Our story as T&V began over a decade ago, when we joined our predecessor firm, SRH Financial Consultants, Inc, as staff accountants. At the time, the firm already had an established track record of over two decades, but some of the processes and technology had become dated. Entrepreneurs at heart, we set out to build upon the foundation that had been laid. The next several years were spent improving and streamlining the client experience, with each of us subsequently becoming partners in the firm. Finally, at the end of 2017, we successfully bought our former partner out of the business and formally transitioned the firm to Tehrani & Velez, LLP.
We believe in building scalable and sellable businesses that generate positive cash flow and equity. We believe that, in business, people come first. We believe in direct investments in real estate. We believe in employee benefits and company-sponsored retirement plans. We believe in technology as an accelerator, but not as a foundation. We believe every business is a family business.
Our expertise serving Southern California business owners with accounting and tax service is unmatched. We have professionals fluent in English, Spanish, and Mandarin.
