Questions & Answers
Q: Would you recommend using Bas-i.c for a small company? Only 3 employees with 1 main income stream.
A: It is really designed for sole trader style businesses reporting on a cash basis and does not include specific payg functions for employees.. so it is not really suited to company accounts.
Q: I need to re-create our floor duty schedule, but the software won't allow me to make any changes.
A: Input cells are not protected and are the only cells that should be changed for the software to function correctly. Allother cells contain formula. Input your roster setting/constraints as per the Help file instructions at https://bizpep.com/shiftscheduler.html and then Build a Roster to automatically create a roster based on your settings.
Q: Another year having passed with the use of your excellent software, thank you. Now I have forgotten how to start another year. Please tell me where to find out how to start a new year.
A: To change the start date it is set on the Income sheet (Cell B5) this is passed to all other sheets. See the help file https://bizpep.com/basbusinessaccounts.html for details.You can start again with a completely new set up reopening the packaged excel file or redownloading from https://bizpep.com/basbusinessaccounts.html (you will need to reinput your registration details). Alternatively if you want to maintain your account structure and set up simply select the blue cells with values under the Revenue/Expense Received/Paid column for each month and delete values by pressing your delete key (you can do the same for the Accounts and Comments columns if you want). Only select / delete blue cells other cells may contain formula and deleting them may prevent the software from working.
Q: I am after a simple system that will create a category for each expense, add up the category total and give me a result. I also want a system that will transfer the purchases listed on my bank statements directly to the program so I don't have to transfer them manually Does your system do both these?
A: Yes you can set up required accounts, import bank csv files and allocate them to an account see http://bas-i.com.au/accounttransactions.html for more info.
Q: I am in the process of preparing my tax info for my accountant. I was wondering how I get my information onto a USB or whatever it is I need to do?
A: The most common method is simply select the required Full Year (FY) and then Summary View and from the Summary Controls Print either as a hard copy or pdf to your usb. You can also do the same for BAS View. This should provide all you need.
