Manufacturing

Keep costs down and productivity up

 

About Manufacturing Accounting Services

Today’s manufacturer faces many unique and difficult challenges: how to finance inventory and receivables, control inventory cost and quantities, schedule production, determine and control production costs, allocate overhead, develop pricing strategies and more.

The industry is extremely capital-intensive and requires the owners to have good working relationships with financing sources, to be innovative and receptive to new manufacturing techniques and to have a thorough grasp of cost accounting principles. Changes in tax laws have also had a significant impact on manufacturers.

Governmental and environmental regulations abound, which restrict the manufacturing process. In order to be successful, today’s owner of a manufacturing company must be capable of wearing many hats.
