We are a blue-collar Chartered Professional Accountant firm based in Red Deer serving Central Alberta communities like yours and even clients as far away as Calgary, Edmonton, and even outside Alberta in BC, SK, MB, ON, NS, and even Australia all from our office in Red Deer.
There is a difference between a tax planner and a tax preparer. We prefer to take a proactive vs. reactive approach to tax services. By keeping current on new tax laws and legislation, we are in a position to identify key tax planning opportunities that minimize both your current and future tax liabilities, or what we like to call "tax optimization."
It isn't just about saving you on your income tax for this year, but rather for many years. Sometimes coming up with a long-term strategy can help you keep your taxes low overall, rather than just for one year.
You don't need to wait until tax season to meet with us. We provide our individual and business clients with the taxation expertise and knowledge that they deserve throughout the year. Or, if you don't live close by, you can always set up a conference call and use our toll-free number.
In fact, there are many clients that we sometimes rarely see because they don't live anywhere near Red Deer. To that extent, if you want to know what communities our clients come from, and see if your community is on the current list (or if we need to add it), check out our most recent Interactive Map from this past tax season.
We assist our clients in accumulating wealth by improving business processes and through tax optimization strategies.
We encourage you to read the testimonials on our Firm Profile page to give you a better idea how others feel about our services. We encourage feedback, its the only way for us to serve you better, please click on the comments link on the top right corner to mention a suggestion, or refer a friend.

We actually send everyone that books an appointment a copy of our price list. We pride ourselves on openness and transparency. In fact, if you look on our Facebook page, you'll find this year's personal tax prices. There are no hidden surprises here.
