How To Calculate The Work In Progress Accounting Adjustment For A Building Company

"91.1% of builders are either calculating Work In Progress incorrectly or not calculating it at all."

- The State of Residential Construction Industry (SORCI) Report 2023

Work In Progress is the most misunderstood number in the construction industry and it's responsible for hundreds of builders losing money year after year.

If you are calculating Work In Progress incorrectly, you could be seriously overstating your profits and paying tax on profits you didn’t actually make!

The most concerning part? Many accountants don’t even know how to calculate this number correctly for a building company.

Calculating Work In Progress every month is critical in residential construction. You need to ensure your building company has enough cash on hand to cover that liability, which can exceed $250,000 for a building company with annual sales of just $3 million.

If you calculate your Work In Progress figure and do not have enough cash to cover the liability, things can take a turn very quickly…

And that’s why we created a coaching program for members of the Association of Professional Builders covering how to calculate the work in progress accounting adjustment for a building company.
