Onlinetradesmen.ie Survey identifies threat of black market for tradesmen

Onlinetradesmen.ie, Ireland’s largest network of qualified trade professionals, today released survey results on the outlook of the Irish trade sector in 2011. Based upon replies from over 6,400 tradesmen and builders nationwide, the results reveal an increase in black market activity within the home improvement sector as a main challenge for registered trade professionals hoping to stay in business during 2011.

84% of all tradesmen and builders indicated that an increased demand from property owners for ‘nixers’ or ‘cash only’ prices for their home improvement projects were making the sector difficult for compliant and registered trade professionals. Of those surveyed, 13% expect to go out of business during 2011. 

“These results simply confirm what we have seen on the ground in recent times within the sector as a whole“comments Ted Laverty, Managing Director of Onlinetradesmen.ie. “While our members are winning more business than most, tradesmen throughout the sector are reporting an increase in the number of property owners requesting ‘cash only’ prices for their home improvement projects. This is fuelling the black economy. Registered trade professionals with overheads such as insurance VAT and taxes are struggling to compete with non-compliant operators. This situation will result in more businesses failing within the sector in 2011 and the government needs to tackle it quickly.”

Onlinetradesmen.ie advises customers that hiring tradesmen on a ‘cash only’ and ‘low cost’ basis can cause problems down the line.

“Where VAT is not paid on a home improvement project, it can be difficult to claim against a builder or tradesman if their workmanship fails down the line. Going down the nixer route often results in poor workmanship and the use of low grade materials. We would strongly urge property owners to look at the long term picture when undertaking home improvement projects” comments Laverty.

Very shocking to read that the Onlinetradesmen.ie Survey identifies threat of black market for tradesmen. This will create troubles in country's economy and the rate of the dollar. Hope they would be able to find those who are behind such criminal activities. Thanks.

I have heard some rumors related to Onlinetradesmen.ie, Ireland’s largest network of qualified trade professionals. I hope that the issue can be solved simply before making it as a huge one. So I am expecting that from the responsible authority! <a href=""></a>

Cash only services will continue to increase as people begin to lose more of their jobs and are forced to deal with spreading the little money they have as far as possible.

By Garage Door Repair in Orange County @ Tuesday, December 13, 2016 5:55 AM
Just like what the person said above, we believe that a problem will definitely arise as more people lose their jobs.

By Orange County Garage Door Repair @ Tuesday, December 13, 2016 5:56 AM
It is going to be a struggle for those that really need to have a thriving business who do not know how to sell themselves, because there will be many more "cash only" deals floating around.

By Wine Tour Paso Robles @ Tuesday, December 13, 2016 5:58 AM
With the new technology coming up, it may be possible to offer a price point that is reasonable, considering that much overhead work can be cut down b/c of internet.

By Limos in Bakersfield @ Tuesday, December 13, 2016 5:59 AM
We wonder how things will turn out if this keeps going. It seems that the weak ones will be weeded out.

By Party Bus to Wendover @ Tuesday, December 13, 2016 6:01 AM
Just like the others said, it will definitely be an adventure for established providers to beat the "cash only" providers.

I know this topic is a bit old, but would like to share my bad experience with www.onlinetradesmen.ie. I found a builder through them to lay the drive and he made a mess which he refused to fix. I left negative feedback on the builder`s page, but it was removed by onlinetradesmen.ie. If you use them, do not go by feedback as they delete bad reviews.

By emoji meaning @ Saturday, August 19, 2017 10:49 PM
In the last 7 years, we have seen a lot of creative usage of the emoji - words and syllables substitutes, word plays and emotional accents. All this awaken the nostalgia from children’s magazines with picture-puzzle rebuses, so we were wondering about how many words can be actually represented by emoji? That’s how we started creating the first version of the Emoji Thesaurus.
