Am I not handing over my profit working with you?
No, Our pricing model and process have been designed to allow you to retain 20% to 40% of your profit margin. We have found a way to commoditize and created highly efficient financial reporting processes that align our price with your cost of hiring, equipping and outfitting (with software and office space) your employees.
Where does my file get prepared?
We operate out of Calgary, Alberta and we guarantee that your data stays in Canada. Many of our competition has established similar services but rely on labor markets like India or the Philippines. While these may be capable employement sources, regulation of data management is often more lax and less regulated compared to Canada.
Who prepares the files?
The files are prepared by CPA's with Canadian experience in NTR and T2 preparation. We utilize CPA's, CPA students and non designated accountants and train them internally to our workflow requirements.
How do we communicate?
Once a manager is assigned to your file, the manager becomes your point of contact. The communication may occur over through our workflow software and over the phone where required.
Can I meet with your team in person?
Yes, we operate locally for that reason and our state of the art facility has great meeting rooms in which we will gladly host meetings to ensure efficient preparation of your files. In an effort to keep costs down we do ask that you come see us.
