In 2006, Maria Landrelli and Ralph Rossteuscher co-founded Bookkeeping Biz in a Box to assist bookkeepers and financial accountants who wish to setup their own successful accounting and bookkeeping business.
They were confident that they could this, as they had been successful in building their own businesses which involved helping clients grow their businesses. Maria and Ralph have assisted 600+ businesses throughout Australia and New Zealand.
In 2012, Maria and Ralph realised that with the introduction of the Tax Agent Services Act 2009 that there were new barriers presenting themselves due to the legislative requirements of registration as a BAS Agent. These barriers prevented many accountants and bookkeepers from starting their own business as a BAS Agent.
