e-BAS Accounts is a boutique bookkeeping practice based in Marshall, Victoria. We mainly serve small businesses, particularly those working in a service-based industry. We currently have two staff members, Louise McLoughlin (owner and BAS Agent) and Ellie Ryan (senior bookkeeper). Our practice is run from our respective home offices (Louise in Victoria and Ellie in Western Australia). We don’t really have business hours per se, instead, we work when it suits us throughout the day, allowing us to achieve a good work-life balance. We encourage our staff to work in a flexible mode to ensure they can take care of their families as well as our clients when required. In general, staff are given bookkeeping assignments and a due date. As long as those assignments are completed on time, staff can choose which days and hours they work in order to meet those due dates. This works very well and provides our staff with a level of freedom they enjoy.
We can visit clients who live locally in Geelong, however, we prefer to work remotely with all of our clients, no matter where they are located. We are able to do this by use of various cloud-based software, such as Zoom for meetings, Xero, Saasu, QuickBooks Online and MYOB for bookkeeping and Google Workspace and Dropbox for storage (and many others). Working virtually with clients, allows us to maintain our flexible work ethos and work-life balance as mentioned above. We believe our clients also enjoy this type of working relationship as many of them need the same flexibility in their working-day to knock over bookkeeping tasks quickly and efficiently. Working remotely with us allows for this flexibility. It goes without saying, working virtually with clients has meant we have been able to build an Australia-wide client base.
e-BAS Accounts is a “no-frills” bookkeeping practice. At the end of the day, you probably won’t get anything more from us than you would from any other bookkeeping practice. However, you will get a bookkeeping service run by hardworking staff who are dedicated, efficient, professional and keen to make your accounts sing! We may not have all the bells and whistles, but we will ensure your accounts are always up to date and compliant, allowing you to breathe and have clarity about your business.
