“Calibr8.me Analytics Inc is the records management and compliance part of my professional CPA practice. We believe that we’re really a different kind of firm and do our best to be as creative and innovative as our clients”….Rob Farrow
“VIRTUAL” FIRM – THAT DOES HOUSE CALLS
While most of our clients are technology companies located in downtown Vancouver, I work from a home office on Pender Island (where I retreat for sanity) and a 2nd office in Port Coquitlam, from where I can service companies and CPA firms in the lower mainland of BC.
Other team members include a CPA in the Philippines (Divine) and a professional engineer (Tom) who lives in Nanoose Bay on Vancouver Island.
FOCUSED ON TAX & TAX INCENTIVES
It’s no secret that the tax environment is changing for small business. The Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) is becoming increasingly process-driven. We are advocates for our clients and try to ensure that your systems and documentation is ready to withstand an audit.
We specialize in tax and tax incentives and are one of Canada’s most experienced SR&ED tax specialists. We can also assist companies that want to register for BC’s Interactive Digital Media Tax Credit (“BC IDMTC”) program, as well as companies looking to qualify as an Eligible Business Corporation (“EBC”) with BC’s Investment Capital Branch.
ONLINE FORMS & AFTER THE FACT BOOKKEEPING FOR STARTUPS
For startups we provide very cost-effective record-keeping systems to facilitate outsourced bookkeeping and after-the-fact accounting services. These allow us to provide tax planning and SR&ED advisory and support services – at surprisingly competitive prices.
