Accounting software. Just for the UK building industry.

No standard accounting package deals specifically with the unique requirements of the UK's building industry. And when they do, they’re additional modules and spreadsheets. That’s why our partner’s Construction Industry Accounts (CIA) package is so popular. It’s just for builders - and everything you need is built-in. Who wouldn’t want an efficient and accurate way to financially control all stages of their building project?

Want your invoicing simplified,
accurate and tailored to your business?

SPEND LESS TIME ON INVOICING AND ACCOUNTS

Put the details in once and the software automatically updates all necessary components. And because it’s designed for construction, the VAT, CIS etc. are all dealt with at the same time.

BE KEPT UP TO DATE WITH LEGISLATION CHANGES

The software’s compatible with ‘Make Tax Digital’, a mandatory requirement for VAT registered businesses. And we’ll keep your software updated with any changes to VAT, PAYE, CIS scheme…

KNOW HOW YOUR JOB IS PROGRESSING

We know it’s the jobs that make or lose your business money, not the accounts. You need to be able to see up-to-date information instantly. And you can. It’s the software’s most popular feature.

MAKE SUBCONTRACTOR ACCOUNTS HEADACHE-FREE

The CIS module automatically calculates and deducts tax, submits the monthly return to HMRC, emails statements to the subcontractors and tells you what tax is due to be paid to the HMRC.

REDUCE THE CHANCES OF GOING OVER BUDGET

CIA puts you in total control. If there’s any chance of potential problems or over-runs the software will help you spot it. And if you do have to go over budget, you can make allowances.

STAY ON TOP OF STAGE PAYMENTS AND RETENTIONS

Building projects are not easy to manage financially, especially with more than one on the go. You really need to stay in control of various dates for invoicing. CIA has got your back.

All-in-one accounting software. Everything you need in one place.

CIA is NOT a generic accounting package. It has everything a builder would want, all in one place. CIS, Job Costing, Retentions, Subcontractors accounting, Applications (Stage Payments) and Certifications - they’re all in there as standard. Oh yes, and as legislation changes, so does the software. Life has just got easier.
