I have been getting first class accounting support from Andrew Wall and the CPA4IT team for 7 years. They walked me through creating my incorporated consulting business, prepared my corporate taxes, provided easy to follow checklists for me to follow, helped me grow into business in the USA, answered any questions that came up when CRA asked for something new I didn't understand.

[Updated Nov 15, 2020]Think Andrew really works hard to improve in past few years:(1) Use more technology that is actually working and helping, like recently on-line document signing, RightSignature;(2) ensure team member fulfilling their responsibility and responding to the client request and concern.Plus his and George's master expertise in this area, I am upgrading to 5 stars.[Original Post]It has been over 20 years since I first met the Wall team at their IT consulting seminar and has been enjoying such a successful 20+ consulting business, partly due to their financial expertise and guidance: they are there at every key moment of my corporate and personal financial event, and providing valuable advise and planning, which I truly appreciate! One such example is advises being provides for recent passive income tax hike from Federal Liberals.I'd have had given them 5 stars if not for occasional missing something or being a little late in preparing the final accounting package. I will keep updating this review next year to see any new development.

I've been a customer for over 20 years which should in itself speak for my satisfaction with CPA4IT. Working as an independent contractor for over 20 years, they have provided me with exceptional service and have no doubt saved me more money in taxes then the cost of the service. Having experts on staff ensuring that my taxes were accurate and filed properly gives me a great sense of security. The support I received when the CRA conducted an audit of my claimed expenses was excellent and relieved the stress I would have otherwise experienced during a review by the CRA.

I have been a client of Wall and Associates for 20 years. With so many accounting firms to choose from, the following is what sets W&A apart.Free Advice:• Accounting firms are always pressured to maximize the billing time. Sometimes this becomes a deterrent to call your accountant for the fear of getting a hefty bill.• To overcome this trap of making bad decisions, the founder George Wall has always been available as a free re-source, to be a sounding board to run through ideas.• Andrew Wall who has taken over from his dad, is continuing to be available for guidance and advice. His initiative to have webinars to address common questions during COVID-19 to avoid charging clients individually is an example that he cares about the welfare of his clientsAudit insurance program:• The bench marking W&A does makes sure that the financial statements are reasonable comparing expenses to their client base. They are proactive is not allowing anything that is illegal.• When someone gets audited by CRA, some accounting firms add insult to injury, by charging a lot of fees to deal with CRA.• Wall & Associates have this awesome audit insurance program where in when you contribute $ 250 a year, in the event you get audited by CRA, they will use the money from that fund to defend you from such audits, which even though I have never had a reason to be audited, gives me peace of mind.Portal:• Instead of wasting papers the financial statements & T4’s are posted in a secure client portal• Starting this year W&A have gone Green! They do not mail the flashy accounting package anymore, which sits on a binder collecting dust. Instead the financial statements and all other document are uploaded to the portalFees:• Over the last 20 years, a few years I have had issues a few years with a sticker shock when there is staff turnover or errors. which are inevitable for any accounting firm btw.• This issue is magnified when the staff is paid based on the chargeable hours. Therefore, the accountants are pressured to charge for every single minute that they spend on a file including every email that they receive and respond.• A client does not control the efficiency of an accounting firm therefore the fees should be reflective of what the market can bare. By stifling communication with the accountants, the chances of errors are only increased.• Having said that, whenever I had an over run of my fees due to staff turnover or errors both the Walls have been reasonable. Instead of being reactive, there should be a control before billing if the fees are reasonable when the service provided was comparative to the previous year.Overall:• When I benchmark the fees some of my peers pay for a mom and pop operation, I find that I am paying a premium.• At the end of the day you get what you pay for! The reason why I am giving Wall and Associates a five star is because I see there is value in their service that I get from them!

I have been working with CPA4IT for the past 12 months and I value their partnership. They have a very knowledgeable staff and enable you to focus on your core work by taking the overall responsibility of accounting (a very important aspect for a IT consultant). They have in-house experts who helped me to incorporate, handle my day-day accounting and provide tax related support and help.

I started out on the lowest price package 5 years ago and in retrospect that was an error because doing a lot of the work yourself while also learning how to run a business (I was just starting out) was stressful, although they did try to steer me in the right directions.I’m an expert in my field but certainly not accounting. I switched to their top-end service for full cloud accounting and bookkeeping, and holy smokes, the delta in price was paid for in just a few months as not losing receipts and CA4IT getting an understanding of how my business and (what I thought were) personal expenditures intermixed resulted in amazing “dividends”.I can’t ever go back to the old way. Spending a few weekends a year of my life digging for papers and punching in illegible receipts? No thanks!
