Jeans enter accounting firms

By Anne Gaignaire

Is it the end of brown tights in accountancy? After an encouraging advertising campaign to this end towards the Members of Chartered Professional Accountants a few years ago, one of the major firm in Quebec, PwC, puts an end to its internal dress code. In July, the firm withdrew all clothing requirements for its employees. “We wanted to show that we listen to our employees and we trust them. Clothing is a way of expressing your diversity, showcasing your personality. We observed that casual dress Fridays were very well received, so we decided to make an innovative change in this conservative environment”, explains Nicolas Marcoux, National Managing Partner, Montreal office and major cities of PwC.

PwC claims to be the first major firm of Quebec to take such a measure.

However, in smaller firms, dressing habits are already flexible. “In our firm, style is more casual. Several male employees wear 3-day beards, as it is the current trend these days, blazers often stay on the back of the chair”, observes Thomas McComber, Partner in Lacharité McComber Kuczynski firm which employs 25 people whose average age is around 25 years old, excluding partners. Even if forty-year-old founders have thought to apply a dress code, they quickly gave up on the idea. “It would be difficult to enforce ties among younger people, not having a dress code has proven to be successful. Otherwise, it would negatively affect the people who enjoying the freedom of wearing what they want. When you remove the rule, you remove a thorn at the same time and people take greater responsibility” continues Thomas McComber who observes that the dress code of his employees remains very conventional.

Adapting to the client’s style

The actual rule in the Lacharité McComber Kuczynski firm is adaptation. Because, in today’s modern age,  the suit is still essential with certain clients – often the elderly and conventional –  however, it is not popular everywhere. “We’re working with many technology businesses, in the movie industry or in the arts. Some of these clients tell us to come in our casual wear” says Thomas McComber.

This trend could be well received as the profession needs to freshen up its image. A conservative and conventional dress code reflects a conservative environment. “Today, we need to promote a flexible work environment and to change how people see the accounting profession, often seen as strict and boring. Our decision will make a splash this autumn on campuses. It will differentiate us and improve our image”, ensures Nicolas Marcoux for whom the most important thing is that “our employees represent our brand image and clients feel close to who we are.”

Finding the right tone

An essential trend that all firms are not ready to adopt yet. At least not right now. The Richter firm still has a dress code. “It’s not a rule but we want to ensure that outfits are professional when we meet with clients”, indicates Mindy Mayman, Partner in Richter. Like in many firms, the obligation to wear a tie has already been abandoned but the usual blazer-shirt-trousers for men and suit for women are still prevailing. Except on Fridays, where jeans – without holes – are allowed. “We still expect our collaborators to wear conventional outfits. Some clients have expectations on this matter, affirms Mindy Mayman who doesn’t consider giving up on basic clothing guidelines but remains opened to change if a general trend becomes a reality. Members of Chartered Professional Accountants left it to firms to comment on the subject.

“For now, it hasn’t caused any tension with employees. When we welcome the younger generation of employees to our firm, this conventional dress code will help them adopt the right tone towards clients. It encourages them to pay attention to the way they sit, the way they speak. They know they’re not wearing a pair of jeans, talking to their friends on a couch like they do on the weekends,” continues the partner.

Young people who, generally arrive already dressed according to the most classic standards, perfectly are aware of the tacit rules of this environment.

Lacharité McComber Kuczynski launches a cloud-based bookkeeping service for Canadian Businesses

Montreal, January 22nd, 2015- Lacharité McComber Kuczynski, an independent firm of chartered professional accountants, has announced it is partnering with Sage North America, a leading provider of business management software and services to small and midsized businesses in Canada for more than 30 years; Oriso Solutions Inc., a company specializing in application delivery in the cloud since 2006; and the Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada (IPBC), Canada’s largest bookkeeping association, to offer a unique cloud-based bookkeeping service to Canadian businesses with annual revenues up to $5 million.

The service will consist of a full or partial outsourcing of businesses’ bookkeeping tasks to IPBC Certified Professional Bookkeepers that will use Sage 50 Premium Accounting–Canadian Edition or Sage One–Canadian Edition to record their clients’ transactions. Sage 50 will be hosted on a secure cloud platform in state-of-the-art Canadian data centres, eliminating the need for the firm or their clients to install software locally. Sage One is a cloud-based accounting solution and also requires no software installation.

