As a plumbing business owner, you must spend plenty of time, money and effort winning businesses but are you operating a profitable business? You could be winning jobs but not charging enough to cover expenses. Your profits may also be too small to keep your business afloat.
Trade business accounting tips
Understand how you quote and your profitability especially if you are in the plumbing industry. You need to know your numbers, measure profit and loss, manage cash flow, identify your break-even point and know all financial aspects of the plumbing business.
You do not have to be an accountant but you need to ask your accountant the right questions. You are a business owner in the plumbing industry and not a plumber. A plumber’s weapons include a drill, hammer and wrench whereas a plumbing business owner has numbers to get the job going.
Ask yourself how much do you need to invoice so you don’t lose money. Is it worth running the business? Do you plan to make a profit and do you have a budget? Do you have a plan that you monitor regularly?
Focus on the numbers as a business owner to increase profit and manage your cash flow. If you know your numbers, accountability improves. Change your mindset from being a plumber to having a plumbing business and see how your business improves profits. Sky Accountants are trade accountants and tradie business consultants.
