Have a great idea for a business? Need an injection of cash into your current business? Having opened two businesses, I have the experience to plan a business from the ground up. Working with business owners over my career has given me the opportunity to see the many stages a business goes through, from start-up to growth and down-sizing to closure.
My experiences can help you map your business idea to receive the funding you need to start or grow your business.
Tax is one of the most complex and challenging aspects of accounting. I take a pre-emptive approach with tax planning services, identifying opportunities to protect your earnings and safeguard your assets. My clients receive a full-service solution for their personal and corporate needs.
When it comes to tax advice, we all look to be in compliance while maximizing tax breaks whether you’re an individual, business owner, or corporation.
Letters from the CRA? Late filings? I can help. If you have received correspondence from the CRA or have not filed taxes in previous years and need to catch up, me for expert help.
