Theran Welsh, CPA, Principal with SVA Certified Public Accountants, presents an educational session, titled Construction Profit Pool and the Business Model, at the Associated Builders and Contractors of Wisconsin Human Resources and Accounting Conference on October 28, 2021.
As contractors become more profitable, they often look at performing activity they may have subbed or rented out in the past. As an example, many contractors feel that as profits improve, they want to own their own real estate. Theran’s discussion will evaluate whether they should report those real estate transactions in the construction entity, and he will explain the advantages of having separate entities, one for construction activity and one for the real estate entity. The same analysis will be presented for a contractor who may want to pursue a manufacturing activity, such as building kitchen cabinets. Most contractors usually subbed this work out but now with the cost of lumber and because they have the expertise, they look to bring that activity into the construction company. The presentation will again address the pros and cons of doing that in the construction entity or establishing a separate manufacturing entity.
