Any recommendations on cloud based accounting services? I'm going to be operating a small construction company as a GC and eventually investing in single family flips and rentals. Thanks in advance.
There are at least a dozen active tax CPAs and EAs on this forum. To my knowledge all are equipped to work remotely with clients.
I would read a few posts of each, jot down the names of ones you like and reach out.
Let's be clear what you're asking about when you say "accounting."
a. Cloud bookkeeping. This is processing your day-to-day expenses and receipts. For your construction company, look into QuickBooks for Self-Employed:
They recently added an upgraded option where you have access to their contracted accountants. It's probably worth the extra money.
b. Cloud tax preparation. This is done once a year, and the above-mentioned QBSE has a bundled service which includes tax prep.
Now, the 1st warning: both options should work fine for your construction company, as long as it is taking off and making modest money. Once it starts flying (say over $50k profit left after all expenses) - then you need individual tax planning. It can be provided by any competent accountant, locally or remotely.
The 2nd warning: construction companies are fairly simple when it comes to bookkeeping and taxes. Once you start buying properties to flip or rent - you're entering a very complex world of real estate taxation. At that point, you need a real estate specialty accountant on your team. You can find a bunch of us on this forum.
