Frequently Asked Questions
Having a good bookkeeper will ensure you have efficient accounting systems that will help you manage critical components of your business.
Most small and medium business owners don’t have the knowledge, time or ability to effectively perform their bookkeeping duties. Outsourcing a bookkeeper will provide you with the time you need to focus on your business operations.
A bookkeeper is predominantly responsible for recording the day to day transactions of a business. Generally, an accountant is engaged to provide business advice at a higher level, such as structuring, tax planning and compliance. At Carbon, our bookkeepers are also qualified accountants so you get the best of both worlds!
Where a business engages its accountant on a proactive basis, it is beneficial if the bookkeeper works alongside the accountant to ensure all the business’ transactions are recorded and transacted in accordance with the accountant’s advice. Carbon Group has divisions in both bookkeeping and accounting, with qualified specialists in each team.
Good bookkeeping software is invaluable to businesses of all sizes. You can have a manual system, electronic (spreadsheets) or use bookkeeping software which would be the most efficient method. Each business has its own unique requirements for bookkeeping software and there are many to choose from.
These days, so many more bookkeeping software options have become available to use in the cloud. There is no better way to be able to access it from anywhere in the world. Gone are the days when everything is stuck on your desktop and only one person can use it at one time when making important changes. People can now have a business without an office and travel the world while they run their business.
When choosing the bookkeeping software, you need to make sure that it will do what your company requires. Ensuring also that if the bookkeeping software does not do what you require, that there are possible add-ons so it will make everything work smoothly and you can ensure the correct figures are being accounted for. Each feature has an important role to play and can help with the smooth running of your business.
Some features that you need to look for in bookkeeping systems can include:
- Affordability and accessibility
- Ease of use
- Time saving features
- Ease of bank reconciliation
- Multiple bank accounts – foreign currency
- Chart of accounts – ability to have subgroups or tracking systems
- Automated entries
- Invoicing and quoting online with multiple software options (tablets, phones )
- Purchase orders which switch easily to bills for payment
- Manage your cash flow scheduling of payments
- Expense reports, financial reports
- Customer service – tutorial videos

Online accounting software, Xero, is capable of doing all of these features. Being cloud-based, it allows the user to access information anywhere, on any device, at any time, meaning you don’t have to be in your office to access your information!

Hostel Case Study
A hostel-style facility that provides affordable accommodation in Perth to indigenous people had on-site bookkeeping, but their lack of systems meant there was no consistency. Incorrect invoicing saw them short-changing themselves by 26% revenue over 12 months.
After a full review of the hostel’s systems, Carbon implemented cloud-based Xero and provided payroll services. Carbon Bookkeeping took over coding and reconciling of all transactions, including invoicing major customers. With the new systems and outsourced bookkeeping experts on hand, the hostel got back on track.
With Carbon, you’ll only pay for what you need.
