Hi Moni,
things have changed and bookkeepers are more regulated with the introduction of BAS agents. Your first port of call should be the Tax Practitioners Board to start the process of becoming a registered BAS agent. It takes months, so start early.
To get going more quickly, find a registered BAS agent who is willing to supervise your work while you are waiting for your own registration.
I can also recommend the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers as an organisation worthwhile joining.
With regards to registering for GST, that is really a question for your accountant and depends on a few things like your structure and clients.
All the best
