Being in the trades or building industry you need an accountant who understands your business.
Here at Clare & Associates we appreciate the unique nature of the trades. The long hours and physical demands associated with the trades often means accounting and taxation issues don't receive the attention they deserve. While GST, PAYE and tax payments often represent some of the largest financial obligations for a business often trades people find themselves too busy and fail to manage their tax appropriately. As a result we find many trades people pay too much tax, miss filing obligations and expose themselves to substantial interest and penalties. Failing to adequately prepare for tax obligations can also play havoc with your business cash flow that is so important in the trades.
Just like your trade, we recognise the need to deliver timely, quality advice and services. Our approach is personal and you will enjoy support, guidance and accessibility together with cost effective strategies and solutions.
Trades people are one of our specialist client groups and you can benefit from our experience. We will provide you with a customised accounting and taxation package to meet your needs. We have a comprehensive booklet 'Starting a Small Business' which is a valuable resource available to our clients and explores all the key issues such as alternative business structures, GST and tax registrations, record keeping, how to price your work, employing staff and understanding the importance of cash flow.
