Why Construction Accounting is Different?

Accounting for the building and construction industry goes well beyond tax basics. There is the matter of constantly changing industry regulations to comply with – and the complexities of employing staff. A builder’s payroll can easily change on a weekly basis as contractors come and go. When you add long hours, physical demands and the stress inherent to the construction category into the mix – it’s easy to understand why bookkeeping and accounting goes on the backburner.

Chris Wilson



With my years of experience, I have acted as an adviser, strategist, negotiator and counsellor to hundreds of business owners. Over this period, I have gained a wealth of knowledge about what makes businesses and their owners tick. I am passionate about understanding the key drivers of business performance and helping business owners achieve their full potential.

My business life has taken me through all sorts of structures including private business partnerships and executive roles in listed public companies. More recently, I established Wilson Pateras in conjunction with Nick Pateras. We recognised a gap in the market place for a more personalised approach to servicing clients needs.

The world is constantly changing which creates new challenges for business owners. In these times Wilson Pateras remains a constant to help guide our clients towards future success.
