Dawn Hills - Owner Best Asset Bookkeeping

Dawn Hills holds a Certificate IV in Accounting and a BAS Agent licence. Her bookkeeping skills bring 20 years of experience in a vast number of different businesses. Best Asset Bookkeeping Services began in 2006 after working in various bookkeeping and office manager positions.

Her forte is tidying up the books and auditing the accounting file. A lot of businesses are flawed with GST errors. The worst case was a previous bookkeeper had never claimed the GST credit on insurance and Workcover for over 5 years. The most worrying thought for this business was their Accountant didn’t even pick this error up. This amounted to over thirty thousand dollars of unclaimed GST credits.

It is important for every business that you have experienced bookkeepers doing the books and ones that are trained. If you are using a contract bookkeeper and they are completing your BAS they need to be a registered BAS Agent.

Dawn is also a MYOB re-seller and offers one on one training in MYOB Accounting programs which is tailored to suit the business.

The business is based in Mission Beach, but operates from Cardwell to Innisfail.

Member Offer: Dawn is offering one hour free consultation for your business.

Kerryn Thompson - Branch Manager

Our Bank believes successful customers and successful communities create a successful bank - in that order.

As we work to provide banking products and services for our customers, we consider the bigger picture.

We think about what we can do beyond banking to help our customers and strengthen the community we all live in.  We've created a number of unique partnerships and services which enable us to do this.

First and foremost, we're a serious bank. But it's the time and effort our Bank spends innovating in the community that makes us unique and sets us apart.  It's why so many people choose to bank with us.

I have been employed by Bendigo and Adelaide bank for more than 20 years, working in many different roles including the branch network, Branch State Support area and Business Banking.  A few years ago I was tempted to apply for the role of Branch Manager at Mission Beach while working through another cold Melbourne winter. From there it started a chain of events and a journey which has led my husband and I to relocate to beautiful Mission Beach.
