ACCOUNTING FOR TRADES PEOPLE

Being in the trades or building industry you need an accountant who understands your business.

Here at Elevated Accounting we appreciate the unique nature of the trades including the importance of cash flow, quotes, invoicing, job costing and scheduling, progress payments, retention and variations, tracking project profits and paying sub-contractors. This is in addition to the usual small business compliance issues of GST, BAS, PAYG and Superannuation.

The long hours and physical demands associated with the trades often means accounting and taxation issues do not receive the attention they deserve. While GST, BAS and tax payments often represent some of the largest financial obligations for a business, most tradespeople fail to manage their tax appropriately. As a result we find many tradespeople pay too much tax, miss legislative obligations and expose themselves to substantial fines or interest penalties. Failing to adequately prepare for tax obligations can also play havoc with your business cash flow that is so important in the trades.
