So how much should you be paying for a bookkeeper? In Australia, a good bookkeeper charges in a range of $25 to $95 per hour depending on the experience and qualifications of the bookkeeper. A bookkeeper does need to be a registered BAS Agent to prepare and lodge BAS on your behalf. A BAS agent is required to undertake 30 hours of continuing professional education so this needs to be taken into account. At Northern Beaches Bookkeeping Solutions we do not charge by the hour but prefer to offer a valued based set fee package that covers all of the services you require giving you peace of mind. We take advantage of and pay for the latest technology in our business so that you can provide paperwork to us in the most efficient and easiest way.
