Our work in the cabinet making industry

Strategic accounting for Cumming Brothers

Cumming Brothers are bespoke cabinet makers and joinery experts based in Melbourne.

With ambitious plans to grow their business, they were looking for a more proactive accountant and advisory firm to help them scale their business to the next level.

We helped with a restructure that better suited their situation – and we also took over their bookkeeping and payroll functions, so the owners could focus on delivering great products and service, rather than worrying about admin.

We also developed financial goals, profit targets and key performance indicators for the financial year, backed by quarterly catch ups to check on progress and set new goals.

Frequently asked questions

Can I deduct new equipment purchases for tax purposes?

If your item is under $30,000 you can reduce your overall taxable income by deducting the whole amount in one financial year. If over $30,000, you can depreciate the asset and claim it over a number of years – for example by deducting 15% in the first year of use, and then 30% for each year following.

I've hired an apprentice – what do I need to know?

Ensure you choose the right award/agreement for your apprentice, and decide whether to offer full time or part time status. Also keep good records and produce accurate pay slips. Remember to cover your apprentice under your workcover policy.

How can I streamline my invoicing and quoting process?

Change to Xero and you'll be able to quote and invoice on a job straight away. It's also one of the easiest ways to streamline processes and track time, costs and overall profitability.
