Get To Know Us


The Hurst Company was established in 1996 as a full-service certified public accounting and consulting firm. We are licensed in Florida and Georgia and bring a unique blend of personalities, talents, abilities and expertise to serve our clients in a wide variety of industries. Our success and reputation for excellence has been meticulously built over the years by understanding the unique elements of our clients' business and financial needs. We provide the highest level of careful, individualized attention to our clients and their stakeholders.

We have studied the tax effects of proposed transactions, consulted on retirement planning, designed executive compensation programs, assisted in structuring international operations, and represented clients in their dealings with the Internal Revenue Service and other state taxing authorities.  We have also helped implement gifting programs and worked with clients to analyze their retirement needs and estate plans.

All Certified Public Accountants at The Hurst Company are proud members of the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants (FICPA) and American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).  Our firm is a registered Tax Agent in the United Kingdom, allowing us to file Self Assessments on behalf of our clients.

The Hurst Company is an award-winning firm, having been recognized by the Fernandina Beach News-Leader for being the Best of the Best Accounting Firm for 2007 through 2011, and we were named the Small Business of the Year by the Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber of Commerce in 2011.  In addition, our firm was one of only a handful of businesses to be selected for the Bulldog 100: Fastest Growing Bulldog Businesses, an annual program that awards elect businesses owned or operated by UGA Alumni, for three consecutive years (2010, 2011, and 2012).  We’ve also been named in the “Top CPA Firms” by the Jacksonville Business Journal every year since 2013.    

Perhaps even more important, however, is our investment in our local community.  The Hurst Company is an active member of the Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber of Commerce and an investor with the Nassau County Economic Development Board.  We encourage our team members to participate in community events and hold leadership positions with local civic organizations.
