At Better Business Basics, we were designed to help SMEs get their financial records organised and systemised, using data from what’s happened in the past to assist them to survive and thrive in the long term.

With JobKeeper payments set to decrease in January, SMEs are looking for ways to get their business in the best shape as we enter 2021.

We don’t just take care of your day-to-day bookkeeping with the expertise, commitment and information you need to run a successful business, we’ll do it 10% cheaper than if you were doing it internally.
Financial HealthCheck
A healthy finance system needs Program, People, Process and Performance, working independently and together to create the optimum results. We'll ask the critical questions to make sure your business is maximising its potential and generating the biggest gains from the smallest of actions.
Your financial data needs to be complete, consistent and on-time. How do you spend the least time possible recording your historical financial data so that you can use it to help you build your future? We cover AP, AR, Debtor Management, Reconciliations, Payroll and Employment Compliance tasks, through to full reporting to help get you there.
Every business reaches this stage in the climb. You need the breadth and depth of a great CFO but you don’t need them all the time. You need someone who can drop-in, when you and your team need them, pick up the issue quickly and then work with your historical data and the economic context of the world around you to work on your future with you.


The Year of Hard Learning – Part Two
A few days back I posted what 2020 had taught me personally. With the break almost over, it is invariably a time to reflect on the observations of 2020 from a SME perspective.
The Year of Hard Learning – Part One
I’ve worked with SMEs for almost 20 years but no other year was like the one just gone. As I reflect on the bruiser of the year that was (which is why I love the break over Christmas and New Year so), I’m grateful that 2020 is where I learned more personally than any year I can remember as a working adult.
I’m the Fragile By-product of Both Parents Who Owned SMEs
Both my parents were founders and owners of SMEs. As a child, I remember all of the uncertainty we lived through like it was yesterday.
