Accounting and tax for Tradesmen in Dundee and surrounding areas

AFM Accounts for Tradesmen

AFM Accountants specialise in accounting and tax for tradesmen and contractors, whether you are self employed, in partnership or trade via a limited company.  We will help you maintain your accounts with expert knowledge, and straight talking practical advice.

As Finance Director of a large merchant business, I understand tradesmen have busy schedules; work long hours and have lots of quotes to prepare, so it is not surprising that sometimes the accounting and compliance take a back seat.

We do everything for you, whether you give us a box full of invoices and receipts, send us a spreadsheet or use cloud-based accounting software (free software available), we’ll file accounts, keep you up to date, ensure you are claiming the appropriate tax allowances as well as making sure your business is going in the right direction.

Whatever stage your business is at, whether you are just starting up and need advice on what to do (who to register with), or whether you are a more established business looking to change your accountants, we can help.

We prepare:

  1. Vat returns
  2. Annual accounts,
  3. Payroll
  4. CIS (Construction Industry Scheme) returns
  5. Self Assessment tax returns for tradesmen (electricians, plumbers, builders, joiners, roofers etc)
  6. Corporation tax returns
  7. Companies House documentation
  8. Deal with HMRC on your behalf

In short we understand that you are in business to make money; we can manage your accounting and tax for you; allowing you to focus on your business.

Thinking about starting up on your own, or just started trading?

We understand that making the transition from being an employee to being your own boss can be one of the most daunting processes in your life, but equally it is exciting at the same time.

Whilst you are an expert in your own trade, there are many different aspects to running a business which you need to be aware off.  With AFM as your professional accountants and business advisers, you can rest assured that we “have your back” whilst you focus on gaining customers, gaining business and generating revenues.
