Dear Kelly

Letter of engagement

I offer my skill set and experience for the Part time position as a Bookkeeper at Smart Bookkeeping in Sydney. This letter will give a brief summary of my experience and the details about the position.

Scope of work

Bookkeepers are useful in every company, no matter what size the company is. Book keeping is a requirement of the law and can be quite time consuming. Bookkeepers are becoming more and more useful to companies, as time is becoming less available.

  • Sorting Cash payments
  • Invoices – check for the validity and schedule of the invoices
  • Payment to suppliers

  • Hours of Work

  • Payment Details

  • I will be paid fortnightly. My rate is $45 per hour.
  • My employer will also make superannuation payments to comply with the Superannuation Guarantee Act of 1992.
  • The Remuneration will be reviewed every years and it is possible that it can be increased.
  • Obligations as an employee

    This is a requirement of the law and if I have been caught handing other people confidential information, there will be legal consequences.

    If you have any more requests or questions, you will be able to contact me on 0405060708.

    If you wish to accept the details which have been mentions in this letter of engagement, please sign this letter, with a date and return a photocopy of this letter to me by 25/4/13.

    Yours Sincerely,

    I, ________________________, have read and understand all the information in this letter of engagement for employment, and accept all the terms and conditions set out in this letter.

    SIGNED: __________________________________________ DATE:___/____/____

    PRINT NAME: ________________________________________________________


    The benefits of providing this letter to clients are that both parties understand the terms and conditions and have hard copies of the agreements. This gives both parties a good opportunity of knowing what each party expects and what each party will do for each other. Without this letter of engagement, both parties do not know what to expect and both parties will not have the security that is needed to trust clients.

    One of the party members may act in a way that will be advantageous to them and disadvantageous to the other. Having this agreement, breaking it will result in a breakage of the law.

  • Disadvantages
