Trucking and transport is a highly competitive business. It doesn’t matter how big or small your fleet is – we understand the logistics, detail and data needed to be successful in this challenging industry. Our experience, practical and efficient systems will help provide timely information to help guide your business in the right direction.

Our Expertise in Your Industry

Having an accountant who understands the mechanics of the road freight industry is important. Over the years we have attracted a number of trucking and transport clients who all have to deal with the usual small business compliance issues. However, we believe these business owners want more than just tax compliance service, which is why we offer advice regarding cash flow management, liaising with bankers to ensure seasonal facilities are funded and financial planning. We have mentored transport businesses through the various stages of their business life cycle from start-up right through to sale and we are able to offer you experience, technical tax knowledge and most importantly, an intimate understanding of your industry.

Vehicle Financing Advice

We will offer you advice on how best to finance your prime mover, truck or trailer and make sure you understand the different tax implications of a lease compared to a HP. We can also provide appropriate assistance and proactive advice in respect of accounting issues and tax planning, no matter how long you have been operating.
