Investing in accountants for plumbers may not be the first thing you think of when planning out your plumbing business. Given how busy your daily life is as a small business owner, it’s not surprising that you have yet to determine whether you need the help of chartered certified accountants.

You are likely more concerned about generating business, keeping your customers happy, investing in advertising and marketing, and ensuring your van and equipment and supplies are stocked up. You may even be thinking that you could use one of the leading accounting software platforms available to save a bit of money hiring accountants for plumbers.

Accountants For Plumbers

Have You Considered Hiring Accountants for Plumbers Today?

Even if you use one of the leading accounting software applications, though, you are still going to lose out on the experience, ability, and support of a team of accounting technicians who live and breathe business finances.

Rather than seeing your accounting as an obstacle that prevents you from doing what you do best or something that you can wing, it’s time better to see it as a crucial part of running a small business. Too many small businesses make that same mistake and do not give it the importance it deserves.

If you want to save time and money, that you can spend more wisely growing your business as a plumbing sole trader or small business owner, then you should speak to Tax Bite Accountants today for expert advice and unlimited support provided by a friendly team with over a decade of experience between them.

Why Hire Chartered Certified Accountants for Plumbers?

Accounting for any small business can be challenging and we have found that this is especially true when it comes to a plumbing business. Given we have over a decade of experience serving as accountants for plumbers up and down the country, we feel we are in the best position to make that claim. There is more to the work of qualified accountants than just bookkeeping, though that is a vital part.

You may feel that surely hiring any accountant would be worthwhile instead of a firm or individual with specific experience in dealing with the accounts and books of plumbers. While a more generally qualified accountant will be able to manage light and basic tasks like bookkeeping, they will lack the industry specifics of what you need as a plumber.

That’s what you get when you choose accountants for plumbers like those that work for us here at Tax Bite. Our accountancy specialists can help you with everything, including the CIS or Construction Industry Scheme (introduced and assessed by HMRC), tax responsibilities, IR35, expenses, invoicing, chasing up payments from clients and so much more.

As part of our commitment to supplying the best quality of service possible, we use some of the best online accounting software available to make things easier and digital.

Another way we like to explain why you should choose a specialist accountant that knows your specific industry is by taking the example of plumbers. You wouldn’t hire plumbers to fix the electrics on your property. Although both electricians and plumbers work in the same industry and are categorised as tradespeople, they are completely different disciplines. Similarly, you wouldn’t want a surgeon who specialises in hearts performing surgery on your brain.

That’s why, for your plumbing business, you should look to accountants with expertise and experience working with plumbers. At Tax Bite, we have over a decade worth of experience and are truly passionate about the work we do. To find out more, we encourage you to contact us and have a chat with one of our team today.

Why Hire Tax Bite Qualified Accountants for Your Plumbing Business?

We’ve considered why you should hire an accountant and why it should be a dedicated accountant with experience particularly in accounting for plumbers. Now, though, you may still be wondering why you should hire Tax Bite specifically. After all, several firms and individuals are operating as accountants for plumbers today, all claiming to be the best at what they do.

Rather than pass a comment on our competitors we wanted to show why we believe our accounting services designed for plumbers are the most affordable and offer the best value. There are several reasons why we feel this way.

Assigned Your Dedicated Accountant

While there are many accountants out there, what you find with most is that they only offer general accounting services. Even if they have any specialist experience in collaborating with plumbers, the services they tend to offer are provided by an alternating range of different accountants. This can be frustrating as it means you must deal with a different accountant every time you call them or need advice or support. You then may have to give background on your business to bring them up to speed.

One of the things that separate us from many of the other accounting firms out there right now is the fact that we offer a dedicated accountant service. This means that from the time when you invest in our accounting services, you will be assigned your dedicated accountant. It doesn’t matter if you are contacting us for simple bookkeeping, business taxes advice and support, help with tax relief and expenses, tax returns, payroll, VAT, invoicing or anything else, they will give you the help you need.

Advice and Support to Help Make Your Plumbing Business More Tax Efficient

Regardless of whether your plumbing business is new and small or a larger one you have been running for some time, it will go through many changes and face many challenges. As you progress and have a larger number of customers and more business, your taxes will naturally rise. Business taxes can be as complicated as it is expensive.

That’s why you need the help, advice and support of one of our tax specialist accountants. The online accountant you are assigned will help manage your books and look at your business finances and offer suggestions as to how you can change your tax position, claim back expenses and determine what you can qualify for in the way of tax relief.

