Construction, Trades & Property

As specialist construction accountants in Carlow we provide a range of financial administration services and business advice to all kinds of building companies, contractors, subcontractors and tradespeople. We also support landlords and those who own rental property in Ireland.

If you’re a self-employed construction professional or run a construction company resident in Ireland you have to register for income tax (individuals) or corporation tax (companies) and submit a return each year. You may also have to register for VAT and submit regular VAT returns to Revenue, depending on your business’s turnover.

If you’ve got employees, you’ve also got payroll to administer, taking into account  pay-related social insurance (PRSI) and the universal social charge (USC).

As a contractor, you might also need to comply with rules around notifying Revenue. A ‘principal contractor’ has to let Revenue know when they enter into a contract within 21 days. They also have to submit information about payments to subcontractors through eRCT.

That’s on top of all the usual obligations of running a business, such as keeping accurate financial records.

The good news is that we can not only help with all of that but actually take it clean off your hands, freeing you up to do more of what helps your building business thrive and grow. We can also provide advice on managing your tax liability, management accounting reports to help you make confident decisions and long-term business planning.

“Our business has continued to grow since we started our business relationship with Munnelly Accountants. They offer an outstanding service to us and invaluable guidance on tax and payroll. In particular over the last couple of unsettling years Emma and Caroline have been tremendously helpful in helping steer our company in the right direction through these uncertain times.

We look forward to working with them in the future and would recommend them to anyone that requires a superior, professional, courteous and hardworking accountancy practice.”
