Our Tools for Canadian Small Businesses


The world of business has evolved over the years, and that means one of the most vital parts of running a business – bookkeeping and accounting – must evolve too. Here at AF Accounting, we keep pace with changing technologies and the way people do business. As a result, we have the tools you need whether you are selling from a brick-and-mortar store or solely online. Today we’ll explain how you can grow your company using one or a combination of our services.

Virtual CFO

A chief financial officer (CFO) handles all the financials of a business – the day-to-day and the tax preparation. They make forecasts, help adjust cash flow when necessary, maintain records and produce reports. Most CFOs are also certified, management accountants. It can be expensive for a new, virtual, or small company to have a full-time CFO on staff. AF Accounting offers virtual CFOs so you can enjoy all of the services you need, but only as you need them. Part-time, full-time, or one-time, our virtual CFO services are flexible for your growing brand.

Cloud Accounting

Keeping all your finance and sensitive payroll information on an in-house server is risky. Office servers could be impacted by fire, vandalism, and theft. Neglecting to implement security patches or upgrades leaves you vulnerable to hackers and ransomware. Cloud accounting removes the risk. Your data is stored in a secure dedicated facility and your software programs are automatically updated.

Taxes and Year End

Sorting through all the paperwork at tax time and year-end is complicated. COVID-19, with its many federal government assistance programs along with changing tax deadlines, has made things even more complicated. AF Accounting saves you time and helps you remain compliant with our tax advice, tax planning, and year-end management services.

E-commerce Accounting

Sellers on Amazon and Shopify represent the newest generation of entrepreneurs. Thanks to platforms like these, local sellers can easily reach a global target market. However, along with this innovation comes cross-border taxes, tariffs, customs fees, and more. We have cloud-based software that solves the many accounting issues of e-commerce sellers. A2X is formulated specifically for Amazon, while Shopify integrates with your existing software to support your e-bay, Etsy, direct, or other web-based storefronts.

Routine Bookkeeping

Sometimes you just need help with the routine things like managing cash flow, budgeting, and forecasting. We provide these services so you can get as much, or as little, assistance as you need.
