Bookkeeping is a critical part of a successful business.

You need to know exactly how your business is performing in order to make informed business decisions. Without proper bookkeeping practices you could find yourself making decisions that actually hinder your business, and find yourself in trouble with Canada Revenue Agency.

The team at Joseph Truscott Chartered Accountant can take the worry and hassle of bookkeeping out of your hands and free up your time for what you do best – running your business. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your financial records are in order. For as little as $150 a month you can drop off all your invoices, paid cheques and bank statements to our office. Our team will write up your accounting records, deal with the HST & PST returns, T4s and Workers’ Comp issues and provide you with a detailed monthly financial statement which gives you an accurate picture of how your business is doing.
