Experienced Accountants in Surrey, BC
Maintaining proper books and records for your company is vitally important for several reasons. The first that most people think about is that Canada Revenue Agency requires anyone who carries on a business or is engaged in a commercial activity in Canada to keep records containing information to enable the determination of their liabilities and obligations. This in itself can be a very time consuming task. Another reason to keep proper books and records is to assist the business owner with making timely strategic and relevant business decisions. The information that you can obtain from your company’s financial books is priceless allowing you to change direction or pursue avenues so that you can take advantage of opportunities as they arise to keep you ahead of your competitors or to just make your business more successful. To do this you need accurate and timely information.