Online Accounting Software Support

Many things have been digitised in the last couple of decades, even business accounting. At Tax Bite Accountants, we can help you with all your digital accounting needs. Whether you have used a specific accounting software platform before or are completely new, we have experienced and certified expertise in many of the biggest names in the industry, including:

Along with the fact that many accounting firms do not assign you your dedicated accountant, there are some out there that run less than fir businesses. Too often we hear stories about plumbers and other individuals who have been tripped up by unscrupulous business practices. Fortunately, it is not all accounting firms, but some are not clear about their prices. There are often discrepancies with the quote their clients agree with and sign up for, and what they must pay.

Many add hidden surcharges and extra fees that are not discussed at the time of signing the contract. If you choose to hire Tax Bite, we can guarantee you will not have that experience. Any quotes we give you and the price of services outlined in our contracts will be what you are expected to pay. We will not overcharge or add anything to the bill unexpectedly.

We believe in offering a “pay for the services used” approach. Therefore, if you ever want to upgrade or scale up your package, you can, and your bill will be adjusted appropriately. We will never charge you for services you do not use.

Advice and Support When You Need It

As a busy company ourselves, we know extremely well that something always comes up about accounting. Even if it is out with the services, you hire us for, we are still here to help. We also appreciate that problems and issues do not come up on a nice and convenient schedule, they can occur anytime.

That is why, we encourage you to contact us as and when issues arise, so we can help to resolve them. Whatever help you need, your dedicated online accountant here at Tax Bite is just at the other end of the phone or can be reached via email too.

They are there to give you help with all kinds of accounting such as bookkeeping, tax returns, tax planning, VAT registration, and so much more.

Deadline Reminders

It can be a very costly mistake to miss important deadlines for tax returns and tax bills to HMRC and if you are operating as a limited company, Companies House. As well as costing you money, and giving you trouble from the taxman, it will also make things harder for you and more stressful. Especially when you have a lot of paperwork naturally related to your work and the jobs you perform for customers.

At Tax Bite, our accountants can help prevent any of that from happening though. We can set up automated tax returns and payment reminders for you, to make sure you are always handing in the right things at the right time. If you seek our assistance with filing your tax returns as well, we can take care of that side of things too.

For more information about the help and support we can offer you, please contact our team here at Tax Bite today, either by phone, email or using the contact form.

Our Plumbing Accounting Services

We do hope you will choose Tax Bite as the accounting firm for your plumbing business. Having professionals on your side who know what they are doing when it comes to business finances and taxes, makes life a whole lot easier for you. Gives you more time to spend on your business, growing it and making it the best plumbing business possible.

We have a wide range of accounting services we offer all our clients who either run one-man-band businesses as plumbers or who run larger firms. Consider some of the following services we offer below.

Bookkeeping

This, along with tax-related services, is the one service most associated with accountants. While it’s true that we offer a lot more than just bookkeeping here at Tax Bite, we understand the importance of having accurate and up-to-date books. Even if this is the only service you are looking for from our team, your business will still be a lot better off, in our humble opinion. We will make sure that both your monthly and end-of-year books are filed correctly and accurately, and that all the crucial documentation and information needed for HMRC is accounted for.

Good bookkeeping does more than just keep you right with the tax man, though. When your books are in good order, you can better see the aspects and areas of your business that need to be improved and where your business is thriving.

If you are interested in hiring professional accountants, that are skilled in bookkeeping among other services, speak to one of our team today here at Tax Bite for a free consultation to get the ball rolling.

Payroll and CIS

One aspect of your business that you may not at once associate with accounting firms like Tax Bite is payroll. It is usually left to, at least in part, the Human Resources department, if you have one. However, what if you do not have that big an operation or even just a sole trader plumber?

You may want to consider hiring Tax Bite to handle your payroll needs for you. There are a few benefits to this. Namely, you get access to the help and qualified support of a team that understands what is involved with the accounts of tradespeople and industry-specific things like CIS, otherwise known as the Construction Industry Scheme.

Either way, if you hire Tax Bite, you will get the help you need. If you just need help dealing with CIS, we can provide that, but if you have more than just you on the payroll, we can do more. We can help with calculating employee salaries, making sure they are processed properly and sent on time, payslips for evidence, RTI and any pension contribution.

As with any of the services we offer our clients, we can tailor them to your business and needs specifically. We will work out the best approach to all things payroll and CIS for you. It doesn’t matter whether you need payroll processed weekly, fortnightly or even monthly, we can help and we can send those payslips to your employees directly, so you don’t need to worry about them and also confirm the tax liabilities and payments you owe.

