We’ve been here before, and will help get you out of this jam.

Melbourne Bookkeeping Services – did you say Marvellous Melbourne?!
We love Melbourne! We’ve been here for decades! We understand that as someone from Melbourne, life isn’t all lattes, black skinny jeans, and enjoying the rollercoaster ride that is Melbourne’s weather! Business demands must be addressed, from the essential all the way through to the transformational. Now, we understand some people will see Bookkeeping as a bore, and we are happy to take that burden from you. If you don’t like bookkeeping, give it to us!
We even written more about being a Melbourne Bookkeeper here, if you are interested.
What many business owners don’t realise is that an excellent bookkeeper should be providing you with accurate information on how your business is actually going. A bookkeeper isn’t simply someone who helps you avoid being ‘put in the naughty corner by the ATO’, a bookkeeper is a highly-trained professional with an incredibly useful business toolkit. An astute bookkeeper can help you diagnose and uncover unhealthy areas where you are leaking money. Any bookkeeper who is worth her salt will help you, not only stamp out inefficiencies, she will also help you target the areas that your business does well and maximise your profitability.
Without a sensible bookkeeper providing you with current information on how things are really doing, you are flying blind and relying on feelings and intuition; two things which definitely have a place in your business, but they must work in partnership with data and analytics. This is exactly what a highly-skilled bookkeeper can provide. Our Melbourne Bookkeeping Services will help you in all these areas!
Here’s a few other things we can do for you!
1. Single Touch Payroll
Single Touch Payroll or STP is an initiative from the ATO to make sure everyone is paying their fare share of taxes, that workers are paid on time, etc. We do Single Touch Payroll implementation, so if you haven’t got on top of that yet, we can definitely help get you conforming with that regulation requirement quickly and effectively.
2. Fixed Price Bookkeeping
Want to have a steady bill that keeps surprises away? With Fixed Price Bookkeeping, you get your bookkeeping routinely done, and don’t get a intermittent bills tricking you into thinking you have more spare money than you actually do. No one likes a bill that strikes like a bolt from the blue. Having a predictable bill from us is another way we help your business to run smoothly by stopping financial surges.
3. Xero accounting software
Although our CEO, Amy Hooke started out her bookkeeping career as a 15 year old, using MYOB, when she discovered Xero Accounting software in 2014, it revolutionised the way she could do things for clients. She jumped on board and has enjoyed using this modern software that makes keeping your books reconciled and up to date smooth and easy, ever since.
4. Panda Doc engagement letters
Who doesn’t love getting paid on time?
Theres’ nothing more annoying than having clients wriggle around trying to get out of commitments they made. And although the notion of doing business ‘on a handshake’ is a nice idea, in reality it’s really risky. It’s important to have well documented agreements of the commitments your clients are making to you, and you to them?
Who doesn’t want to automate their sales and invoicing process?
Everyone likes getting paid (on time), but nobody likes bookkeeping, data entry and time wasted on the administration process of invoicing. It’s time-consuming and unfortunately, it can be hard to outsource to someone else if you don’t have a proper invoicing procedure in place.
Off The Hook Bookkeeping use PandaDoc to help small businesses grow big, by boosting sales, improving cashflow and automating workflow. As a PandaDoc Gold Partner we have helped over 100 small businesses set up their engagement letters, proposals, pricing catalogues and templates so they establish trust with their clients.
This means you can onboard new clients easily and effectively, without having to draft up something new each time, saving you time and effort.
5. Receipt Bank – ATO approved electronic filing system
If you don’t enjoy piles of receipts falling out of your glovebox, or carrying a shoe box of invoices around to your bookkeepers office each month, then Receipt Bank is for you! Do you want to save time by keeping everything neat? Would you love to feel more organised at BAS and tax time?
One of our trained professionals will set you up with a Receipt Bank account, along with your own personal mobile app, where you can snap and upload your paperwork, straight into our office.
Reduce the risk of having to pay ridiculous fees if you ever get audited with an ATO approved online filing system. Allow us to provide you with data in record-time and save you plenty of headaches.
