Get the industry-specific knowledge you need to successfully perform every aspect of an audit for a construction contractor. From best practices related to revenue recognition methods, to job costing, to common joint ventures, this Guide has you covered.

  • Auditor’s report— Ensure your compliance with the new headings and format requirements in AU-C section 700.
  • Audit risk factors— Be aware of and in compliance with the new and expanded Group Audit requirements of AU-C section 600. Be sure that your firm is properly considering the group and component aspects of the audit.
  • Multiemployer pension plans— Know the requirements for disclosing your involvement, and the consequences of planned changes in your participation level, through an expanded look at FASB ASU No. 2011-09.
  • Presentation of Supplementary Information— Be sure to know your duties with respect to audit evidence, management representations and presentation of that information in relation to the financial statements as a whole.
