Frequently Ask Questions
Do you still have questions? Please send us a message by clicking the button below.
Why do I need a bookkeeper for my construction business?
As the owner of a construction company, you need to be tracking the financial side of your company! In many cases, business owners do not always have the time or know-how to do the accounting for their business. Having a bookkeeper can help you keep track of your finances and grow your business by staying informed.
How is accounting used in my construction company?
Generally, accounting in a construction business is keeping track of the income and expenses on jobs instead of lines of products to be sold. This can be different as each project your company does is going to have different pricing and expenses each time.
How is construction accounting different from other business accounting?
Construction accounting is a very dynamic type of accounting in that there are many other factors that need to be tracked. In construction accounting, you have to track job costing, change orders, retention, and progress billing. These aspects are not found in other types of business accounting. These aspects are not something that is negotiable to do or not do in your construction company. These should be common practices that you or your bookkeeper should be tracking on a regular basis.
Should I be using job costing in my construction business?
Yes! We recommend in the construction industry that you use job costing on each of your jobs. The constant change in the price of materials, fluctuation in labor rates, and managing overhead costs directly affect the performance of your company. You need to be able to track when to make adjustments to your bids and budgets.
What systems should I use to track the accounting side of my business?
We recommend that you use an online-based accounting system such as Quickbooks online. This system can help your company keep track of all the transactions for your company. At the end of the year, it brings all the information together for you in a profit and loss statement and a balance sheet which are two of the major documents you need to file taxes for a business.
What systems should I use for job costing?
There are a ton of web-based platforms that can help you track job costing. If you are already using Quickbooks and are managing projects yourself, we recommend starting off with Quickbooks projects. This tool is available in the Quickbooks Plus and Advanced subscriptions and is well worth the investment to track the job costing for your company!
How much does having a bookkeeper cost?
If you need help with the accounting side of your business we recommend outsourcing this division of your company. There are different factors that go into the monthly pricing of our services and that of other bookkeepers. Prices can vary depending on how many accounts you have, the services you need help with, and the amount of time required to complete the tasks. We recommend spending time speaking with us or a bookkeeper to work together on a custom plan for your business!
Does a bookkeeper do taxes?
A bookkeeper will help you prepare the financial side of your business to be able to have a tax professional file your taxes. There are cases where some bookkeepers do help their client file taxes. In our business, we do not file taxes but we partner with a network of tax professionals that can help!
Don’t you have to be local?
No! We are virtual bookkeepers. We set up meetings at times that work for both of us. We are able to access Quickbooks and associated accounts via the internet. We use other web based platforms to communicate and send documents securely. We support local businesses, but we have clients across the country. We are based out of a suburb of Chicago, and our hometown is Frankenmuth, Michigan.
