Bookkeeping Best Practices for Construction-Industry Businesses

Living in the dark with something as important as your company’s finances is scary….and it’s dangerous.

Contractors like you didn’t get to where you are through a business school. You achieved success through hard work, an ability to solve problems, and sheer force of will. That experience and background have prepared you very well for most of the challenges that demand your attention in your construction business. The problem is your expertise hasn’t prepared you for the challenges that lurk in the darkness – especially when it comes to wrapping your head around bookkeeping best practices.

Precision Bookkeeping Practices

What's really going on?

If you’re like most contractors, you have this sense that you really don’t understand how the bookkeeping of your construction business is being done, how it should be done, and what information you should be getting from it. Unfortunately, despite all your hard work and your other skills, your business will fail or succeed based on the health of your bookkeeping.

At Apparatus we understand this problem. We have worked in the construction industry for decades and have seen first-hand what bad bookkeeping can do to a talented, hardworking contractor like you. 


A lack of confidence is a cancer in your business.

For any entrepreneur, your confidence is what keeps you going. There is no reason to continue to operate your construction business in the dark. Ignoring this problem will only lead to further erosion of your confidence. And this lack of confidence is a cancer in your business…it affects how you approach your team, how you approach your clients, and how you approach the future of your business. And don’t think for a minute that you can keep your lack of confidence to yourself. It bleeds every conversation and in every action you take and every action you don’t take.


A few easy changes can make a big difference.

By exposing and facing what is actually happening in your construction business, your confidence will grow. You’ll be armed with the tools, the information, and the knowledge to make the changes you need to make. This will affect how you approach every day, every team member, and every new customer opportunity. With every passing week and month, you’ll make small changes that stack on one another to make your business stronger and more profitable. It’s a positive chain reaction that will unleash capabilities you didn’t even know you had.
