Work on your costs today, and benefit tomorrow.
Monday, May 04th, 2020
Before the pandemic of 2020, were you a profitable building firm? Or have you always known you could do better? This enforced slowdown-cum-shutdown could be viewed as an opportunity to regroup and re-start. And ‘knowing your costs’ is one of the goals in the HBXL Re-start Action Plan.
If all your jobs never quite make the money you’d hoped for, if you struggle to keep track of outgoings, then take the time to look at every aspect of your costs; all of them.
Some owners always run their businesses like they’re in a cashflow crisis. Increasing profit. Reducing costs. Getting better payment terms. Chasing down debt.
We can help with some of the financial points, and you’ll find tips, over three pages, on the following:
- Part I: How to reduce your overheads >>
- Part II: How to include all the costs in your estimates >>
- Part III: How to price for profit and not just to fill the diary >>
With a new plan for tackling finance and quoting for work, you’ll be better placed to win it.
