Hi everyone and thank you for coming to my website.
My name is Catherine Jackson. TheBooks Accountants was the brainchild of my mother, Lesley, who recommended I start an accounting service that is not restricted to business hours. The idea came when there were no job opportunities after I returned from overseas travel. It started in March 2011 as a bookkeeping service and progressed to being able to supply Taxation and Financial services once the appropriate licenses were obtained.
I am a fully qualified accountant holding memberships with the Institute of Public Accountants (IPA) and Tax Institute of Australia (TIA), and have experience in providing bookkeeping, accounting and tax agent services. I also am a Registered Tax Agent and hold a Limited Australian Financial Services License (Limited AFSL) with the Australian Securities & Investment Commission (ASIC).
The aim is to provide a convenient service to our clients. We prefer to initially meet clients face-to-face (less chance of identity fraud), but thereafter complete alot of engagements via email communications. This makes life easy for clients who cannot find the time to attend an office during business hours. Face-to-face availability is in the evening or on weekends as needed, with limited time within normal business hours also availiable.
We do not have a business office, but are happy to meet our clients at a time and place that suits.
