Oftentimes, a contractor’s success comes down to whether they can complete a project on time and within budget compared to their submitted bid. Likewise, large general contractors depend on their subcontractors’ performance in order to receive payment. Surety bonds protect the projects’ owners by ensuring the project is completed per the contract terms. Most local, state and federal government contracts – and many private jobs – require some level of assurance on performance. For small operators and large commercial contractors alike, the ability to be bonded is crucial to being awarded these projects.
Ready to get bonded? Not so fast. While surety is simply defined as a third-party guaranteeing the performance or payment of one party to another, surety bond underwriting is not so simple. It often requires CPA reviewed or audited financial statements, work in process and backlog schedules, and more. For the commercial contractor or businessperson, it can be a daunting, resource-consuming task.
