    that is experienced. It is like the transaction register for a checking account, but it allocates income and expenses to various income and
    expense accounts instead of just tracking deposits and withdrawals.
    If your Micro Small Business Australia is ever audited by the
    ATO you will need to produce these Tax Invoices to verify the GST Credits you have claimed back in your BAS Statements.
    This can be achieved by the giving out bookkeeping franchise to a number of different people at different locations.
