History has proven yet again that the real estate and construction industries are either boom or bust. Whether in a slowdown or development surge, the fundamentals for success remain market knowledge, marketing savvy, skilled management, and sound financing.  Our team of auditors, accountants and business advisors understand these factors and how they interact. Our services are fine-tuned to suit the special needs of owners, developers, contractors, and property managers.

Tax Structuring
In addition to tax preparation services, PBTK recommends organization and transaction structures that help our clients minimize their liability for federal, state, and local income taxes in multiple jurisdictions.  To oversimplify, this is accomplished by carefully designing and evaluating tax attributes to take advantage of client specific circumstances, including the following among others:

  • Segregation of improvements and repairs and maintenance costs
  • Like-Kind Exchange transactions, traditional and complex
  • Character of activities (investment and business)

In addition to traditional auditing services, we realize that construction companies have special needs. Topping the list are successful relations with bonding companies and licensing authorities.  In this regard, we can assist with the preparation of any required special report.  We can also assist management with:

  • Selecting a surety / bonding agent experienced with similar sized companies and type of contracts
  • Designing a strategy to increase bonding capacity
  • Negotiating credit lines
  • Identifying the causes of and recommending corrective actions to reduce cost overruns
  • Improving cost estimation, materials purchasing, and on-site management processes and procedures

Information Systems
PBTK can also help you analyze your information needs, select and implement information system solutions.  Today, estimating, scheduling and project management, job costing, and back office accounting systems are available for all types and sizes of contractors.
