Seigneuret & Company recognizes the importance of providing sound tax advice to our clients. We work with a number of highly regarded tax specialists to ensure that our clients benefit from the best and most current tax strategies. Tax services include corporate and personal tax planning, estate planning, and assistance in complying with federal and provincial income taxes, Goods and Services tax and other commodity taxes. We also provide counselling in the formative stages of a business and in structuring acquisitions and sales of existing businesses to ensure that tax consequences are fully considered. T1 personal tax return preparation is fully computerized with E-file service to CRA (Canada Revenue Agency).
Auditing & Accounting Services
Seigneuret & Company provides a range of accounting services including:
- General purpose audits of year end financial statements for corporations and non-profits
- Special compliance audits as required by such organization as CMHC, BC Housing Commission, and the BC Law Society
- Preparation of unaudited financial statements
Our approach to auditing and accounting emphasizes a substantial knowledge of each client’s business, prevailing conditions in their industry, their competitive position, and the importance of their product line to earnings and sales. With this insight we can concentrate on the issues that are important to the engagement. This approach also gives us a better perspective to provide income tax and general advisory services best suited to clients’ needs. A large part of our practice is devoted to the preparation and review of unaudited financial statements. Often, owner/managers do not require audit services. In carrying out review and compilation work we strive to provide useful and practical information to owners and management to assist them to manage more effectively.
Business Advisory Services
Seigneuret & Company has a wide range of business and financial experience. Areas of service include general business counselling, bank proposals, business negotiations, accounting system development, operation reviews, cash flow planning and budgeting.
We also provide timely information to management by providing computerized bookkeeping services. With these services we can provide clients with monthly or quarterly financial information at a lower cost relative to setting up and staffing an in-house accounting department.
