Best Accountants in Vancouver and surrounding areas

For the small business owner, the successful day to day operation of the business depends on the efficient recording of transactions, accurate reports and access to information.

We want to help our clients succeed, and small business owners need to see accurate bookkeeping and accounting information in order to make wise operational decisions. At Burgess Kilpatrick, we assist to fulfill the needs of business owners to have access to accurate financial information.

You may need help or advice with some of the tasks that you need to complete in order to keep the books of the business organized. Our small business accounting services include, but are not limited to:

  • monthly recording of income and receivables
  • bank reconciliations
  • internal financial reports
  • recording of expenses and GST remittances
  • payroll administration and remittances

As your company grows in size, these tasks can take up a greater amount of time and take the business owner away from growing the company.  At Burgess Kilpatrick, we provide small business bookkeeping and accounting services for our clients so that they can concentrate on those areas of the business where they have the greatest skill.

We also provide payroll services that enable your employees to be paid on time. Our staff are able to coordinate with designated personnel to receive required payroll information, and can complete your staff payroll within agreed time deadlines.

Outsourcing company bookkeeping and payroll tasks enables business owners to spend time on building their businesses instead of allocating valuable time to administrative tasks. Delegation of administrative tasks is a key component of building any business and is one of the ways that Burgess Kilpatrick helps business owners grow their companies.

Please contact our office at 604-327-9234 to discuss how we can help with your business needs. We are available throughout the week from 9:00 to 5:00 weekdays, and are also open on Saturdays from 10:00 to 3:00 during the months of March and April.
