Our clients benefit from the strength of a unified team of advisors in tax, accounting, financial advisory, risk advisory, and consulting services. Drawing on the wisdom of our combined experiences, we will work diligently to keep you informed of new opportunities and risks. Operating without the conflicts and hierarchies present in many larger firms ensures you receive responsive issue resolution and a nimble adaptation to changing needs.

Founded over 3 decades ago, Cannon Tax & Accounting has evolved into a second generation full service accounting and boutique financial consulting firm which provides custom financial solutions for their clients primarily in and around the southeast.

Founder, Edward H. Cannon, long ago envisioned an independent firm which would provide truly custom, needs based solutions for his clients.  As an early pioneer, Cannon identified the need and the benefit of providing both tax accounting and independent financial advice thus serving every aspect of his client’s financial lives.

The firm has evolved over the years to include additional family members and other dedicated team members who add personal experience, specialized talents and unique perspectives.  As a family based firm, Cannon Advisors is renowned for their straight forward advice and close personal touch.

For nearly 35 years, we've strived to know our clients – their needs, priorities, goals and aspirations.  Our team of dedicated specialists then uses this information to design unbiased, custom solutions to help pursue these personal goals for each and every client.
