For all your day-to-day accounting support, Liston Newton Advisory is at your service.
The most accurate means to calculate profitability is via timesheets. They enable you to determine if you're charging the right amount for work, and also identify whether you're over or under staffed. We use Workflow Max and Harvest, two excellent applications for job tracking.
Some of the main indicators you should keep track of are Gross Profit, Net Profit after Tax, Debtor Days (i.e how long it takes to get paid), staff billing capacity, number of proposals generated per month and number of proposals won.

In recent times there have been big developments in software enabling you to very easily track expenses and correctly allocate them to staff and/or clients. Applications like Receipt Bank, HubDoc and Expensify are some great options. The key is to select the one that best integrates with your existing processes and how you work.
