Our team at Pacific CPA Chartered Professional Accountants delivers quality service to clients all across Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland. We take pride in being an innovative general practice CPA firm.
With the rate of technological advancement, the world around us is ever-changing and that includes our profession. For generations, the primary role of an accountant has been to complete compliance–based work such as mandated company audits and income tax filings. We believe the status quo of the traditional accounting services is no longer enough. Today’s taxpayers and businesses should be seeking the services of accounting firms that offer true value-add advisory services.
We invest time and resources into adopting today’s leading technologies to better assist our clients. We view technology as a tool that enables us to improve productivity and efficiency that can be passed down as cost savings to our clients. As it stands today, technology has not replaced the critical thinking and analysis capabilities of a well–trained Chartered Professional Accountant. As such, there are plenty of opportunities for us to add value while saving you time and money!
By integrating the tried and true methods of accounting with modern technology our CPA firm is able to deliver personalized solutions for you and your business. A true best of both worlds scenario.
We respect our firm’s history and the traditions of our industry. But we feel it’s okay to be different. We are more than grey suits and plaid shirts. At Pacific CPA, we recognize that each individual and business is unique and a one-size–fits–all approach generally doesn’t work.
We believe you are successful in life or in business because you are different. With this understanding, we take the time to get to know you, your business and its unique requirements. After all, how can we offer a solution without investing the necessary time to understand your needs?
Step 1: Let’s Connect!
Let’s book a complimentary one hour introductory in person, telephone, or video conference meeting with one of our partners or senior associates. During this meeting, you will learn more about us and our approach to determine if we are the right fit for you or your business.
Step 2: Become a Client
Once we have a better understanding of your unique requirements, we will provide you with our service plan options and recommend a solution that fits your current needs and budget. Once the plan has been selected, we will issue the following documents for electronic signature:
CRA Authorization form (RC59)
The Canada Revenue Agency requires your permission before they will deal through us as your representative. This business consent letter gives our firm permission to file your returns on your behalf, view and update your information with CRA pertaining to your corporate, GST, and payroll program accounts.
Depending on the service plan selected, you will be issued one of the following:
- Retainer Invoice: This is intended to cover a portion of the expected final invoice. Payment of this invoice will be required prior to work commencement on your file.
- Pre-authorized debit/credit agreement: For your convenience we offer monthly payment plans via pre-authorized payment plan agreements.
Personal Tax Returns:
CRA Authorization form (T1013)
The Canada Revenue Agency requires your permission before they will deal through us as your representative. This authorization form gives our firm permission to file your returns on your behalf as well as view and update your tax information with CRA.
Step 3: Communicate
Relationships require trust, but we understand that trust is earned not given. As a result, we want to be as open and transparent as possible about our fees and the services we deliver. We do our best to avoid any unwanted surprises.
Step 4: Deliver
It’s simple: we do what we say we’re going to do when we say we’ll do it. We don’t just want you to be satisfied; we want to provide you with so much value that you look forward to seeing us! By combining our innovative approach with the knowledge of our experienced staff and today’s leading technology solutions, we are uniquely positioned to take care of your accounting, tax, and business advisory needs. Let us take care of the numbers so you can focus on growing your business.
