I received a phone call from a man called Luke who advised that he had a bookkeeper but wasn’t sure if she was doing the right thing or not. When we checked the MYOB file etc, we discovered that wages and superannuation just hadn’t been entered correctly! He had been paying this bookkeeper a substantial amount of money and when I advised him, he was guttered.
Throughout the ordeal, we have had to liaise with the ATO so our client would not be prosecuted as he really thought he was doing the right thing but unfortunately the "bookkeeper” wasn’t. Please make sure that your bookkeeper is a "Registered BAS Agent” to avoid an expensive mess you will have to pay someone to fix!
