Are you looking for a firm large enough to offer a full array of accounting, taxation, and consulting services, but small enough to know you on a personal level? Then look no further. Irvin, Abrahamson & Company has been serving Silicon Valley and the local community for over 35 years.

"Michael and Bert have been our CPA for over 20 years and has done a great job for us. The IRS has only audited us once and the auditor apologized for wasting our time when he left us with a clean bill of health. We also appreciate the loyalty Michael and Bert have shown us by placing their personal and business insurance with us and referring us customers. Nice guys, great service." ~ Chris Grammar

Airbnb Activities Are Not Covered by Your Homeowner's or Rental Property Policy
Senators Bill Monning and D. Carmel have authorized Senate Bill 1092 (SB 1092), which requires hosting platforms like Home Away and Airbnb, to provide notice to both homeowners and renters alike, cautioning them to check their insurance policy, for any clause(s) that would prevent them from leasing or renting the property. This is applicable especially to homeowners as well as renters (at popular vacation spots), who in turn rent out on sharing an accommodation basis. Both homeowners and renters should check to see whether such activities are permissible as per the law enacted in 2015, or whether there maybe violations of the lease.

Regardless of SB 1092, at Insurance by Allied Brokers, we have a special Airbnb vacation rental policy that will provide adequate cover to both the homeowner and renter. Save yourself from needless worries and call us today, at (650) 324-1142, for a quote. We are open Monday through to Friday. For more details visit us at our website:

Travel Health Insurance a must!
A new survey finds that 60% of homeowners are underinsured.

Your USA health or Medicare insurance doesn’t travel well. Your plan doesn’t cover or severely limits payment for when you’re out of the country.

1. Hospital and Doctor Bills.
2. Air ambulance and air ambulance staff.
3. Emergency and helicopter rescue.

If your plan covers anything it does so on a reimbursement basis. Meaning you pay first and then submit your bills later.

One of our clients had been out $70,000 because they did not buy travel medical insurance. Don’t get trapped in a foreign country due to a medical emergency, call Ron in our office at 650-328-1000 for assistance before your next trip.

Covered California's health plan prices soar
(Client Alert)
Rates for covered California are soaring while preferred providers lists are shrinking. If you have a grandfathered plan thru us keep it as long as you can. The rates will go up slower and the choice of providers is better.

Stanford is no longer accepting ACA plans due to low reimbursement. Group and Grandfathered plans are still accepted.

Obamacare: Covered California's health plan prices soar

Californians who buy coverage through the state's health insurance exchange better get ready for a dose of sticker shock: Average premiums next year will shoot up more than 13 percent statewide -- and could even double that in some parts of Northern California. read full story...
