Why Us?

Good question. Out of all of the bookkeeping companies out there, why should you choose ours? Sure, like every other business owner out there, I know that my business is the greatest business the world has ever seen, but really… If I had to sit down and define what sets us apart?


We have very strict standards here to ensure the consistent quality of your bookkeeping. New bookkeepers go through a rigorous testing process before they are hired, and we support each other with our various strengths. Before we print your financials, we look over your Profit & Loss and Balance Sheet to make sure they make sense.

Experience and Expertise

We’ve been doing this forever, we’re very knowledgeable and we’re good at what we do. We also have practical accounting experience in multiple industries, including but not limited to: professional services, training, management consulting, IT, construction and trades, engineering, medical, not for profit, manufacturing, travel and tourism, law, retail, aerospace and security.


We understand that business owners don’t always keep regular hours. We’re here when you need us and willing to schedule meetings around your availability.

We’ll Take Damn Good Care of You

Our clients are rockstars. Our mission, plain and simple, is to give our clients perfectly balanced books with exceptional client service, while giving you as much value as we can for your bookkeeping dollar. At the end of each accounting period, we do more than just a paper dump. We’ll take the time to explain your financials, in plain language that makes sense to you.

Two Bookkeepers Trained on Every Client File

No more worrying about sick days and vacation time, or not being able to reach the one person who knows your books as well as (or sometimes better than) you do. We cover the costs of training an extra bookkeeper to be familiar with your file so that you’re always covered.

Source Deduction Remittance Reminders

We send out email reminders to our clients on the 12th of each month, reminding them that their payroll source deductions are due.

30% Discount on QuickBooks Software

As QuickBooks Pro Advisors, we’re able to pass on a 30% discount to our clients on their purchases of QuickBooks software through Intuit.

Discounted Boardroom Rental

We rent our boardroom to our clients at 50% off (based on availability). Comfortably seats 10 people and already set up with audio-visual equipment. Need a little more space for that meeting? Hosting an off-site strategic planning session? Give us a call – we’re happy to help by sharing our beautiful space with you.

Free pickup and delivery of your documents (Ottawa and surrounding area)

Because you have better things to do with your time.

Document Storage

We have the space to store your documents should you wish to keep them in our offices, at no charge to you.

Daily Backups

Our server is backed up nightly, to ensure the safety of your company files.
