What is a Deduction?

A deduction in the construction industry refers to a reduction or subtraction of expenses or costs incurred during a construction project. Typical deductions may include costs of materials, labor, damage repairs or maintenance, and professional fees such as architect or engineer services. It is essential for construction businesses to keep track of these expenses as they can be beneficially used for tax deduction purposes. The aim is to lower the overall taxable income, resulting in a reduced tax bill. However, it is crucial to ensure that all deductions comply with laws and regulations to prevent any potential legal implications.
