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 construction accounting system no matter if it is QuickBooks or Xero, must be assigned to the proper accounts:
These tasks form the solid foundation of your small business. As a small business owner, you have more important things to do than to keep your own books. We take care of your books for you, so you can get back to the job of running your business and generating profits.
1. Bank Reconciliation
Reconciling your business checking account each month allows us to keep your bank account, accounting, and taxes up-to-date. Having us reconcile your account each month allows you to:
2. Generate An Income Statement
income statement, otherwise known as a profit and loss statement,
basically adds an itemized list of all your revenues and subtracts
an itemized list of all your expenses to come up with a profit or
loss for the period.
An income statement allows you to:
3. Generate A Balance Sheet
balance sheet gives you a snapshot of your business' financial
condition at a specific moment in time.
A balance sheet helps you:
Balance sheets, along with income statements, are
the most essential elements in providing financial reporting to
potential lenders such as banks, investors, and vendors who are
considering how much credit to grant you.
4. Ledger Clean Up
The general ledger is the core of your company's financial records. These records constitute the central "books" of your system. Since every transaction flows through the general ledger, a problem with your general ledger throws off all your books.
Having us review your general ledger system each month allows us to hunt down any discrepancies such as double billings or any unrecorded payments. Then we'll fix the inconsistencies, so your books are always accurate and kept in tip-top shape.
Regular communication with your accountant ensures your issues and concerns are addressed. We are always available to spend time with you, so you fully understand how to interpret and utilize the financial information we provide. It is important you work with someone who has been where you are now and understand the accounting process and business challenges of a construction company owner.
Construction accounting tells you what is working and what you should do more of to make more money. Keep in mind, when your bookkeeper takes shortcuts in the data entry, for example entering bulk numbers from credit statements for expenses in bulk instead of entering each transaction - your Financial and Job Costing Reports are totally worthless. These basic tasks are critical to your business advancement. We remove your paperwork frustrations and monthly accounting burden so you can focus more on operating and growing your construction company.
