I'm a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA, CMA) with over 10 years of experience as both a freelance and corporate accountant. I currently work with a wide variety of small business owners (both in Canada an internationally) providing services ranging from financial planning to accounting and tax services. Through my work on Elance, I've built a solid reputation of delivering high quality services.

My freelance experience is backed by nearly 10 years spent working in the energy and manufacturing sectors holding a wide variety of roles as a front-line accountant, internal auditor, and manager with oversight for Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance and an IFRS conversion.
Service Description
I currently specialize in working with Canadian small businesses, providing services that include financial planning, accounting for transactions, financial reporting/statements, tax planning, payroll and tax services for both corporations and individuals.

I've also provided similar services to businesses outside Canada and have a working knowledge of US GAAP, IFRS, and tax requirements in various jurisdictions, including the US and UK.
