Government Contractors

As a government contractor, you know that your business is unique and your accounting needs are complex. Even the most seasoned contractors can become overwhelmed with the vast accounting regulations, standards, and practices required by Federal, State, and Local agencies, including the Defense Contract Auditing Agency (DCAA) and other oversight organizations.

Our team has a strong grasp on accounting principles, audit complexities, and relevant standards, including Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), Cost Accounting Standards (CAS), Truth in Negotiations Act (TINA) issues, and prevailing wage/benefit compliance (SCA, DBA). We can also help small business owners capitalize on government stimulus programs that provide stability during uncertain economic times.

The truth is, compliance is critical in government contracting. One bad audit can mar lucrative and ongoing relationships with government agencies. For many contractors, existing systems may not be up to the task of financial reporting in a government environment. For others, the burden of keeping up with an ever-changing regulatory landscape can be daunting. We help all government contractors – new and old, big and small – to get set up for this type of work and to remain in compliance over the long haul.

Our CPAs are highly experienced in the following aspects of government contract accounting:

  • DCAA Audit Support
  • Cost Accounting Support
  • Incurred Cost Submissions
  • Cost Proposal Support
  • Direct and Indirect Rate Calculation
  • Accounting and Financial Reporting

Small To Large Businesses

Though their specialties and business practices may differ, their tax structures and planning concerns are similar. For example, they’re all regulated by IRS Tax Code provisions. Additionally, they are all keenly interested in protecting and growing their assets.

Tax Preparation

Taxes for the wealthy can be complicated, especially considering how frequently the tax laws change.

We help high-net-worth individuals keep more and only pay what is required.
