Bookkeeping Services Australia
Whether you’re a retail store, social media influencer, large digital enterprise, or anything in between, one thing is certain. A quality bookkeeper is essential for your growth and success!
A bookkeeper maintains accurate and up-to-date records of your financial transactions, helping to keep your cash flow healthy, your data compliant, and your tax obligations met.
But that’s not all. Bookkeeping also enables you to make better decisions about your business. Because your numbers tell a story. When you can look at what they’re indicating and make decisions based on data instead of guesswork, that’s when your business can really grow and scale.
National Accounts are a team of accountants and bookkeepers with a passion for helping businesses keep their finances running smoothly. Our head office is located in Adelaide, but we offer bookkeeping services to businesses of all sizes all over Australia.
What is Bookkeeping?
Basically, bookkeeping is the practice of systematically recording a business’s daily financial transactions. Bookkeepers record your ingoings and outgoings, organising your data in a way that gives you absolute clarity on your company’s financial ecosystem.
A bookkeeping service will also perform various day-to-day financial activities such as invoicing, paying bills, collecting debt, reconciling accounts, and lodging your BAS statements.
Bookkeepers will also run reports that help you understand exactly where your money is going, where it’s coming in from, and when those transactions have happened, or are due to happen. Looking at these reports can tell you ‘the story behind the numbers’ and allow you to predict and plan your cash flow with greater accuracy.
Most business owners are too busy to record and track all of their daily income and expenses. If you want to spend less time invoicing and chasing payments, and more time focusing on growing your business, you should consider hiring a bookkeeper.
Here are some of the tasks a bookkeeper can help you with –
- Account reconciliations
- Debt collection
- Banking receipts and bills
- Processing payroll
- Generating financial statements
- Lodging BAS statements
- Expense tracking

Is a Bookkeeper and Accountant the Same Thing?
Bookkeeping and accounting are terms that are sometimes used interchangeably. But in actual fact they both carry out very different roles within a company’s financial world.
Bookkeeping is a largely administrative practice. It’s focused on recording transactions and performing day-to-day functions that are related to those transactions.
Your bookkeeper is someone that’s on the ground and highly involved in your day-to-day financial operations. They are the gatekeepers of your cash flow, they are the ones that keep your books up-to-date, compliant, and correct.
Accounting is a more strategic practice. Accountants have a largely advisory role, providing analysis and advice at a ‘birds eye’ level. They look at your reports and help you strategise how to bridge the gap between where your business stands financially and your long-term goals.
Accountants can also provide high-level advice and assistance with things like company structure, tax planning, governance and compliance, cost of operations, and ASIC maintenance.
A simple way to look at it is that accountants help you maintain your business’s financial health based on the data that your bookkeeper provides. But it’s your bookkeeper that drives the financial engine every day – without them, a business could easily fall into cashflow chaos.
