Alka Financial

Alka Financial is a little bit like a bowl of gumbo... a unique New Orleans experience with some traditional ingredients and a few surprises! We put the easy in "The Big Easy" when it comes to financial services. Starting early in the year, we specialize in tax planning, which is far deeper than tax preparation. While our services are available virtually, we prefer for you to come on down to really feel our charm. After tax season and our fair share of king cake, we continue the relationship throughout the year as a financial advising firm. Things like retirement plans, help saving for a home, or even a college fund to get your lazy kid off the couch! Recognized as one of the most diverse firms in New Orleans, we speak FIVE languages in house: English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, and Creole! That means we put financial literacy in a language anyone can understand. No fancy lingo, just real people, and real experiences. Our advisor team has more credentials than a Men in Black agent! Some credentials include: Certified Financial Planner, Certified Public Accountant, Enrolled Agent, Certified Financial Education Instructor, Uniform Investment Advisor, and more! Alka Financial is a Black-Owned, Veteran-Owned and Locally-Owned firm. Our core values are family, community and education. Our mission is to build generational wealth for marginalized communities, make financial literacy more accessible and affordable, and to build lasting relationships with our members. Here you will never have to yell "SPEAK TO A REPRESENTATIVE" to get a question answered. In fact, give me a call personally at the number listed! -A.B. President, CFO

What do you love most about your job?

We love the look on people's face when it finally clicks! When that light goes off and we hear the iconic, "ohhhhhh" our job is complete... or rather, just beginning.

What inspired you to start your own business?

My father immigrated to this country from a dirt road village in Nigeria. My mother grew up in the projects of New Orleans. Both were the first in our entire family to earn college diplomas.

Broadly speaking, the higher your income and the more sources of income you have, the higher the fee is likely to be.

Your professional tax accountant will be able to advise you on the full range of options available and what is most suitable for you. Use Bark to get free quotes and get in touch with local tax accountants today.

There are a number of factors that are worth considering when choosing your tax accountant. These include:

  • Professional qualifications - You should check that they have completed relevant qualifications which are regulated by their professional body. In addition, they should be keeping their skills and knowledge up to date through continuing professional development. They are also required to hold Professional Indemnity Insurance.

  • Invest time - Invest time in finding the right adviser. Research their websites and meet those on your shortlist. When you meet them decide if they are approachable and understand businesses of your size and in your sector. It is helpful if they have expertise in particular areas of tax that you require advice for. Find out if they provide services that you may need now and in the future.

  • First meeting - Check in advance whether the first meeting is free of charge.

  • Charges - Establish the basis of fees and when they will be payable. Ask for an estimate and check what is included such as additional charges for other services (e.g. VAT, Payroll). You may be able to minimise charges by doing some work yourself and by using a compatible accounting package.

  • Terms of engagement - You should receive a letter setting out what your adviser will and will not do for you in the terms of the engagement.

  • Keeping them informed - You should keep your adviser informed of any changes in your business or personal circumstances. Plus, you should seek their advice in advance if you are considering retiring, selling or giving away an interest in your business or a significant asset.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local tax accountants listed will give you a reliable and professional service.
