Frequently asked questions

If I engage Deciphered to do my books will I still need to chase up paperwork and attend to queries?
While every attempt is made to take as much of the burden of doing the books off your plate, we are unable to do what we need to do without the full support of our clients. Doing better business is really a team effort, and as such clear, consistent communications are crucial to ensure that we exceed the expectations of our performance and service while our clients are invested in achieving growth and clarity in their businesses.

We work with our clients to put in place tried and tested processes designed to make things as simple and easy as possible for our clients to shift the workload from their plates to ours but we always want our clients to stay connected to their accounts and what the story their books are telling.

Will Deciphered do my taxes?
At our inception, we made a conscious decision to focus on all things accounting…except tax! This was because we have found that too often small business owners get bogged down in the dread of tax, and this can create a bit of a glass ceiling for their growth. So we wanted to make sure we handled accounting differently by focusing on all 365 days of the year, not just June 30!

While Deciphered doesn’t do tax prep internally, we do work with some exceptional tax accountants. If you prefer to use your own tax accountant, that is ok too, we will ensure your books are accurately updated throughout the year so they’re ready to be passed on to at year end.


How much will this all cost?
We gave up a very long time ago trying to fit our clients, and their unique businesses, into boxes! We tailor our bookkeeping services to suit your needs and the needs of your business. We offer fixed fee packages and also hourly (ad-hoc) bookkeeping rates to suit all types of situations.

What best suits your needs is determined by many factors. Some clients are keen to have a more hands on approach to their bookkeeping functions and only require a more casual level of support, while others want to make the most of our team and our services to simplify their business and focus on working in the business rather than on it.

We offer all clients a complimentary (obligation free) meeting to allow us to get to know you and your business. We find this to be a great way for us to put together a detailed scope of work for us to work on, to ensure we are aiding you to solve as many problems we can and keep you moving forward. The experience our team can bring to your business is vast, and we work quickly to help you embrace efficiencies and best practices. So reach out. Connect with us and see how we can help you do business better.

Why is cloud accounting good for business?
What is cloud accounting?

In the case of cloud accounting, you keep your business books online. That includes records of income and expenses, and assets and liabilities. The information is encrypted, much like a bank’s, so only people with the login can view the data.

How cloud accounting works

Users subscribe to an online accounting software solution and move their books to the cloud. From then on, they can access their accounts from any web browser, or from an app on their phone. Most users connect the software to their business bank account, so that banking transactions flow automatically from the bank to the books.

Benefits of cloud accounting software

Running your business accounts online has many advantages.

  • Data about your sales or income and purchases can flow straight from your bank to your books so you don’t spend hours transcribing them.
  • You can see your current financial position at any time.
  • Multi-user access makes it easy to collaborate online with your team and advisors.
  • It’s online software so there’s nothing to install or update, and all your data is backed up automatically.
  • You can set up a dashboard showing important financial information like who owes you money, what bills are due, and how your cash flow is looking.

Cloud security is world class

As a small business owner, you might be concerned about a cloud service provider storing your data. But the cloud is one of the most secure ways to store information. For example, using cloud software, if your laptop is stolen, no one can access your data unless they have a login to the online account. With cloud software, your data lives online on secure servers – as opposed to on your hard drive.

Work smarter with accessible data in the cloud

The beauty of online accounting software is the flexibility it gives you to run your business from work, home, or on the go. You can be confident that you have an up-to-date picture of how your business is doing, no matter where you are.

Software updates can be developed and delivered faster and more easily in the cloud. This means you don’t need to worry about installing the latest version and you’ll get access to new features instantly. With cloud accounting software, you have the option to run your business remotely, from anywhere in the world. And when data is fluid and accessible, the possibilities are endless.
