    Your accountant will help guide you to avoid any pitfalls that many new small businesses make when starting a new business. Preparations on methodical business planning to clarify mangement, marketing, and financial planning will be provided to develop a successful start for your business.


    The establishment of your business will have great impact on taxes and operating flexibility.

    Non-profit Organization

    We can help you setup and maintain your non-profit organization's tax-exempt status by handling all the IRS reporting for you.
    Each year the IRS requires most tax-exempt organizations to submit the Form 990 and its relations, which includes the following items.

    Operating Agreement/ By Laws

    Standard Operating Agreement / By-laws that describe the operating rules of your business.

    Permit & License

    A California seller’s permit is required by any business that intends to sell tangible personal property that should be taxed at retail — a sales tax.


    Thorough tax planning, whether for yourself or your business, is the most effective way to limit the negative impact of taxes in your life. If something has been properly accounted for in advance, it is unlikely to pose much of a problem or become a burden when the time comes.

    We stress planning to minimize, defer and, if possible, eliminate Federal, state and local taxes; to take advantage of all available tax incentives; to avoid the penalty provisions of the tax laws; and to avoid loss of tax credits or other carryovers.

    We conduct reviews of existing compensation packages including fringe benefits and retirement plans to see that the company is getting the most for its money, and is prepared for changes in ownership in the event of redemptions, liquidations, mergers and acquisitions.

    Business tax returns

    Corporate tax issues can be complex, especially with the ever-changing legislative landscape. To cut through the complexity of tax compliance, we proactively examine legislative changes to determine how they will impact our corporate clients. We also partner with our clients and encourage them to contact us before making large-scale decisions, to consider potential economic and tax consequences.

    Generate a income statement (P&L) & balance sheet

    Our team has more than 20 years of experience serving as a personal CFO and advisor to entertainment professionals and other high-net-worth individuals who have a desire to focus on their own profession and insist that their business matters receive the same level of attention and expertise.

We provide ongoing education as regulations and public perceptions change. We are trusted advisors for management and boards. External auditors can be confident in our work and its results.

    Audit of Financial Statements

    We approach to auditing your financial statements begins with obtaining a thorough understanding of your business and industry, including your internal controls, and ends with the expression of an opinion as to whether the financial statements are presented fairly in all material respects. As a part of this process, we identify and assess the risks which may cause your financial statements to be materially misstated and develop our audit strategy in response to those risks.

    IRS Audit Defense

    Small businesses and individuals can be subject to an IRS (Internal Revenue Service) audit at any time. California residents can also be subject to an FTB (Franchise Tax Board) audit. Both Federal and California laws can be arcane and very difficult to navigate without an expert accounting firm (CPA firm) familiar with taxes.
