What we do

Profitability

Construction Accounting & Bookkeeping

Bookkeeping for construction with job costing requires special skills. Most accountants were never trained in the unique requirements of construction accounting. We help you build books you can truly use.

Operations

Contractor Tax/
CFO Services

Construction tax law has many unique rules that most CPAs don't know, from specialized tax planning to multiple state taxation and licensing. We work to ensure you pay no more than is legally required.

Operations

Construction
Payroll

Payroll for construction also has several unique needs, from certified payroll reports and workers comp reporting to job costing labor and labor burden. We help you manage and control this key part of your business.

It is hard to come by people that you can trust whole-heartedly. Wade and his staff are these types of people. I couldn't ask for a better group to provide me guidance and support in growing this business that my husband and I have been blessed with. I am beyond thankful for the ability to be able to call them whenever I need assistance and they are quick to my aide, no matter what the task.

Get Started

We're not your average beancounters.

We're a business management consulting firm specializing in the construction accounting industry. We help contractors nationwide who are struggling to take home what they deserve to clarify how they control cash so that they can build a consistently profitable business.

How it started

Specializing in the construction accounting industry was a natural decision for founder Wade Carpenter, CPA, CGMA, after 30 years in public accounting working with businesses from the smallest mom-and-pop companies to multi-billion dollar international firms.

Wade specializes in this industry because he recognized that construction business owners need help in many areas that generalized CPAs don’t know and can’t handle. Construction accounting, finance, and management have many challenges and issues that most other industries don’t see, but we know well.

Running a business is much easier if you surround yourself with competent professionals. Hiring Wade's firm some 7 years ago was smart move. He not only has a vast knowledge of taxes but understands the best ways to structure and run a business profitably. He also surrounds himself with an awesome professional team/staff.

I met Wade Carpenter in 2003 at a Real Estate meeting when I first started in Real Estate.  Carpenter & Company helped me get my business set up and organized, and when my husband started his fire sprinkler company in 2005, they helped get him set up and organized as well.  I have since left the Real Estate industry, and was very happy to know that the company I now work for also uses Carpenter & Company.  They are very knowledgeable, trustworthy and dependable.  I wouldn’t want to work with any other accounting firm.

I appreciate that it’s never an issue to get them on the phone if I need a question answered.   I have found that the staff is extremely professional and knowledgeable and able to answer my questions as well and do so cheerfully.

Thank you and your staff for allowing me to have one less thing to worry about.

I have used Carpenter & Company for the past two years to not only do my taxes, but to manage my payroll, do periodic clean ups of my accounting software, and advise me on all accounting and tax related issues for my construction company. They have educated me as to the tax structure of my business and suggested changes, and then helped me implement them which has saved me money.

I appreciate that it’s never an issue to get them on the phone if I need a question answered.   I have found that the staff is extremely professional and knowledgeable and able to answer my questions as well and do so cheerfully.

Thank you and your staff for allowing me to have one less thing to worry about.
