Real Estate & Construction

Over 25% of our practice is dedicated to servicing the real estate and construction industry.

The construction industry is characterized by swings in profit margins, available work, cash flows, and labor availability – all of which can have a substantial impact on your company’s profits. Additionally, as industry regulations increase and become more stringent, the cost of compliance will likely continue to grow. Our CPAs and advisors provide a broad range of accounting, auditing, and tax services to contractors and sub-contractors of all sizes. We advise clients regarding strategies to maximize their bonding capacity and enhance working capital. MKA combines in-depth national real estate industry knowledge with years of technical experience to provide auditing, consulting and tax services to some of the largest real estate investors in the U.S.

In addition to the traditional audit, accounting and tax services, we can assist with the following:
