Why construction businesses need industry expertise

Accurate, insightful financial reporting helps business owners make better decisions

Standard accounting services are much simpler because in most cases the business is a fixed environment. They have sales, cost of goods, expenses and from there they can easily calculate a breakeven point.

With construction accounting job costs may include packing and unpacking materials, traveling, warehousing, subcontracting labor and much more.

On top of the mobile (non-fixed) nature of construction work, sales can have multiple categories within it. Cost of goods includes direct and indirect costs, with a multitude of categories within each. An item that may be a straightforward expense for a regular business could qualify as ‘cost of goods sold’ in the context of construction work.

Calculating the breakeven point is much more complicated in construction because so much of the work is completely custom. Instead of a basic profit and loss report for a company, you need job costing and job profitability reports for each project.
