Our mission is to serve our clients by providing them and their organizations the highest quality accounting, bookkeeping, tax planning, tax compliance, financial consulting, and other CPA services at a reasonable cost.
Our company began in 1997 when George Fox, CPA established a sole practice in Tacoma, WA. His initial focus was on governmental and municipal finance and accounting. In 2007, he acquired a CPA firm in Vancouver and changed the focus of the enterprise to small and mid-sized private sector businesses, non-profit entities, and individuals. In 2008, we acquired another accounting firm and consolidated our operations in a new office in Vancouver. Since then, we have purchased or acquired two other accounting/CPA firms.
Fox & Company has been operating in the same office since November 2007, and through internal growth and practice acquisitions, our company has grown to employ more than 12 professional and paraprofessional employees and serve more than 1,500 clients every year. Together, we have built a team of people who provide high quality, reliable and accurate auditing, accounting and bookkeeping, business, individual, and nonprofit income and other tax compliance, tax audit and appeals representation, and business and personal consulting services. We anticipate continuing to grow and build our enterprise in the future.
Our company does business in Washington as a licensed CPA firm, and we work with clients from all over the world.
