Ann Sullivan Insurance Agency, Inc.

Wade and his staff are dedicated to my small business’ administrative and accounting needs.  Wade developed a plan for my office that allows me sell insurance while he and his staff handle my accounting and payroll.  I can trust Wade to handle my accounting and payroll needs timely and accurately.

Chris Pettis, CEO

Chris Pettis Insurance Agency, Inc.

Working with Carpenter and Company since opening my business in 2015 has been a great experience. They have always led me in the right direction through honesty and integrity. They are very well versed in the tax law and have helped me understand the new changes for the 2018 taxes."

That's probably the simplest and most useful financial tool I have is that each morning I can just pull up my bank account. I can look at that income and see what's changed, what's come in. And then I can make those conscious distributions to each of my different accounts.


There isn't a business owner out there who hasn't had that year, where the accountant says man, you had a great year, and you're looking around trying to figure out what he's talking about, and where it is.

Profit First means that you've got it and it changes your mindset.


Lincoln Parks, President


Wade Carpenter and his team have changed the trajectory of my company. Wade laid out a comprehensive 5-year business plan with projections for my company and it provided me with the insight that changed our company's direction. If it were not for Wade and his team working with me in such detail, I doubt we would have been able to grow as we have. We owe the last 5 years of our existence to Carpenter Company CPAs.

BuildSmart Enterprises, LLC

BuildSmart Enterprises has enjoyed a lengthy business relationship with Carpenter & Company. When I started the business in 2013, I needed more than a simple accountant; I needed a trusted adviser that was familiar with the construction business. Carpenter & Company proved to be the right choice. They have provided comprehensive and strategic accounting services to help my business grow.

Courtney Frey, President

Compass Security Solutions, Inc.

It is hard to come by people that you can trust whole-heartedly. Wade and his staff are these type 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 ability to be able to call them whenever I need assistance and they are quick to my aide, no matter what the task.

I created a business to provide me more freedom financially, time to do several things, to help a lot of people, but I always neglected myself.

Now my compensation--even in the first year, 2020 was a downturn for us like it was for a lot of people, I took more in profit than I have most years combined.


Josh Leibowitz

Atlanta Area Building & Remodeling, LLC

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.

Phyllis J Abbott, Office Manager

JT Plumbing Inc.

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.

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.

HamrNnailz, Inc.

Wade Carpenter and his team have helped our construction company to become more organized and running a corporation the way it should be. After several years of neglected bookkeeping, we started working with Carpenter & Company in 2005. They helped clean up and train us on how to use QuickBooks properly for construction. Wade has mentored me and helped the company grow to what it is today. We value our relationship with Wade and the team.  With their expertise in the construction industry, the firm has provided new ideas and functions that I’ve incorporated into my company. They have proven to be efficient tools in my ongoing success. I highly recommend this firm to all of my business colleagues.
