Kelvin Deer, director of PT Partners Accountants and Business Advisors and the Australian Bookkeepers Network, notes that "some businesses simply don't want additional reports.

"We survey around 1,000 bookkeepers each year, and 13% of them still offer a manual bookkeeping system," said Deer. "Manual can be cheap, and easy to handle if the requirements are basic."
"But if you hand over a shoebox of records and expect your accountant to turn it into a pristine set of accounts, that could be an expensive exercise at $150 to $200 per hour," he warns.
Some businesses get by with a set of spreadsheets. "A lot of tradies, for example, don't use packages at all. It's a lot easier for them to type the information into a spreadsheet," says Deer.

"Think of a café or restaurant purchasing supplies from a supermarket," says Kelvin Deer.

Examples include software for manufacturing, retail, restaurant and catering, and construction. "I have a client that manufactures forklift components," he says.

Kelvin Deer also notes the tendency for bookkeepers to be aligned with one of the major software companies, but says the emergence of cloud-based systems means a growing number of bookkeepers are looking at a variety of software options in order to meet the needs of different types of client.
He also says that as bookkeepers are in frequent contact with their clients (perhaps on a monthly basis for data entry, or a weekly basis for payroll) they are starting to assist small business with regular reporting such as cash flow and quarterly analysis.
