Construction and Contractors - Pain Points

R & D Brochure​

Construction companies are often required to develop a bespoke solution using a unique combination of different techniques and materials. Where solutions are created which are unique or not readily known to experts in the industry, qualifying R&D is likely to be taking place.

While HMRC statistics show many industries in the UK are waking up to the benefits of R&D tax credits, the potential is far greater in the construction industry.

Management Accounts Pack

It is important for businesses that are growing, or at a size where control is required to be up to date with both your business performance and the financial position your business is in.  We have created a Management Accounts Demo pack which allows you to explore the level of reporting we can provide.

Budgeting and Reporting

 Every organisation should plan ahead to ensure success but daily business pressures often conspire to delay the strategic planning process. Supported with the correct construction accounting software, we can provide monthly or quarterly reporting packs tailored to your business which will keep you on track. Subsequently this will allow you to see if a project is still feasible or if project costs are running out of control before it’s too late, or if you have any bad payers which are holding up funds.

“As a fast-paced business with year-on-year growth, it is sometimes easy to overlook or take financials for granted as to good and bad payers, payment terms and how this has positive and adverse effects on overall business financials. Onyx have helped centralise this info which has enabled us as a business, to make informed decisions on which clients to grow with, continue with or cease trading with based on their track record.”
