With a focus on small and medium businesses, including personal and corporate tax preparation and planning and business consulting, Michael believes that:
You cannot be everything to everybody. This is true for our clients. They have discovered something they are good at and have made it into a business. However, they cannot be expected to understand every aspect of their business, particularly, the financial side of it. That is where we come in. The same is true for us as well. We cannot be everything to everybody. This is why we have built up a network of expertise. People we can rely on to help us help our clients to succeed. Our purpose is to serve our clients and give them peace of mind about all aspects of their business and personal finances, so that they can concentrate on doing what they do best.
Michael has served as Treasurer of the Nanoose Bay Recreation Society, Director and Treasurer on the Qualicum Beach Chamber of Commerce and, currently, is an active member of the Qualicum Beach Sunrise Rotary Club.
