Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Q: How does it work?
    A: We will work with you once a month to keep on top of your accounting needs, usually this is incorporated with GST returns. We can review KPI’s – ie. debtor days (45 days + = management in crisis), gross profit / cost of goods sold %, turnover days, profit, provisional tax reviews.

    Accounts Receivable (what clients owe you at the end of last month) = x
    Sales Turnover (last 12 months) = y
    x/y = Debtor Days
    (If greater than 45 days = management in crisis! – Give us a call)
