Accurate Job Costing Improves Profits

Do you include all of your costs when preparing a contract bid?


Job costing involves not only the direct expenses of labor and materials, but many indirect costs such as depreciation, overhead, employee benefits, equipment, tools and other outlays necessary to  operate your construction business — even if they are not related to any one specific job.

Don’t forget to consider all of these indirect costs and compute them accurately when you bid a job. With detailed job cost reports, you can track the profitability of each project.
