This depends on your personal situation and ownership structure – but we can offer suggestions tailored to your circumstances. For example, if you have a growing plumbing business, it may be worth considering holding equipment in a different structure, which can protect your assets if you experience financial or legal difficulty.
Software options depend on the type of work your plumbing business conducts. Some solutions are ideal for managing and tracking multiple jobs in the field, while others are better for managing larger project work. SimPro, Workflow Max and Tradify are all widely used, and we can advise you which is best for your needs.
Plumbers often need to decide whether to focus on winning maintenance work or securing project work with builders. Maintenance work is good for steady cashflow, while project work can be more risky, but often delivers higher margins.
A lack of insight into actual costs often causes tradespeople to underquote on jobs – so quarterly catch-ups and reviews can provide a valuable insight into real job costings, for more accurate ongoing quotes.
