Skills4Life Pty Ltd

We are a family-run small business which is in the start up phase of producing books and videos designed to help people achieve their goals by providing timely information. The annual turnover is relatively small and currently we manage the operation by handing our receipts over to our accountants at the end of each financial year. As we are now tax residents in two countries with two different EOFY (30 June & 31 December), we need to reconcile our P&L and Balance sheet for all entities on a monthly basis. As some accounts (e.g.: credit cards) are for both personal and business use, this needs to be conducted in a single accounting instance. We have chosen Quickbooks in order to be able to manage each entity as a separate ‘Division’.

In terms of who we are we are Julian & Cate (husband & wife) and although Australian originally, we currently live in Spain. We are currently working on a book about how to increase your income on an ongoing basis. Future books will be about helping people with their health & longevity, personal finance and goal setting, as well as “things that we wish someone had told our younger selves”. If you would like to be part of that sort of a business and help it grow over the years, we would like to hear from you.

Thank you for taking the time to read this far.
