    I was wondering what you guys do to review the year financially besides checking the bottom line.

    Compare to previous years.
    Each customer to previous yrs
    Equipment, fuel, repairs to previous yrs
    Payroll to previous years, figure out revenue generated to hours of payroll.

    I guess i should have been a little more clear. I am a design build company with no lawn accounts. We are located in a smaller demographic that does work in about 7 different towns. I compare sales per town, and find where my strength's and weaknesses are. I also keep track of the amount of time that it takes to complete each job. At the end of the year i review each job and check to see if my prices per unit are where they need to be. I also check my budget against my actual spending. Are there any other design build companies that do things differently?
