Clients In Construction

I Count Beans has experience working with large companies in the construction industry such as the leading Solar Company in Southeast QLD, SAE Group. We have had the pleasure of working with SAE Group team since 2014 and one of the directors of I Count Beans Tony Mann started out as the Financial Controller for SAE Group prior to starting I Count Beans. We are therefore very experienced in looking after all types of electrical contracting clients.

Construction is an ever-changing industry.

I Count Beans always keeps up to date with the latest laws, industry licenses and taxes that change constantly. Let us keep all your finances in order so you can focus on building your business!

We have many years of experience in helping contractors plan for unknown change, navigate unknown accounting requirements, and handle extreme swings in cash flow that come from a project’s evolution. Contact us today to see how we can help your business!

We understand that clients in the construction industry may not have the time or practical situation to be able to read long emails or complicated documents. Therefore, we work with clients to simplify their job workflows and internal processes so that they can focus on their trade, and we can look after all the paperwork. We understand that the construction industry is heavily regulated and in Queensland, some clients need to adhere to complex QBCC requirements. So rather than trying to manage this themselves, our clients benefit from having us look after all their lodgements and reporting requirements in a streamlined and effective manner.

"We've been using I Count Beans for some time now. Michael, Tony and their team are very professional, super responsive to our requests, focus on client satisfaction, easy to work with and really know their stuff! Communication is clear, simple and concise. They have saved us money and help alleviate the needless anxiety that comes with bookkeeping and taxation. This allows us to focus more fully on our company and what we enjoy doing. We cannot recommend the team highly enough!"

"Can't believe the bookkeeping system they have developed. I only wish I found them earlier when I started my business. They are constantly involved in my business and I don't have to worry about how my business is going and trying to do my accounts myself late at night. All I need to is take a picture of an invoice and they take care of the rest, and they have my my weekly payroll a breeze...."
"Friendly service and knowledgeable staff I would recommend these guys to anyone that needs help with taxes, or XERO set up. Now I don't have to worry about bookkeeping or end of year tax they handle it all."

We have been working with Anthony Axisa from Axisa Logistics Pty Ltd since 2014. When we first started working together, he had piles of paperwork that he used to collect and drop off to a bookkeeper once a quarter. He also had problems with cash flow because he was invoicing late and not having time to chase up customers who owed money. Therefore, we got Anthony onto XERO and we took over managing all the business invoicing and debtor collection. This saw an immediate improvement in cash flow and helped him in securing some larger Government Work because of having a professional team behind him to manage their stringent reporting requirements. We also implemented DEXT app which he and his drivers used to take photos of all their receipts so that we could easily track the expenses. We also implemented online physical payments of expense with NAB so that our team could login in and pay his staff and supplier accounts with our third-party authority access. All in all, Anthony Axisa now has a full team behind him so he has been able to grow his trucking fleet from one small tip truck in 2014 to now 4 Semi Trailers delivering the largest water delivery service in Ballina.

I Count Beans has been working in partnership with InStyle Electrical since 2014. We have been able to grow with James and his team from a small electrical contracting business with 2 staff members in 2017, to now the business having 20 plus staff members and undergoing major construction project in South East Queensland including several Gold Coast high-rise projects. We help the business manage their individual job costing using XERO and track organisational budgets using XERO’s budget manager.
