Good accounting starts with good bookkeeping, and good bookkeeping starts with ensuring the transactions are accurately recorded as soon as possible. Whether it’s issuing an invoice, tracking a payment, buying a new computer, a restaurant bill, or payroll, regular and ongoing bookkeeping will allow you to keep track of your financial position.

Cloud accounting has advanced and providers such as Xero allow for significant automation of the bookkeeping, which means you have regular access to your financial position and the records to support them. I can help make sure that the information is reliable and relevant to your needs, rather than dropping off a leopard print bag filled with unsorted receipts for your year end. So, no more December or February rush to figure out what your salary or dividends will look like, and no surprises at tax time.

When you work with me to ensure a consistent, incremental approach, you’ll lay the foundation to grow your business and expand. You’ll be able to see the options available, make decisions faster, and then evaluate and adjust your course of action. And because you’re paying a set monthly price, for the level of service you need, I’m not running a clock when you call me, and there won’t be any surprise bills.

If you feel that your bookkeeping, accounting, and tax experience is a roller coaster, and you’d rather take the train, set up a time to chat with me

The Tax Man Cometh

With the Thanksgiving long weekend, I’m thankful to work in a profession with a number of excellent colleagues, and awesome clients who allow me to do so and the trust they place in me.I’m less thankful for the new Canada Revenue Agency Assisted Compliance Initiative which seems to, once again, try to do an end run around the taxpayer/tax preparer relationship. In essence, the CRA will be following up with some taxpayers about aspects of their tax filing. There are no details regarding the criteria about which issue they’re following up on, or who they will be following up with.They…

Stop the Year End Hangover!

One of the great things about being a business owner and having to sort out the running of a business is I get to experience some of the headaches and pains that my clients dealt with when I was an employee. Like paying their taxes. When I started as a baby accountant, we would often get cheques from clients, and then send them on to appropriate CRA tax centre. Of course, we would have to make sure things got sent when they were supposed to, and we sent what was supposed to be sent. Not to mention hanging on to…
