-certifications are also a searchable field for the business directory for clients looking for people with specific skill sets. These certifications act as a verification of competency.
