Accountant for Tradies | Bookkeeping & Tax for Tradies – Sky Accountants

Under tax laws, you might declare your staff to be a subcontractor but they could actually be considered as your employee. If you are a tradie who works as a subcontractor or a small business owner using subbies, you should know where you really stand.

If you are a tradie who’s working for yourself or you are employed doing private work as a sideline, you need to have an ABN and meet certain GST obligations. It would be risky to try to dodge the ATO. We can help you get set up so your business is compliant.

Our goal is to empower you to become a better, more finance-focused and well-rounded entrepreneur. Contact us at or 1300 328 855
