Our work with electricians

Strategic accounting for electrician Dave Thomas

Dave wanted to modernise his business processes for greater efficiency – so we helped him to transition from spreadsheets to Xero.

Dave is now able to create professional quotes on his iPhone to send to clients immediately after visiting. Once accepted, Dave can then link the quote to an invoice, ready to send once work has been completed.

As a sole trader, this has not only freed up valuable hours of admin and transformed some of Dave's core work processes, but the speedier processing and payment times have also dramatically improved his cashflow.

Frequently asked questions

How can I improve my cashflow?

One golden rule is to always invoice on time – ideally by streamlining your quoting & invoicing process using online accounting software.

Once a job is complete, you'll then be able to invoice immediately so that payments reach your bank account more quickly.

If you're doing larger project work, you could also request a deposit, and also introduce progress billing.

How can I reduce my year-end tax?

Good tax planning is key. Consider pre-paying expenses, for instance by purchasing equipment and materials before the end of one financial year for use in the next.

You could also make full use of your $30,000 instant asset write-off – for example by purchasing a van or piece of equipment under $30,000 and then deducting the amount from this year's taxable income.

Should I take on employees or sub-contractors?

This very much depends on the true cost of potential employees when you factor in leave entitlements, penalty rates and other employee entitlements. Every situation is different and we can advise whether you would be better suited to one or the other option based on your circumstances.
