FAMILY DAY CARE EDUCATORS
As our name indicates, Family Day Care is our speciality. You will be speaking directly with a qualified accountant and Registered Tax Agent who specialises in Family Day Care. Our objective is to provide educators with all the systems, services and information that you require to gain the maximum financial benefit from your business with as little stress as possible.

Our services are available anywhere in Australia from the comfort and convenience of your home via internet and telephone, with access to after hours and weekend consultations available by appointment.

We have helped many new and experienced educators establish and operate very successful businesses. We have also been able to give advise to potential Family Day Care Educators. See below for more information.
FAMILY DAY CARE SOFTWARE, BOOKKEEPING, TOOLS AND CHECKLISTS
Family Day Care Educators have unique needs when it comes to easily and correctly recording their income and expenses. Making time to record your expenses can be difficult and it is common for educators to have many smaller transactions which have both a private and day care portion. As a result, it can sometimes be cumbersome and complex to use a general business software package.
 
In addition to this, it can be hard to get all of the information collated to ensure your accountant understands and claims all of the deductions you are entitled to claim. To assist educators in this process we have collaborated with software providers to develop accounting systems, tools and checklists that allow you to easily understand and comply with all tax lodgement requirements.
Some of these services include:
  • Family Day Care Cashbook System - Easy Cashbook

  • Smartphone applications for capturing expense reciepts and family day care percentages

  • End of year checklists

  • Family Day Care fact sheets and templates

  • Family Day Care Tax Guide