According to Thomas McComber CPA, CA, co-managing partner of the Montreal accounting firm, “There is a significant need to raise the bar, standardize bookkeeping practices and implement internal controls in small and medium businesses, so Canadian entrepreneurs can mitigate their risks associated with inaccurate financial reporting, misappropriation of business assets, loss or corruption of computerized files and focus on what they do best, expand their businesses.”

“Many smaller organizations are looking for a solution to help them file supporting financial documents, monitor their accounts receivable, accounts payable, work in progress, payroll and inventory accounts, and provide timely financial statements. These businesses typically do not have the financial resources to hire a full-time accountant, and therefore need a cost effective way to outsource this function. We have lined up our favorite accounting software, cloud computing partner along with Certified Professional Bookkeepers  across Canada to fulfill what we like to call Cloudkeeping,” says Geneviève Lacharité, CPA, CA, co-managing partner of the firm.

“Certified Professional Bookkeepers will provide the entrepreneur the expertise needed to assure their bookkeeping and internal controls are at the desired levels needed to have accurate financial information they will need to run their business.  Certified members from the IPBC, must pass a national certification exam, follow a code of conduct and are required to maintain a high level of continuing education credits to keep their designation,” says Louie Prosperi, Chief Executive Officer of the IPBC.  “Partnering up with Lacharité McComber Kuczynski is a perfect fit. Both of our organizations’ goals are in line in providing the small business owner the highest level of financial expertise and service they need to be successful”.

“Moving to the cloud can be daunting and some Canadian small and medium-sized businesses have told us they aren’t completely ready for that. However, they still want anytime, anywhere access to some of their data. At Sage, we have made a concerted effort to offer hybrid cloud solutions that extend the reach of their existing desktop solution so they have the flexibility and reach of the cloud,” says Jennifer Warawa, vice president and general manager of Sage Accountant Solutions. “Partnering with a market leader in the accounting space makes perfect sense as Lacharité McComber Kuczynski’s hybrid cloud model is very similar to that of Sage. Through this partnership, we’ll be able to offer hybrid cloud solutions that will help Canadian SMBs operate more efficiently, no matter their challenge.”

Immigration at the heart of competitiveness – Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal


For the Lacharité McComber Kuczynski professional chartered accounting firm (LMK), a SME in the accounting sector, the attraction and retention of skilled staff has become a major challenge. Founded in 2010, LMK employs ten people and offers various financial statements audit and assurance, tax accounting, and bookkeeping services to entrepreneurs.

Mr Thomas McComber, one of the associate partners, thinks the firm’s greatest challenge is to find the best human resources in a highly competitive environment, where small firms have a harder time attracting talents than bigger ones: “We are not worried for the development of our business. We have more than enough to keep ourselves busy. However, we need a large and strong team to support all our activities.”

For Mrs Geneviève Choinière-Lacharité, associate in LMK, the expertise of their employees is essential to the quality of their services: “Our clients come see us to entrust us with their financial statements. It is an area focussed on quality, rigor and confidentiality. The performance and judgment of our employees are therefore a great concern for us. Our challenge is not only to hire good resources, but also to train them, to instil our corporate culture, and, of course, to retain them. Finding a workforce that fulfills the firm’s needs requires time to recruit and train.”

Successful candidates should not only be passionate and motivated by their profession, but also hold a basic diploma (e.g. a Bachelor of Accounting) and be in the process of obtaining their chartered accountant designation. For the directors of LMK, not having graduated yet or holding a foreign diploma is not an obstacle to employment. Most important is the will to persevere in the area and to stay as long as possible in the firm. In this context, the immigrant workforce is a precious asset. Many of them are skilled and motivated candidates for whom professional experience acquired in Québec is highly valuable.

For LMK, the help and support of organizations that bring closer businesses and job seekers are most relevant. They save time and money during the selection and recruitment of potential candidates with an immigrant background, particularly in crucial periods for the firm. “We resorted for the first time to the Board of Trade’s Interconnexion program in order to fill quickly vacancies at the end of the fiscal year, a busy period in our domain”, says Mr Rafal Kuczynski, a LMK associate.

“When we realized that the Interconnexion program not only preselected candidates and organized meetings between them and employers, but also allowed us to welcome them for four-week trial internships, we immediately adopted it”, adds Mr Kuczynski. For the three associates of the firm, those internships respond to the businesses’ needs, and provide candidates with meaningful experience and references in their domain. It’s a win-win deal.
