Handyman Services Have Unique Construction Bookkeeping Needs

  1. Not Just Any Bookkeeper Will Do - Too often Handyman Service contractors hire the wrong bookkeeper mistakenly believing all bookkeepers are the same. Nothing is further from the truth. Not all construction workers are the same. You would not hire a construction worker experienced in building high rise commercial buildings to be on your handyman service 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 on would be extremely expensive. For construction bookkeeping you need people trained in construction bookkeeping.

  2. QuickBooks Setup - Is the foundation of your Handyman Service construction bookkeeping system. You need the correct QuickBooks Version and our QuickBooks expert in bookkeeping for contractors can setup QuickBooks for your construction company. Because if the wrong foundation is put under your construction company and it will not matter who is doing the construction bookkeeping because it will always be a mess and you will never get the QuickBooks reports you need to operate and grow your construction company and get the most value from your board of advisors.

  3. You Need Reports - Because the truth about owning a construction company is you have to make decisions and you need good solid reliable financial reports, Profit and Loss, Balance Sheet, Job Costing, Job Profitability reports and most importantly the Five Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to help you make the best decisions.

  4. You Need To Get Paid - So our QuickBooks setup makes sending your customer's invoices and statements fast and easy no matter how you do it: Time and Material, Flat-Rate, Cost Plus, Not-To-Exceed, Underground, Rough-In, Trim, Milestones and several other methods.

  5. You Need To Track Job Deposits - Customer down payments can be input many different ways and there is one method that works best and helps you manage cash flow and it can save you money on taxes.

  6. You may need A Simple Invoice Template - You can use to get paid and then give it to your construction bookkeeper to put into QuickBooks and we have a FREE invoice template you can download here. You can preview a video of the FREE invoice template here

  7. You May Need A Simple Change Order Template - You can use to track change orders and get paid for them. We have a FREE change order form you can download here. And a FREE Video to see how it works!

  8. You May Need Complex - Invoice that no QuickBooks Setup can provide. These are commonly known Application for Payment or pay applications and G702 G703. The construction bookkeeping is done in QuickBooks and during the QuickBooks setup there are some special accounts and lists that we install ahead of time. These more complex invoices have the ability to keep track of multiple deposits, payments, change orders, payment history and running totals in a way that your customer can follow. We prepare these as part of our bookkeeping for contractors package and send them to you as often as you need them.
