AFFINITY ACCOUNTANTS

Beyond Numbers.

We are a full service bookkeeping, accounting, and tax firm located in Surrey. With strong ties in Surrey and Langley, we service clients in the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland.

Our purpose is to support you in achieving the vision you have for your business by helping you engage your financials as more than just historical data and your accountant as more than just a historian.

  • Go above & beyond when needed
  • Be reliable & resourceful
  • Communicate openly & honestly

Best Accounting firms in Surrey

Taxes

We prefer to take a proactive vs. reactive approach to tax services. By keeping current on new tax laws and legislation, we are in a position to identify key tax planning opportunities that minimize both your current and future tax liabilities. We provide our individual and business clients with the taxation expertise and knowledge that they deserve throughout the year.

Accounting

Providing financial information to our clients in a timely and accurate manner is a commitment that we feel cannot be compromised. Meaningful, well-organized financial records ensure that your business operations will run more efficiently on a daily basis. Our firm provides a full range of cost effective accounting services.

Controllership

Growing a business is costly and time consuming. We understand that businesses need the advice and support of a financial professional to reach the next level. Our controller services are designed to suit the needs of a growing business. Many small to medium size companies only need a controller for a few hours each week and it is therefore financially unwise to hire a Controller or on a full-time basis. We can be the solution to fill the gap.

Consulting

We gauge our worth by the personal and business successes of our clients. We can help your business identify areas negatively affecting profitability and growth and develop solutions that are practical and technically sound. In addition to acting as a sounding board for management, we provide comprehensive, flexible strategies that address the issues affecting your business.

We recently switched our accounting needs both corporate and personal from KPMG to Iqbal and the Affinity team. Their communication, quality of work, professionalism, and personalized service has been outstanding. It's a pleasure doing business with them and I would definitely recommend them to others.

Mandeep, and her associates at Affinity Accountants, have been an exceptional resource in managing both my business and personal taxes. She is insightful and strategic in her advice, and thorough in her explanations. As a client, I have received not only the service of optimized tax filings, but an education on my options and guidance in long-term planning... at almost half the price of my previous accountant (who, though nice enough as a person, was less interested in smaller clients and provided a bare minimum of the above.) I consider myself lucky to have become a client of Mandeep's before her book fills up and she realizes she should be charging higher prices!
