30+ Years of Professional Tax & Accounting Services

Construction Accounting

We have worked with construction related businesses, helping them gain financial control, since 1987!  Considered the country’s leading experts in construction accounting, our experienced staff can help you anticipate major issues in order to avoid costly and common mistakes and pitfalls. Our passion for the industry and commitment to the growth and success of contractors nationwide will be one of your most valuable assets.

Accounting for the construction industry can be complex and frustrating without the help of an industry expert. We will “hold your hand” through the process of selecting software, setting up job costing, implementing daily, monthly, quarterly and annual routines from “closing the books” down to the granular level of reporting the correct information to state and federal authorities.

If you own, or work for, a home builder, remodeling company, specialty contractor, commercial contractor or land developer and are struggling with keeping your books in order, filing your taxes on time, analyzing your profit and loss statements, or feel confident in the way your financials are being handled now, but know your company has the potential to grow more or get to the next level, then look no further. We can be your personal financial project manager, guiding you through deciding which type of entity structure works best for you, systems set up, software, bookkeeping, accounting, tax returns, tax strategies and planning and preparing bonding reports or reviewed financials. Why can we say that? Because we wrote the book on it!

You might recognize our CPA as the author of the acclaimed “Contractor’s Guide to QuickBooks,” a step by step guide to setting up your QuickBooks files to fit contractor-specific needs, or perhaps you might have had the good fortune to attend one of the many, highly applauded classes taught by one of our staff at the Journal of Light Construction, A/E/C Systems, NAHB or NARI.
