Ultimate Guide to Submittals

Just as every trade feels they’re the most important and essential part of constructing a building, every phase of the project planning process feels like the most critical. When it comes to submittals, however, they truly are near the top of the importance ladder.

The submittal process is an opportunity for everyone on a project to get on the same page, which rarely happens throughout the life of a project. By establishing an efficient submittal management process, a project can go off with fewer hitches, better communication, and better collaboration.

What is a submittal?

A submittal is a document sent from the subcontractors in the field to the design personnel on a project. Their function is to verify that everyone is on the same page in regard to nearly every material, finish, and fixture on a project.

When an architect, engineer, or designer creates a set of plans, they specify (to the best of their ability) every material on the project. When the subcontractors finally receive and review the plans, they do their best to decipher exactly which materials the plans call for. To ensure that they’re on point, they send a submittal package to the design professional. This package includes all of the materials they believe match the specs the best.

The design professional or firm then reviews all of the submittals, ensuring that every material is consistent with the drawings. They’ll verify everything from steel beams to paint and carpet colors.

A Submittal Example

Let’s say an architect creates a set of plans to build an office building. He’ll specify every aspect of the project, from the steel beams to the carpets.

The subcontractor responsible for ordering the doors, flooring, and other finishing materials for our office building will need to create several submittals to ensure they’re using the right products. In the case of the doors, they’ll contact a supplier for a product information sheet for doors that match the ones specified on the plans. The subcontractor will submit this information sheet to the general contractor, who will then submit it to the designer for approval.

When the subcontractor sends several submittals for approval, they’ll usually bundle them up and submit them at once. This is a submittal package.

Types of Submittals

With the thousands of potential submittals possible on a construction project, it makes sense that there would be at least a handful of different types. It’s essential to understand each and how they work.

Shop Drawings

Obviously, you can’t just order every material on a construction project off of a shelf in a warehouse somewhere. Often, a fabricator needs to create a fixture, structural component, or other items from scratch in their shop.

To ensure that the fabricator’s proposed product will meet the design pro’s specifications, they’ll send a submittal with their shop drawings. These submittals often include details such as dimensions, materials, and qualities.

Material Data

Many times, an engineer or architect will be very specific about the materials they’ve included with their drawing. In public projects, the engineer may specify two or three products in the name of healthy competition. Even in these hyper-specific scenarios, there can still be a bit of gray area.

To help keep the gray area from throwing the project off schedule, over budget, or out of spec, a contractor will send a submittal with the materials they believe they are to use. As you can imagine, a submittal for every material can become overwhelming, but it’s important to ensure a safe and successful project.

Product Samples

When it comes to finishes and aesthetics, sometimes the only way to ensure the finished product meets the designer’s vision is with samples. Contractors can use sample submittals for anything from paint colors, carpets, floor tiles, moldings, hardware, or other details throughout the project.

What to Include in a Submittal

A submittal package can be full of supporting documents, images, specs, drawings, and other important information. Knowing what to include or expect in a submittal can streamline the process.

In general, submittals should include:

  • The subcontractor’s business name and contact info.
  • The contact name and info of the design professional or contractor who needs to review the submittal.
  • Any drawing reference numbers for the engineer to follow.
  • Product information directly from the manufacturer that outlines the specifications, model numbers, dimensions, capacities, and other important information.
  • Extremely detailed shop drawings. They should include the specifications of all the materials used in the construction of prefabricated items, particularly when it comes to structural components.
  • Color, texture, and finish selections available for a product, material, or surface specified in the plans.
  • Samples, pictures of mock-ups, or any other supporting information that will help the designer make a decision.

While submittal packages, spec sheets, and shop drawings can be overwhelming, the actual submittals don’t have to be complicated. They should include all of the information that will help the designer make a decision and respond quickly.

The Submittal Creation and Review Process

In a perfect world, a submittal would go from the subcontractor to the designer, and then from the designer back to the subcontractor with an approval. However, submittals can make many, many more stops along the way.

When a subcontractor creates a submittal, they have to start with the product manufacturer or fabrication shop. With the help of this supplier, they’re able to put their submittal or submittal package together.

The submittal then goes to the general contractor for review and approval. Potentially, the general contractor could deny the submittal if it’s clearly missing the mark from what the drawing specified. If the general contractor approves, they will then send the submittal up the chain to the architect for approval.

The architect will then review and approve or deny the submittal based on their point of view. The next stop for the submittal could be an engineer or design consultant, or potentially the owner. Once everyone on the chain signs off on the submittal, the material, finish, or product is okay for use on the project.

