Breaking News & Updates
30 JUNE IS VERY LIKELY a date dreaded by most bookkeepers. If you’re new to bookkeeping, we know it takes a while to remember everything that needs to be done, which is why we’ve been putting together blogs containing EOFY tips and checklists to make sure you make it to August!
And continuing in that tradition, we’ve put together one more checklist to help you out with your end of financial year analysis — some tips on keeping your clients’ accountants happy.
End of Financial Year Checklist to Keep Your Accountant Happy
Once you’ve done all of your EOFY reports, reconciliation and payroll (see our EOFY payroll checklist), you’ll need to forward on a few reports to your clients’ account.
These reports will vary from client-to-client and depend greatly on the size of the company, entity, or what services you’ve been engaged to provide, but typically every accountant will need the following:
- Reconciliation Reports — BAS GST, payroll and accounts
- Reports — balance sheets, P&L, general ledger accounts, accounts receivable & accounts payable at 30 June
- Details of any motor vehicle usage
- Accounting Information System copy of data file (backup)
