Did someone say June?!
WTF happened? It seems like only yesterday our elf on the shelf was a little shit wreaking havoc in my house every night.
Now it’s nearly the end of the financial year, which means we only have 29 weeks until Christmas (for those of you who are organised and start their shopping early).
So, what does EOFY mean for you?
Mountains of stock to count?
Piles of paperwork to sort?
A computer to smash into a bazillion pieces after spending hours trying to get it to cooperate?
Purchasing flashy new toys to get in those last deductions?
Making an appointment with your favourite person *cough cough* your accountant, to get your tax return sorted, and a refund in your bank account ASAP?
Want to know what it means for me and my team? No? Well here goes:
Collecting every possible deduction for our clients, making sure everything is on point before we lodge June BAS’s, reconciling payroll for the year, issuing group certificates to staff, completing Single Touch Payroll (STP) registrations, giving clients budgets and cashflow forecasts for the next financial year to set them up for success, and if we have time, we’ll sleep for a few hours here and there.
EOFY is like a marathon for business advisors, where only the strongest survive, and caffeine is king. It’s also when a lot of us come down with what can only be described as the worst case of man-flu known to man.
Why am I telling you this?
Because I’ve had quite a few small biz owners approach me over the past couple of weeks wanting to ditch the EOFY overwhelm and leave it to me and my team to stress about, which makes sense, because why should we both lose sleep?
However, we are currently in the process of planning out every second of our time over the coming eight weeks.
That means this is officially the last week you can book in with Save My Books to complete your bookwork for the 2019 financial year. After this week we close our books for new enquiries and put every ounce of our brain space into our booked clients until August/September.
So, if you want to take some of the load off your shoulders, and rock up to the accountant’s office with accurate numbers for your tax return (numbers that don’t involve a shoebox of crumpled receipts or the ATO breathing down your neck), hit me up today at firstname.lastname@example.org, before I officially close our books until the next financial year.
