Our work in the building industry

Strategic accounting for AB Constructions

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.

As of 2021, they are turning over $5.3 million.

Frequently asked questions

How can I become more profitable?

Job costing reviews are one of the best ways to increase income. Additionally, targets and industry benchmark reviews can reduce your overheads. Our quarterly client reviews are designed to help you do both.

How can I streamline my invoicing and quoting process?

Software such as Xero is one of the easiest ways to streamline processes and improve time management, enabling you to quote and invoice on a job straight away.

Do I need to pay superannuation to contractors?

While this can be a grey area for trade business owners, in general if you hire a sub-contractor who has the same working characteristics as an employee, you would need to pay super.
