Economic, Tax & Regulatory

Construction subcontractors perform more than 80 percent of the construction in the United States, contributing hundreds of billions of dollars to the economy each year. The typical net profit on a construction project is small, however — typically less than 5 percent. Subcontracting firms provide labor, materials and equipment to private and public projects on a promise of future payment represented in their subcontract agreements, and depend on the financial health of, and timely progress payments made by, project owners and upper-tier contractors. Improved tax and other regulatory requirements help subcontractors better manage their cash-flow intensive businesses.

In Brief

ASA educates public officials about how regulatory changes, including changes to the tax code, would impact subcontracting firms. ASA communicates with members of Congress and regulators at the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and other agencies, and works through coalitions such as the Small Business Legislative Council and the Government Withholding Relief Coalition. It also educates subcontractors about how new regulations will impact their businesses, including how these changes may impact contractual relationships.
