Handymen, and handywomen are like the all-rounder in the trades world, out there fixing any number of small issues homeowners face every day.
While handymen need to be versatile on the job there are some things that don’t really add a lot of value to their skillset or help generate new customers such as bookkeeping. Bookkeepers need to be just as versatile as handymen, dealing with business activity statements, TPAR reporting, payroll reporting, single touch payroll reporting and the list goes on for all the things the ATO wants from you.
Instead of being stuck behind the desk trying to work out what exactly the ATO wants for all of your obligations you could be out there getting new customers and building your business with a bookkeeper to help you.
Why An Experienced Bookkeeper is Handy
There are any number of talented and hardworking handymen out there, but only a handful of them go on to sustain thriving businesses. Most simply fall behind on the business end of things because they failed to anticipate just how much time and effort it takes to stay on top of their receipts, reconcile the bank statements and allocate billing for travel time between jobs.
Then there are all those penalties from filing a BAS with the wrong figures and possibly paying more than you should.
This is where Tradies Books comes in. Thanks to our experience in helping self-employed handymen with their bookkeeping and reporting compliance, you won’t have to second-guess your business figures.

Less Bookkeeping = More Time to Grow Your Business
