Our Story

Colin and Eric were friends in high school, and both specialized in accounting. After graduating they worked at rival big corporate firms and learned the ropes. Colin has the technological and practical background, while Eric has entrepreneurial and technical experience.

Now they’ve joined forces to revolutionize the accounting industry and provide a better work-life balance for their employees and clients

Company Lifestyle

Because we use cloud based software for our practice and for all our clients, this allows all our employees the opportunity to work remotely. All our employees have the option of working from home, from a local coffee shop, from their cottage or to drop by the office. Using video conferencing to keep in touch with clients allows for quick, convenient and impactful communication. We work really hard! But we also like to enjoy life too! (Just like you)
