Frequently asked questions

Where are my profits?

Sometimes profit and loss might show your business has made good profits for the year, but there is no cash in the business for the owner to draw down on. In most cases, this cash is all tied up in your accounts receivable. Accounting for professional services can help identify issues like this.

What rate should I be charging by services out at?

Business owners in the professional services industry are always trying to work out what rate they should charge their services out at.

Without doing a full analysis of the business and its associated running costs, it is very hard to determine what this rate should be. We often find that businesses are charging out their services far too cheaply.

What are my business requirements around employee superannuation, WorkCover, leave entitlements, and payroll tax?

Employee requirements is another question we get asked a lot, especially from new businesses that aren't large enough to warrant an in house accountant.

The more important aspect of this is the real cost of hiring another staff member. It isn’t only the wage cost you need to consider, the additional costs of super, annual leave, WorkCover, and payroll tax should be considered when making the decision of whether or not to hire additional staff.
