Warren Averett is one of the largest accounting firms in the Southeast, as well as one of the largest accounting firms in the Gulf Coast region. The CPAs in our accounting firm’s Fort Walton Beach office, near by the Shalimar community, are knowledgeable of and invested the Okaloosa County business climate, but they are also part of a much larger network of over 800 employees in Florida, Alabama and Georgia. We believe that this approach (combining local insight of a local Shalimar CPA firm with depth of knowledge and experience of a much larger CPA firm) maximizes the resources and experience of our clients.
