This Podcast Is Episode Number 0142 And It Will Be About Bookkeeper Training In The Art And Science Of Construction Accounting

Is Your Bookkeeper A Keeper? Do You Want To Keep Them For As Long As Possible? Do You Wish They Were Better At Construction Accounting?

  1. 50% of the problem is QuickBooks setup was done wrong and it causes you, the contractor, lots of pain and agony.
  2. 30% of the problem is knowing how transactions for your contracting company are different from regular bookkeeping.
  3. 20% of the problem is your Bookkeeper doesn't love solving puzzles and detective work; they are in the wrong profession.

You can fix the first two problems with some outside help from us and some proper training. The last one nobody can fix. The fact is you are paying dearly for their education to learn construction bookkeeping and accounting but you just don't know it.

You are paying with all of the mistakes that are being made, overpaying bills, taxes, payroll errors, unbilled work, late or misfiled Quarterly Tax Returns and more.
