Our History

First established in Brooklyn, New York in January 1990, as ARCO financial services, then opened its first office in Staten Island, New York, February 4th 1999 after purchasing our first building. Initially started servicing individuals and clients in the construction industry, expanded into the automobile industry, and then became experts in the real estate industry. The expert strategies were developed by Mr. Arlia directly through his personal in depth knowledge of owning, managing and strategizing over 20 properties of his own in the Brooklyn, Staten Island, and New Jersey areas. This recognition expanded the real estate consulting and tax strategy division to having over 100 clients in real estate management and development. In 2008 ARCO Financial services became Arlia & Associates. Arlia & Associates went from a New York based accounting firm to a national servicing firm which expanded into servicing international clients with real estate and tax strategies. The firm over the past 30 years has developed and become expert in all aspects of accounting services. We have prided ourselves on servicing each and every client as if they were our only one. In 2015 we opened our second office in Clearwater, Florida and by 2019 we purchased our first building in Clearwater, FL and continued to expand our services and client base.
