Hi! My name is Mary. I'm currently focusing on helping small and medium size enterprises set up their company into Xero. Either you have a new organization or simply want to migrate data from an existing accounting software, I'll be happy to offer my services. I will also do the bookkeeping after set up. I have 14 years experience in all facets of accounting work. I know Peachtree, Quickbooks online and Xero. I was also a customer service and sales staff and a virtual assistant. As an accountant, my most recent employer let me handle a wide range of accounting tasks. Every day, I did the bank rec, sent out invoices to customers, monitored bills and paid suppliers online through Comm Biz. I did fortnightly payrolls, superannuation payments and remittances to the ATO (Australian Taxation Office). Having experience as an administrative officer, I pride myself of having a good command of business English. I wrote many types of business letters, company policies, contracts, and company procedures. I also love organizing. I find it very liberating to use web apps for managing online work. These include Salesforce, Asana, Zoho, Time Doctor, and the entire list of Google apps for business. I am very fortunate to have had very fun people to work with. As you may observe from my feed backs, I had very good relationships with my clients. Thank you so much for taking time to check out my profile and I’m looking forward to working with you.
