Aussie Bookkeeping basics


Hi, I’m Deb.
I’m a qualified teacher and now a bookkeeper and BAS Agent with over 10 years of experience in bookkeeping

I’m passionate about helping Australian business owners understand their business finances, so you can make informed decisions in your business.
The mix of my expertise in education and bookkeeping combines to make me the ideal person to teach Aussie business owners how to understand their business finances (without needing to learn another language). I break down complex financial concepts (that make most people flee) into digestible, easy-to-understand language that makes people feel at ease.
Thanks to my experience in education, I translate the complex financial lingo into plain Australian English for you, so you can breathe a sigh of relief (rather than feel a panic attack coming on before you’ve even started).

So... you have questions?

Aussie Bookkeeping Basics is a foundational program.
It’s for Australians who have a passion and are considering starting their own business AS WELL AS those who already run their own small business and want to understand their numbers so they can make informed decisions.
You have lifetime access!
All of the Aussie Bookkeeping Basics content can be started or accessed at any time after you have signed up. I want YOU to be able to come back and use the course content as a reference guide.
If you sign up, and then later on realise that you want a refresh on payment systems, you can come back and look at that lesson again. Or if you are a sole trader and decide you want to employ someone later on, you can come back and look at the section on Before you hire your first employee.
Anytime. Anywhere.

You will get access to the course immediately upon purchase. We’ll send you a link with all the information you need to be able to login and get started!

I get it – running your own business is HARD WORK. Wearing all the hats is exhausting.
The Aussie Bookkeeping Basics course is a self-paced implementation program, meaning you can work as many or as little hours as your schedule allows. There is no rush to complete the program in any set timeframe.
You can come and go as you please (like a small child imagines the pantry or fridge), and complete things in your own time, at your own pace.
There will be fortnightly webinars held, to help answer any questions you might have (don’t stress – you’ll get access to the replays so you can watch them anytime), and introduce you to the next topic. However, there is absolutely NO pressure.
I get it – finding money right now to pay for awesome things (even things that you can possibly claim as a deduction in your tax return) is hard. The cost of living has made all the belts of small business owners much tighter.
So, I have made it even easier for you to join this fabulous program – monthly and fortnightly payment plans are available!
I’m passionate about helping people (you probably already know that!), and support is just an email or message away. I’m here if there’s something you’re not quite understanding, or need explained in a different way, or if you have a question about how that information specifically relates to you in your circumstances, or even if you need help naming your newly-adopted cat.
I also hold regular Zoom meetings where you can come and ask your questions and get support.
Outside of the Zoom meetings, the best way to get support is to email That way I will see your message and be able to respond as quickly as possible.
