construction accounting by Silicon Harbor Business Services

Contractors using Quickbooks must do this every week

Proper construction accounting is all about the details. The answers you need to operate and grow your company are in reports. Everything starts with cash because “cash is fact, profit is an opinion.” All transactions in the bank account of your Quickbooks construction accounting system must be assigned to the proper accounts:

  • Income
  • Job Deposits
  • Payroll
  • Taxes
  • Cost of Goods Sold (Direct and Indirect Costs including Labor, Material, Other and Subcontractors)
  • Other costs including permits, plans, bills from suppliers, and purchases on your personal credit cards
  • Overhead

Many small to medium-sized contractors fail to keep up with these basic tasks each week. The result is that job costing isn’t accurate or timely, and the business doesn’t make as much money as it should.
