Bookkeeping for Painting Companies

When it comes to keeping your books in order, hiring a professional bookkeeper will save you a lot of time. With fluctuating demand and projects based on seasonal and weather changes, outsourcing your bookkeeping services will give you that extra time you need to focus on meeting deadlines and client expectations.

Bookkeepers take care of your billing and invoicing, and other tasks such as your financial statements and expense overviews. As we work in the industry, we are aware of the relevant tax liabilities so we can advise on equipment, vehicle, and paint supplies deductions that are available to reduce these liability costs. Our team will also make sure your books adhere to the relevant licensing requirements and regulations to ensure total compliance throughout your business.

How much do bookkeeping services cost?

How does a bookkeeper help my business?

If you do not have accurate, up to date, easily accessible and understandable data on your business performance, running and growing a business is difficult. We help solve that problem.

What software do I need to get started?


What is job costing and why is it important for home service businesses?

Job costing is the process of figuring out an income statement / profit and loss statement for each customer and or each job. This enables you to know where you are profitable and where you are not, which guides your decisions around improving margins and profitability. It is important because if you do not do this you have no idea where you are making the most profits and why that might be. You have no idea on how to get more profit because you do not know how you are getting it now.

How does Dialed in Bookkeeping help with job costing?

We do it for you. The sorting of the transactions, implementation of required software tools to help out, maintenance of all systems - it’s a pain to do yourself.We have done this for years, keep up to date on best practices, and implement these systems into your business with you faster and cheaper than you would do on your own.

What monthly reports do I get?

None! Our reports are live and updated daily directly from Quickbooks. Why wait a month to get accurate information? That’s too long.

I currently manually keep my books, can you help with the setup of bookkeeping software?


What metrics do you provide to help me run my home service business?

Cash collected, invoices sent, average job size, customer acquisition cost, customer life time value, net income as a percentage of sales…..and many more. We can also create custom data points if you desire that on certain plans.

Do I need an accountant if I work with a bookkeeper?

Absolutely, they are two completely different sets of expertise.

Being a business owner is busy enough. I was wearing so many hats before I hired DialedIn. With bookkeeping off my plate, It’s freed up my time to focus more on what I do best in the business.

Hire them immediately. They can do bookkeeping better, faster, and cheaper than you can. If you’re a tradesman like me and you work on contract, every minute not spent in the shop or on site is money lost.