Self-Assessment Tax Returns

One of the most important parts of accounting for plumbers or sole trader businesses is self-assessment tax returns. These may appear to be easy enough for just about anyone to fill out. However, because they are legal documents and are sent directly to HMRC, the slightest errors in them could cause you a lot of stress, hassle and money. Regardless of how simple your business taxes are, therefore, it might be a good idea to look to a professional accountant like one at Tax Bite to handle the filing and submitting of your self-assessment tax returns.

As well as helping with the completing of the tax return, we will also make sure no deadlines are missed and no penalties are charged.

Claiming Business Expenses

When you are filing and submitting a tax return, one is that you should always pay close attention to and so many businesses get wrong, is the part where you can cite and claim back on expenses. Rather than only vaguely knowing what you should or shouldn’t claim or just assuming or even guessing, at Tax Bite, we can help you understand what you can claim back. We will take an in-depth look at your business expenses and identify the things you are spending on for the business that you could save money on your tax bill.

While it may not be exhaustive, the following list should give you a good idea before we speak to you and look at your business accounts, and what expenses you could claim for tax relief.

By approaching our team here at Tax Bite, you will be assigned your very own accountant who will deal exclusively with your business. They will help you to gain the highest amount of tax relief possible every year.

Cashflow Forecasts

Cash flow is crucial when you are running your own business, as it ensures you can stay operational from one day to the next. Even in those times when you are not getting as much business and contracts are you would quite like. Cashflow budgeting and forecasts are two parts of accounting that can help to ensure you always have the funds available.

As it’s your own business, you are free to do what you want with it, and you may feel you should oversee this yourself. However, think about how much time you could save if you are not. By hiring a professional accountant from Tax Bite, you are getting the help and services of an expert who knows all about creating manageable budgets and using cash flow forecasting effectively.

They can help you to have a plan in place and actions that can be taken when there are those dips in income. You can prepare more easily for those times because they are likely to be less of a shock and even if they are unexpected, you will still have money in the bank to keep you going.

Credit Control

Credit control is another aspect of business accounting that is related to cash flow. As a plumber, primarily, you are interested in supplying the best service for your clients and conducting work for them to ensure they are fully satisfied. One aspect of the job that you probably don’t enjoy much is chasing after unpaid invoices. There are many reasons why customers do not always pay their bills on time. Some may have their financial issues, while some may be just trying to avoid paying.

Either way, when you are running a busy plumbing company, the last thing you want to do is spend too much time chasing after those payments. That’s why you should consider hiring one of our qualified and certified accountants at Tax Bite. They will be able to take care of everything related to invoices and customer payments for you. They have the experience and expertise to process incoming funds and can even oversee debt management and recovery when that is necessary.

Testimonials

“When I first started working as a self-employed plumber, I tried to take care of all the responsibilities myself. That meant everything related to the financial side of the business, including tax and filing a self-assessment tax return every year. I thought I would save money when it became clear, that I needed to save time. That’s when I looked at chartered accountants and Tax Bite stood out from the crowd. They had the experience, and expertise and were friendly and did not patronise me or use jargon. I am better able to dedicate my time and energy more fully to the plumbing aspect of the business. Thank you!”

Joshua

“I had only recently qualified in the field and was trying to set up myself as a self-employed plumber. I realised early on that if I was going to make a success of the business, I needed to focus on what I did best – working on plumbing jobs. That meant finding a suitably qualified and experienced accounting firm to take care of the financial side of the company. After much deliberation and speaking to several different firms, I was happy to go ahead with hiring Tax Bite and I am so glad I did. They know what is involved in working with contractors and self-employed plumbers, so I never felt like I was speaking a foreign language when speaking about industry-related issues. They also spoke in plain English, rather than using a lot of jargon. The advice and support I received with everything were a real lifesaver”

Jack

“I had been working as a plumber for some time for another company and decided to go it alone. All I knew was how to do what I do – plumbing. The rest was a bit of a confusing mystery to me. That’s why I knew I needed the help of an accountant. Tax Bite were chosen in the end because they had a friendly team that knew what they were talking about. They had worked in the construction industry and with tradespeople like plumbers before, so I knew they would understand the financial side of my business. I get help with bookkeeping, paying taxes, advice when I need it when planning and so much more. I can’t recommend them enough”
