Pure Bookkeeping System


We are proud to use the Pure Bookkeeping System with all of our clients. We are accredited licensees, and all our bookkeepers have been trained in the Pure Bookkeeping System.


The Pure Bookkeeping System has been developed over 10 years by a team of professional bookkeepers and tested with dozens of bookkeepers working in 100's of organisations. It details industry best practice for bookkeeping, reporting and BAS lodgement. It is the only bookkeeping system endorsed by the Australian Bookkeepers Network – Australia’s premier professional body for bookkeepers. 


What does that mean for you?


First and foremost your books will be impeccable. Whenever you look at any report the numbers will be right. When your Accountant gets the books at the end of the year, everything will be perfect - you won’t have to pay for your accountant to fix anything up. And if you ever get audited by the ATO, the process will be a smooth and quick as possible.


So most of all it gives you peace of mind – you can relax knowing that the finances of your business are in good hands.


Here’s what an accountant says about the Pure Bookkeeping System:

“I’m blown away by the depth, thoroughness, and quality of the Pure Bookkeeping System, and the financials that I receive as a result. After experiencing the difference it makes to my business partnering a bookkeeper who is using the Pure Bookkeeping System I would never go back – and I recommend my clients only use bookkeepers who use the Pure Bookkeeping System”.

What is a BAS Agent?


In March 2010, the ATO regulated the bookkeeping industry.  Now all bookkeepers providing a BAS Service are required to register as a BAS Agent.


The requirements of a BAS Agent are:

  • Certificate IV in Financial Services - Bookkeeping or Accounting

  • Member of a recognised Professional Association

  • Over 1000 hours relevant experience

  • Professional Indemnity insurance

  • Ongoing Professional Development


What does that mean for you?

In the past, a bookkeeper was able to complete a MYOB, Quickbooks or Xero course and start charging for their services.  Unfortunately, due to their lack of experience, they often left a mess.  The client could do nothing about it except find someone else who, hopefully, would be able to clean up the mess.  It is a costly exercise both financially and emotionally.


As a BAS Agent, there is a professional Code of Conduct in relation to:

  • Honesty and integrity

  • Independence (acting lawfully)

  • Confidentiality

  • Competence

Breaching the Code of Conduct can result in termination of the registration and Civil Penalties involving fines up to $137,500.  At last there is something that can be done if you are left in a mess.


We are Registered BAS Agents, so that may give you confidence in the numbers, but at Somerville Bookkeeping Services we believe that great bookkeeping is not just about getting the compliance right ... it's also about giving you information about your business that is meaningful to you.

We’d love to hear from you!
