Job estimate / quoting problem.

As a small business, are you being undercut by 'shonky' traders?

Handy hint below on how to deal with them

Job estimates take a lot of time to do.

It hurts to find out someone has won it on a ridiculously low price?

You couldn't even buy the materials for that price!

These 'Fly-by-nighters' will always try to undercut everyone else's price.

They do it often by failing to meet their responsibilities as an employer.


By underpaying workers and by wrongly insisting their workers work as

'contractors' not employees.The shonky employer then avoids paying overheads

like PAYG Withholding Tax, Superannuation contributions and workers compensation

cover for the workers.

That's not fair!

That's not a level playing field.

Any wonder they can charge less for their work!

These unscupulous businesses can be brought into line, if only honest business

people like you inform the ATO.

You are failing to win more quotes while ever these businesses continue to

undercut illegally.

Hi Paul,

I just wanted to say that I’m usually busy in my business and my inbox gets lots of ‘newsletters’ from people. I don’t have time to read them – I usually delete them.

But your reports are different. I was sceptical at first, but they put a smile on my face (we must have a similar sense of humour). I find myself stopping to read them, for two reasons:

1. You add a ‘human’ face to your reports; I identify with the stories you tell, to make your point, and 2. They always contain useful hints and tips I can use in my business.

I appreciate your generosity with your ideas.

If you are considering subscribing to Paul’s reports, Please don’t hesitate, just do it – it’ll put a smile on your face and dollars in your bank.
