Manufacturing, wholesale and retail operations all have at least one thing in common: inventory. Successful inventory management, which includes accurate inventory cost accounting, is essential to your business’ success. However, inventory is one of the most complicated items to account for and one that we see many entities struggle with when they move to a review or an audit engagement.


In addition to handling the industry’s specific tax considerations, such as PST and SR&ED tax credits, our team of accounting professionals can help you navigate the inventory cost accounting world and generate better information to guide your business decisions. And because we’re located on the West Coast, we also assist many importers and exporters with their unique accounting and tax issues.
