How does the accounting for a framing business handle the costs of materials and labor?

The accounting for a framing business generally divides costs into two main categories: materials and labor.

The cost of materials includes all the materials used in framing, such as wood, nails, and other necessary supplies. These are typically classified as direct materials cost in the cost of goods sold (COGS) section of the balance sheet. The costs are recorded when the materials are used, not when they are purchased.

Labor costs on the other hand, cover the expenses of all employees involved in the construction and assembly process. These are treated as direct labor costs, and are also included in the COGS.

Accurate tracking of these costs allows framing businesses to accurately determine their gross profit margin, manage their budgets more effectively, and identify areas for cost savings. Working with a professional bookkeeper or accountant can help ensure these costs are tracked and documented accurately.

Bookkeepers can make sure all your financial transactions, including labor, materials, and overhead costs, are accurately recorded and categorized.
