Need a well-seasoned property accountant? We’re the team for you!


Being a construction business owner is hard enough without having to worry about bookkeeping on top of everything else. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to ensure that your books are always in order. Here are four tips for staying on top of your construction business’s bookkeeping:


  1. Keep track of your expenses.


One of the most important things you can do for your business’s bookkeeping is to keep track of your expenses. This may seem like a no-brainer, but many business owners don’t realize how important it is to keep track of every single penny their business spends. By tracking your expenses, you’ll be able to see where your money is going and make adjustments accordingly. The best way to track your expenses is to use accounting software such as QuickBooks or Xero.

2. Stay organized.

Another important tip for keeping on top of your construction business's bookkeeping is to stay organized. This means keeping all of your receipts and invoices in one place so that you can easily find them when you need them. A good way to stay organized is to create a folder for each month and store all of your documents for that month in that folder. You can also use accounting software to help you stay organized by categorizing your expenses and creating reports.

3. Hire a professional.

If you're really struggling to keep on top of your construction business's bookkeeping, then you may want to consider hiring a professional accountant or bookkeeper. While this will obviously cost you money, it may be worth it in the long run if it means that you'll be able to focus on running your business instead of worrying about your finances. You can find a reputable accountant or bookkeeper by asking for recommendations from other businesses in the construction industry or by searching online for reviews.

We’ll be with you every step of the way:

4. Use accounting software.

As we mentioned before, using accounting software such as QuickBooks or Xero can be a huge help when it comes to staying on top of your business's bookkeeping. Not only will accounting software help you keep track of your expenses, but it will also help you stay organized and produce financial reports. If you haven't already, we highly recommend that you invest in some good quality accounting software for your business—you won't regret it!
Staying on top of your construction business's bookkeeping doesn't have to be difficult—if you know what you're doing. By following the four tips above, you'll be well on your way to keeping your finances in order so that you can focus on what's really important: running your business! 。Do you have any other tips for staying on top of construction bookkeeping?

A great team - striking the right balance between professional, knowledgable accountants while being fun and personable to deal with. Always quick to respond. Harri has prepared my end of year statements and GST returns. I'm based in Auckland and have managed to snag a spot at the "co-working desk" in their office a couple of times while I'm down in Wellington.

These guys are not the typical accountants. We engaged with Outside originally for our small business accounting needs, but over the years they have provided invaluable services above and beyond. We have grown as a business and Outside worked alongside us the entire time, supporting us with expert and professional advice throughout our journey. They are an awesome bunch, so easy to get along with, they break everything down into regular speak and no question is too dumb to ask. Their door is always open, everyone is super welcoming and they make a mean coffee.
