I sacked my bookkeeper about 6 years ago (well divorced her actually), and have been doing my BAS and bookeeping ever since. The first year i went to the accountant for EOY tax, he picked up all the errors my qualified bookkeeper was making, got me back on track, and now I just email him the file in July each year, he only does depreciaition, etc. Otherwise it is an easy task and no big hassles, unless you really dont want to I would suggest do it yourself, why waste money on someone who has no interest in your business.

i know a number of small business’s who were getting their books done by so called qualified book keepers, and once they had a close look at what was been done, they quickly went back to doing it themslves.
