Finance Options

And how do I treat them in my accounting software?   a)        CHATTEL MORTGAGE For a business that is cash based for GST a Chattel mortgage is a very good option to investigate, as you are able to claim the GST on the purchase of the car/equipment (for the business % of use) up front at the time you make...

How Much Do I Put Away For GST?

HOW DO WE CALCULATE FOR GST? The GST is not just 10% of sales. Tt is 10% of sales, less 10% of the purchases you make that have GST on them. The easiest way and the way I do it for myself, is just see how much GST you end up paying this first quarter, and divide it by 13 and put that much aside each week. If you think your turnover is improving then maybe add a little bit more - you can also reassess this each quarter. I have some clients who make sure that their bookkeeping is totally up to date, accurate and reconciled every week and do a tax summary report and transfer the exact amount...

Reimbursements to Owner

Q:  Sometimes stock or one off goods are purchased on the credit card of my partner, then the money for the sale is inputted into the business account, then the amount credited on my partners account is then repaid from out account how do we account for this? A: There are a couple of different ways of doing this. One simple way is to simply ignore the first payment by credit card totally and just record the bill as being paid by the cheque that you use to reimburse your partner, as if you were paying it straight to the supplier. This way is simple but usually not possible if you are...

Reckon Accounts in the Cloud

A significant number of our clients are now using the Hosted (Online) version of Reckon Accounts. I am using it myself for our own accounting. Some of the advantages of using the online version of the product are: 1.  You can access your Reckon Accounts file from any computer, any where, any time. 2.    Your file is very well protected.
