Client Advisory Services

Focus on building your business — not your back office.

Day-to-day financial tasks are time consuming and take in-house resources that are often better used in other areas. Free yourself from having to staff, train and oversee back-office functions, and remove the headaches and worries of turnover and compliance with Client Advisory Services from HORNE.

And as your construction business grows, we can easily scale to meet your needs. The HORNE team can provide CFO-level guidance, institute best practices and help you plan your financial future to give you the peace of mind to manage your business with confidence.

Go ahead and grow.
We’ll take care of the numbers.


We offer a complete array of construction-specific accounting and financial services. We’re large enough and experienced enough to address virtually any challenges that arise. And with our proven background in construction, we can help you spot industry-specific issues and opportunities that other outsourcing and accounting firms may miss.

Cash Flow Management

By monitoring and managing your cash flow more effectively, you can boost your bottom line, position yourself better for bonding and conduct day-to-day business with greater confidence.

We help you manage accounts-payable transactions, analyze the financial trends of your business and monitor and project your business’s cash flow so you always have a clear picture of your financial footing today and in the months and years ahead.

  • Vendor payment history maintenance

Contractor Sales Tax Filings

Sales tax laws vary by state, and that’s particularly true for contractors. Construction tax and accounting have unique rules on the timing of income and expense related to jobs. We can identify the best method of reporting income and determine the most cost-effective tax calculation.

Outsourced CFO

Growing construction businesses often reach a “middle ground” where financial needs become more complex, but the budget or workload doesn’t justify a full-time CFO. HORNE gives you access to the leadership you need within an affordable framework that lets you pay only for the services you use.
