Established in 2005, A Counting Edge offers premier bookkeeping services. Located in Fyshwick, we service all of Canberra and surrounding regions. With the benefits of cloud accounting we provide bookkeeping to businesses throughout Australia. We don’t just balance your books, we are here to help your business succeed by looking for ways you can save time, save money and perform your daily tasks more efficiently. We will keep you compliant and ensure you meet all of your legislative requirements. We individually tailor our packages to suit your business needs. This can be for as little or as much time as required. The most important aspect about A Counting Edge is not only our professionalism, but our approachability and communication we have with our clients. We believe the success of A Counting Edge is based on these values.


Bookkeeping has come a long way since its inception. Whilst a pen and ledger used to be enough to balance your family or business books, with today’s technological advancements we are now able to perform all of your bookkeeping requirements without even being in the same place as your business. It has opened up a real world of possibilities for businesses to outsource their bookkeeping to professionals who specialise in this area. This allows business owners to save time and energy so they can focus on other aspects of their business such as marketing, growth and development.

A Counting Edge offers a number of benefits to our clients. We have a fantastic team of bookkeepers who really do enjoy the work they do and love working together. Bookkeeping doesn’t have to be boring and our staff are proof of that. Never be left stranded with staff away. When you engage us you are not just employing one person, you gain the benefits of a whole team working for you. Our staff are qualified, experienced, efficient and reliable. We pride ourselves on accurate recording of information combined with excellent customer service skills. No question is too big or too small; we are always here to help you. We have fast and reliable internet, offsite backups with secure and confidential storage. We offer an obligation free consultation and quote.


We specialise in cloud based software including, but not limited to, MYOB and Xero.


The simple answer is: “All the financial record keeping you don’t have the time or expertise to do properly”.  A good bookkeeper will be a huge asset to your business because we have the knowledge and experience on how to accurately manage your business’s financial records. We can also provide insight into potential financial issues in the business.


Your accountant is someone who offers high-level tax and financial advice.


So as your bookkeeper we will manage the ongoing financial transactions of your business while your accountant will manage your tax and financial advice.


In saying that, we believe that having a good working relationship with your accountant will only benefit your business. By liaising with you and your accountant, it ensures that all of your business requirements are met without double handling of paperwork, information, data entry and lodgements.

Happy Clients


We are absolutely suited for all your bookkeeping needs.

A Counting Edge not only offers a comprehensive list of bookkeeping services, but we are here to help you with all of your business needs. With our knowledge, qualifications and experience with local business and a variety of industries we can help you run an efficient and profitable business. Working with A Counting Edge means you never have to worry about staff taking leave because we have a team of professionals working for you.

Accounts receivable (debtors)

Whether you invoice your own clients or A Counting Edge provides this service for you, we can assist in customising invoice templates, debt collection and management of your aged debtors by providing reminder statements as often as you like.

Accounts receivable (creditors)

Don’t worry about losing or paying your bill late again. We can tailor a specific system to ensure invoices are paid on time. Your books will always be up to date to make it easy for you to review your business financial reports so you can track where you are up to as you go and not just at the EOFY.


We can calculate and process your pays weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Long service leave, personal leave and annual leave will all be calculated for ease of reporting.

Payroll Tax

Once your wages exceed the nominated threshold in your state, you may be required to register your business and pay Payroll Tax. A Counting Edge will ensure you are compliant.


Let us help you track the value of the items you buy, sell and build. This will make it easier to review your inventory information to identify trends and keep track of your business.

EOFY management

Let us generate your staff payment summaries (group certificates) and lodge these via our ATO BAS Agent portal. Our software also allows payment summaries to your staff, again reducing your business administration and associated costs.

Financial reporting

We provide all of our clients with basic reporting, however depending on your business needs, we can customise any reports you require as often as you need.


Invoices, purchase orders and quotes can all be generated through our software. We can train you or your staff and customise templates to send to your clients.

