I’m the leading accountant and bookkeeper for electricians, plumbers and builders (tradies) because I understand the tradie business – I’m married to sparky. I know the tax deductions and automation tools to use, and I understand the electrical, plumbing and building businesses as an industry. We started our business in 1998, going from a sole trader to a company, and have gone from there. I also didn’t know what to ask at the time, so my accounting practice is based on letting you know what you need to know, not waiting for the question you don’t know to ask.
I help a select number of Tradies who love what they do, want their weekends back and to be able to go on holidays. You often feel bogged down by admin, GST, tax, and cashflow (where has that money gone???). You’re interested in being more streamlined and for things to be easier, taking away the stress and freeing up time and money to do what you want (including reinvesting in the business) – ie do the work, invoice the client and put your feet up.
With our own business I have navigated the challenges that come specifically with a tradie business, what makes them tick and their particular nuances. I love helping my clients get organised and enjoying what they do and life in general again.
Tax and accounting are my passion – and rugby… and red wine… and chocolate (who doesn’t love chocolate!). I only work with a select number to be able to achieve the results they want to achieve, whilst giving personalised and individualised service.
