As a CPA firm specializing in construction accounting, we empower contractors to gain control over their finances and achieve consistent profitability. We understand the challenges that come with running a construction business, and we're here to help you overcome them.
Our Story: Building on a Solid Foundation
Our founder, Wade Carpenter, CPA, CGMA, and Mastery Certified Profit First Professional, has dedicated his entire career to specializing in construction accounting. With 30 years of experience in public accounting, he has worked with businesses ranging from small, family-owned enterprises to multi-billion dollar international firms within the construction sector. Wade's extensive experience in the field led him to recognize that construction business owners require specialized assistance that general CPAs often cannot provide. The unique challenges and issues of construction accounting, finance, and management are what we know best.
At Carpenter & Company, we share your passion for the construction industry. We've witnessed firsthand the determination, hard work, and resilience that construction contractors exhibit every day. Our mission is to provide you with the tools, resources, and expertise necessary to transform your business and reach new heights.
Navigating Financial Challenges with Profit First:
Building a Stronger Future Together
The Great Recession hit the construction industry hard, causing many companies to collapse and leaving countless accountants displaced. With many construction accountants moving to more stable industries, the demand for professionals skilled in construction accounting soared. However, finding properly trained construction accountants has always been difficult.
In the ten years following the recession, the number of accountants trained in construction accounting dwindled. Those who remained in the field often had limited support, while new accountants seeking to enter the industry faced scarce training opportunities.
At Carpenter & Company, we pride ourselves on having a team of experts well-versed in the intricacies of construction accounting. Our founder, Wade Carpenter, is a Mastery Certified Profit First Professional who specializes in helping construction contractors adapt their systems to gain better control of their cash flow and improve the overall health of their construction firms. We help our clients navigate the complex challenges that come with an ever-evolving economic landscape, building a stronger future for the construction industry together.
Our Clients: Building Success Stories
We specialize in working with commercial, governmental, and institutional contractors, including general and subcontractors across various industries. Our clients are the backbone of the communities they serve, and we are dedicated to helping them thrive.
While our headquarters are located just outside Atlanta, Georgia, we provide virtual services to contractors throughout the United States. Our clients range from small contractors to multi-million dollar construction firms, and we are committed to offering tailored solutions to meet their unique needs.
