What is a construction CPA?

Construction CPAs are certified public accountants with an advanced understanding of the ins and outs of a construction business. With their industry knowledge and technical experience, they can assist you in areas such as job costing, tax compliance and planning, financial statement audits and much more.

What is the difference between construction accounting and regular accounting?

Construction accounting encompasses a greater range of industry-specific considerations than the basic accounting needs of traditional businesses. For example, a construction job requires consulting, engineering, materials, design, etc., all of which impact your bottom line. Construction CPAs consider the many direct and indirect costs of a job that would not otherwise be considered to help ensure your jobs and overall business is profitable.
