Delegate your bookkeeping and spend your time doing something you actually want to be doing!
Whether you are in the market for a full-service bookkeeper, or simply someone to support your current bookkeeper, allow our experienced team to take all the mundane tasks off your hands, allowing you can focus on doing what you are best.
Maintaining proper records takes time and effort.
Bookkeeping is an essential step in the accounting cycle, and the users of this information are expecting a level accuracy. You need proper figures to make important decisions, Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) requires it to support the figures reported at the end of year, investors need to be able to trust the financial information, etc.
So many potential costs and missed opportunities when a business’ bookkeeping is poorly kept.
Save yourself the stress and meet your new bookkeeping team leader:
Watching Natalie in action is like taking in a one-woman Cirque Du Soleil show. This firecracker can do anything and does it with style, wowing staff and clients with her precise attention to detail and project management skills.
Natalie started her career working as a Health Care Aide. After working at the University of Manitoba, she came to T&A in 2015. Her passion is to help people grow, which is evident in all she does, especially how she pours into the lives of her husband and kids.
Natalie is a miner for original music and enjoys board games and exploring new territories on foot. Natalie hopes to travel Canada coast-to-coast one day (but if she plans to do this by foot we’re not letting her go as to not put the firm at risk being without her that long). Fun Fact: Natalie once had a pet bear cub named Trapper.
The staff has always gone above and beyond for us, both personally and for our business needs.
Have referred more than one friend and we will keep going back!

How we can help you
We’re a teaching firm. We enjoy sharing our knowledge with our clients and helping new people interested in accounting grow in this field.

We offer the full cycle explained above, on occasion we alter the format depending on the needs of your business. This process starts by completing our questionnaire or by booking an appointment with us.

Dedicated to whatever he puts his mind to, Tyler is a self-starter who begins each 7 am morning with toast and Nutella. While he enjoys watching a great deal of sports, his personal favorite being hockey, he does believe soccer is ‘criminally underrated’ and particularly enjoys the lack of commercials and the great fan culture around the sport. Between attending the University of Manitoba and previous summer retail jobs, he focused his professional studies in Economics. His personal studies turned toward teaching himself Japanese and his biggest regret is not speaking the language nearly enough. He cites the process of learning like ‘reading a book on how to build a log cabin from the ground up before ever picking up a hammer’. In his free time, he enjoys watching YouTube and playing video games on PC and Nintendo. A fan of the Mega Man Battle Network games on GBA, he enjoys all sorts of games depending on his mood. One day he wants to go on vacation to another country that doesn’t primarily speak English, with his top pick being a vacation to Japan. He most admires his mom for being one of the hardest working people he knows.