Commons Problems with Submittals

While the overarching goal of a submittal is to ensure that everyone is on the same page and that the project can go off smoothly, they aren’t perfect. There are some common issues with the submittal process, and understanding them can help you avoid them or minimize their effect on the project.

Paper Dimensions vs. Actual Dimensions

For all of the effort that architects, engineers, and designers put in trying to put the perfect roadmap together, construction projects often vary at least slightly from the plans. While the industry as a whole does allow for changes and variations with change orders or RFIs, certain phases of a project need the actual dimensions in the field.

Signing off on a submittal for a custom-fabricated material without knowing if it will actually work in the field is a problem. Plans and drawings are great for getting the project rolling, but there are times when a sub needs to be at the site to create an accurate submittal.

Delays in the Chain

One of the biggest issues with the submittal process is delays in the chain. A subcontractor can create and supply a submittal on time and with the best intentions, but a few days here and there on various decision-makers’ desks can throw off a timeline. Because there are so many stops along the way, it can be difficult to tell where the submittal package is at any given time.

Poor Organization and Tracking

Just about every part and component involved in the construction of a building requires a submittal to ensure it meets with the designer’s or architect’s specifications. With so many submittals on any single project, keeping track of them all can be a full-time job.

Delays due to poor organization can rock the timeline even more severely than a submittal sitting on a decision maker’s desk for too long. When submittals fall victim to poor management, contractors and designers have to make snap decisions that might not pan out as planned. Worse yet, the project could be at a standstill over a submittal lost in the shuffle.

Streamlining the Submittal Process

The submittal process isn’t fun for anyone involved. As a subcontractor, putting together a complete submittal takes a lot of time and work, and mistakes along the way can be a real issue. As a project manager or prime contractor, managing all of the submittals from every specialty contractor can be a headache. Misplacing just one of those submittals can throw off the entire project.

Even just ensuring that you have all the submittals from all the subs that need to submit them is tough.

Streamlining the submittal process can make a significant impact on the project’s workflow. The best way to simplify the process is to rely on a software program to help you submit, forward, and track submittals automatically.

Preparing Submittals with Premier Construction Software

Preparing a huge binder full of photocopies and product data sheets is time-consuming. Instead of printing, photocopying, and punching holes in all of your submittal documents, create your submittals with Premier Construction Software.

Premier Construction Software allows you to upload all of the important documents and pictures that your submittal will require. This can save a lot of time, paper, and frustration over the course of developing a submittal package. Once you create all of your submittals, Premier will keep track of them on its cloud-based document management system. Using this will allow anyone with permission to access these documents.

The ease of creating a submittal and the cloud-based access will allow several parties to work on a submittal package together, speeding up the process and promoting teamwork.

Create and track construction submittals with Premier Construction Software

Sending Submittals with Premier Construction Software

Even more archaic than building a physical submittal package is actually mailing or delivering one.

Sending submittals has never been easier than it is with Premier Construction Software. Once prepared, you can send a submittal, or several, to multiple contacts instantly through email. Each contact will have access to the drawings, datasheets, and whatever other documents or images you attached to the submittal.

You’ll now know who has the submittal and when they received it, taking the guesswork out of tracking your submittal package across several desks or offices.

Approvals and Denials

Getting or giving a response for a submittal doesn’t have to drag down the project with construction software like Premier Construction Software. Submittals can receive responses in real-time, allowing the project to move forward quicker than standard paper-based submittal packages.

Decision-makers are able to annotate, approve or deny a submittal electronically, giving feedback or conditions as they apply to the submittal.

Tracking Submittals with Premier Construction Software

Perhaps the most challenging aspect of submittals is tracking and organizing them to ensure that nothing gets lost in the shuffle. Traditionally, tracking these documents required administrative staff to manually input each submittal into a long spreadsheet. It’s a long and tedious process. It’s also the perfect breeding ground for human error. Premier Construction Software can help with that, as well.

Instead of creating and maintaining your own submittal log, Premier does it automatically. When you send or receive a submittal with Premier Construction Software, that submittal becomes accessible through the cloud-based document database. You’ll be able to track each submittal and its status easily from anywhere with internet access. Premier provides a complete history of each submittal as well, so you can stay up-to-date with any changes or updates.

By utilizing the document management system in Premier, you’ll be able to search for any submittal (or other important documents) on the project for any information you might need.

Submittal management is key to the success of your project.

Whether you’re a subcontractor, general contractor, or design professional, proper submittal management should be a priority for your project. Submittals with the proper information, timely responses, and open communication allow a more collaborative approach to a project. They also ensure the project goes as smoothly as possible.

