What are Liabilities?

In the construction industry, liabilities refer to the financial obligations the company owes to external entities, often as a result of past transactions or activities. These include payments to suppliers, wages to employees, loans from financial institutions, taxes to government bodies, etc. Additionally, in this industry, liabilities may also include future commitments to complete ongoing construction projects within a stipulated time frame and specific budget. Unfulfilled such obligations may lead to penalties or legal action, enhancing the liability further. Also significant are potential liabilities such as compensation for any work-related accidents or damages occurring at construction sites. Hence, managing liabilities effectively is vital for the financial health and reputation of any construction firm.
