We’ve got your back.
We are specialist accountants for contractors and we’re proud of our long history of working with both established and new construction businesses, large and small.
If the years have taught us anything, it’s that: business owners in this industry are extremely passionate and hardworking, they just need our help to grow their already successful business into one that is consistently profitable and funds the future that they want.
As we said, we’ve got your back. As construction accountants, we go beyond just compliance and telling you your numbers. We know the industry, we know your specific challenges, and we can give you the right advice and support to not only build the business that you want, but the future you want too.
The main challenges faced by our construction clients:
Can I afford the latest machine or do I need finance?
What do I have to do to comply with the Domestic Reverse Charge (2019)?
How do I take care of my workers (and manage contractor and subcontractor relationships) under the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)?
How can I improve my cash flow AND reduce corporation tax?
How can I build a business that provides for my family?
What are my funding options for growth?
How can I spend more time on the enjoyable parts of running my business (and less on the boring/financial stuff)?
How can I run my business more efficiently (and spend more time with my family)?
How can I run a profitable business with a small legacy to leave behind?
Case study: “They can now plan their cashflow with certainty”
One of our newest clients was using a mixture of old fashioned spreadsheets and Sage to run their business. The problem was, these two systems weren’t talking to each other resulting in it being difficult to undertake any meaningful planning.
After moving to us, we moved them fully to Quickbooks Online and provided an App to quickly capture receipts and expenses. The client estimates this change saved them several hours per month in the mundane bookkeeping they were doing themselves.
Once we had Quickbooks up to date (within our three month promise), the client now has monthly management accounts and can plan their cash flow with certainty. The first thing this did was reduce debtor days by some 15 days thus having an immediate positive impact for the client.
How we can help you
When we said we are accountants for contractors and construction businesses, we really meant it. We are investing in you and your business.
Construction accounting is complex, especially when you are running your own business and you have factors like the CIS on top of that. The good news is, however, is that you’ve already done the hardest part.
You’ve built your business from the ground up, so now let us help you grow it. We can help you look ahead and create a roadmap for success. Here’s how we do that.
We partner with you and talk your language
You won’t just hear from us once a year to file your year-end accounts; we are your partner. This means, working with you regularly to build your business and always being on hand to offer expert advice. Whether you need guidance or a full-blown growth strategy, we will always explain it in a way you’ll understand.
We take away the headaches that come with finances
You started your business to do what you love, not spend hours on your finances and endless paperwork. That’s our job. We help you stay compliant and away from HMRC, as well as giving you the figures and data insights to make sound business decisions. This means no more headaches and you have time to get back to what you do best.
We help you improve your cash flow
More cash means more security and peace of mind. Whether it’s cutting costs, increasing efficiency or being more tax-efficient, we can help you fund the lifestyle you want and prepare for any unexpected bumps in the road.
We help you work smarter (not harder)
Construction is a fluid and complex industry. To help you stay ahead of the curve, we’ll work with you to help you operate as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. For example, something as simple as cloud-accounting software means less time working and more time with your family.
We always keep your future goals in mind
We will always proactively help you achieve your business goals. Whether that’s building a profitable business that provides for your family now and in the future or scaling the business to leave a legacy behind, we can help you plot the right path to success.
Success doesn’t have to be complicated.
With the right support, success doesn’t have to be complicated, and that’s our aim when we work with our clients. We want to show you that you can be successful without being the business, you can take time to spend with your family, and you can scale profitably so that your future and that of your family is secure.
If you want to get the right work-life balance, grow your business, and have complete peace of mind with your finances, let’s have a conversation to discuss your needs.