Accounting Tips & Advice

7 Benefits of Outsourcing Payroll Versus In-House Processing

Making the decision about whether to outsource payroll or keep it in-house takes a lot of thought and preparation. Construction payroll can be complicated, and you also have to make sure that your payroll costs are allocated appropriately.

Before you decide what to do about your payroll, keep in mind these seven benefits of outsourcing construction payroll.

Benefits of outsourcing payroll

1. Save time

Processing payroll takes time. If you’re just starting out with new software or new employees, there’s the software set up, employee set up, timesheet review, timesheet entry, and then calculating pay and taxes. Depending on the size of the company and how frequently employees are paid, payroll processing can require a part-time or full-time staff member. Administrators can easily spend 20 hours a week just processing payroll and dealing with payroll-related items.

By outsourcing payroll processing, you’ll free up hours that have been spent on these administrative tasks. Instead of staff working part-time to process payroll, they may only need to spend a few hours getting the information ready for processing. Having another company provide these services will give your staff more time to work on the business and serve your customers.

2. Expertise

Most construction companies ask their office staff to provide many services, of which payroll is only a small part. Unless you need a full-time payroll processor, you look for potential admin employees that have multiple skill sets, because admin staff often spend their time working on a variety of tasks. All this means that payroll knowledge is often secondary to other skills.

A payroll service specializes in providing only payroll processing, so you know they have the expertise needed. Also, outsourcing services use the most up-to-date software ensuring that your payroll is accurate and that it’s performed as efficiently as possible. When updates occur, as they always do, you won’t have to spend valuable time getting up to speed or paying your employees to learn a new process.

3. Keep current staff level

As your company grows, payroll begins to take more and more of your administrative staff’s time. You may find you need to hire more staff just to handle the workload from payroll. There’s added cost and time for onboarding a new employee, training them, and getting them up to speed. Spending time and money on acquiring staff and training them keeps you from doing your work.

By outsourcing, you won’t need to add more staff just to handle payroll as your company gets larger. The service will be responsible for expanding to meet your needs. If you outsource, you can easily assess your staffing needs without having to worry about added payroll processing.

4. You’re always in compliance

It’s imperative to your business that you obey and comply with the laws and regulations for record-keeping and storage of documents, especially when it comes to payroll. Payroll laws are always changing, and software updates are a regular occurrence. Keeping up with the latest and greatest is time-consuming and can be confusing when staff are working on other tasks as well.

A payroll service is always up to date on the most current legislation and tax amounts. They’ll inform you of any changes that need to be made in your business practices, and the rest will be handled as part of your service package. You can rest easy knowing that your payroll is in line with the latest regulations.

5. Lower costs

Processing your own payroll means you have to purchase software, pay for a payroll service subscription, and provide staff time for software set up and payroll processing. Not only that, but you also have to maintain the security of your payroll records and ensure that sensitive information isn’t accessible. All these expenses quickly add up, making providing your own payroll processing a giant headache.

Having someone else do your payroll, including providing the software and set up, allows you to spend your resources, both time and money, on the work you do to make a profit. The savings in software expenses and staff time more than pay for the cost of outsourcing.

6. Complicated payroll is easy

Construction companies often work in multiple locations and multiple states. This complicates the payroll process by involving multiple jurisdictions, taxes, and compliance regulations. Keeping track of all this information for each state your company works in can be overwhelming even for the most experienced administrators.

An outsourcing company knows the laws and regulations for each state and what to do when your employees are working in multiple states. Their software is already set up to handle even the most complicated of payroll situations.

7. Certified payroll is effortless

If your company works on public projects that are subject to prevailing wage laws and require certified payroll reporting, payroll processing is complicated. Union companies also have detailed reporting requirements. Setting up a software system to handle certified payroll or union reporting is a complicated process that can take your staff hours to complete. On top of that, not all payroll software provides the necessary reports for this type of payroll, meaning that your staff has to spend extra time compiling the information required.

Outsourcing companies that specialize in construction payroll have the systems in place to handle prevailing wage and certified payroll reporting with ease. You simply provide the information for each project and the processor takes care of the rest. They’ll send you the reports you need with each processing and you simply turn them in to your clients or the union.

Payroll outsourcing saves time and money

Save your company time and money by outsourcing construction payroll. You’ll ensure that your employees are paid correctly, and records are stored securely, keeping your company in compliance. You’ll save staff time and admin costs, making your company more efficient and profitable.

