Our Bookkeeping Team

If you put 10 bookkeepers in a room they would describe 10 different ways of doing the same thing. At Total Business Management we use the Pure Bookkeeping System to standardise the way our bookkeeping is done. Our bookkeepers are required to fulfil our four standards – education, experience, testing & training:

  • Minimum of Cert IV in Finance-Bookkeeping
  • Minimum 5 year’s experience as a bookkeeper
  • Successfully completed the Pure Bookkeeping Skills Assessment
  • Successfully completed The Pure Bookkeeping Training Modules


BAS Agents

We are Registered BAS Agents so that may give you confidence in the numbers, but the bookkeeper team at Total Business Management believes that great bookkeeping is not just about getting the compliance right … it’s about empowering you around your finances!

Since 2010 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
