Yotta Bookkeeping Brisbane Profile

New trends in the business world have changed the way people do business nowadays. Technology has brought businesses closer to people who can assist with the day to day business operations. These changes and trends have also enabled businesses to run smoother and efficiently as well as turn more profit. One of the key business operations that has really benefited from the latest trends and technological advancements is bookkeeping. Bookkeeping is an important aspect for every business because it helps businesses keep records of all financial transactions.

Bookkeeping is much like visiting a doctor- nobody wants to take time to see a doctor but neglecting an illness can lead to serious consequences. The benefits of using Yotta Bookkeeping Brisbane outweigh the financial consequences and disadvantages of an in-house or individual bookkeeping system. As a business owner, you have two options when it comes to bookkeeping services. You can either hire an in-house staff to do the work or hire another firm to perform the work for you. Outsourced bookkeepers are beneficial, that is why it’s an attractive option to many business owners.

Owners of small and medium sized businesses exhaust their time and energy while trying to be all things to all people. Therefore, they spend less time and energy on growing their businesses. By hiring Yotta Bookkeeping Brisbane, you save money, time and work with a team of professionals with advanced accounting skills. You also access top tools, reduce stress levels and focus more on things that are important to you. More and more businesses are outsourcing bookkeeping services instead of maintaining an in-house bookkeeping staff.

There are several benefits of hiring Yotta Bookkeeping Brisbane. Some of the business and lifestyle advantages of using bookkeeping services include:

More time

When you outsource your bookkeeping operations, you save valuable time that can be used to grow the business. Back-end office operations can cause distractions in your day-to-day running of your business, and maintaining an in-house bookkeeping team can cause a conflict of interest. These heavy distractions and time-wasters need to go because they slow the growth of your business. With outsourced bookkeeping services, you will not need to hire and handle bookkeeping staff.

Bookkeeping consultants work with business owners to create bookkeeping schedules that don’t interfere with the operations of your business. This frees up time for a business owner to run the business. Also, you will have time to relax because you will not need to do your accounts on weekends, evenings or late into the night.

Saving Money

Standard employees cost your business more than outsourced consultants. Regular bookkeeping employees can cost you approximately one and a half times more than outsourced contractors. By outsourcing Yotta bookkeeping, your business will save money on full-time salaries, employee benefits and part-time wages. Also, you will save on productivity costs that arise from hiring employees onto the payroll. Outsourced bookkeeping allows your business to only pay for what it needs. Yotta Bookkeeping Brisbane will also act like your financial watchdog- it will always be on the lookout for financial trends or cost-cutting opportunities that can help you grow your business.

Expertise for your Business

By outsourcing bookkeepers, your business will benefit from the expertise and experience of the contractors. Outsourced bookkeepers have advanced accounting skills and they are likely to perform their work diligently since they know there is a lot of competition in the outsourcing sector and they don’t want to lose any contract they obtain. Additionally, you can easily find a bookkeeping contractor who is an expert and has experience in your specific industry. Yotta Bookkeeping makes your work efficient and a lot easier because they know the best bookkeeping practices and understand how to properly assign their staff to tasks that match their expertise.

Reduced Paperwork and Stress Levels

Paperwork is a major cause of high stress levels in businesses. When you outsource bookkeeping services, the contractor will perform all tasks electronically and deliver the accounting paperwork and reports electronically hence reduce paper usage in your business. Even though you may have to print reports, you can easily access, edit and review them electronically without printing hard copies. This reduces paperwork, workload and stress levels in your business.

Yotta Bookkeeping Brisbane also reduces stress levels by allowing you to contact them anytime for assistance and advice. The customer experience is also excellent to ensure maximum support to clients.

More Focus on What is Important

By using a bookkeeping service, you can focus on more important things, both outside and within your business. A bookkeeping service eliminates the distractions in your business and enables you to concentrate on a business goal such as increasing sales or expanding into new markets. Maybe the bookkeeping operations in your business have prevented you from focusing on things outside your business, such as friends, family or games. A bookkeeping service alleviates all your concerns so that you can concentrate on what is important to you.

Bookkeeping services also eliminate the bustle and hustle in your business thus allowing your employees to focus more on their tasks. This improves employee productivity.

Access to Latest and Top Systems

Outsourcing the bookkeeping functions of your business allows you to access the latest and top bookkeeping tools and systems in the industry. Most businesses cannot manage to pay for the expensive bookkeeping systems and programs. Also, they cannot manage to keep up with the ever-changing laws and regulations. By hiring bookkeeping services, you are essentially buying and using those tools by proxy. These tools maintain organized books/records and create backups to ensure you are prepared for any event, such an audit by the tax authorities.

Yotta Bookkeeping Brisbane has the latest and top online cloud solutions such as MYOB, Xero and QuickBooks to ensure your financial records are readily available.

