Accounting for Building and Construction

Darnells clients span almost every aspect of building, construction and property development. We look after the financial well being of companies and individuals engaged in groundworks, property conversions, new build commercial or domestic properties and building services. The breadth of this experience ensures that you get the best and most appropriate advice on issues such as the construction Industry Scheme (CIS),  auto enrolment and tax efficiency.

Advice and support takes account of all relevant circumstances, which could include business ownership, family circumstances, long-term plans for retirement or inheritance, and the ambitions you have for your business.

In addition to bookkeeping, payroll and routine accountancy services we help construction businesses with the following:

Cash flow Management

Our financial modelling tools will help you predict how planned projects and possible external events (such as changes to the living wage and auto enrolment) will affect your cash flow and borrowing needs. Detailed management accounts and regular forward-looking reviews ensure that key aspects of your finances are closely monitored and controlled. We’re also happy to negotiate with your bank to ensure that you get the best value overdraft facilities.

Tax Planning

Your most appropriate and efficient tax arrangement could depend on many business, personal and family factors. Each situation and solution is unique and we aim to take in the complete picture of all relevant circumstances to minimise your tax liabilities in the short and long term.

Auto Enrolment

Depending on your needs we offer everything from an advisory service to setting up and administering pension deductions via payroll. We can also take care of staff briefings to ensure that your communications comply with legal requirements.

Company Structure

Darnells specialists will advise you on the most appropriate company structure. This could depend on ownership, family circumstances, retirement plans or even the cash flow implications of reclaiming CIS deductions.

Construction Industry Scheme (CIS)

Whether you are a contractor or subcontractor our detailed understanding of the Construction Industry Scheme will ensure that you are always fully compliant with HMRC regulations.

Find out if you’re paying more tax than you need to, or whether your management accounts are telling you everything you need to know.
