Assurance Services (Audit and Review)



Generally, an audit aims to add credibility to an organization's financial reporting.

Typically, audits are recommended or mandated if:

  • There is a requirement from your bank or creditors
  • A regulatory party requests audited statements
  • A funding agency requests audited statements


While audits aim to ensure the fair and accurate representation of financial information for owners and third parties, a review provides those same individuals with what is known as "limited assurance". Review engagements can provide some assurance to businesses and organizations in a more cost-effective manner than an audit.


Organizations may use review engagement services if they are heavily reliant on external financing. 



Notice to Reader Services

Notice to reader financial statements are the most basic and cost-effective means of reporting on a client's financial information and provide little assurance on the financial information.


Notice to reader financial statements are useful for internal purposes and are recommended if:

  • You are a sole proprietor or a small business entity
  • You require financial statements strictly for income tax purposes
  • Your financial reporting needs are very limited



Taxation Services

The firm has been built with a strong focus on meeting the taxation needs of small to medium sized businesses and personal tax clients. We focus on providing taxation advice that is relevant to our clients' situations and staying up to date on current tax law. Our tax services include personal and corporate tax preparation and planning, corporate reorganization, estate planning, HST preparation and compliance.



Bookkeeping Services

For many small businesses, external bookkeeping tends to be more cost effective because it enables business owners to forego the costs associated with staffing a full or part time bookkeeping staff. 


Our bookkeeping services include:

  • Preparation of monthly or quarterly internal financial statements
  • Accounts payable/receivable
  • Bank and credit card reconciliations
  • Government reporting
  • Ledger and journal preparation
