Tax Planning

Why wait until tax time to plan for tax time! Self-employment offers the opportunity to plan ahead for the tax bill. 

Eliminate the stress of last minute estimating of numbers in order to meet the RRSP deadline. 

Up to date reporting of income and expenses will provide you with the information you require for tax planning throughout the year as well as running various RRSP contribution scenarios to assist with financial planning.

Meet with your tax advisor/financial planner as the year progresses versus the last week of February.

Management Decision Making

It just makes sense! How can you be equipped to make those critical decisions if your income and expenses are not up to date?

You need an accurate picture of your expenses in order to ensure you are achieving those desired profit margins when quoting on jobs. Frequent reporting will provide you with the opportunity to adjust your estimating if you are able to identify issues immediately.

Remaining current on expected cash inflows and outflows is critical for cash ow management. Remaining current with bookkeeping provides the information required to accurately plan for cash flow surplus and/or restraints.


Annette Bourassa


I have spent my working life fulfilling roles in an accounting capacity, both in industry and in accounting firms. I enjoy the variety in the work, but truly value the relationships with clients and the satisfaction of assisting business owners.

Along with a fulfilling career, I achieve true balance in life through appreciating the outdoors. Hiking and cycling provide the much needed exercise and tranquility. It is something I am blessed to share with family and friends.

The balance is complete when committing myself to the service of others. I’m a proud supporter of local charities such as:

Dress for success – an organization committed to assisting women re-enter the work force through various services including professional clothing for interviews, financial counselling (budget management, cash flow management), resume writing and so much more.

Overseas Organization – A Cup For Africa – an organization committed to housing orphans, school program sponsorship, sewing project (training women how to sew and become self sufficient), church partnered outreach providing church service and a meal and more.
