OVERVIEW

Accounting and financial reporting for construction contractors may be the most difficult area to be in compliance with the various standards. Also, construction engagements are, in many instances, more “dangerous” than most lines of businesses due to the many users of the financial statements. In this course, we will discuss why construction accounting and financial reporting are so complex, and discuss the relationship between the contractor and the surety, from both an underwriting and claims perspective. We will also explore what the surety looks for in order to maximize potential bond credit.
