We also service businesses in the accommodation and tourism industries with small Xero bookkeeping, payroll and compliance solutions.

Here’s how Heart Bookkeeping can save you time, reduce stress, and support your journey towards a more profitable and financially secure hospitality business:

Managing your hospitality business’s finances, including payroll, expense tracking, and financial reporting, can be overwhelming and time-consuming. Heart Bookkeeping can efficiently handle these tasks, freeing up your valuable time to ensure you can focus on providing exceptional guest/customer experiences.

Our team are Xero Certified Advisors and experts in designing streamlined and easy to use bookkeeping systems and processes for hospitality businesses. As well as Xero, we have specific experience in connected apps that help to service hospitality businesses such as Deputy, Tanda, Kounta, DEXT and Square.

Using other connected apps? Our tech savvy team are very resourceful and ensure they update their knowledge to be able to provide you with the financial data and support your business needs.

Hospitality businesses often have a high value of bills they have to process and pay. We employ DEXT receipt scanning software to help us efficiently and accurately process your bills and can also manage and create batch payment files each week for you to pay your suppliers.

We also handle supplier statement reconciliations and liaising with your suppliers on accounts matters. Our clients tell us this is a HUGE time saver in their business and can’t imagine having to tackle this task on their own.

Beyond managing your day to day bookkeeping and payroll we invite you to join The Cashflow Project program. This program is designed for business owners just like you who want to gain clarity, control, and confidence over their financial numbers and cash flow. We’ll provide you with the tools and skills to set a financial plan for your business and support you to monitor your progress and make necessary adjustments along the way.

Running a small hospitality business can be a real adventure but it’s essential to keep up to date with your ATO and other reporting obligations. Food and Beverage businesses in particular, that are using alot of fresh ingredients and employing staff, know that planning your cash flow to ensure you’ve set aside enough GST, PAYGW and staff superannuation are crucial to staying afloat. Heart Bookkeeping can assist you with this as we manage your day to day bookkeeping and payroll.

Engaging Heart Bookkeeping is like hiring your very own accounts person but without the HR headaches that come along with it. Our team of professional bookkeepers are reliable, responsive and aren’t going to leave you for a better job offer 😉

We’re not just here for the short-term; we’re here for the journey, committed to growing alongside you. So, if you’re ready to experience bookkeeping services that go beyond the numbers, choose Heart Bookkeeping – your dedicated financial support team.

Office Information

Heart Bookkeeping was intentionally built in the cloud, providing services to our clients from day one on a remote basis. And although we’ve expanded our physical footprint to include Lismore, Hobart and Townsville, we’ve been very intentional about designing our offering to ensure all business owners in Australia can access and benefit from the services we offer.

We work on your business remotely using Xero accounting software. We are available by phone or email and we customise our bookkeeping solutions to meet the changing needs of your business. Our fixed fee pricing structure means no nasty bill surprises and ensures we’re always working hard to create efficiencies in your bookkeeping processes.

We understand that each small business owner is at a different stage in their business journey so we have packages that support you through each of these stages. Those ready to get on top of their cash flow struggles should check out “The Cash Flow Project”

Why pay for the time spent rather than the results achieved? We don’t charge an hourly rate, but instead provide you with a fixed fee solution so you know exactly what to budget for, providing you with cost predictability and removing the possibility of bill shock.

Fixed fees align our interests with yours as we have every reason to make your bookkeeping processes more streamlined and reduce the amount of time you spend on bookkeeping related tasks.

At Heart Bookkeeping we only use and recommend Xero online accounting software. Born in the cloud just like us, Xero provides small business owners with a user-friendly accounting experience and can handle all your day-to-day bookkeeping tasks as well as connecting with over 1,000 apps to simplify tasks such as payment collections, inventory, job management, CRM and more.

If you’re currently using another accounting software or struggling on excel, Heart Bookkeeping can get you set-up on Xero and transfer your important contact, payroll and other business information across so that you’re up and running in no time.

Yes we do! Depending on your learning style you can choose between two different delivery methods for your Xero training with us:

  1. Self-Paced Online Xero Training ($49 per month)
    This is an affordable option for those who want to get their head around the basics of using Xero. Our training videos take you through the basics of each area of the Xero platform and give you access to downloaded checklists so you can ensure you’re on the right track.

    We’re always adding new content to the training portal so you can build on your basic knowledge over time and gain confidence in the quality of your Xero numbers.

  2. One-on-one Training via Zoom or in person ($550)
    This Xero training option is suited to those who want a customised approach to their Xero education. It’s a way to fast-track your learning as we customise this training to focus on the areas that are relevant to your business and you can ask us questions that relate to your business and your Xero file.

    You get 2 hours with one of our Xero certified gurus + up to one hour of additional phone and/or email support in the 2 weeks following your training session.
    We also give you FREE access to our Xero Online Training platform for one month so you can access our downloadable checklists and additional training content.
    Learn more here 

We believe you get the best value out of working with us when we connect with your accountant so we’re all working together.

During the onboarding phase we reach out to your accountant to introduce ourselves and give them an overview of the services you’ve engaged us to deliver. We ask them to provide us with information that will help us do our job and that will ensure we provide them with a Xero file they’ll love.

We also touch base with them at key points in the year to update them on your business performance and get guidance from them on varying the business’s quarterly tax instalments you’re paying to the ATO if needed. After the end of the financial year we send them all the information we know they’ll need to get started on your tax and financial statements and make ourselves available for any queries they may have.

Coming from a public practice background, the leaders at Heart Bookkeeping have been on the receiving end of client and bookkeeper-prepared Xero files just like you, and know the difference a great bookkeeper can make to both your client and your accounting firm.

Heart Bookkeeping partners with responsive and proactive accountants and accounting firms to get the best outcomes for our mutual clients. Not only do we provide you with beautiful Xero accounting files and year end workpapers, we flag any changes in the client’s business that may require your advice and expertise. We also handle all your client’s Xero and transaction level queries so you have more time to spend on services such as tax planning and business structuring that will make a real difference to the lives of your client.
