Chartered Professional Accountant
Michael McAllister, CPA is a sole practitioner providing client-focused management advisory, accounting and taxation services to individuals, small business and the self employed.
Successful business owners are experts in their field and have a “can-do” attitude. Many are also extremely savvy in most, if not all areas of their business, including the financial side. Others, while possessing the same attributes, struggle with managing the financial aspects of their business. This struggle distracts them from growing their business to its full potential.
Bookkeeping is the process of classifying and recording the day-to-day transactions of a business. It’s the gathering of all the sales, expenses, and other receipts and collating them into the correct buckets. Accounting starts with bookkeeping as its fundamental first step, then goes beyond by summarizing, reporting, and interpreting the bookkeeping results into actionable information that can be used by owners to drive profit and growth in their business.
The Canadian tax system is based on self-reporting. Taxpayers, therefore, have the right, or even the responsibility, to structure their affairs in the most tax-efficient manner as possible to lawfully minimizes their tax burden. Whether you’re an employee, an independent contractor, or a small business owner, you can benefit from the tax knowledge and preparation services offered by a Chartered Professional Accountant

- C. Barnes – Personal Tax Client
"We were looking to move from the USA to Canada and needed information regarding the transfer of our IRAs to avoid unnecessary taxes. Michael McAllister was very helpful, and although he could not help us directly, because the service we needed was not a part of his business, he immediately gave us a recommendation, which lead us to a broker who dealt with across-the-border assets management. We were very happy with this broker. Prior to contacting Michael, We had spent weeks calling financial management companies, asset brokers and banks in the USA and Canada without any luck. Thank you Michael."
