We know that our real value to you is being involved with you as you make important decisions all year long, not just at tax time. Bottom line . . . we will partner with you as trusted financial advisors to help save you time, money, and improve efficiencies.


We work with business owners, high net-worth individuals, and entrepreneurs in various industries from law, entertainment, real estate, healthcare, restaurant, technology, etc.

Unlike most professional service firms, we emphasize project-based when it comes to billing. Rather than charging our clients by the hour, our advisors take the time to understand the scope of the work and determine a fixed fee based on the value the client is receiving. You can have confidence in knowing the price of your work has already been determined even if more hours are spent than estimated on the project.

Tax returns, bookkeeping, fractional CFO, consulting, etc. Each of these separate services are considered independent projects.

No. At CAPATA, we have a three-tiered review system. This ensures that there are multiple sets of professional eyes reviewing the work being done for accuracy and efficiency.

Our headquarters are in Orange County, CA; however, we have clients all over the United States.

Mitch Fisher

I’ve worked with many advisors and consultants over the years and CAPATA has stood out. Their loyalty while we built our business from nothing shows their ability to recognize potential, to have a vision for the future, and to serve as a guide during growth. People like this are rare—and that’s why we’ve remained faithful with Kevin and the rest of the CAPATA team.

Dale Partridge

Gary Capata is not only honest but a brilliant tax strategist with the client's interest as a priority to his time. I have been with CAPATA since 1980 and have been totally satisfied.

account review

Gary and his team have worked hard for us each year to help prepare our complicated taxes, and have advised us with their brilliant knowledge of changing tax laws. Gary and his team have consistently shown us incredible patience, good humor, and integrity when my wife and I have been desperate to find our paperwork in time and needed help and, yes, comfort. They always came through.
