Because Construction Isn't Risky Enough: Mitigating Banking Risks
It can seem like the chance for failure is lurking everywhere—within one bad job, mismanagement of cash flow in the CFO's office, or in lack of skills on the job site. During this NASBP Virtual Seminar CPA Carl Oliveri of GRASSI Advisors & Accountants will share insights into steps that your contractor clients can take to mitigate banking risks. Carl will start by examining the road that we have traveled so far and where that has brought the current state of the Construction Industry, before diving into outline strategies for mitigating banking risks.