BAS and IAS reporting

Stay compliant with your ATO requirements and let us process and submit your BAS and IAS reports. As an A Counting Edge client you have the advantage of an extended pay and lodgement period.


With different types of superannuation your employees might be entitled to, such as Superannuation guarantee, Salary sacrificed superannuation or additional super payments; you will need to ensure you are compliant in all areas. That is where we can help.

Expense / reimbursement claims

In most instances, you can claim a credit for the purchase of business expenses paid for personally. A Counting Edge will take out the expense and the GST to ensure this is an advantage to your business and you receive the greatest tax deduction and GST credit.

Bank and credit card reconciliations

Reconciling ensures that the bank account balances in your company file match your bank’s records. Reconciliations are usually performed on a monthly basis.

Insurance policies

A Counting Edge ensure your policies are taken up correctly and more importantly you are covered for the necessary requirements for your business. This includes professional indemnity, workers compensation, business, public liability and income protection.

Workers Compensation

If you have employees, including directors, then you are required to pay workers compensation and each state has their own rules and regulations. As bookkeepers we can help you stay compliant in this area.

End of Financial Year Summary for your accountant

Time is money. In addition to the usual tax requirements we process throughout the year, A Counting Edge goes the extra mile at EOFY by preparing a summary for your accountant. This summary is provided with supporting documentation to ensure your accountant is working with up to date information. Some of the things we cover in our summary include; new leasing, purchase of major assets, sale of business and change of business structure. This saves your accountant time chasing you as a client and thus reduces your accountant’s fees to you.

Bank Feeds

Take advantage of MYOB and Xero’s online accounting software with live bank feeds. We automatically provide our cloud based clients with this service. If you manage your own books and are not sure how to use Bank Feeds, our staff would be more than happy to come and train you.

In Tray

Want to save time and store your records electronically? In Tray allows you to upload invoices directly into your software to make it easier for us to check that all your tax allocations are correct (making BAS and GST more accurate to prepare).


As of 30th June 2016, all businesses need to be ATO SuperStream compliant. SuperStream is a Government reform aimed at improving the efficiency of the superannuation system. All of our customers are already SuperStream compliant. If your business needs help, contact us today.

Trust accounting

Many industries in the ACT require regulated trust accounts. A Counting Edge has the knowledge and experience especially in the real estate and legal industry to manage these needs. There are very specific guidelines when handling clients’ money on behalf of a business which need to be followed. This includes regulated control of the bank account, receipting and processing of accounts, right up until the audit process at the end of the relative tax year. A Counting Edge can take care of this for you.

Staff awards

Our staff specialise in FairWork Modern Awards ensuring your staff are up to date with employment contracts and payroll processes.

HR management

No matter what your HR requirements are, we can help. From advertising the position, assisting with selection criteria, interviewing potential candidates, referee checks to inducting new staff, contracts for staff, personal documentation, gathering payroll information and providing templates for payroll requirements and monitoring personal and annual leave, we are here to help.

Cloud accounting

If you want your business to work smarter and faster, cloud accounting software is a wise investment. Working in the cloud will give you a better overview of your finances and improve collaboration with us and your team. We believe a holistic approach to your business is paramount which is why we work closely with your accountant; cloud accounting allows us to do this more efficiently.

Onsite and Offsite service

Whether you want to enjoy all of the benefits of cloud accounting or you prefer to manage your books onsite, our team can help you.


With our new premises in Fyshwick, our clients can enjoy the benefits of our boardroom to entertain their clients and have meetings. If you would like to utilise this service, call our friendly team and arrange a booking.

We know how hard it can be to stay up to date with all the changes that occur. We are always happy to help your staff learn the latest software changes; assist with any difficult transactions they are not sure how to enter, or any other concern they may have. We can train them onsite or virtually over the phone, email or skype; allowing us to take care of your staff and business no matter where you are located.