Industry Insight Accounting

The Main Types of Billing in the Construction Industry

While many industries operate around a fixed price or point-of-sale billing structure, the construction industry tends to be a bit more complicated because of its long-term, project-based nature. Every construction project is unique and comes with its own set of requirements and challenges. Because of this, contractors may use a number of billing styles and methods, which then requires the use of construction accounting software in order to track, create and manage those billings.   

A construction contract is a legally binding document that stipulates how and when payments will be made once a project is executed. The contract type is usually defined by how disbursements will be made, and will include other pertinent project information like duration, liability, quality requirements, and more. 

While there are a number of variations that can be made to meet the specific needs of a project, this blog will focus on the most common construction contract types and billing options.   

Fixed Price / Lump Sum

Fixed price contracts (also referred to as lump sum contracts) are the most basic type of construction contract because they outline one total price for all construction-related activities. Sometimes, incentives are built into these contracts for early completion, but they may also include penalties (called “liquidated damages) for projects that are completed late. 

  • Pros: Fixed price contracts simplify the bidding process by naming one total price in lieu of submitting multiple bids. Because the project price is already set, finishing under-budget results in higher profit margins.
  • Cons: Because there’s one set price that’s agreed upon, any unexpected changes or setbacks cut directly into profit. Therefore, it’s critical to try to account for every variable upfront, which can be difficult to predict, especially on larger and more complex projects. 


Under a cost-plus billing structure, the owner agrees to pay the contractor for the project costs plus a fee, which may either be a fixed fee or calculated as a percentage of costs. 

  • Pros: This billing structure provides the most flexibility, and allows owners to make design changes along the way while also providing the contractor with assurance that they’ll be paid for any extra time or materials those changes require.
  • Cons: Cost-plus contracts require contractors to front and justify costs, which can sometimes be difficult to account for, and owners may be reluctant to reimburse for indirect costs like mileage or administrative expenses. And because the owner is ultimately responsible for payment of any unforeseen costs, this structure provides owners with the least control over costs.Automate your cost-plus billing process using Premier Contstruction Software

Time and Materials (T&M)

With a time and materials billing structure, the contract price is based on the cost of materials, plus an established pay rate. 

  • Pros: T&M billing is easy to use for small projects, and a good option when the scope of work is unclear or undefined. It’s attractive for builders because it means they’re not completely limited by budget, although price caps are commonly established to mitigate the owner’s risk.
  • Cons: Tracking and logging the cost of time and materials can be tedious, but failure to do so results in lower profit margins. Also, because this billing type pays by the hour or by the day, there’s no real incentive to finish a project early unless the contract includes a stipulation to pay a bonus for finishing ahead of schedule.  

AIA Progress Billing

Named after the American Institute of Architects (AIA) that produces its official forms, AIA progress billing invoices the customer based on the percentage of work that’s completed during that billing period. This type of billing is common in projects that last a long time as it allows the contractor to fund themselves and the project while it’s in progress.  

  • Pros: AIA contract documents are widely-used, standardized forms that are applicable to many project types, and they can be customized to include specific terms like retainage rates or interest rates on late payments.
  • Cons: While the AIA standard contract documents can be customized, the contractors may have to pay for these modifications to be made, which can be expensive. Additionally, any changes to standard documentation invites the potential for legal risk and, therefore, should be reviewed by legal counsel.


Understanding the different types of construction contracts and billing models is critical to determining the right fit for you and your project.

Accounting Features Tips & Advice

Filing 2020 1099-NEC Forms in Premier

For tax years prior to 2020, companies were required to file a 1099-MISC form for any nonemployee compensation paid out to subcontractors for any amount over $600. This year the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has created a new form to be filed, the 1099-NEC which is specifically used for nonemployee compensation.

This article is designed to explain how Premier can streamline reporting, as well as provide updates on the new form implemented by the IRS.

What is Non-Employee Compensation? 

Per the IRS, if the four conditions are met, you likely will need to report payments as Non-Employee Compensation:

  1. You made a payment to someone who is not your employee.
  2. You made a payment for services in the normal course of your trade or business (including government agencies and non-profit organizations).
  3. You made the payment to an individual, partnership, estate, or a corporation.
  4. You made payments to the payee of at least $600 during the year.

What Changed from 2019 to 2020 ?

For the tax years starting after 2020, the IRS has decided to bring back form 1099-NEC. In tax years prior to 2020, the filing deadline for NEC on the 1099-MISC 2019 Form was still January 31, for any amounts in Box 7 which related to non-employee compensation. This has been done to streamline and simplify the process given the different dead lines for each form. Now all items which would have previously been reported in Box 7 of the 2019 1099-MISC will instead be recorded in Box 1 of the 1099-NEC.

