"Usually, when you search for accounting services you want someone who is technically very competent, up-to-date, fast, professional organized and responsive. My experience with Daniel has included all of the above and more.
In addition to the above competencies, he displays strong interpersonal skills, including a listening to understand and empathy. Finally, he has a vital attribute- recalling those things that are important to his client and the relationship.
Thank you for what you do and who you are, Daniel."
“Daniel has provided us with excellent advice from day one of launching our business. He takes the time to understand our objectives and provides constructive feedback for current and future consideration. I would highly recommend him to others requiring sound, professional advice.”
"Daniel is very attentive person. Even upon my first email inquiry to him, I recieved an email back within 10 minutes answering all my questions thoroughly and set up a meeting to have my taxes completed. I was nervous about the process because it was my first time doing my own taxes as a self employed person but he made it simple for me to understand. He also has extensive knowledge on Airbnb income, which is what made me reach out to him after reading an article he wrote about the subject. He will be my ongoing accountant and financial advisor this coming year as well. :-)"
"We had a complex situation involving an HST rebate for a rental property, which had involved some confusion from the builder, a prior rebate rejection from the CRA, and us without clear next steps. Daniel was able to quickly sort through the tangle of documents from various sources and pinpointed the source of the problem within minutes. With his keen eye for all of the fine details in this complicated scenario, he reached out to all of the parties involved, and settled the manner of our missing rebate, quickly and in an amicable fashion. We really appreciated his work and were impressed with both his in-depth expertise and his thoroughness. Thank you!"
"Phone bill about two G's flat / No need to worry, my accountant handles that"
Being self-employed and preferring to have a professional to handle my taxes, I've dealt with my fair share of accountants/bookkeepers. And by far, Daniel is the best.
He is prompt and accountable (harhar) with his correspondence. I prefer communicating via email and Daniel usually responds within hours - making sure to address any concerns and clearly shows his excellent tax knowledge and his understanding of my tax situation. In fact, he made a couple of suggestions to help lessen my tax burden in the future -- things that never occurred to me... and were never brought up previous tax professionals seeming more interested to get your taxes done (sometimes by a subcontractor) and move onto the next client.
Also, it's nice having a tech-savvy accountant in Daniel -- I didn't have to explain why my files 'weren't opening', I didn't need to 'follow-up' and we didn't need to kill a forest with hardcopies of everything. Most everything was handled over email/cloud storage and we only met to handle some unavoidable paperwork at his Yonge & Eglington office. In fact, even our meeting was productive as Daniel really took the time to understand my situation.
On top of being thorough and compassionate, his rates are reasonable and fair price for the peace of mind and excellent advice he provided. This was the first year that I went to Daniel with my taxes and I will definitely be working with him in the future."
"Daniel helped me with both personal and small business tax returns for the last couple of years. He is professional and methodical in his communication to the client and his work. What I most liked about him, is that he is not only using the latest technologies for his work (email, online drives), but also understands the various income streams that one might have, such as start-up options, online revenue, and similar, which are showing up more and more in today’s business landscape. Highly recommended."
"Daniel is a pleasure to work with. All my questions were answered promptly and thoroughly. I highly recommend."
"I recently worked with Daniel to complete my personal taxes and found him to be very professional, polite and respectful. My initial conversation with Daniel was thorough and he was very responsive to my questions throughout. Daniel followed through on his commitments regarding timing and delivered value.
I would be pleased to recommend Daniel to anyone and I have already done so with one individual who also had a great experience working with Daniel."
"Daniel is more than a competent accountant, he is kind and compassionate and very pleasant to work with. A rare gem."
