Are you still sending your paper documents to a bookkeeper then waiting to find out how your business is doing?
Fax machines and Canada Post still work, but would you run your business using them today?
All your accounting records, reports and related documents can be available to you online when and where you need them.
Banking and credit cards can be linked so that you know where you stand on an ongoing basis. Documents can be uploaded and linked to your records eliminating the need to keep cumbersome paper files that only take up unnecessary space.
Time consuming processes can often be automated so that you can spend your time running your business.
If you’re not keeping score you can’t win. So let us help you get in the game!
We don’t just work for you, we work with you.
Our focus is on providing our clients with the services and advice they need.
Although we have a broad range of experience we do not profess to be experts in any one particular area. Our expertise is the knowledge and ability to identify a problem and the wisdom to know when specialized help is required.
We maintain ongoing working relationships with professionals who are specialists in the fields of income tax and sales taxes.
We can either act on your behalf or refer you directly should the need arise.
A full range of accounting, income tax and bookkeeping services are available as well as training and support for both QuickBooks Desktop and Online.
Our services are available on-site or at our office and can be tailored to meet your specific requirements.
One size does not fit everyone.
We combine our past experience and knowledge with the use of today’s technology in all aspects of our business.
Although we maintain a physical office location, we have a virtual office, with secure and controlled access available to us anywhere there is internet access.
This provides us with the ability to access our records and deal with your issues regardless of where we are.
