Joint venture construction accountants

Forming a joint venture can help you share skills, expertise and cost. We can help you work together from a financial and accounting perspective.

Within the construction industry it is common practice for a property developing company and a construction company to team up on a project. This allows combined skills and expertise to bring the project in on, or under, budget.

It often makes sense for the companies to form a jointly owned subsidiary company to pay all the subcontractors and consultants, including themselves.

In the interest of fairness the accountancy function should be outsourced to an independent accountant so that neither of the owners hold the funds and this is where we can assist.

At Rouse, as specialists in the construction sector we have significant experience in running the accounting function for joint venture initiatives. We have assisted many high-profile joint ventures, including projects with £100m+ turnover and lasting several years.
