As a personal trainer, you would know first-hand how little time you have to spend at your desk or phone managing your business expenses. But when you’re trying to grow your business, client portfolio and your profit improvement potential, you have to keep up. Bank reconciliation is the cornerstone of good bookkeeping, as when up-to-date and accurate, it’s the key to pulling financial reports needed to track and analyse your income and cash flow.

Start taking control of your business performance and gaining true visibility of your finances by outsourcing to a specialist Gecko bookkeeper. We can help with the set up and categorisation of your accounts, provide advice on claimable expenses, ensure accuracy across your financial data and reconcile all business transactions as much or as little as you need.

Poor handling of a personal trainer’s AP (accounts payable) and AR (accounts receivable) can be detrimental to business, and often is a leading cause of business failure. Without staying on top of the money you owe, and what’s owed to you, you could find your finances in hot water.

Outsourcing these services to us means that our dedicated bookkeepers are on a mission to efficiently handle your AP & AR, ensuring that you’re never behind on incoming and outgoing payments, and you’re on top of your cash flow. Leave the follow up of unpaid invoices with professionals that are committed to keeping your profits on top, and suppliers happy.

Whether you need a full suite of Bookkeeping Services for your personal training business, specific bookkeeping support services, or training to manage your own bookkeeping, the advice any bookkeeper will offer, is to first invest in the right accounting software. Using software to manage your books does not require any former accounting skill sets, and most software on the market is made to be user-friendly, however, it does require a little technical knowledge, and at the least, some fundamental understanding of bookkeeping basics.

Our team of Gecko Bookkeepers have extensive software knowledge and experience, and will provide you with expert advice on which accounting software selection is right for your fitness industry needs before helping you set up your software and connecting your accounts. Further to this, we offer tailored training and support to help you develop your accounting software skills, giving you the confidence to make the most of your software, the advantage of saving time, understanding your cash flow and making use of your softwares internal offerings such as payroll services.

Depending on your earnings and business activity, you may be required by the ATO to lodge a quarterly BAS or monthly IAS statement. These lodgements are required by law to be submitted within the time frames the ATO has allocated to you, and failure to accurately lodge these statements on time can result in hefty fines. Working with a skilled bookkeeper for your BAS and IAS lodgement has many benefits outside of saving time and receiving full support for your financial statements preparation.

Our bookkeepers can provide you the knowledge and compliance relevant to your personal training business, keeping you up-to-date with new laws and ensuring you’re confident in lodging your statements every time. Further to this, as registered BAS agents, our bookkeepers can request you extra time for lodgements, and also communicate directly with the ATO on your behalf to create agreements such as payment plans. Don’t get caught in hot water with your statements! Our bookkeepers are dedicated to securing your business compliance and keeping your cash flow as healthy as possible.
