For Construction & Real Estate Businesses

At Apex, we know that running a construction/real estate business is hard. Keeping cash available is crucial to sustaining and expanding your firm. No one wants a surprise tax bill when it’s tax season! We can help you avoid that.

Our experts can work with you to build a financial plan with tax strategies designed to help you achieve your goals.

As former auditors for the Department of Revenue, we have the unique perspective on what red flags auditors are looking for to minimize your chance of an audit or help you navigate through one confidently. When you choose Apex, you choose to work with experts who know the industry in and out.

For Small & Medium-Sized Businesses

Whether you are a small business owner who has no financial plans or one that’s looking to improve an existing strategy, Apex can help you analyze, strategize, and streamline your financial plans. We can help you stay updated with the ever-changing tax laws.

The Apex team understands the way your business operates, helps you keep track of expenses, and provides you with valuable insight to make informed financial decisions.

We believe that providing you with better financials will allow you to make more informed decisions and put you on the road to success. We provide you with a custom approach and ensure that you have the right support to streamline your finances.

How We Got Started

Our Story

Apex Business Consulting was founded by Jonas after working for many years in the private and public sectors. He was passionate about finding a firm that always puts the clients first, and after not finding one, he decided to take his experience and start his own.

Our mission is not to be just another tax shop but to be a partner who you can turn to at any time of the year for your next important financial decision.

While based in North Carolina, we can support clients in every state. We currently have a foot print in 42 different states. We love what we do, and we do it with passion!
