At Figueroa & Company we believe professionalism in accounting means more than balancing ledgers, summarizing business transactions, and analyzing, verifying and reporting financial results. We believe professionalism means providing personal service to each of our valued clients-on both the individual and the organizational levels. We offer sound business and financial advice in the strictest confidence. We offer financial expertise to help you and your business grow, succeed, and prosper.

A professional financial service provider needs to do more than just balance the books, summarize a business’s transactions and analyze financial results. It needs to provide a service which is tailored to the individual or business needs and provide sound advice and expertise to allow them to develop and expand.
We believe that we have a vision at Figueroa and Co, which sees our role as a confidential but knowledgeable personal adviser in all matters financial.
This vision is the basis for our extensive range of services. We can provide what is needed in a large variety of different industries and will work with you and other businesses to meet your individual needs.

Taxation is always a topic of debate amongst governments, businesses, employees and property owners.

We are always up to date and can advise you of your situation.

- Federal income tax returns
- State franchise report
- State and local tax returns

There are some credit repair businesses that offer a 100 % guarantee that they have the ability to erase bad credit and they are able to generate for clients a credit identity that is perfectly legal. There are also some who claim they have the tools to wipe out bankruptcies, liens, judgments, credit files and bad loans completely. Legally, no one is given the right to remove negative information on someone’s credit report that is true. We only offer advice on credit that is legal and we never make any promises that we are unable to deliver.
The way we pay our employees has altered considerably over the years. Often, the staff in the company office no longer has such an important role, but it has been outsourced to an outside specialist company. This takes the burden off the employer as all pay issues from employees are directed to this team of specialists.
If you are thinking of outsourcing your payroll, we can discuss options with you and arrange a service that suits you best. Modern payroll systems are completely computerized, so clients are kept informed automatically of issues regarding employee pay. Payroll reports are prepared often so that the data can be evaluated quickly in relation to business efficiency. If this is what you think you need, we can provide personalized professional advice and assistance on all payroll matters.
A simple definition of a corporation is an organization or a business that has been initiated by a group of individuals, but the rights and responsibilities are separated from the individuals who are involved. It could be a non-profit organization with the aim of offering beneficial services. It might be a municipal corporation running an urban area or the most common type, a private corporation, whose business is to make profits. If you are thinking of becoming incorporated, then there are various options open to you, which depend on the size of the business and what tax options interest you. We can offer advice and valuable information on Limited Liability Companies, C corporations and S corporations. We don’t use reference books to feed you with information, but can verbally discuss and offer advice on anything that is of concern to you in a language you understand.
Living trusts are a tool that can be used to assist in the management and the holding of property for the duration of a person’s life and then, on their death, distributing it all. If you hold property and are thinking about its future then we can offer you advice and assistance in using a living trust as a way of solving your property concerns.
Our other specializations are bookkeeping, bank reconciliations, taxation, management, compiling financial statements, in-house notary services (licensed for California) real estate and accountancy. Our services are virtually unlimited, so if your interests are not mentioned that doesn’t mean we lack the expertise.
