Bookkeeping

At Ashton Tax, we offer complete accounting services in Ottawa for all your small business accounting and bookkeeping needs. Give us a call today to see how our bookkeepers can help you spend less time working on your business and more time thinking about growing business! We not only serve the Ottawa region, but We also provide Virtual Bookkeeping Services throughout Canada.

Financial planning in a small business is one of the most critical things every business owner and/ or operator should do. It’s not just about managing cashflow but also about managing accounts payables and accounts receivables. Tax filing and year-end can be much easier if your bookkeeping has been well-managed throughout the year.

This can also be extremely useful if you should be audited, as you will have everything in order ready to be provided to the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency). Corporate finance can be complicated, but we can take the fuss out of it – let us help you navigate it with ease.

What is bookkeeping?

Bookkeeping involves: accounts receivables and payables, invoicing and cash flow budgeting. A good bookkeeper will ensure all of your records are kept in order online and on paper – that’s why we offer these services. A great bookkeeper (like the ones we have at Ashton Tax) will help you track your spending and better understand where your money is going and what your revenue streams are. Think of them sort of like a business consultant but without the price-tag!

Ashton tax offers many accounting services in addition to bookkeeping such as income tax preparation and filing, small business accounting services like payroll and GST and HST filing. All these services are available in Ottawa at our offices for small businesses and individuals in the Ottawa region.

As a former client of this business I must say that I was very disappointed in their customer service and work. I, like many others, were lured in by their "great reviews" (upon closer look, many fake). They were unreachable, very difficult to deal with, and very unprofessional. I also noticed that the manager treated their staff very harshly. As for their work, it was definitely not worth the money there are numerous other tax firms in Ottawa that do a better job.

I have been dealing with Ashton Tax for over 20 years and have always been pleased with their work. From looking after my personal accounting and taxes, for my business in Ottawa, and now my businesses in Nova Scotia and even Mexico, I know I can count on Maggie and her team to look after all of my needs. If I could rate Ashton Tax higher than 5 stars I certainly would.

I was recommended this firm to help complete my taxes as I thought that my taxes might be extra complicated for the past year. I initially felt good about this tax company as I felt that they would help me out a lot and do a good job, however, as I started to get around to everything I ended up needing to give them the final totals for all of my expenses rather than just give them the receipts and allow them to take care of it. So I ended up doing all of the grunt work myself which took me days and then they still ended up charging me a full $480 (which is apparently their base rate) when all they did was file the report. My mom mentioned afterwards that she gets all of her taxes done by a highly reputable company for $200 and she has a much more complicated return than I do. I am very unhappy and upset with the service that I received from this firm. I have been massively ripped off. This is very frustrating. I do NOT recommend this firm to anyone. I suggest you go somewhere else and ensure that your taxes will be completed diligently and not for a ridiculous amount of money.

Maggie Ashton est d'une grande compétence. Parfaitement bilingue, elle prend tout le temps d'expliquer, de vous éclairer sur certains points (notamment en ce qui a trait à la déclaration de revenus) qui vous auraient échappé. Toujours à l'écoute, elle est d'une patience d'ange et affiche à tout moment sa bonne humeur qui est communicative. Cela fait de longues années que je fais affaire avec Maggie et suis très, satisfait.

I started using Maggie's services a couple of years ago on the recommendation of a good friend, and I've never been more pleased with the financial and tax advice I've received! Maggie and her team are extremely knowledgeable, incredibly professional, and respond quickly with thorough and accurate information to all my questions. They provide strategic and practical advice tailored to my personal circumstances, frequently going above and beyond to help me understand my options and make the smartest choices I can make about how to make my money work for me. Last year, I also needed the services of a Financial Planner. I had spoken with a few potential planners but hadn’t found the right fit. Maggie was able to recommend her wife, Betty-Anne Howard, a Certified Financial Planner with Assante Financial Management Ltd. I had an introductory call with Betty-Anne and knew right away she was the perfect fit for me. Authorizing Maggie and Betty-Anne to share my information so as to work together resulted in some great strategies for achieving my tax planning, cash flow and financial planning goals all in one. I recommend Ashton Tax and Betty-Anne to anyone I know who is looking for excellent services at a reasonable price, delivered in a genuinely personable and results driven manner!

I have never used an accountant before, so I wasn't sure what to expect going in. Really appreciated their expertise during tax season. Between working in another province where I reside and the backlash from the federal government pay system, Maggie was able to walk me through the process and file my taxes appropriately. My visit could've been better if I had gotten a return from my taxes, but of course, that isn't their fault. Great atmosphere.

First time using an accountant and it has been a huge help. My tax situation was more complex than in the past and I was buying a house - I couldn't have done it all on time without their help. As a computer savvy person I was impressed with their options for securely transfering documents. I would highly recommend their services.
