Like you, I run a small and busy business, so I understand the daily hassles required to keep the business running smoothly. It’s this hands-on experience that First Class Accounts clients really appreciate.

My business is only as successful as yours, which is why my team of dedicated bookkeepers and accountants bring all our experience and expert processes to bare, to help you run your business as efficiently as possible.

You benefit from the team’s collective experience of over 100 years working at the coalface directly with business owners and their accountants, in bookkeeping, staff management, budgets, accounts, compliance and all those frustrating “must-dos” that are the essential oil in your business engine. Check our skill-set and platform expertise below.

You don’t have to lug your accounts and paperwork to us. Your dedicated bookkeeper comes to you as often as you need, be it weekly, fortnightly or monthly. This saves you time so you can focus on growing your business.

And because all First Class Accounts staff undergo continual professional development, the team is completely up to speed and holds strong relationships with all the major accounting software services – Xero, Reckon and MYOB.  We also have a team of  Legal Trust experts using Leap, ActionStep and Practice Evolve. As well, all computerised records are protected by secure backup and recovery systems, so no matter what happens, your finances are safe always.

Our goal is to minimise the time spent on your books, while maximising your profits. Like you we’re locals, so the coffee we bring is always the best quality. Call today to set a meeting to get to know us and how we can help you improve your bookkeeping. Why not make it the next thing you do? Just ask for Maria or Conrad – 02 9369 5330.

Trusted by Businesses across Australia

In 2004, I acquired a small to medium size business of around 120 employees out of voluntary administration and appointed Busy Bookkeeping Eastern Suburbs (based on a referral from my accountant) to assist with establishing the relative reporting and financial account structure and to deal with the mess that had been left by the previous owner. Initially, this was intended to be a short term arrangement whereby the structure would be set up and the history appropriately dealt with. However due to the professionalism, technical competence and business model offered, Busy Books proved to be a valuable asset to the business. Consistently providing value added information and advice(both proactively and re-actively)and always having multiple qualified staff that are familiar with my business available to respond to ad-hoc queries has resulted in a lasting partnership which we would struggle to operate without. Consequently, Busy Books have been involved in various capacities(all regular) since 2004 and continue to be the primary bookkeeping tool I use in my business today. The Busy Books team provide support for all of our geographies (Australia, New Zealand and Canada) from our office in Sydney and compliment my team of 2 additional full time finance staff. I highly recommend Busy Bookkeeping as a professional accounts and bookkeeping service provider and would endorse any decision to utilise their service.

Dear Maria, I would like to take the opportunity to commend you on your exceptionally talented staff. Larisa Kelly has been attending to our financial records since mid 2013. Since that time, Larisa has identified and rectified a number of errors in our accounts caused by previous bookkeepers, primarily as a result of previous service providers not having a thorough understanding of our LEAP systems. Larisa has demonstrated a knowledge and experience with LEAP and the manner it integrates with MYOB well and truly beyond our expectations – calling her “proficient” does not give sufficient credit to her expertise. I would have no hesitation in recommending Larisa, and effectively your services too, to any of my colleagues who require assistance, as I have done a number of times already. Further, I strongly recommend and encourage you to take steps to become a certified consultant in LEAP, as it is of great importance for LEAP customers to feel confident in handing over their bookkeeping work to a consultant that will appropriately manage their financial records within that system. I would be more than happy to provide any feedback or recommendation required by way of referral, or in relation to your certification process. Kind Regards, Antonella Sanderson Principal Solicitor / Director Accredited Specialist Family Law
