I'm a semi-retired Canadian CPA. A sample of the areas in which I can help are:
Mentorship & CFO
-You have a problem and have nobody to ask who has been self-employed.
- You need to know if your accountant is on the right track or if you are getting the right engagement for what you need.
-You don’t understand the engagement you have or don’t understand the tax return.
-You want to know how to read financial statements.
-Personal tax preparation (Canadian and US)– small and large, self-employment, death, rentals and just about everything else.
-You aren’t sure how Income Tax works on a small business.
-You’re wondering if you should be incorporated.
- You’re wondering what incorporation is.
Coaching & Consulting
-You are not sure how to look for a job.
-Your business doesn’t seem to be taking off and if you could just bounce ideas off someone you know this could go further.
-You are getting volumes of email and need to figure out how to manage it.
Computers & IT (or why is my iPad always in portrait mode. Hey – what *is* portrait mode?)
-You need to set up your computers differently but haven’t the foggiest of how to start that.
-You want to know what a server is and whether you should have one
-You want to make sure your backups are working
A great experience for those with US/Canada taxes. The owner was both knowledgeable and flexible in dealing with our estate and returns.
