Strategy and Advising

Helping you improve your business from initial setup through your growth years and into succession planning.

At Forehand & Associates, we value long-term relationships with our clients.  Most of our clients have been with our team for ten years or more.  We understand all the phases of a contractor’s life cycle – from startup, through your wealth-building years, into succession planning and exit strategies.

Startups • We have assisted many contractors in their initial formation and setup.  We are ready to assist you in the following areas, or in any other areas you need:

  • Accounting setup and software selection
  • Corporate setup and structure
  • State contractor licensing and DOT prequalification
  • Payroll needs including federal, state, and local requirements
  • Banking and surety relationships
  • Initial financial statements

Ongoing Operations • No matter how strong your company, we can help make it better.

  • Field reporting and management
  • Compensation
  • Purchasing decision
  • Strategic planning

Succession planning • The sooner you think about this the better.  Succession planning involves much more than buying insurance:

  • Identifying the next generation of leaders
  • Preparing your team for transition into senior management and ownership
  • Compensation of key employees
  • Retaining the right amount of working capital
  • Keeping your Surety happy
  • Merger and acquisition alternatives
