Construction accounting is not just about revenue
Although contract accounting deals with revenue, the other items on the financial statements are just as important and they should not be neglected. There are also items that may not be on financial statements, but do have an effect on the day-to-day operations.
While working with contractors, you'll probably come across surety bonds. When a project owner works with contractors, a surety bond gives the project owner a financial guarantee the work of the contractor will be done according to the contract.
