The Pinnacle PAC promise:
- Great Turn Around
- Fixed Pricing
We believe that accounting is about much more than the numbers, and that to grow local businesses and economies, we must support and encourage culture and community.
Pinnacle PAC wants to help our community prosper economically through successful enterprise and spiritually through artistic endeavour. We believe our own business can contribute to the economic and social well-being of our community by nurturing start-up enterprises, coaching existing businesses, providing low-cost services to non-profits, offering secure, well-paid and meaningful work to our team members, setting a good example of best practices and technological innovation and supporting local artists and food providers.
Our passion at Pinnacle PAC is helping people succeed. Our clients tell us they value our relationship because we translate technical matters into plain English they can understand and use. We believe the accountant should be a coach, cheerleader and peer rather than simply the scorekeeper. We believe professionals should charge a fair price for the value provided to the client and that value is not a function of time spent. We believe an accounting office can be a fun and creative place for the team members and an open and non-threatening environment for clients.
A successful enterprise is one that exists to serve the objectives of the proprietor. Too often, the proprietor ends up chained to her own business with a lunatic for a boss. How does this happen? Can it be avoided? Can it be changed? We can help small business owners to identify their personal objectives and then take action to achieve them through the operation of their businesses.
We want to empower small business owners to help themselves – to understand their business, understand their financial position, measure their growth, interpret their financial results, build their operating systems, improve their teams and make themselves better leaders and community members to the enrichment of our whole region.
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.
