Cox and Associates CPAs LLC

Cox and Associates CPAs LLC is a full-service accounting firm that is experienced in all areas of non-profit accounting. We have worked with non-profit organizations since 1996 and have the experience to get your engagement done efficiently and effectively. The firm was established by Cynthia Cox, CPA, with the desire to listen to, educate, and encourage your staff and key leadership so that they will learn and grow in their roles in your organization.

We have the reputation for being both professional and knowledgeable regarding the uniqueness of church and non-profit accounting. Our firm delivers outstanding personal service that reaches beyond just the annual engagements. We don't want to just provide a product; we want to be our clients' most trusted advisor.

Committed to Excellence

We value excellence, and we are committed to excellence in everything we do.

Invaluable Experience

We have more than 45 combined years working with churches and non-profit organizations. This experience includes, but is not limited to, audits, reviews, compilations, and 990s for clients of between $50,000 and $14 million in receipts.


Our firm uses licensed CPA's to perform the assurance services and prepare the 990s. As CPAs we are committed to being lifelong learners by continually studying to keep our skills relevant in a profession that is changing constantly.


At Cox and Associates we are committed to educating you on the ins and outs of non-profit accounting. We will teach you best practices based on what we have seen work well for our clients throughout the years.


Even with the education and experience our staff has, we strive to be very approachable. We want you to ask us questions. There is never a stupid question; we are always available to help you navigate through the many rules and regulations of generally accepted accounting principles and the IRS.


Our staff desires to serve our clients. We spend time listening to your concerns and helping you find workable solutions. We also serve on non-profit boards as volunteers.

Tailored Solutions

We LISTEN to what you, the client, needs, and we tailor our services to best meet those needs. One example is our audit of a specified element. This audit is less in scope than a traditional audit, but it can provide more value than a review. It can be a great service for a non-profit that cannot afford or doesn’t need a traditional audit


“We have had the pleasure of working with Cox and Associates for more than ten years! During that time, we have come to appreciate the tailored services they provide that reach beyond the annual audit or review; their team genuinely desires to educate and guide our staff. Familiar with the nuances of private schools, their team of CPA's has kept us informed in a rapidly changing tax environment, particularly for nonprofit organizations. As changes occur, their team has made recommendations for procedural modifications since they are familiar with our processes. If you are considering their firm, I highly recommend them. You are not just hiring them for an audit; you are investing in your organization with qualified professionals who routinely go the extra mile for their clients in a very approachable manner.”

“I oversee the day to day operations of Grace International Churches and Ministries. For almost 20 years, Cox and Associates CPA’s has been the auditor of our church association. I could not be more pleased with the audit services they have provided. They serve with accounting integrity, accuracy, and professionalism. To complete the Grace International audit, they must gather financial data from over 100 member churches. They do this and complete the audit under an incredible tight schedule. I give Cox and Associates my highest recommendation.”

“Cynthia and her associates have done our church financials for 23 years. She and her colleagues are professional, yet personable. They are easy to work with and are very knowledgeable in non-profit, and specifically, church financials. She is always willing to answer any questions we may have during the audit process and even during the off season if needed. Her expertise has been invaluable to our organization. If you are in need of a CPA firm for your non-profit organization, I would highly recommend her company. “

For anyone thinking about starting a non-profit, I would recommend they begin the process by talking with Cox and Associates CPAs. Becoming a 501(c)3 seemed like a daunting task, but with Cynthia’s help, it was broken down into parts that we could accomplish. Our non-profit status was granted quickly because it had been prepared so well. Our nonprofit is now 8 years along, and it has grown to encompass much more than we had originally hoped. Through it all, Cynthia and her team are accessible, helpful, and good at keeping us on task for completing all IRS deadlines and requirements. Their relationship with our School goes way beyond what some people experience in their once- a -year tax talks with their CPA.
