Tradies And Bookkeeping Enter The Stress Zone

You work hard all day. Let’s face it: being a tradesperson is not the easiest job in the world. It’s physically demanding and you have to possess amazing communication skills to help you negotiate with your clients, subbies and suppliers.

THEN you are lucky enough to go home and have to do your books, chase your outstanding invoices, pay suppliers, create quotes, work out your orders and plan the work schedule for yourself and your team.

How are you supposed to get it all done?

It’s no wonder so many tradespeople are late with their BAS or tax payments. How many times have you been penalized because you’ve missed the tax deadline?

Managing your books is hard work when you are tired and stressed. Hunting for receipts, matching them to expenditure, tracking invoices and payments – it’s the last thing you want to do when you get home after a hard day at work.

Struggling with the administration of their business often sends people into overload. They enter the stress zone and suddenly find themselves taking it out on the family and people around them.

Stress is dangerous in any field of work but even more so for tradies.

• You can lose customers because you aren’t as patient as you should be
• You can make mistakes in your measuring or ordering
• You can misjudge things or choose the wrong equipment for the job
• You put your team at risk of on-the-job accidents
• You put yourself at risk of on-the-job accidents
