Plumbing is one of the many specialized service industries that are always in high demand, both in the residential and commercial realms. Being that that is the case, plumbers are busy and plumbing companies have to work extra hard to make sure expenses, mileage, and the organization of payments and cash flow are logged and processed properly. The more time is spent on the organization of the business upfront, the easier it is to complete the needed documents when it comes time for taxes! With the help of Gulfstream Bookkeeping, plumbing businesses can receive support in any of the following areas:
Creating and keeping accurate books that reflect up to date expenditures
Payroll services & payroll data
Plumbing is a service industry and, as such, has many components to bookkeeping that are necessary for the successful operation of the business. For plumbing companies, the organization of sales, parts expenses, and labour expenses must be at the forefront of creating a balance sheet that is tailored to the company. As businesses grow, so does the need for accurate recording of employee hours and mileage. One or two plumbers is quite manageable to keep up with, but much more and an owner may get behind rather quickly. Having a bookkeeper ready to support your business means your ledgers will be complete with all financials organized and accounted for. Employee paychecks will accurately reflect hours, tax deductions, and pay. Purchase records are kept up to date and all trade payables and bank loans are managed

One of the main undiscussed expenses in any industry centres around employee retention. Hiring and training an employee takes time and money. One of the main reasons plumbers list for leaving a job is paychecks not being accurate. Bookkeepers help keep payroll on point, reducing employee frustration. Another major expense in the plumbing industry is outstanding, or past-due, balances. It is important to know which clients are behind in paying your company and develop a plan to address how to get them to pay. Plumbing work requires tools, materials, and the time of the skilled worker! Tracey will let you know what client accounts may need to be reevaluated or addressed.
Aside from simply saving the time and energy of inputting the numbers into a spreadsheet yourself, why should you hire a bookkeeper? It is important to understand that bookkeeping services are more than simply entering numbers into a spreadsheet! That in and of itself does take time away from the owner, but hiring a bookkeeper will save you in so many ways outside of simply keeping an up to date ledger. Business owners wear a lot of hats! A typical day for the owner of a plumbing company would have many of us ready to leap out of our skin! Owners are human! Hiring professionals to assist with the financial aspects of a business allows the owner(s) to step back and refocus the core business. Tax documents are ready for submission, rather than hiring an accountant to organize everything, and financial surprises are kept at a minimum. Additionally, more time is freed up to spend with family and focus on what you love to do! From payroll to notary services, bookkeepers help smooth out all of a business's financial aspects, leaving more time for the growth and development of a company.
