Let Us Help You Reach Your Financial Goals

Our Services


We don’t only minimize your taxes at the year’s end – we strive to minimize your taxes year-round.


We know that any CPA firm can audit financial statements. That is why our assurance team looks beyond the numbers and “basic services.”


We don’t only minimize your taxes at the year’s end – we strive to minimize your taxes year-round.


We see our clients as part of our family. That means we treat your family’s financial considerations with the same respect we treat our own finances.


We understand that every person has a unique mosaic of life that includes, family, interests and dreams.


We have a name for itself in our community based on the process we take clients through in helping them make wise financial and tax decisions.

Personal, Responsible & Dependable Service

We began our firm in 1974 as a small operation that provided tax preparation and consulting advice to members of the Sarasota community. Since day one, our focus has been on delivering quality and personalized guidance – backed by knowledge and experience.

Now, more than four decades later, Cavanaugh & Co is the premier provider of services related to tax, accounting, audit and assurance, family financial planning and more. While our staff, services and locations may have expanded over time, our commitment to serving the Greater Sarasota and Venice communities remains the same.

Our firm is large enough to meet clients’ needs, yet small enough to deliver personal, responsive service.

No cookie-cutter solutions. We create a plan based solely on your specific financial needs and goals.

We built our firm on the steadfast commitment to bringing results to those we serve.

Here at Cavanaugh & Co we do not just see our clients as customers – we see them as family.
