Accounting for Architects + Engineers
Solid support and sound infrastructure
We employ more than 45 professionals who specialize in the built industry – a fact our clients value as we provide compliance and consulting services. With our built industry knowledge and financial expertise, we are uniquely qualified to help with your architecture and engineering accounting needs.
In addition to traditional tax compliance and financial statement services, Aldrich offers expertise in these key areas when offering accounting for architects and engineers:
Industry benchmarking and financial analysis
What should my realization or utilization rate be? Am I spending too much money on overhead? Our team of experts can help you answer these questions and more.
Overhead rate (FAR 31) audits and compliance
If you are doing work for the government, you need an overhead rate. We can audit your overhead rate to help you comply with government requirements. We also provide advice to help firms maintain compliance and also provide financial statement reviews, compilations, examinations, and agreed-upon procedures relative to a firm’s indirect cost role.
Developing a succession plan is a process, not an event, and needs a strategic approach. Our team of transition professionals will take the time to evaluate your best course of action.
