At Padgett Business Services, we process many tax returns every year.  With our personal tax clients, we routinely do a tax questionnaire that will capture all of the information that will be necessary to create an accurate tax return.  For the corporate tax returns, we will review the financial statements with the client before proceeding to the tax preparation stage.  We are always on the lookout for another deduction or missing expense that we can claim to reduce the tax burden. If you still forget something, we will help you to determine how and when it needs reporting.  This service is offered at NO CHARGE to our monthly and quarterly clients.
Clients will usually provide us with their records to allow us to process their accounting.  When completed, the original records are returned to the clients for safe keeping. Padgett also keeps a copy of journal entries, financial reports and tax returns for our monthly and quarterly clients.
A monthly or quarterly client will receive the following items every time we have completed our work:
      • Notice to Reader
      • Balance Sheet
      • Income Statement
      • General Ledger Listing
      • Disbursements Register
Tax clients receive a print out of their personal or corporate tax return.  They will also receive a confirmation of filing from the CRA.

Our Testimonials

I feel like I’ m in Good Hands with Padgett Business Services, compared to my previous 3.5 years of business where I had bounced between 3-4 other bookkeeping/accounting services who really didn’t seem to know what they were doing, and I didn’t feel they were giving a Self-Employed IT Contractor the proper advice.
Michael Duffy, Nerds On Site Calgary
The whole process was so smooth working with you and I appreciated your accessibility to outside resources.  I will certainly ask for guidance, where needed, and hope to be able to work with you for next year.
Brody Loster
