Busi­ness so­lu­tions to suit ev­ery­one

Whitsunday Times - - BETTER BUSINESS / WHITSUNDAY BUSINESS -

WHILE ev­ery­one else was en­joy­ing a re­lax­ing break over the new year pe­riod, mother and daugh­ter team Julie Roberts and Rachel Cooper were busy mov­ing their busi­ness Book­keep­ing and Tax­a­tion So­lu­tions to a new lo­ca­tion in the main street of Air­lie Beach.

Their busi­ness had out­grown its for­mer lo­ca­tion on Water­son Way and Rachel said the move was a “new year, new shop, new start.”

Julie started the busi­ness 25 years ago. It was called Coopers Cler­i­cal and Sec­re­tar­ial and op­er­ated from home.

The busi­ness was re­named Book­keep­ing So­lu­tions when daugh­ter Rachel came on­board as a part­ner af­ter com­plet­ing her ac­count­ing de­gree and seven years work­ing full­time for an ac­count­ing firm in Toowoomba, with a fo­cus on self-man­aged su­per funds. The pair then pro­ceeded to build the busi­ness into what it is today.

The busi­ness, now known as Book­keep­ing and Tax­a­tion So­lu­tions keeps both part­ners very busy, which suits them be­cause the new of­fice lo­ca­tion on Air­lie’s main street, above Domino’s pizza, has enough room for them to in­crease their client base, work in pri­vacy and pro­vide a cen­tral­ized, ac­ces­si­ble lo­ca­tion.

The mother and daugh­ter team boast clients from across the coun­try and abroad, and they at­tribute this to their com­mit­ment to cus­tomer ser­vice and the wide va­ri­ety of ser­vices they of­fer.

“When clients leave town they con­tinue to use us via mod­ern tech­nol­ogy. Ba­si­cally they’re just very happy with our ser­vices,” Julie said.

They of­fer busi­ness so­lu­tions rang­ing from ad­min ser­vices, to book­keep­ing and ac­count­ing ser­vices for both busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als, in­clud­ing busi­ness man­age­ment and struc­ture, su­per­an­nu­a­tion, GST, BAS and tax re­turns.

Ac­count­ing ex­per­tise is not the only trait that runs in the fam­ily. Both ladies share a pas­sion for gar­den­ing, and spend many hours nur­tur­ing their green thumbs. In ad­di­tion to this, Rachel has two chil­dren and is in her se­cond year study­ing for her CPA.

FAM­ILY FO­CUS: Mother and daugh­ter team, Julie Roberts and Rachel Cooper, are ex­cited about the move to their new lo­ca­tion in Air­lie's main street.
