Should You Be A Client?
The truth is we are not for everyone. If you are a business owner your tax situation is inherently complex and we believe we can do a better job than our competitors, or than you can do yourself. 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’re here to help. Is peace of mind important to you?
We can be of most assistance to an incorporated small business with at least 2 employees. These folks need every conceivable service we provide, and have well over a dozen deadlines to manage every year, once you take into account the monthly payroll remittances, T4 and T5 deadlines, GST deadlines, corporate income tax deadline, and the infamous April 30 annual deadline for personal taxes Our business is quite literally designed to help you focus on YOUR business, while we keep the CRA off your back.
Having said that, the majority of the over 500 businesses we already represent have less complicated situations, and we’re just as happy to help them too. So if you have a non-incorporated small business and a serious desire to grow, we can provide the guidance to get you there. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes from KNOWING your taxes are done correctly and optimally for your situation.
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.
