As a Virtual Assistant who runs a small business, you absolutely need to understand the law as it applies in this often misunderstood area.
We are excited to be joined by Peter Thorp, Director of the Australian Bookkeepers Network, for Part 2 of this special 2-part series as we discuss bookkeeping in detail and define the legalities and legislative issues we all need to be aware of!
