You wouldn’t buy the first house you see. You shop around for your electronics. It only makes sense that you want to hire an accountant who meets your business needs. As a business owner you want someone who understands what it means to be a business owner. Sitting at the dinner table on Saturday night, mind wandering to the upcoming week and how to get more customers to walk through your door. Will the road sign you put up work? When is my HST due? These thoughts have also gone through Jim’s head. That’s part of what makes him a better accountant than most.

  1. Chartered Professional Accountant James Walker has his practice located in Mississauga, Ontario. If your business is located in the western suburbs of Toronto (Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Brampton, Georgetown, Milton, etc), Jim’s offices are easier to get to than if you have to travel to Toronto. This means it will save you time – and time is money!
  2. You will actually get to meet with Jim Walker. When you come for your free initial consultation you will sit down with Jim to discuss your situation. This means you will get the full benefit of meeting with the actual accountant who will be doing the work for you.

  6. He has worked for a huge, multinational firm. When Jim graduated and received his CA designation, he worked for more than one accounting firm. He has dealt with hue companies and was able to implement the proper structures. Therefore no job is too big or too small!
  7. He has run a business out of his house. His wife works with him. Both of those things can be difficult at times. You will be able to speak with him about the pros and cons of these types of situations and you can count on him to have real life experience to draw on.
