Tradies Accountant are proactive and always look for different ways to do things. We have changed from a family trust to a company which has made a great difference. We have also been able to save a heap on taxes and put more into our business. I would recommend them.

Leonard Archer

Fasteners Direct Pty Ltd

We cannot speak highly enough of everyone that we have spoken with at Tradies Accountants they have given excellent customer service, returned our calls and questions within 24 hours! We have made great decisions with Bryn after years of dissatisfaction with our previous accountants and changed from a family trust to a company which already in less than 12 months is making a huge difference. June has always been our dreaded month of anxiety because of news of the tax bill. This 2020 despite Covid-19, Kelly worked with us and provided reassurance, firstly with the tax planning, followed by inclusion and consultation of where we were financially. We were blown away with the tax savings we made this year! Kelly’s knowledge of what is happening in the world for Tradies meant all advice on tax planning was outstanding! Lacinda’s eagerness to help and Bryn’s quarterly reviews help us plan for retirement confidently. Highly recommend Tradies Accountant!

Bookkeeping for Tradies

The most important function in your trade business is your accounts and bookkeeping function. To enable you to focus on managing your business, you need to have adequate systems in place for bookkeeping. Too many business owners hire part time bookkeepers that do not have the sufficient experience or qualification to correctly set up this function. These are a few areas you should consider in regards to coding you business transactions:

Accounts Payable (Creditors) – You need to able to automate your accounts payable function so that your controller authorises payments . As a business owner you should not be paying a third party $70/hour to enter all your bills or have your account manager wasting valuable time completing data entry. This function should be processed for under $30/hour. This means as you grow, you will achieve significant savings allowing you to free up your administration time.

Payroll – This area can be complex. Completing and entering time sheets for each employee can waste valuable time for your account manager. You should be able to outsource or systematise this process which should be completed for under $30/hour.

Accounts Receivable (Debtors) – cashflow is the life blood of your business. Remember the saying: “Cash is King”. You need to make sure you have a process that will enable you to invoice and collect cash as soon as possible. You should focus on your cash conversion cycle – which is how long capital stays in your company. As a business owner, you should be aiming to keep the cost of this function down to a minimum.

Tradies Accountant can offer a solution for your business data and tailor the services to suit your business. We will help you design a new system for your trade business that changes the bookkeeping function and gives you and your team more time to focus on value added-services for your customers. The bookkeeping packages are offered at a fixed monthly price so you can budget for the expense.
