Aerospace & Defense

Focused on Your Growth

We serve more than 100 aerospace companies across the country, from start-ups to well-established corporations looking to expand their operations. Clients seek our help on matters from tax compliance and assurance to some of the specialized issues affecting the aerospace industry, such as long-term contracts, international transactions, state tax credits and incentives, and entity structures.

We also help aerospace companies understand the challenges they face in the current consolidation of many tier 2 and 3 manufacturers, helping them prepare for an exit through ownership changes or investor transitions.

For companies in the defense industry, we provide the specialized accounting services and compliance expertise to help clients succeed and position themselves to win long-term contracts in an era of uncertain government funding.

Some of our aerospace and defense clients are owned by private equity investors, and we help these investors with their portfolio acquisitions through due diligence and by meeting their ongoing assurance, tax, and consulting needs.

The Moss Adams Aerospace & Defense Practice is composed of dedicated professionals deeply engaged in the industry. Along with providing integrated accounting and consulting services, we offer ongoing client education, sponsor numerous national aerospace conferences, and host local industry events to keep our clients up to date on what's affecting their industry.
