Why choose BG Private’s bookkeeping service?

Our growing team of almost 10 Melbourne-based bookkeepers ensure your bookkeeping is done on-time and to a high standard. And because every business is unique, we can tailor our service package to your needs.

We offer reassurance

We can give you the peace of mind that the financial administrative aspects of your business are taken care of and give you value-added insights so that you get the most out of your business.


Every business and sole trader needs and benefits from a bookkeeper. It helps to have the support of a bookkeeper from day one, but you can also retain a bookkeeper or switch to a new one at any time during the life of your business.

A bookkeeper can ensure you stay on top of your tax and compliance obligations. A bookkeeper can also handle payroll, invoices and record-keeping so that you have an accurate overview and historical record of your financial position. Plus, a good bookkeeper can help you with strategy, cashflow and forecasting so that you have confidence in where you’re at and where you’re going.

  • Peace of mind that your compliance obligations are taken care of
  • Clarity around your financial position and your business’s overall financial health
  • More understanding around what is coming for your business with the help of forecasting and financial modelling so you can make better business decisions
  • More time to spend on growing your business – as opposed to doing business admin
  • A sounding board who is available to help you navigate business ideas and challenges

Here are just some of the things we think it’s worth considering: Do they have the appropriate qualifications and experience to handle your business needs? Do you gel with them as a person? Is the team big enough to handle your needs as your business grows? Has the bookkeeper worked on clients in the same industry as yours? Does the bookkeeper answer your questions quickly and clearly, and do they reach out proactively with their own ideas? What accounting software are they experienced in? How much capacity do they have to serve you as a client well? What is their pricing structure?

Our bookkeeping services can be provided by CPA- or CA-qualified bookkeepers, and all our bookkeepers have qualifications ranging from diplomas in accounting and bookkeeping to master’s in accounting and finance.

We are one of Melbourne’s leading accounting and bookkeeping service providers, so we can definitely answer this for you!


For a business, both functions are important and complementary. A bookkeeper does the business’ day to day transactions (paying bills, paying staff, chasing invoices, record keeping etc), whereas an accountant analyses the data and provides additional strategic guidance, including tax planning advice.


Our Melbourne-based team of bookkeepers sit within our broader Accounting & Business Advisory division therefore we can easily connect you with Accountants or Tax Advisors should you need it.
