Why does Trade Business Accountants exist?

To answer this question, let me first explain what we do…

Trade Business Accountants are a specialist accounting firm who work exclusively with trade and construction businesses throughout Australia, providing them with proactive and forward-thinking tax, accounting and bookkeeping services, all in one place, under one roof, in a seamless and headache free experience, like never before.

Our primary goal is to help our clients by handling everything financial, remove any confusion, stress or worry, and ultimately reduce their taxes, boost their profit, provide clarity on their numbers, save them time, energy, and money, and keep them compliant and protected.

And in this process, our clients start to not only earn more, but finally keep more of what they make.

How are we able to specialise in the trade?

Outside of accounting, bookkeeping, and finance, our team also have over 30+ years of experience across the electrical, air conditioning, civil, engineering design and construction, and property industries.

Advising trade businesses anywhere from start up to $400M in revenue, and even some of Australia's largest tier 1 builders, all in addition to successfully running our own 7 and 8-figure trade businesses across the Business to Government, Business to Business and Business to Consumer markets.

So, your industry is our industry, and we understand exactly how your finances need to be set up, structured, and managed – to win.

Now onto WHY we exist… and it’s a big one…

Trade businesses are the backbone of our nation.

From the houses that shelter us; the schools that educate us; the hospitals that care for us; the stadiums that entertain us; the roads that guide us; to the infrastructure that powers us – it’s all a direct result of the hardworking people within our industry.

But unfortunately, when it comes to accounting and bookkeeping, they’ve been left behind.

They stress and worry about their taxes… They don’t know where their money’s going… They have no real clarity on their numbers… They feel like they have nowhere to turn for practical advice that makes sense… And worst of all, their accountant doesn’t even care!

It’s the same story that we hear time and time again.

And now, our industry is suffering because of it.

In fact, construction accounts for nearly 25% of all Australian business insolvencies each year.

Which is 5 x higher than the national average of all other industries combined!

That's real businesses – real people – going under every single day.

And we’ve seen first-hand the damaging effects.

From the business owners to their employees, to their families; complete livelihoods are flipped upside down and torn apart.

This is why we exist.

Our mission is to provide proactive accounting, bookkeeping, and financial guidance, all year round, to arm contractors with the knowledge and confidence to make the right business decisions today, to ensure they’re here to build our tomorrow.

Because to us, accounting and bookkeeping is about more than just numbers, this is people’s lives, and we damn well care about them.

Now, unlike your typical accounting firm who are ‘too busy’ churning out tax returns to actually provide you with real advice and guidance throughout the year…

We’re a little different.

We handle your tax, accounting, and bookkeeping all under the one roof, providing you with proactive and expert financial guidance, all year round – to bring big firm experience and capability, that's usually unavailable to trade business owners, at a small firm price.

Because in the game of numbers… it’s speed, accuracy and experience, that counts.

So, what does this mean for you?

It means…

We make your financials immaculate.

We keep your bookkeeping and accounting accurate and up to date.

We create a proactive, forward thinking, tax plan to reduce your taxes.

We handle all your tax payments throughout the year.

We run all your accounting, payroll, and bookkeeping (so you don't have to!).

We keep you protected, compliant and help you avoid the ATO.

We provide you with year-round advice, guidance, and coaching.

We keep you stress and headache free!

So, if you like the idea of having a one stop shop for payroll, bookkeeping and taxes, and just having one team handle everything and actually be proactive with your tax planning, accounting, numbers, and your income…

This is where we specialise, this is how we help our clients, and this is how we can help you.
