Build to Thrive – Know Your Numbers

You have to keep a million different plates spinning at one time as a contractor trades or services business owner. A day in the life of an electrician, plumber, landscaper, pool service or commercial cleaning company is full of hard work, tight deadlines, unpredictable climate conditions, long payment cycles, cashflow fluctuations, and long hours…just to name a few.

But you know this all too well. Here’s how we help.

We know that many of the valued trades put in the hard yards when it comes to working in their business. You’re often left with very little time for the things you want and need to do as a result. Our goal is to act as your Accounting Guide. That means we’ll work alongside you to help you save time, reduce your stress and grow your business.

Every successful business requires a solid foundation, built on accurate bookkeeping and accounting.

At GeneralCents Accounting, our team specializes in managing your financial processes, so you know where your business stands at all times.

Release the cashflow squeeze

Running a contractor trades or services business typically goes hand-in-hand with cashflow issues. In fact, it’s the biggest problem faced by businesses across the world, and a common cause of business failure. The changing demand for your work, as well as seasonal trends, can cause your payments to look a little like a rollercoaster. It’s safe to say it can cause some pressure on the business and on you.

The nature of your business means it’s vital to manage cashflow tightly. Our Accounting Guides will help you implement smart cashflow management strategies that help you get paid faster, keep more money in the bank and stay on top of your goals.

Some of the ways we help

We have seen many issues faced by the contractor trades and services and have developed a particular expertise in helping navigate those issues. Often we find that they are struggling to keep money in the bank, have high levels of debt or make lower margins because the jobs or projects are not scheduled effectively. Another common source of pain is how to manage your contracted workers and purchases. We help you monitor and keep track of all this, ensuring you know which path is the most profitable for you.

Make more money

Once we have a solid accounting foundation in place, we can implement strategies to help you improve your business. We know that cashflow is a challenge for businesses across the world, which is why we love to help relieve the pressure of tight cashflow. We use smart cashflow strategies and assess your full sales process (conversions, the average price per sale, and the number of sales per customer), as well as suggest ways to improve your revenue process and profit margins. This helps to keep more money in your pocket, plus we can reduce your stress by implementing Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable processes.
