FINANCIAL STATEMENT COMPILATIONS
Whether you run a corporation, operate as a proprietorship, or even a partnership, you will need financial statements.
Financial statements are the starting point for the various tax returns. We review your accounting data to ensure that your numbers make sense.
Then we use that accounting data to prepare a set of financial statements for you.
Your financial statements may need a formal statement of assurance that they are plausible for the bank or some other party. We’ll work with you to prepare a review engagement report for your financial statements.
A review is useful when a company does not need audited financial statements, but management or third parties like banks, granting agencies, and so on, want some assurance that the financial statements are plausible. We review financial statements in accordance with established professional standards.
Audits differ from reviews and compilations, as they are intensive examinations of your company’s systems and records, providing the highest level of assurance.
Our objective in an audit is to express an opinion on the financial statements, providing reasonable assurance that the entity’s financial statements are presented fairly in accordance with the applicable financial reporting framework.
Audits are conducted in accordance with Canadian Auditing Standards.
You may want to focus your time on running the business, leaving the bookkeeping to us. Or, you may want to be involved in part or even control the whole process.
Either way, we use world class cloud-based accounting software and other digital tools to automate and digitize the process. No more shoe boxes and no more stacks of paper.
We work with you to ensure that your business and your financial goals are aligned. Be it the right balance of salary, bonus, or dividends, or, by helping you to determine the ideal business structure, planning your RRSP contributions or optimizing your deductions.
We work with you, and for you, to minimize your income tax liability wherever possible, and within the law.
Whether you operate as a proprietorship, a partnership or a corporation, you need to file the appropriate income tax return after the fiscal year end.
Once we have reviewed your accounting data and prepared the financial statements, we will prepare your income tax returns and other necessary compliance documentation.
If you’re registered for GST/HST, you’ll be filing returns.
Whether you’re preparing your own books or have us managing the process, we review and file your GST/HST returns each period to ensure that they are filed accurately and on time.
You may have reached the end of your career or you have accumulated wealth in a corporation.
Now it’s time to get that wealth into your hands. We will help you to develop a strategy to get that wealth into your hands in the most tax efficient manner possible.
Even if you don’t live in Canada, you might still have a business or real estate in the area and subject to Canadian tax laws.
We can help you understand the laws, your obligations under them, and what options are available to you.
We will also prepare the correct tax returns for you.
