How your civil engineering business can benefit from outsourced accounting


For civil engineering consultants and company owners, being your own boss is highly rewarding. However, it comes with a lot of pressure and a LOT of paperwork. By hiring a professional accountant, you can avoid working every hour and burning yourself out.

Efficiency and cost management

You don’t need us to tell you that the construction industry is highly competitive and demanding. You have a lot of balls in the air, what with project planning, keeping clients happy, managing a team and staying on top of ever-growing costs. Margins are tight, and unexpected bills can make a project go from profit to loss in a flash. That’s why professional financial management is so valuable.


Compliance with CIS and other tax legislation can be unnerving if you are lacking in time or experience. A specialist accountant can make sure your financial records are accurate, up-to-date, and compliant with industry regulations. That’s a huge weight off of your mind as a self employed business owner.

The right limited company accountant for you may not be the same as the business next door, which is why it's important to do your research. Your budget is obviously a major factor, but be sure to look at reviews to gauge experience and a good quality of customer service.

At the end of the day, you're going to spend a lot of time talking to your accountant and will be sharing the most confidential information about your company with them. So it's important that you get on with them as well as have trust in their abilities!

At VW Taxation, we offer a friendly, personal service that our self-employed clients really value. We welcome drop-ins at our Portsmouth office, so feel free to pop in and introduce yourself for a chat.

Registering as a sole trader is simple, which is why it's an attractive option for many business owners. First, you need to create a Government Gateway account and fill in the necessary forms at You can then begin trading straight away.

Many sole traders choose to register their business as a limited company once it is well established and their income has grown. It often makes sense from a tax efficiency point of view, as Corporation Tax can offer a significant saving over Income Tax if your earnings fall into the higher-rate band.

The other main benefit of limited companies is that company directors gain limited liability status, meaning that their personal assets are protected if the business runs into financial difficulties.

For advice on whether to register as a limited company, please speak to VW Taxation.
