Merrill is your Ledgers Professional in Cape Breton NS. Looking for Accounting, Bookkeeping or Tax Preparers in your area? Contact Merrill Today
Merrill began his career in the accounting profession as a student trainee for HR Doane and Company, now Grant Thornton International, and worked with them for 7 years.
He obtained his CA designation in 1990 and moved back to Sydney in 1992.
In November 1992, he joined a Glace Bay CA Firm as a partner and was responsible for approximately 80 clients in various industries, managing staff and all administrative functions.
Merrill has been working for the past 17 years in the CBRM in various business advisory roles.
In December 2002, Merrill sold his share of the practice and joined the management team of a local high-tech company as CFO.
In August of 2005, he left this company and began providing controllership and business advisory services to small and medium sized businesses in the industrial Cape Breton area.
The focus has been on providing these services to companies that do not have the financial resources for a full-time controller but require assistance in preparation of timely financial statements, cash flow and strategic planning.

The success (or failure) of any business is contingent upon the business plan; if you do not have a business plan, how can you possibly gauge your results? How do you know if your business is meeting expectations?
Our Business Plan Services are all available at a very low, affordable price, generally at a fraction of the cost that others charge and are recognized by ALL OF THE MAJOR BANKS!
No lending institution will lend your business money without a properly prepared, detailed business plan. A Business Plan will become your roadmap to the future of your business; would you drive from Calgary to San Jose without a map? So why would you try to develop a successful business without a plan?
If the Covid-19 Pandemic has taught us anything, it is that cash flow is critical to the success of your business.
Without sound cash flow and liquid cash reserves, a business can fail quickly should an unexpected event occur.
Does your business have the cash flow and reserves to survive another event? Could you survive another wave and shutdown again?
Get professional prepared cash flow projections and determine the viability of your business before it is too late.
One of the greatest myths in the small business community is that a CPA or large accounting firm must complete your Corporate Tax Return and Financial Statements each year; nothing could be further from the truth!

A Ledgers Professional has the training, skills, support and infrastructure to complete your financial statements and tax returns professionally and in a timely manner, usually at a FRACTION of the cost of the large firms.
Establishing the proper structure for your business, before you start your business is extremely important!
In fact, if you fail to establish the proper structure in the beginning, it can be very difficult to change later and it could end up costing you thousands of dollars annually in taxes. Our Services are all available at a very low, affordable price, generally at a fraction of the cost that others charge.
Sure, there are lots of ‘do it yourself’ incorporation services out there, but do they give you advice and guidance based upon your personal tax situation? Will they take the time to understand your plans for succession? Will they look at tax saving strategies? Will they look at your family situation and look at future tax planning scenarios?
All of these items should be considered BEFORE you incorporate your business!
The greatest asset of your business walks in the door at 9:00am; unfortunately, the greatest liability your business has also walks in the door at 9:00am. Employees are an integral part of almost every small business, however, treated poorly or outside of the boundaries of employment standards legislation, employees can become a nightmare for you.
Ensuring your employees are paid on time and accurately is very important to the success of your business and your local Ledgers Professional will work with you to ensure that you are meeting the requirements of the Provincial Employment Standards Act.