Low Staff Turnover

An internal bookkeeper can leave your business at anytime when they feel unappreciated, bored or when they get a better opportunity somewhere. The absence of a bookkeeper in your business can lead to financial chaos such as late salaries, taxes and poor cash flow. With a bookkeeping service, you may never need to hire again. All bookkeeping services work towards long-term business relationships thus they will rarely drop customers.

The business and lifestyle advantages of using a bookkeeping service are enormous. It doesn’t matter whether you a hairdresser, landscaper or shopkeeper. With the latest accounting tools and a team of highly skilled professionals, Yotta Bookkeeping Brisbane is able to offer quality and affordable bookkeeping services that are tailored to meet the current and future needs of your business.

There are a maximum of 30 children per session. Each workshop has entertaining activities and is fully-packed with entertaining demonstrations and fun activities. Most of the activities are designed to be individually performed and then the children will share their new knowledge with the whole class.

Here are more details of each year level’s program:

* Foundation/Prep
Basically, the prep program focuses on hands-on workshop where your child investigates movement. The questions how living things move and how their environment plays an important role to their movement can be answered. The program has 60-minute session with follow-up worksheets that should be emailed to the booking teacher.

* Year 1
For students who are enrolled in the Year 1 program, they experience first-hand the exciting science behind sound and light. They are introduced to the basic facts about light and sound including the senses we are using to detect them. They are shown how to manipulate the various characteristics of a sound like pitch and volume. Lastly, they are taught what are the different sources of sound and light around us.

For its hands-on workshop, students are exposed on the different loudness and pitch of various instruments and have experimented with making sounds by using common objects. They also get to know the colours making up sunlight. After the workshop, they make their own UV light detector.

* Year 2
The Year 2 program focuses on how an object’s motion and shape are affected by push and/or pull. This program is very fun while the children explore the different forces that cause push and pull and how these forces causes an object’s shape to change or affect its movements.

Ten Common Mistakes To Avoid When Selling Your Home

Selling your home isn’t something that you do every day-unless you’re a real estate agent. Over the years I’ve honed my skills in learning what works when it comes to selling your home, as well as what doesn’t.

Fortunately, other people have made these mistakes so that you don’t have to!

1. Ignoring an estate agent’s style tips

We all develop personal connections to our homes, but sometimes those connections mean that it’s hard to see our home through the eyes of a potential buyer. An experienced agent should know how to present your home in a way that will maximise your home’s selling potential.

2. Underestimating the importance of street appeal

First impressions matter, and potential buyers driving past or inspecting your home will take notice of your property’s exterior. In my experience, people buy in the first five seconds and justify throughout the inspection. Make a good impression from the outset and keep up to date with the mowing and weeding!

3 Under-investing in marketing

A targeted, wide-ranging marketing campaign designed to reach as much as possible of your buying audience is essential. Buyers fall into different groups and demographics, and a high quality marketing campaign will reach out effectively to all of these.

4. Not being switched on about going online

In our office, it’s where about 90% of our buyer enquiry comes from. The more you invest here the better. Only a small percentage of buyers look beyond the first page of property search results!

5. Being afraid to commit to a sale price

Committing to a sale price isn’t an easy task, but it’s one that should be a much easier decision when you consider that almost half of all potential buyers will pass over properties with no listed price. Why? It seems too hard, or worse, they fear it will be out of their range. Take the plunge and name a figure.

6. Holding out for a better price

Though it can be tempting to wait for a better offer, the property market doesn’t play by the rules of Who Dares Wins, so think twice before rejecting that initial offer. In my experience, often the first offer is the highest we’ll receive, and almost every record price we achieve comes from an offer made within the first thirty days.

7. Taking offers personally

A low offer on your property is not a reflection on you, or even on your home. Instead, they’re representative of a willingness to commit to opening negotiations. I always encourage vendors to see a low offer as a starting point rather than a final figure.

8. Opting for appointment-only viewings

Although there is the odd exception, for the most part opening your home for inspection is essential to ensure it’s seen by as many potential buyers as possible. We get around 10 times the buyer traffic if it’s open for inspection as opposed to by appointment viewings.

9. Cutting costs when choosing a real estate agent

If you think the best agent is expensive, try hiring the second best & see how much that costs you!

10. Failing to keep up with property maintenance

It’s almost always cheaper to do it yourself than to let the buyer use it as leverage for a price reduction.

I recently sold a home in Aspley where the building and pest report identified multiple maintenance issues at an estimated repair cost of $15k! As expected, the buyer tired for a $15k price reduction. I intervened & re-quoted with a local trusted trade and they seller got the job done for $3k. Fortunately, I managed to salvage the deal without a price reduction. However this could have been avoided or worse the deal could have fallen through.

So call that plumper you’ve been avoiding! For real estate Aspley, contact Justin Watt of Watt Realty today.
