Common questions people have about our service

How do we charge?

Key Admin charges by the hour.  Once we have a good understanding of your business we can then charge either a fixed price or by the hour.

Why should I outsource my bookkeeping?

It can be more cost effective as you will only be billed for the time spent working on your business by your dedicated bookkeeper. We can guarantee cover if your bookkeeper is away on leave as we have a buddy system to ensure that there is never a drop in service.  You can also access a variety of different skill sets within our organization to help you develop the best processes to help your business run smoothly.

Can’t my accountant do my bookkeeping for me?

Your accountant may offer in house bookkeeping services however we believe your bookkeeper can offer end to end office support to help your business. Accountants may also charge considerably more than a bookkeeper!

We also specialise in streamlining your administration and other business processes to make your business run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.  This could include add on software such as job management or document scanning programs. 

Can any bookkeeper do BAS preparation and lodgment?

No.  Only registered tax practitioners can offer a BAS service.  Registered BAS Agents are required to keep up to date with their legislation knowledge. Key Administration Solutions is a Registered BAS Agent.  There are heavy penalties for offering a BAS service as a non-registered provider.

What does Key Admin bring to my business that is different from other bookkeepers?

Key Admin really cares about building hands on, professional relationships; we are honest, transparent and upfront. We will always go the extra mile to make sure you feel comfortable with your finances and business decisions.

The training programs, quality control measures and support systems ensure we have a network of highly compliant bookkeepers.

Do I need to clean up my books before I hand them over to Key Admin?

No, we will include a clean up for you and if required, set up an industry-specific cloud accounting solution that best fits your needs. Our team is experienced and knowledgable with all the major accounting software including Xero, QuickBooks, MYOB, Reckon and other more customised solutions.

Why small and medium businesses?

Small and medium-sized businesses are often short on resources and time. Managing the books and ensuring the business is tax compliant becomes the responsibility of the business owner along with a lot of other tasks. While larger businesses can often hire a dedicated bookkeeper, most small business owners aren’t in that position.

Small business bookkeeping is what Key Administration Solutions specialises in and our professional bookkeepers in Croydon operate with integrity and transparent processes so you feel comfortable that your finances and business are well taken care of. We’re always only a phone call away and offer perfectly plain-speaking bookkeeping language that is easy to understand and act upon.
