We provide knowledgeable bookkeepers to address your specific needs, no matter where you are, so you can know where your business is heading and can make important decisions that will increase your bottom line. Our bookkeepers are certified by the Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada (IPBC) and as such must comply with a continuing education program and have successfully passed a national standardized exam and obtained certification. We are committed to providing the best group of bookkeepers to deliver reliable financial information and advisory services anywhere in Canada. We go even further, having skilled Certified Professional Accountant’s, bound by the rules of professional conduct set out by the Canadian Institute of Professional Chartered Accountants, on staff, to answer tough accounting questions, resolve issues and review the bookkeeping entries for quality and accuracy.
Our virtual bookkeeping services are priced at a fraction of the cost of conventional in-house bookkeeping which is made possible through streamlined standardized process and systems offered through the cloud. Most business owners do not know what it actually costs to have an employee do their bookkeeping. The cost of a bookkeeper is the sum of the bookkeeper’s wage and overhead costs. Overhead costs not only include benefits and office costs, but also costs associated with errors, the time it takes to hire, train, supervise, and provide back-up for time off. Businesses can incur 1.5 times the hourly cost of the bookkeeper for overhead related costs for bookkeeping. All of those costs are eliminated with outsourced bookkeeping, thereby costing less than an in-house employee.
Fraud committed in SME businesses are almost always done by an inside bookkeeper. We design accounting systems to protect your information, with complete checks and balances. Although no internal controls are foolproof, having our system in place allows business owners to greatly mitigate the risks associated with misappropriation or theft of business assets.
