Delivering straight forward tax advice to our local tradies and apprentices

Top pain points for trades and services? Time, team and money!

You are the key person in your business – you started it and you run it.  But do you spend so much time working in your business, that you don’t have time to work on your business? Are you trying to invoice, collect money from customers, keep your staff going or hire new staff, all while quoting and keeping your work “funnel” filled? Is cashflow sometimes a problem?

We can help you manage the numbers, and free up your time so you can get back to working on and in your business. We have helped many trades and services businesses, including builders, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, boat builders, boilermakers, heavy equipment operators and mechanics.

As well as doing your BAS and income tax returns, we can help increase your profits, manage your cash flow and help secure the financial future for yourself and your family.

If you're just after some advice, you can pay for our services by the hour. Or if you need longer term accounting services, talk to us about a fixed fee package.

3 Ways To Do Your Tax Return

Are you an Apprentice?

Let us help you start with a strong financial foundation, that you can build on as you gain experience and grow your business.

You’ve landed yourself an Apprenticeship or Traineeship – now what?

Sure you may not be earning much money now, but a trade or service can be a pathway to setting yourself up for life. As an Apprentice, you’re gaining a recognised qualification, highly valued practical skills, all whilst enjoying the security of paid work.

We are often told by Apprentices and Trainees that they find it difficult to manage on the wages they are being paid whilst they are doing their training. You might have financial obligations and dependents that you need to support from your earnings. Setting up your tax and business the right way from the start can help ease your financial burdens.

Come and see us to set yourself up with a strong financial foundation that you can build on as you gain experience and grow your business. We offer reduced rates for Apprentices and Trainees.

Are you a Subcontractor or Independent Contractor?

Don’t let your subcontracting arrangements lead you into financial trouble.

Are you at the point in your career when you’re thinking of making the switch from being an employee to a Subcontractor? Are you already a Subbie or Independent Contractor?

Becoming a Subcontractor can definitely be financially rewarding, but it’s important to make the right decisions about:

  • What sort of business structure you should choose
  • How this will affect your tax affairs
  • How you will you cover your sick pay, holiday pay and superannuation contributions.

By neglecting your tax or super matters you could find yourself being hit with financial penalties from the Australian Taxation Office. Talk to us when you decide to make the switch to subcontracting, and we can help make sure the transition runs smoothly.
