Brown Edwards Leads the Way in CCIFP ProfessionalsOur Certified Construction Industry Financial Professionals (CCIFPs) can help you navigate the complex revenue recognition rules and job cost accounting methods of the construction industry.

Construction has complex revenue recognition rules and job cost accounting methods. Many firms have construction clients, but they have not dedicated the resources necessary to make construction a major practice area. The firms with CCIFP public accounting certification for the construction industry have demonstrated commitment to the industry and proficiency in all areas of construction financial management.  With nine CCIFP certified professionals, Brown Edwards is among the top ten firms in the country regarding CCIFPs on staff.

The Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (CCIFP®) designation is the only accounting certification for construction financial professionals accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) under ISO 17024:2012.

Public accounting professionals with the CCIFP certification must have a minimum 4,000 hours professional experience in construction in addition to showing expertise in eight knowledge domains, and only three of the knowledge domains are accounting-related:

  • Accounting and reporting
  • Income recognition methods
  • Risk management
  • Budgeting and planning
  • Legal
  • Human resources
  • Taxes
  • Information technology

So when you hire a public accountant as a partner for your business, insist on a firm with CCIFP public accounting certification for the construction industry.
