Accurate Record Keeping

The Key to a Successful Business

There are two mindsets about bookkeeping.

“I have to do this to file my GST and taxes,” and “I want to know how my business is doing and how to make it better.”  

We have the experience to help you with both!

By efficiently and methodically organizing your receipts and bills, we provide you with accurate, up to date financial information to allow you to focus on your business.

A Wealth of Knowledge

Practical Advice You Can Count On

Many clients dislike dealing with organizing and keeping track of receipts and bills, so I encourage them to use “shoebox bookkeeping.”

  • Put a shoebox by the door. 
  • Empty pockets, wallets, and vehicles of receipts. 
    • Put them into the shoebox.
  • Open the mail, pay the bills. 
    • Put them into the shoebox.

Receipts, bills, and statements are all there, in semi chronological order, ready for me to organize.

Easy, stress free and no scrounging or missing paperwork.


“All client files are interesting to me; though I really appreciate the more complicated files so I can learn something new and stimulate my problem-solving skills.”
