At The Accountables our mission is to help you with all your accounting, business and tax needs.  We believe that knowledge is power, and it is our goal to share what we know.  We want to help you deal with CRA in a way that will stop stress and uncertainty, and which will allow you to minimize time away from your business.


We will:

  • Provide you with the knowledge and advice you need to make informed decisions.
  • Treat you with respect no matter how big or small your business is.
  • Have your best interests as our number one concern.
  • Help you legally minimize your taxes payable.
  • Help you become more profitable and knowledgeable about your business.
  • Charge you a reasonable fee for our services and disclose them to you before any work is performed.
  • Keep you informed about the status of your file or related proceedings we have undertaken on your behalf.
  • Help you meet your filing obligations with the Federal and Provincial governments.
  • Not do anything to contravene the laws of Canada or any other country.  If it is illegal or it is our interpretation that it is illegal we wont do it.


Special Services

Pick up and drop off

We are willing to pick up your records and drop off your completed tax returns and financial statements when we return your records to you.  This service is extra, but if you absolutely can't get away from your business or the cost in lost productivity and missed sales is to high, then this service may be right for you.  If you are interested please ask for details when you contact us.


House Calls

We are willing to come see you if you make an appointment.  If you need to see us but can't spend the time to travel, or have only a short break due to meetings or previous commitments then this service may be right for you.  We will meet with you during normal business hours, or outside of normal business hours (including weekends) if absolutely necessary.   The cost of this service varies depending on time of day, location (parking downtown is ridiculous, driving the Deerfoot in rush hour takes forever), and whether the appointment is on a weekday or weekend.


About us

We are located in NE Calgary and have years of experience in accounting, bookkeeping, and tax preparation.  We have extensive knowledge of Income Tax and GST, and we know how the CRA operates.  We want to put that knowledge to work for you.  The CRA spends a lot of time and money to administer the various tax acts and to train their staff.  Don't go up against them alone.

Bud Duncan has a BA and numerous certifications in bookkeeping.  She has over 20 years accounting experience and has worked for numerous organizations in administrative and accounting capacities.

Kevin Penner has 15 years experience working as an auditor for the Canada Revenue Agency. He brings a wealth of tax knowledge to the organization, as well as the ability to successfully navigate the CRA's bureaucracy.

You may be able to find someone cheaper, but they will not be better.  We base our fees on the amount of work that will be involved to take care of your specific needs.  Each business and each individual is unique and has their own needs and circumstances which must be addressed.  The Accountables treat each client as if they are our only client.  We will listen to you, explain what we can do to help, explain how much it is going to cost and why.  You are special and deserve to be treated that way.
