Our work with the trades industry

AB Construction provides building and construction services across Melbourne and its surrounding suburbs. Turning over $290,000 in 2014, they needed help with high-level business planning as they entered their next phase of growth.

We met with them quarterly to discuss issues like costings, hourly rates and profitability – all of which enabled them to focus on selecting the right jobs that would improve profitability.

Frequently asked questions

How can I become more profitable?

You need to review your job costing to increase your income, as well as reducing your overheads through regular reviews of industry benchmarks. Quarterly reviews with your adviser will help you with this.

How can I cost my jobs right?

Catching up quarterly and reviewing the actual cost of the jobs just gone will provide an insight on what the actual cost of the job was, as opposed to what you thought the cost was. In many cases, tradespeople will under-quote their jobs because of a lack of insight into their actual costs.

How can I streamline my invoicing and quoting process?

By changing over to Xero, you can quote and invoice on a job and straight away. This is one of the easiest ways to streamline your processes and improve your time management.

How do I get my tax down?

The correct business structure ensures you are minimising your tax. Our accountants for tradies can also help you with tax planning as part of your long-term business plan.

Should I be taking on Employees or subcontractors?

To be able to answer this question you need to understand the true cost of employees when you factor in leave entitlements, penalty rates, and other employee entitlements.
