Professional Services

Being in the professional services industry ourselves, we understand that time is money. When professionals spend time on accounting, tax, technology implementation or other non-core business functions, they lose valuable time that could be devoted to clients. We work with a variety of professional services providers, taking care of their business functions so they can concentrate on the work that they love.

We have experience working with law firms, architects, engineers, insurance & investment advisors, public relations and advertising firms, SR&ED consultants, personal & fitness training professionals, management companies, and a wide range of other service providers.

We can provide as much or as little support as needed, depending on each clientís specific needs and other internal resources. How much we do is up to you.

    Jaime Grant - Grant Bookkeeping Services

  • " When I established my business in 2001, I set out to select my professional advisory team which included the services of an accountant. My previous 25 years had been spent employed in two small businesses where in addition to my normal duties I acted as the companyís Treasurer. In those days, I had the assistance of our company accounting staff, a large professional accounting firm and later an individual accounting professional. Decisions then had been by consensus which in my opinion was good for the moral of employees but only slightly positive for business. During my search a friend suggested Michaelís firm and staff as a possible solution - I can say I have never looked back. Michael has given me the experience I needed to manage the accounting and taxation parts of my company operations. I have also learned a new computerized accounting system & have gained a lot of confidence in recording my ongoing activity thanks to Ms. Helen Hogan. Michael and his staff members have provided me with professional yet practical advice. They do so with an excellent attitude, in a friendly manner and by a team approach. We have periodic discussions regarding our business and personal estate / retirement planning, year-end filings and tax planning around asset purchases and real estate dispositions. I have achieved success in my business and personal life in part from being able to better understand how the accounting and taxation process affects my goals and objectives. We have continued to retain Michaelís firm after our relocation from Barrie to Peterborough in 2011 because of the enthusiasm and trust we have experienced - thank you for all you do for us! "

    Rich Grof - Rich Grof Performance Sales Coaching and Leadership Development

  • " I first began working with Michael a few years ago as a student. Even though my taxes were not necessarily complicated then, Michael was always very patient and thorough in his approach to working with me. He always treated my needs in the same light as a professional with a more complex financial picture. This was refreshing, because as a student itís easy to be overlooked by someone dismissing the lack of financial income as someone that doesnít need help. As a professional now, I have been overjoyed at Michaelís consistency. He never had to change his tone or approach to my file because he was always treating me with the utmost care from the beginning continuing to today. He is clearly passionate about his work and I can see that in his approach to working with his clients. He works to find the best path for your own situation while ensuring you can save as much in terms of taxes as possible. I firmly place my confidence in Michael and his skills and highly encourage anyone curious about their accounting and tax needs to have a chat with Michael! "

  • " We have had Michaelís firm deal with our corporate, personal and real estate holdings for the last decade. He and his staff have taken a continual caring interest in our overall situation and when needed his referral network connections have been very helpful to us. Our firm also utilizes Mike in a consulting capacity to dissect complex client scenarios into practical bite sized issues to address. At times, we also directly refer him to clients to provide advice on their own corporate or personal situations. In both cases, our firm and our clients have found his approach to be a pleasant change and his advice to be of great value. We have no hesitation in recommending Michaelís firm to entrepreneurís who are looking for a valued CPA firm to be part of their advisory team. "

  • " A great deal of growth in the last few years caused us to start looking for an accounting firm with the experience and confidence to guide us. Mike was referred to us by a friend who is a professional bookkeeper. She thought his down to earth, trustworthy, experienced approach would be perfect for us and she was right. As new clients, we couldn't be happier. Mike and staff do what they do best allowing us to focus on our specialty. We pride ourselves in honesty and integrity and having Michael Kostrich CPA Professional Corporation on our side helps us maintain that priority on all levels of business.
