If your small business has a bookkeeper this conference might be worth attending.
If you've read our 44-page Australian small business accounting software toolkit, you'll know that there are plenty of ways to make life a lot easier when it comes to doing your bookkeeping.
So it's with interest we notice this October will see the launch of a book called The E-Myth Bookkeeper, which claims to reveals why most bookkeeping practices don't work and what can be done about it.
The book will be launched at the Australian Bookkeepers Network's annual conference on the Gold Coast.
The 2014 ABN Conference runs from Friday 17 to Sunday 19 October at Sea World on the Gold Coast.
The four themes of the conference are legislation and industry regulation, technology, technical knowledge, and business improvement.
Among the presenters are:
- Australian Taxation Office Assistant Commissioner Colin Walker providing news and updates from the ATO, and Tax Practitioners Board chair Ian Taylor doing a similar job for the TPB;
- Australian Bookkeepers Network and Australian Bookkeepers Association director Darren Hagarty showing how cloud technologies can transform business processes;
- SunSuper's Mathew Gilroy discussing the implications of SuperStream for employers; and
- Australian Bookkeepers Association director and Fax n Figures Bookkeeping principal Kerrie Jarius explaining how to deal with difficult customers.
Conference organisers note that attendees can log 11 hours of continuing professional education from this event, which is more than the minimum required in any one year by the Tax Practitioners Board.
Tickets for the conference cost $895, or $795 for ABN members. Accommodation and breakfast are not included.
