About Professional Fees

One of the most common questions we receive is “How much do you charge?”

It’s always difficult to answer because our fees are based on the time spent and complexity of the work performed. This makes is difficult to provide a quote over the phone without understand your needs and the complete picture.

Our fees are comparable to other professional accountants (CPA, CA, CGA, CMA). You can always find low-cost tax providers, particularly during tax season. However, non-designated providers to not have the resources, training or skills to keep appraised of tax changes and developments.

What might save you a few dollars in fees could cost you thousands in lost tax benefits and integrated advice!

We follow a structured and methodical process and at the same time, we have the skills and experience to also see what’s not there! As a professional accountant and financial planner I offer you comprehensive advice backed by years of professional training and experience.
