About

More time for what you love: your business.

Hello! I am Vicki Connolly, the owner-operator of VLJ Bookkeeping.

I come with more than 25 years of office and administration experience across various industries, with particular expertise in Accounts and Office Management. I mastered many of my skills during my position as the Office Manager of a busy engineering firm. My career journey has given me an invaluable appreciation of the practical operation and day-to-day workings of small and medium businesses: businesses like yours.

I bring first-hand knowledge of the advantages and benefits of quality accounts management reporting. I appreciate what is required to prepare and present insightful reports in a digestible and useful format; that helps business owners and Directors make essential decisions about their business now and to the future ahead.

I can remove the burden of routine tasks and bookkeeping. I can undertake processing and reconciliations, completing, and lodging your BAS and ensure you suitably meet your End of Year business obligations. I always strive to maintain accurate records and produce detailed reports that you and your business can rely on. Let me take care of your accounts; maximising your cash flow whilst minimising your bookkeeping expense, leaving you more time to work on what you love: your business.

Suppose you need to get your records up-to-date but can’t find the time? No problem. Are you considering transitioning to XeroMYOB, or Unleashed but unsure where to start? I can get you started and keep you running. Want to convert and migrate the data from an old system to a new platform? I can provide the advice, training, and support you need to help get you on track. No matter how complex or far behind, you may be, I can help.

Additionally, through my professional memberships, affiliations, and relationship with the Australian Taxation Office, I regularly attend workshops and seminars, so I can assure my technical knowledge and skills are relevant and current. Regardless of whom I deal with on your behalf, I am acutely aware of your privacy. I make it my priority never to pass or share your information onto a third party without your prior knowledge and consent. Most importantly, all of my services are accessible remotely at a time that is convenient for you.

I consider my services, flexibility, and practical experience make me the best at what I do. Why not try out my genuine, friendly, and honest approach to customers and service and contact me now to discuss your business.

VLJ Bookkeeping Testimonial
The work Vicki has done is invaluable. It has allowed me the freedom to “work ON my business, rather than IN it” not having to worry.
We have been delighted with Vicki's thoroughly professional approach to all aspects of the business since 2012. We previously had a family member doing our books, so it was with some trepidation that we searched for a replacement. Vicki was a standout amongst the applicants and we have not been disappointed with our choice. Vicki is very approachable and thorough, she takes time to explain important issues, and is proactive in suggesting better ways of getting the job done. We have no hesitation in recommending VLJ Bookkeeping to anyone looking for a first-class bookkeeping service.

FAQs

Got questions about VLJ Bookkeeping?

Here is a list of some of the frequently asked questions I often answer. Please feel free to contact me for any further info you may require.

I charge an hourly rate for all of VLJ Bookkeeping’s services. I can also provide a fixed fee estimate of how long a certain task will take, but from experience with my clients, I find in the long run it is fairer and more flexible for both parties to work to an hourly rate. All businesses experience peaks and troughs. The advantage of an hourly rate ensures that you only pay for the time spent and the service you have received, as opposed to a fixed fee payment option.

Bookkeepers and Accountants have different levels of responsibility. An Accountant specialises in the ‘big picture’ and is qualified to give advice on tax management and planning a financial infrastructure for a business. An Accountant will create reports from the Bookkeepers transaction and lodge forms with the Taxation Office. A Bookkeeper specialises in the ‘finer details’, dealing with the source documentation for your business such as; recording and categorising the day-to-day financial transactions of a business, producing reports for accountants, and the taxation office, and providing help to manage business cash flow. A Bookkeeper who is a registered BAS Agent is qualified to administer systems that fulfill a business’ BAS obligations.

Yes. I have chosen to focus on the day to day part of accounting in business, known as bookkeeping. An Accountant will prepare and lodge your Tax Return, however, the amount of time that your Accountant requires may reduce due to the level of detail your records are kept in when they are managed by a qualified Bookkeeper.
