I qualified as a CA with an international accounting firm noted for their expertise with small business after completing my Master’s degree in Business Administration from York University. My focus was primarily on serving the needs of self-employed professionals and owner-managed or closely held manufacturing and distribution companies, and the special challenges and opportunities that they presented.
Throughout my 20 plus years of experience, communication has always been key. Discussing current tax strategies and planning, results in a greater understanding of the situation from both sides and often leads to potential tax planning initiatives and opportunities to reduce taxes and maximize shareholder value.
Since 2001, I have been in private practice serving clients in a broad range of industries and revenues. GBA was established to offer comprehensive services in accounting, tax, and management consulting specifically focused on the needs of entrepreneurs and professionals.
Current clients include engagements involving representing corporate and personal clients undergoing Canada Revenue Agency audits, specialty tax work with both professionals and large corporate clients, as well as regular tax planning and compliance with individuals and corporate clients.
I lived in Georgetown for 17 years with my wife and we have recently downsized our house and moved to beautiful Rockwood. We are proud parents of 2 grown children who are working in careers that they are passionate about. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, travel/cruising, reading and photography.
