After a hard day on the tools, it’s time to put up your feet and crack a cold one, not open your laptop and do some reconciliations. Which is fine, because we’re ready to nail those numbers for you, and make sure your business, whether you’re running an eco-friendly construction company or a team of electricians, is one you can build on.

Ready to find a way to build your finances? Let’s talk.

LEt's Talk

When you did your apprenticeship did they teach you about cloud accounting or calculating PAYG for your subcontractors? Didn’t think so. Building and construction are specialised industries, and so is accounting. That’s why we can relieve you of the burden of running the financial aspects of your business, leaving you with more time to strap on your tool belt and build dreams, both for yourself and your clients.

As accountants, bookkeepers and business advisors, we’re experts at recording and interpreting financial information, so we can take the pain away from the business side of your business, regardless of your specialist trade.

We get to know you, your business and your plans for the future, then we formulate new and better ways of doing things, specific to the way you work. You might find your new financial plan opens doors you once thought locked.

“Illumin8 practice what they preach. They're forward-thinking & engage with their clients.”

GOT 
QUESTIONS?

We're more than happy to help.

Do you provide support with applying for loans, funding or grants?

Got growth plans that need funding? Most grants and all banks are going to want to see accurate financial records and reports before dropping that sweet cashola into your account. Our team of experts can provide you with guidance to access grants and loans and help you achieve your goals faster.

Can you set-up or help streamline my accounting and finance processes?

We’ve got our heads in the cloud — in a good way. Using a cloud accounting program and other technology – like adding Stripe so clients can pay your invoices using their credit card – can streamline business processes and drive efficiency. Imagine not spending hours scanning receipts or typing up invoices because those processes are now on autopilot. We’re all about helping you work smarter, not harder.

Do you provide support with cash flow, budgeting and forecasting?

Body: Sorry if it seems as though we’re talking a foreign language, but they’re words and phrases important to every SMB. Making sure you’re invoicing a decent amount of money each month is important, but you also need to think about cash flow, budgeting and forecasting. Because revenue means nothing if you’re underquoting or your customers aren’t paying on time. Money flowing into your business makes life easier and allows you to plan further ahead. We can help you with all of that.

I need expert advice about business planning, can you help?

We can provide you with strategic business advice to help you make the most of the present and plan for the future. That could involve putting together a five-year plan for your business with goals and milestones or workshopping how you can bring on employees or subcontractors while still being profitable, plus a whole lot of other stuff in between.

Can you help with managing company finances?

You’re a genius when it comes to solving problems on the site, but feel overwhelmed when the numbers move from measurements to dollar signs. If you’re still managing your accounts in a notebook or spreadsheet, it’s time to talk to an accountant who can help you streamline the management of your finances with access-anywhere technology. Yep. Say hello to cloud accounting, which brings accurate business metrics to your fingertips, anytime and anywhere.

Do you help with tax compliance and reporting?

If you tend to leave all the thinking about your tax until the end of the financial year and avoid calls with the ATO, you’re not the only one. Without the help of an accountant, tax specialist or bookkeeper it’s easy to become confused by what is required to remain compliant and keep your numbers in the black. As small business tax and accounting specialists, it’s our job to maintain records and reporting and keep you compliant. We’re here to bring you peace of mind when it comes to record keeping and financial reporting, so you can get back to keep building your business.

Why choose Illumin8 for your trades or construction business?
