How TW Accounting can help with your construction accounting
Managing variable payrolls
Builders, electricians, plumbers, roofers – regardless of your trade, we understand that payroll in the construction and trades industry can get complex, especially when there are multiple contractors and sub-contractors involved. We’re there to eliminate discrepancies, keep payments on schedule and rates in line, so you can get on with the job.
Tax, BAS lodgements and everything in between

This is why many construction and trade businesses simply survive, not thrive. We not only take care of the routine acronyms, such as GST, BAS, PAYG and EOFY, we also take the time to implement smarter quoting and invoicing software, expense tracking and forecasting tools. We give you to tools to build a successful business.
Keeping track of costs
It’s time to clean out the glovebox of crumpled receipts for the very last time. We can set you up with a streamlined, cloud-based system for keeping track of all your outgoings. Without up-to-date financial records, it’s hard to make informed business decisions. We tailor accounting software and features to match your business and do the heavy lifting for you.

Getting the business structure right
Dealing with the elephants in the room: property accounting and GST
Before you roll out the blueprint, consider your own business structure. Is it working for you financially? We help you weight up the options, such as sole trader, company, partnership or trust. Our Gold Coast team are experienced in all aspects of business structuring, taking into consideration your need for flexibility, asset protection, easy access to capital and tax minimisation.
You purchase land or an existing property, you sell it for a neat profit – sounds relatively straight forward. But there are a number of elephants in the room that have the capacity to make or break a property development business. Dealing with GST, as well as differentiating between capital and revenue, are just a few of the intricacies that we love to help our clients navigate.
