Most CPAs and accounting firms provide a range of services, from assisting with monthly bookkeeping and payroll processing/payroll taxes, to taxes and audit representation. If a firm has several professionals, they will probably specialize. If you are looking for an all-in-one firm, a CPA is better than an accountant, because CPAs are qualified to do more, including representing you at CRA audits.

Versatile accounting & Tax provides the CFO package for your business so that you can focus on building your business and we can take care of your numbers.

No one likes buying something without first knowing how much it’s going to cost, and we don’t think that you would either. This is why we strive for transparency in our billing process. We will come to an agreement with you on our fees in advance of the commencement of our work. If issues arise that were not contemplated in our original discussions, we will discuss those issues with you as they arise and agree on any associated fees. The result will be a no surprise final billing.

Our approach on any service, in addition to the accounting and annual tax compliance, is to get an agreement with you on scope, timing, and anticipated costs before each particular assignment. Any special services would be subject to pre-approval by you. We do not have a standard fee agreement for this type of work, as the scope of what is required can vary greatly. Please note that we are committed to providing competitive fees and complete transparency, as we strive for what we hope will be a long-term professional relationship with each of our clients.
