The COVID-19 pandemic has caused, among many other issues, supply chain problems. We all remember seeing lumber soaring to ridiculous heights, but continued product and labor shortages, port delays and production problems will also cause significant limitations in construction.
Whether you’re considering starting your own business or you already own a construction company, it’s essential to have a smart financial strategy in place that’s rooted in accounting basics to ensure long-term success. Though accounting probably wasn’t why you started your construction company, having the right foundation can help reduce your administrative duties, keeping them from overshadowing your customer relationships or ability to work in the field.
Despite the huge national infrastructure bill proposed recently, the construction industry has been slower to respond to the expected turnaround.

To protect their overall well-being, business owners must consider whether the vendors and subcontractors they’re working with are able to maintain their position financially, especially as projects and workloads ramp up.
