About Pi Business Solutions
Who are we?
We are a team of tax professionals on a mission to change your perception of the accounting industry as a whole. The fact is many taxpayers (and small business owners in particular) have been over-charged and/or under-served when it comes to their accounting. We want to change that by providing you high-quality work by an expert advocate whose primary focus will always be your best interests.
Should you be a client?
The truth is we are not for everyone. If you are a business owner, your tax situation is complex and we believe we can do a better job than our competitors, or than you can do yourself. As an individual, your tax circumstance can be complicated. If you have had bad experiences with CRA or other accountants in the past, or if the stress of managing the financial and administrative burden of your taxes has become too much for you to handle, we are here to help you. Is peace of mind important to you?
Let’s start by telling you what evil secrets we don’t have. Contrary to some advice you might of heard, there are no silver bullets, no magic loopholes, and no mythical grey areas in the tax act. Now let us tell you about the evil secrets we do have.
While other companies trivialize the personal tax return, we realize that for many of us, the taxes we pay on our personal returns are the single greatest expense we’ll face over the course of our lifetimes. In light of that fact, we always consider the personal T1 return the cornerstone of your entire tax plan.
The Big Picture
The Big Picture is different for nearly every single taxpayer, and that is one of the things we love about what we do. Finding the essence of what makes you unique is the key to optimizing your tax situation.
The Small Picture
The small details may not require much thought or strategy but we find they are often neglected, overlooked, or ignored. By doing so you might be missing that one piece of the puzzle that can effect your whole tax circumstance. The little things are as important, if not more in some cases then the big obvious elements.

We stand in front of our work.
Whenever we’re not 100% sure about how to deal with certain rare situations that arise (no one knows the entire Tax Act), we will take the time to find out how to complete the work properly. It seems obvious to us that the best possible way to stay out of trouble with CRA and complete your taxes as optimally as possible involves getting it right the first time. Sometimes it’s frustrating, but we would rather delay than get it wrong.
We do our work with the highest possible level of integrity.
This isn’t always easy, because what you want and what CRA wants are usually diametrically opposed. So we focus on making sure your taxes are optimized without doing anything that would come back to haunt us in a subsequent audit. To this end, we avoid certain types of clients. If you’re uncertain about whether you’re on our Avoid List, you probably are; we aren’t going knowingly let you lie or cheat. Ever.
We stand behind our work.
When we do make a mistake that causes you a fine from CRA, we will pay the fine. To be very honest, it’s happened several times, and we just HATE paying them, but when it’s our fault we’re relatively happy to do it, because we feel quite strongly that even though no one is perfect, you shouldn’t have to pay for our mistakes.
