If you are a business owner in the construction industry, you’ve probably heard some of these phrases:

“You need a strong balance sheet.”

“What is your working capital?”

“Why are you under-billed on this job?”

“Why are you under-allocating costs?”

“Cash is King!”

These phrases are incredibly common in the construction industry. It’s no secret that this industry is faced with unique reporting and tax related issues, especially right now with new revenue recognition standards, lease standards, and tax law reform.

Most contractors understand that they have to manage job costs effectively to have positive profit margins, but what are “real” job costs? An in-depth understanding of job costs provides a contractor with the tools he needs to successfully bid jobs, manage those jobs, and complete them with positive margins. The GMP Construction Team can assist contractors with getting control of their costs and understanding how they factor into the work-in- progress schedule.
