What we do


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.


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.



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.

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.
