Financial planning for getting work done

The construction industry is unique and challenging. The rewards can be great; the failures, devastating. As a result, the contractor must constantly be alert to changing conditions. The construction industry requires considerable short-term and long-range planning—not only for the actual construction process, but also in meeting the company’s goals for bonding, adequate bank financing and taxes. Effective interplay between these areas will help enhance your profitability.
