LaPorte Named Among Top 50 Construction Accounting Firms

In its first ranking of this kind, “Construction Executive” magazine has named LaPorte CPAs & Business Advisors to its list of Top 50 Construction Accounting Firms.

Hundreds of accounting firms nationwide completed the survey to be considered for the list. Rankings were decided from a complex algorithm which considered the following: Revenues from construction practice, number of CPAs in the construction practice, percentage of firm’s total revenues from construction practice, number of construction clients in 2018, number of office locations with a construction practice, number of employees with a Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (CCIFP) certification and the year the construction practice was established. LaPorte ranked 41st on the list.

“We are honored to be included among the Top 50 Construction Accounting Firms in the country,” said Tracy Tufts, co-leader of the Construction Industry Group. “We have a deep commitment to the construction industry, and our professionals understand the special audit, tax and consulting needs of construction-related businesses.”
