I offer a complete range of personalized accounting services and business advice for owner managed business in the West Kootenays.
For a new business I can help you decide whether the business should be incorporated or start off as a proprietorship. I can help you decide on share structure for your corporation and liaise with your legal team.
I can help the new business owner select appropriate accounting software and guide you through registering your new business with the various tax authorities.
I can offer the business owner an appropriate level of assurance on their financial statements. I provide either Review Engagement Services or Notice to Reader financial statements. For many corporations, the main focus of preparing financial statements is to provide the information necessary to file the corporate tax return making the added expense of a Review Engagement unnecessary.
Corporate tax returns
I will prepare the corporate tax return as an integral part of the corporate year end.
Personal Tax Returns
I have been preparing personal tax returns for three decades. If you have a rental property, unincorporated business income, investment income or a simple tax return, I can help you when it comes time to file your personal tax return.
Even if you have been in business for a number of years, it is a good idea to review your financial procedures. I can help you prepare a procedures manual to assist in training new staff and identify opportunities to streamline your bookkeeping workflow. I can teach you how to you analyze the information you need to manage your business effectively.

Recently, we just opened up our new modern Italian restaurant, Marzano. We embarked on a trip to Naples, Italy in 2017. We enrolled in a one week course from one of the most revered, legendary pizzaiolas, Enzo Coccia, to understand the tradition and methods behind preparing the dough and working the forno. The course was rewarding and eye opening as we learned a century-old hand stretching dough techniques and simple authentic recipes. In addition to these well-guarded methods, we discovered the beauty of pure, fresh ingredients. The San Marzano tomato is a cornerstone ingredient that the locals take pride in as it is native only to the rich volcanic soil of the area. We were inspired by this and felt we needed to take the same care in selecting our ingredients, hence the name, Marzano as an homage to quality and authenticity.
We welcome you to come check out Nelson’s new restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week.

Willow Point Beach House is one of the first homes to be built on the North Shore.

Once a farm, then a shop, and almost a replica of an old English pub: now a B&B. It has now been renovated to a more modern design although a little crooked here and there to lend to its charm. Willow Point Beach House has 150 feet of the best beach in the area. The garden sweeps down to the water’s edge and offers our guests the chance to swim, fish or boat or just lounge in the garden or on the sandy beach. Join your hosts at the fire pit and roast some marshmallows and swap a few yarns. The new owners Larry Costen & Sheila Morrison offer their guests delicious gourmet continental breakfasts with home baked goodies and fresh local fruit, home made preserves and much more.
