Bookkeeping Services for Your Business

Outsourced bookkeeping service
by Hot Toast

At Hot Toast, we love numbers.

Since Hot Toast started, we’ve made it our mission to transform creative and real estate businesses with our range of outsourced finance solutions that include bookkeeping services, general accounting, CFO services and automation technology.

We have a proven record working with creative and real estate industry leaders as their cloud-based bookkeeping service and have an array of testimonials and awards to back us up. Our team is passionate about managing your accounts to the highest possible standard of accuracy, efficiency and compliance, at a fraction of the cost of hiring talent in-house.

Customisable bookkeeping service

Our bookkeeping and finance solutions are customised to suit your business and are designed to save you the time, money and headspace you need to focus on what you do best: solving creative challenges, winning business and wowing customers. Our professional bookkeeping packages can include a combination of the following services.

Accounts Payable and Receivable

Allow us to quickly and accurately process, issue and receive invoices to ensure a consistent and predictable flow of cash. We stay on top of outstanding invoices and gently encourage payment without jeopardising the client relationships you have worked so hard to build. Our team can also manage the efficient payment of supplier invoices, ensuring you have a good amount of cash in the bank to keep your business moving whilst keeping supplier partners happy.

Payroll and Superannuation

Paying employees accurately and on time is crucial to the smooth running of your business. Let us manage the complete pay-roll process for you, including compliance, tax and leave requirements, PAYG summaries and reporting, and fielding staff questions and requests.

End of month and mid-month processing

Use the end of the month to celebrate performance, not crunch numbers by leaving reports in our capable hands. We process and close your accounts, and provide a snapshot of how you’re doing with thorough profit and loss statements, review of client profitability and outstanding receivables, and team performance to keep everyone on track and accountable.

BAS and IAS Lodgement

We understand how onerous BAS and IAS preparation and lodgement can be. Our registered BAS agents and business bookkeeping team are fully trained and qualified to stay on top of GST and PAYG requirements and obligations, keeping your business in ship shape with the Australian Tax Office.

Budgeting and Reporting

Understanding what your numbers are telling you about the health of your small business can be a challenge. Let us turn all of that data into a clear picture of where your company is now, and where you can take it in the future through our comprehensive analysis, budget planning and reporting.
