Construction Business Have 100's of
Hidden Savings Waiting To Be Excavated

Want to save money each year with professional tax assistance and financial planning?

Lay the foundation today, to save $10,000's or even $100,000's each and every year.


What I Can Do For You

I have done almost everything—from helping start-up contractors get their business license, to preparing tax returns for construction companies with revenues in excess of $100 million. I have decades of experience that I can put to work for you. 


General Financial Planning

It takes specialized knowledge in the construction industry to prepare financial statements that are formatted correctly and trusted by banks and bonding companies. With my assistance, I can help you develop financial presentations designed to enhance your image with surety companies.


Expense Tracking Strategies

I can help you create internal controls and a job-cost system, so you can track job performance, compare them to your budget, and determine ongoing profitability. I can also provide you with information and counsel on industry benchmarks and best practices, as well as implementing improved financial reporting controls.


Finding Hidden Savings

Compared to large contractors, the tax rules for small and medium contractors are more complex; but there are also unique opportunities to minimize or defer your taxes. I can help you evaluate the various options for reporting taxable income from long-term contracts with cash, accrual, percentage-of-completion, or completed-contract methods.


Construction Specific Expertise

The problem punch list facing contractors and real estate developers seems endless, and a shallow understanding of general accounting and taxes is not enough.

I take great pride in providing the special construction accounting knowledge and expertise that is needed to help you with the diverse day-to-day operations of your business.

With my Bay Area construction accounting experience, I can help you with everything from selecting entity considerations for doing business, evaluating purchasing or leasing equipment as well as equipment depreciation, to identifying federal and state credits available to your company.

Whatever the size of your company, I am confident I can provide you with tailored and comprehensive financial information, advice and solutions.

Save Money For What Matters

The accounting practices and tax provisions that affect contractors and real estate developers are unique, and you can’t afford to have your tax advisor learning the industry on your time.  Overlooking valuable tax breaks can cost you money, and poor accounting practices can impact your company’s financial stability.

I am an experienced professional who knows how to get the job done for contractors and real estate developers. I have experience across a wide spectrum of the industry – including general and specialty contractors, homebuilders and real estate developers. Armed with insightful financial information and competent advice, you can feel confident making well-informed decisions. 

My goal is not only to save you money, but to help you achieve business and personal financial goals, so you can do the things you love, and enjoy owning a thriving business.

Who Is David Kirst

I am an active licensed California Certified Public Accountant (CPA) with an undergraduate degree in accounting and graduate degree in taxation. I am certified as an Intuit Quickbooks ProAdvisor.

My expertise is in closely held businesses and individual taxes. Most of my clients run an S corporation, partnership, or single member LLC in the areas of real estate, professional services and/or distribution and manufacturing.

As a sole practitioner, I will perform the client interview, the data input, the review, and the tax filing. This is advantageous over a larger firm because I am intimately familiar with all of the details of your tax returns. Utilizing my services as a sole practitioner allows for a seamless and streamlined beginning to end process, as well as offering time management benefits – your focus can remain on overseeing your business, while I focus on the annual financial and tax compliance obligations. I leverage email and phone conversations to obtain requested information while maintaining the quality of the tax returns.
