The Value of Our Services
You might be anywhere along the path to better business. Maybe you’re at the starting line or maybe you’ve gone around the board a few times. But unlike a game, your business is very real and the stakes are high. It’s more than your livelihood. It’s your passion and your dream.
Ashby Chartered Professional Accountant only caters to small businesses. There’s no bias and no client too small. That’s why every client gets star treatment. We won’t shift our efforts to impress the big guys! Because every client is valued the same, which means you are guaranteed the same level of quality customer service no matter who you are.
We work with people in all industries, so we have a vast array of resources and networks to ensure that all our clients’ needs are being met.
We’ll also act as housekeepers, to make sure that your finances are in order and that they’re being properly managed. We keep in touch not just at year-end, but all throughout. We hold meetings in advance of the year-end season, as well as mid-year phone calls to check in with business owners and to answer any questions they may have.
With our background in teaching and coaching, we will teach you how to hone your own accounting superpowers. And if you’re new to small business and not sure where to start, we can help with your start-up as well. See our sections down below…
We want to bring Accounting Excellence within the reach of every client, no matter how experienced or how new.
Starting a New Business?
This Section Will Give You a Head’s Up on What You Will Need.
There are so many things to consider when starting your own business.
Should you incorporate? How will you keep track of your day to day accounting? What does this entail? What are your obligations when it comes to business taxes? And what are the rules surrounding them? It can be confusing when they’re always shifting and changing.
There are other aspects to consider such as GST returns, processing payroll returns like T4s, dividend forms (T5s) and more.
Not only that. What accounting software will you use? Will you require training or do you want to hire someone?
Then, there are the costs related to such things as bookkeeping and taxes. How do you know what services you will need? That’s where the Ashby Team comes in!
We can help you understand your options. We can assist you when it comes to taxes, or with day to day processes such as payroll and other various areas in bookkeeping.
And with our established network of trusted colleagues, if there’s a service you need that we don’t immediately offer, we will help you get in touch with the professionals you require, from marketing and legal advice, to things such as website design.
Already Operating a Small Business?
This Section Can Move You from ‘Good’ to ‘Golden’
If you’re already an established business, you might have a good handle on the basics of accounting and bookkeeping, but could you be doing more? Or rather, could you be working smarter, instead of harder?
We can dive into the numbers and help you understand the information that is needed for a complete year end Compilation Engagement. Not sure what that is? We can help with that too!
We can also help you determine if you would benefit more from a Review Engagement? We can explain what that involves and what the advantages are.
Maybe you want to expand or grow? We can advise you on what you will require to make that happen, as well as provide valuable insight through our examination of your accounting and bookkeeping.
We can also save you money. With an expert as your guide, we can make sure that you take advantage of all available income tax breaks and credits by planning ahead, so that at the end of the day, there’s more money in your pocket to invest back into your business.

The importance of good bookkeeping cannot be understated. It helps you obtain the most current and relevant information on which to base your day to day business decisions. Not only that. When it comes to year end, it is essential to have the right information. An accountant will need it to help you minimize year end costs and if you don’t do it, your accountant must, which could wind up costing you more in the long-run. It’s also a matter of protection. To avoid audits, interest and penalty assessments, you must have the right information to file GST and payroll remittances.