Extensions for Form 1099-NEC reporting Nonemployee Compensation can only be requested as a non-automatic 30-day extension of time and must be filed on paper using Form 8809.

Is its important to note per the IRS publication, that the 1099-NEC form is not part of the Combined Federal/State Filing (CF/SF) Program. This means you must file a separate form directly with the state.  Form 1099-MISC can continue to be filed with the CF/SF Program.

Although the forms have changed, it is important to note both forms are intended for trade or business reporting only and not related to personal payments. The 1099-NEC is strictly for reporting independent contractor payments exceeding $600 in the year.

How Premier Streamlines Your Report

Premier has specialized forms that allow you to directly print on your IRS Submission forms! This saves you valuable time by automatically generating your 1099-NEC’s. In Premier, simply select the 2020 – 1099-NEC Default Form to print directly on the IRS Forms. In Premier, you are also able to print completed forms directly on blank paper for State tax department forms (Copy 1), recipient tax forms (Copy 2 to file with taxes and Copy B for records), and your own personal copy (Copy C). Premier allows you to automatically generate your annual information for each independent contractor including their address, tax identification number (TIN) and total non- employee compensation paid out, including applicable taxes.

Premier also has the capability to file online directly with the IRS! You are required to have  Please note if you have over 200 1099-NEC’s to file, you must efile your forms with the IRS.

What should be reported on 1099-NEC?


Box 1 Non-Employee Compensation:

  • Must report payments to independent contractors
  • Payments for working interests for oil and gas payments
  • Prizes and awards for services performed by nonemployees
  • Termination payments to former self-employed insurance salespeople if certain criteria are not met (see IRS for details)
  • All payments made to a corporation that provides legal services i.e. the attorney fees must be reported (note settlement payments for contracts are to be included in 1099-MISC box 10)

When reporting taxes on 1099-NEC, it is important to note that if you have paid state or local taxes on the amounts paid to a nonemployee, the amounts you have paid must be included in Box 1.

Some examples from the IRS of what should be included in Box 1 include the following:

  • Professional service fees, such as fees to attorneys (including corporations), accountants, architects, contractors, engineers, etc.
  • Fees paid by one professional to another, such as fee-splitting or referral fees.
  • Payments by attorneys to witnesses or experts in legal adjudication.
  • Payment for services, including payment for parts or materials used to perform the services if supplying the parts or materials was incidental to providing the service.
  • A fee paid to a nonemployee, including an independent contractor, or travel reimbursement for which the nonemployee did not account to the payer, if the fee and reimbursement total at least $600.
  • Exchanges of services between individuals in the course of their trades or businesses, such as a barter transaction.
  • Taxable fringe benefits for nonemployees, such as transit passes and parking passes which exceed $21 in a month. The value of parking may be excludable from an independent contractor’s gross income, and, therefore, not reportable on Form 1099-NEC if certain requirements are met

Box 4: Federal withholding taxes

For the majority of all 1099-NEC’s filed, this is may be non-applicable. There are only certain conditions that the IRS may mandate that withholding taxes be held back. The most likely scenario to occur which requires withholding is :

  • The recipient fails to provide their TIN to you
  • The IRS notifies you to impose backup withholding because the recipient provided an incorrect TIN

Box 5 to 7: State or local sales taxes

According to the IRS, these boxes are provided for your convenience and do not need to be completed.

Who is responsible to file?

If you make a payment on behalf of another person using their funds, you may be responsible for filing Form 1099-NEC.  In addition, if you make payments directly and even if you provide management oversight for the issuance of payments you are responsible for filing information returns for payments of $600 or more paid to contractors. Please note, if the independent contractor is registered as a C corporation or S corporation, a 1099-NEC will not be required.

IRS Deadlines

It is important to note the filing deadlines differ between the two forms. The deadline to file Form 1099-NEC using either paper or electronic filing with the IRS is on or before February 1, 2021 (note January 31, 2021 is a Sunday).

However, this is different for Form 1099-MISC. Paper filings for 1099-MISC must by filed by March 1, 2021 (note February 28, 2021 is a Sunday), but electronic filings must be completed on or before March 31, 2021.

Deadlines for Statement to Recipients

Regardless of whether you are filing Form 1099-NEC or 1099-MISC, all recipients must be provided their copy of their respective form by January 31. One exception is amounts reported in Box 8 or 14 of  Form 1099-MISC are due by February 15.
