Meet Raechel Salis. Not only will she get your business accounts in order, Raechel will also teach you how to set up good routines, double-check your data and point out areas where you can save money and precious time. Her specialty is working with start-up businesses and ‘rescue jobs’ – saving clients from bookkeeping disasters.
With more than 25 years’ experience in accounting, Raechel and her team at Salis Bookkeeping Solutions look after businesses south of Perth in the Success, Cockburn, Rockingham, Kwinana and Fremantle areas and cover a diverse range of industries such as engineering, health care, childcare and hospitality as well as settlement agencies, dog kennels and other businesses looking to succeed.
Raechel started working at 15 and soon discovered she enjoyed working with numbers and accounts. She wanted to know how the system worked and where the data went, so she completed certificates and training in bookkeeping as well as on-the-job experience. She spent 15 years working in her father’s engineering business, which gave her a good understanding of all aspects of business from an early age.
This mix of practical, real world training and study helped shape Raechel’s knowledge. The attention-to-detail approach and natural curiosity still applies today, with Raechel’s understanding the nuances of both large companies and small businesses. She’s also been involved with ASIC, ATO, GST and superannuation audits.
Starting her own business has been an opportunity for Raechel to share her knowledge and focus on helping other businesses grow and get ahead. Fitting into your current accounting system or advising you on a suitable one to use, Raechel can work with a range of accounting software and currently uses MYOB and Xero and the Pure Bookkeeping approach. She is a member of the Australian Bookkeepers Network and various local business networking groups.
She’s not just about bookkeeping – when Raechel’s not crunching numbers she’s spending time with her family, fishing or just relaxing on the boat at Mandurah.
Our bookkeepers are required to fulfil four standards – education, experience, testing & training;
