Bank reconciliation & data entry
Data Entry & Account Reconciliation is an integral part of every bookkeeping service. It's a way of picking up errors in processing or missed payments and receipts. Even when using automated systems with bank feed technology, it is still important to reconcile your financial statements consistently. Errors can occur during bank feed importing and matching, so by completing an account reconciliation regularly these errors will be picked up.
Your designated Gecko professional gold coast bookkeeper can handle this for you. Account reconciliation can be completed for the following (there may be others applicable in your business):
Bank statements & credit cards
Payroll accounts (Wages, Superannuation, PAYG Payable)
GST and BAS (including reconciling to your ATO balance)
General Ledger for Year End roll-over and tax preparation.
Accounts Payable & Receivable
Inventory and Assets
Tasks like these are time consuming for small business owners and sole traders. Our team of bookkeeping experts can take this off your hands or help train you to complete this task more efficiently.

Why Gecko? You decide.
Being a Gold Coast business owner means you have lot of different roles, when outsourcing your bookkeeping, it takes away the stress from your financial management. We have listed the top four benefits of outsourcing your books to let you decide if it's the right choice for you!
You might be spending more time than you want on processing and reporting your own accounting and payroll information, and not enough time doing what you should be – making money.
It’s less expensive to hire a bookkeeper than to employ a full-time staff member to complete these tasks. By hiring us, you’ll only pay for the actual time your dedicated bookkeeper spends on your accounts.
Aside from wages, don’t forget the typical expenses an employee can cost your business such as:
Annual and sick leave.
Benefits and work functions.
Equipment and material costs.
Get better reporting and expert advice
One of your main motivations for outsourcing should be to obtain better financial advice and reporting. The right advice at the right time could end up saving your business money over the long term.
Our bookkeepers specialises in the services we offer. So you can trust them to handle your accounts correctly.
Free up time
Whether you’re logging your own hours doing the books or hiring a staff member to spend time doing them, you’ll be able to free up some time (or reduce your wages expense) by contracting expert bookkeeping services.
Having more time to allocate to business and relationship building activities can be vital. Our clients also find that they have more free time to spend back in their own lives, enabling their stress levels to decrease and work-life-balance to strengthen by getting a skilled bookkeeper on the job.
Improve your service and efficiency
If you decide to outsource to a bookkeeper, part of our job can be issuing invoices in a timely fashion and ensuring your bills are paid on time. We can help your business become more efficient by reducing risks such as possible late payments.
In addition, by taking these tasks off your hands, you might be able to focus on improving the service you offer your customers.
What can a good Bookkeeper do for you?
Many Gold Coast small business owners just don't have enough time in there day to stay up to date with the ever-changing compliance regulations, as well as the day-to-day management of their accounts, it's a lot to keep on track. A Good bookkeeper can come in to your business and offer a personalised and tailored package that will support you and your business through all stages of growth.
Your bookkeeper has many responsibilities such as data entry and receipt wrangling. We're responsible for recording every financial transaction in your general ledger using double-entry bookkeeping—usually called recording journal entries. That sounds like a mouthful, but often that can just be inputting all your transactions into your accounting software.
That said, bookkeeping is more than just dropping numbers into a spreadsheet—it takes meticulous analysis and just enough legal know-how. After all, bookkeepers will help you survive an audit by making sure your financial records are in order and your deductions are legal. Plus, anyone who has tried to manage the income and expenses of their own business knows that bookkeepers deserve some serious credit.
If you have a top-notch bookkeeper (like us), you’ll reap some of the following benefits:
Better budgeting decisions, knowing exactly where your money is going
Peace of mind knowing your books are in order meaning tax filing won’t be a scramble
Audit-proof business with detailed documentation required by the IRS
More hours in your day to focus on your business
Visualising the seasonal flow of your business
Understand the key metrics of your financial health: revenue, costs, profitability, etc.
