Accountants/Bookkeepers

Bookkeep Consulting

We help business owners who feel there is never quite enough money in the bank when they need it – and that it’s a scramble to find the finances to pay employees and bills on time.

They feel it’s a constant juggling act, and try and solve this by either not paying themselves or using their personal funds to cover costs.

They’re super busy on site – running around, checking on the guys and making sure the work gets done. They’ve got lots of work on – but where is all the money going? 

We help businesses currently stuck in this Negative Cash Flow Cycle. 

After working with us they have increased their wage by up to 80%, run ONLY profitable jobs – and don’t have to worry about money like they used to.

We work mainly with business owners struggling with cash flow and/or who are unsure what jobs are the most profitable, and which direction they should take the business for growth.

Many of our clients were in a situation where they could only take out a few $100’s here and there for personal expenses per week. They were working all day everyday with long hours, but still they weren’t seeing where the money was going.

We helped them reach their financial goals, by empowering them to know their numbers and build strong business foundations. 

We teach business owners lifetime skills to get, and keep their business on track financially, using our Trades Accelerator Program. 

This is a 6 week online coaching program, which can be completed any time using a combination of self study and financial coaching by our team (at a time that suits them).

This is what business owners learn:

  • How to form an accurate assessment of their business finances using cash flow planning – and diagnosing why their business has poor cash flow
  • Strategies to improve cash flow specifically for their business in the short and long term
  • What needs to be included in jobs costing and how to implement the right tech to ensure this is organised and efficient
  • How to read the data accumulated over the last few weeks to make the right business decisions for growth
  • How to create a profit plan working out exactly how your goals for the next 12 months will be achieved (down to how many jobs and at what price per week)

Securely The Tradies App

Securely! the Tradies app addresses a $20 billion national problem (in Australia alone) of tradespeople not being correctly paid for the work that they do.

Securely! aims to create an easy-to-use app that tradies and sub-contractors can use to protect their payments from consumers. As a result, Securely! the Tradies app, now protects Tradies and their customers through a secure payment gateway portal.  With Securely! tradies know they will get paid and customers know a job will get done properly.

Like Airbnb or Uber, Securely! is an easy to use app where Securely! is the trusted middleman. A tradie simply uploads their quote sheet and Securely! reaches out to the customer, holds the signed agreement, and the money until the job is completed. Upon completion of the job, the customer is then asked if they are satisfied with the job and if so, authorises payment release to the tradie.

Securely! the Tradies app is completely free for the tradie to register and use and there are absolutely no hidden costs.

Securely! the Tradies app is committed to fair play when it comes to helping a job get done properly and making sure that Tradies get paid on time, every time.

The board is made up of seven individuals who have experienced the problem of having to chase payments for a completed work and is fairly represented by both male and female members.

Business description

  • Eager to improve your cash flow and know your budgets?
  • Falling behind with your finances – with yet another overdue BAS?
  • Working way to hard – and missing out on important family events and milestones?

  • Over staff calling wondering which customer to see next?

But with support from the experienced Australian-based team at Pengwen Bookkeeping, you can ensure the financial side of your business is under control and your work-flow easily managed.

We are a ServiceM8 partner and certified in Xero, MYOB and QBO as one size does not fit all, we custom a package to suit your needs.
