Letter from the Founders
Over the years, we’ve witnessed firsthand the challenges that people face managing their finances to meet their life’s ambitions. We’ve seen many courageously take matters into their own hands by starting a business -- a decision designed to have greater control over finances, work hours, and unlimited potential.
But each business reaches a point where the “money stuff” robs its owner of the autonomy and time they once sought.
That’s where we come in.
We started NowCPA because we believe that owning a business can ultimately enrich your life and unleash your potential. We’ll remove tasks from your plate, take care of your filings, help you understand where you’re really at, and guide you through each "next step" of where you'd like to go.
Because to us, your future is NOW.
We treat you like family and encourage healthy work-life balance for our team and our clients.
