Mr. Gudaitis is the Managing Partner of The Gudaitis CPA Firm PLLC.

Mr. Gudaitis is a Certified Public Accountant who has been practicing in the accounting and financial industry for over 15 years. The foundation of this experience was built and developed over a decade of working in public accounting. During this time he managed clients for both national and local CPA firms where the clients he served ranged from small businesses, wealthy investors and not-for-profit organizations to multinational public companies.
As a result of this experience Mr. Gudaitis has become an expert in financial statement analysis, entity structuring, tax planning and tax compliance for many types of business entity structures including but not limited to C Corporations, S Corporations, Partnerships, Trusts, Single Member Limited Liability Companies, Sole Proprietorships and joint venture arrangements. This experience has given him the advantage of being able to work on complicated issues associated with tax deferred exchanges, installment sales, foreign transactions regulated by FIRPTA, divorce related issues and private equity investments.
Mr. Gudaitis also provides transaction advisory services which include developing pro-forma financial models for new business investments, creating discounted cash flow models for commercial real estate acquisitions and securing financing arrangements for businesses and other assets. He has successfully negotiated the terms, structure and letter of intent with sophisticated lenders during the financing stages of the investment process. Other projects have consisted of providing outsourced controllership and CFO services to clients on both an interim and long term basis.
He has drafted and prepared financial statements including all relevant disclosures for audit, review and compilation engagements. In addition, he has performed services which include preparation of Personal Financial Statements for High-Net-Worth Individuals and management-use only financial statements which are utilized by company directors for internal decision making purposes.
In his prior role at Raymond James Tax Credit Funds, Inc., Mr. Gudaitis was responsible for the acquisition of syndicated real estate portfolios valued at over $100 million. He developed financial analysis to model capital contributions, sources and uses of funds, acquisition costs, development costs, operating costs and cash flow to determine risk and after-tax yield on invested equity.
