What are Current Assets?

Current Assets in the construction industry represent the value of all assets that can reasonably be expected to be converted into cash within one fiscal year. This includes assets such as cash on hand, accounts receivables, inventory, and other short-term investments. For construction companies, the most significant current assets are typically inventory and accounts receivables. The inventory will usually include materials, equipment for construction, and any other resource that is vital for completing projects. Accounts receivable, on the other hand, pertains to the money that the company's clients owe for the projects the company has already completed or is currently working on. Understanding the concept of current assets helps to analyze a construction company's liquidity, operational efficiency, and overall financial health.
