About Us

Real Tax is a fast growing public accounting firm focused on the needs of small companies – startups and individuals. We’re located in the heart of Downtown – Vancouver, British Columbia. At Real Tax, we believe that without accounting, life will be bleak, as in both the personal and corporate worlds, effective accounting allows one to review the past and the present in order to prepare for the future. Essentially, it keeps you in good health, fiscally speaking at least.

We all have unique accounting needs. Small and medium business owners need to place profound attention on accounting. Our staff are experienced and from diverse backgrounds. This experience and diversity enables us to easily relate to your accounting needs like bookkeeping; tax preparation and consulting; payroll management and financial statements (among others). We want you to be more than just another client.

We want to be a part of your story, forging bonds with your company and tailoring our services to your company’s philosophy. For us, working with our clients is never quite a “work.” It’s more like helping out a friend or loved one. That’s Real Tax for you!

If you are looking for accounting solutions with a personalized, homely touch, then you are in the right place.
