Team member in the spotlight: Antonette van der Berg

Team member in the spotlight

In this series we’re spotlighting a different MWM team member each month, so you can get to know the team a little better.

Say hello to Bookkeeper, Antonette van der Berg.

“Modern. Dynamic. Innovative. These are the three words I would use to best describe MWM Advisory. At MWM we focus on providing the best service to our clients, working closely together as a team to produce the best outcomes.”

Tell us a bit about your role.

I’m part of the Data Analytics (DA) team responsible for bookkeeping tasks including but not limited to data entry, payroll and superannuation compliance as well as Business Activity Statements, (BAS). 

What is the most challenging aspect of your job?

It can be a bit challenging to plan the preparation and lodgement of BAS for various clients in a timely manner, while following up on queries and attending to other bookkeeping tasks at the same time.

We have a great team though, who support each other and always care about the best outcome for our clients.

What inspires you?

I draw inspiration from the people I surround myself with. 

What tv show are you watching at the moment and why do you like it?

I enjoy watching The Office with my daughter as nothing works faster to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh.

What’s something that people might not know about you?

Although I am usually a very analytical and detailed person, I love being creative too, especially with flow art and photography.

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is …

Appreciate what matters most in life. 

What do you enjoy the most about working at MWM?

The great people and the way MWM embrace new technology to improve productivity and processes.

Celebrate the End of Financial Year with your team and ours

Celebrate the End of Financial Year with your team and ours

The End of Financial Year (EOFY) is upon us. For business owners, like you and I, there are many moving parts to be aware of. There are yearly financial statements to create, taxes to pay, deductions to claim, and documentation to submit to the ATO.

30 June is coming – what’s your game plan?

30 June is coming – what’s your game plan?

End of Financial Year Tax Planning. While Covid-19 and the uncertain business landscape it created made planning difficult, what we can say with certainty at MWM is that in our experience those who had a plan have navigated the past two years more successfully than those who didn’t.
