Construction Industry Scheme

At Neo Accounting, we provide accountancy services for tradesmen working across all industries, including plumbers, carpenters, plasterers, roofers, joiners, decorators, contractors, builders and electricians.

Accounts for tradesmen

If you’re a self-employed tradesman or a small business, you’ll know how hard it is to stay on top of your accounts. From client invoicing to receipts for materials purchased; it all needs recording accurately and in a way that allows you to check back on accounts at a moment’s notice.

However, finding the time to do this yourself is tough, and then knowing where to start is another story altogether. We have a lot of experience in working with self-employed tradesmen and small businesses just like you.

We work with construction tradesmen, such as carpenters, plumbers and electricians and have done for some time, meaning we know what difficulties that you face. Thanks to our experience of working as accountants for tradesmen, our services will help you keep control of your finances. We can help file tax returns, advise on a proper invoicing and receipting procedure, not to mention ensuring that any of your financial commitments to staff or suppliers are in check and taken care of.

We’ll get to know your business so that we understand your work and how best we can help. We have been accountants for tradesmen across the construction industry for many years, so you can rely on us to provide the high-quality service you need.

Perhaps most importantly of all, working with an accountant can help boost your bottom line while giving you complete transparency in your business.

How our accountancy service for tradesmen can help

We apply our experience when we work with every single new client. Some of the areas we know that others within the industry have struggled with include:

General bookkeeping service

We use professional accountancy software to make sure your business is running in a way that makes finances simple. No more stress about manual bookkeeping processes, which we know you probably don’t have the time for.

Tax returns

Perhaps the most fundamental part of any business is calculating those annual tax returns. What should you include, how do you calculate it and where do you pay it? All valid questions that we’ve heard before and ones which we will advise you on and take control of for you.


One thing that really tests the accountancy skills of every contractor is payroll. How do you do it, where do you file it and how should you set it up? What is the process for payroll? We can help organise and advise on all of this, letting you concentrate on the job at hand.

Value Added Tax (VAT)

What it means, how to calculate it and which VAT schemes you should be involved with. We take away any confusion or ambiguity you may have and make things crystal clear, taking your accounts over so that VAT never becomes an area for concern again.

Construction industry scheme (CIS)

This is the scheme in which HM Revenue and Customs require contractors to deduct money from subcontractors and pay it to them. Find it hard to understand? You won’t be the first. Whether you’re a contractor or a subcontractor, speak to us today and we will help you understand CIS.

Business Growth

A key part of acting as accountants for tradesmen or contractors is helping them to identify areas for business growth. This will come as a result of a new feeling of clarity on finances – if you know where your money is coming from and where it’s going to, and in what proportions, you will be in a stronger position to grow your business and take it to the next level.

Companies House

What are your financial obligations when it comes to Companies House? We will discuss this with you and make it all easy to understand.
