How Can I Protect My Building & Construction Business?

Take a look at our video on how to protect your construction business. This video includes the seven actions all construction business owners need to take to protect businesses.  These steps include;

1) Cash flow management — monitor the cash, give your business time to grow.

2) Pricing & contracts — price right and make sure you understand all the terms of your contract.

3) Quality & reputation — excellence in everything you do.

4) Your team and management style — don’t be dictatorial, get your team right.

5) Your business structure — set up more than one company and ring-fence, high-risk activities

6) Growing too fast — don’t take on too much work, get the financing right.

7) Good record-keeping — keep the records straight to avoid problems with HMRC.


The four main takeaways from this video are;

  1. Build a great legal structure.
  2. Avoid giving customers too much credit and monitor customer credit rating.
  3. Keep your books in order.
  4. Don’t run before you can walk! Be cautious with spending and keep checking cash flow.
