    Plumbing Contractors Have Unique Bookkeeping Needs

    Posted by Randal DeHart on Wed, Jul 18, 2012

    Plumbing Contractors Have Unique Bookkeeping Needs

    1. Not Just Any Bookkeeper Will Do - Too often plumbing contractors hire the wrong bookkeeper mistakenly believing all bookkeepers are the same. Nothing is further from the truth. Not all plumbers are the same. You would never hire a rough-in plumber with a background in new construction commercial work to be part of your residential remodeling crew because they are trained to rip and tear, yell, get aggressive and bully everyone and everything in their way. The resulting destruction to you, your crew, your company and the poor family whose home you are working would be extremely expensive. Construction bookkeeping you need people trained in construction bookkeeping.

    2. QuickBooks Setup - And choosing the correct QuickBooks Version is the most critical part of all because it is the foundation upon which your entire financial system is built. Put the wrong foundation under your business and it will not matter who is doing the bookkeeping because it will always be a mess and you will never get the reports you really need in order to operate and grow your business profitably. Your Board of Advisors and especially your banker will be unhappy; however, they may not say it outright, just that your loans, lines of credit and referral opportunities may be limited.

    3. Plumbing Contractors - Need people trained in construction bookkeeping not someone with experience in regular bookkeeping. The difference between a Professional Bookkeeping Service and a Cheap Bookkeeper can cost you tens of thousands of dollars a year or more on your bottom line profit.

    4. We Know What To Do - For bookkeeping and reports for you no matter how you charge: Time and Material, Flat-Rate, Cost Plus, Not-To-Exceed, Underground, Rough-In, Trim, Milestones and several other methods.

    5. We Understand Plumbing - Because we have owned and operated plumbing companies. Randal DeHart, our co-founder served a plumbing apprenticeship in the late 1970's and is still licensed as a Journeyman Plumber PL01 in Washington State. We not only talk the talk we walk the walk. We know exactly what challenges you face every day and we can be a valuable resource for you and your plumbing company.

    6. We Know How To - Do the bookkeeping and reports for you no matter how you charge: Time and Material, Flat-Rate, Cost Plus, Not-To-Exceed and several other methods.

    7. We Know How To - Do the bookkeeping and reports for you no matter how you pay your plumbers: Hourly, Commission, Percentage, Salary, Blended Salary and Commission, Prevailing Wage and more.

    8. Inventory Tracking - Can be a nightmare and we have a system for it.

    9. Job Deposits - Customer down payments can be input several ways. There is only one method that will help manage cash flow and save money on taxes and we know how to do it and track it for you in QuickBooks.

    10. Complex Invoicing - With multiple deposits, payments, change orders, payment history and running totals your customer can follow. We prepare these and send them to you as often as you need them.
