Randy is honest,  a great listener, and not just a head nodder.  He is very deadline focused, we know this because he accomplished everything he offered and more on time.  Even when he was not feeling well, he still completed additional work.

Simply put, he is excellent at what he does, and moreover, he is compassionate and kind. He never made us feel judged, and was looking for the best way to accomplish our goals. He did everything in way that made us feel like we were part of the process.

He is as interested in our goals as we are. He also helped make this financially work for us, by figuring out ways we could do some of the work.  I do not know many people who are in business that truly put a clients needs in line with their own. Randy does, and he does this in spades.  My wife and I would recommend him to anyone needing Accounting, a Tax expert, and Bookkeeping expert.  These are the areas he worked with us on.

Not only has he found new clients we want him as a friend.

I went in what felt like “the end of the world problem”. I was greeted warmly and treated with a lovely smile and warm atmosphere. With in the hour the problem had been fixed, taxes filled and no tears.
Randy was even kind enough to listen to my silly stories of how I got myself into this situation. He never looked away or minimized my feelings. I am sending at least 2 girlfriends with similar problems to him.
I will see you next year Mr. Randy.God bless people like you.

I had a tax issue that seemed complex and somewhat intimidating, so I met with Randy to review the relevant information. Randy was extremely patient and decent, and took all of the time necessary to make sure that I understood the situation. I left that meeting very happy – not only because the issue had been resolved, but because I knew I’d found a tax professional to whom I’d return from that point onward. This five-star rating is truly deserved.

Thank you very much for helping me complete my taxes. I really appreciate the help and the ease of correspondence you’ve provided. I have recommended you to many of my friends. I will be in touch with you when I receive the T4’s and additional paperwork for the year of 2017.

Met with Randy recently to handle my company’s taxes. He was polite, knowledgeable and was an absolute pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate in recommending his business in handling your bookkeeping and tax needs. Great job!

Clark D’Cunha of Design Trunk

Randy did my tax last year. I will continue to use him – he answered my long list of questions and provided me my tax back quickly and without hassle. I definitely recommend Randy!

James Asquith

Randy Larson was amazing.  He took my several years’ of receipts, metamorphosing them into several years’ worth of income tax returns, all nicely bound for filing.  As someone experiencing anxiety in filing tax returns, I found him reassuring, thorough, and very quick.  I can give Focus Bookkeeping Ltd. my heartiest recommendation and Randy my most sincere appreciation for his friendship.

Victoria and I just wanted to drop you a somewhat belated note to say how much we enjoyed meeting with you, and to thank you for getting us up and running with QuickBooks.  We still have a ton of things to learn but are making a good start, and feel reassured that you are there!

Richard & Victoria at Amplified Electronics

Friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. Service doesn’t get much better or more personalized than this.

Shaun M

Randy was Incredibly helpful and answered all of my questions patiently and thoroughly. He even helped me discover items I should have previously been claiming on my taxes that other accountants had missed. A true professional who cares for his clients. My fiancé and I will definitely be back next tax season.

Fiona McLachlin

The team at Focused Bookkeeping is truly amazing! Randy is incredible knowledgeable and can help you with just about anything tax or business related. I started my own business last year and needed a ton of help with setting everything up and Randy was helpful every step of the way! I would recommend Focused Bookkeeping to anyone looking for great personal and professional service.

Jessie Ryan

Randy Larson did my taxes this year along with some of my family members. Randy is truly a remarkable accountant and individual. Nothing short of professional. He always had a smile on his face and laughter no matter how busy he was and had time to answer questions, either through the phone or through emails, and I had more than a few questions. If you are looking for a extraordinary accountant look no further than Randy Larson, he truly is the best

Danny Mior

My wife and I used them in 2016.  Great service and reasonable price.  Will definitely go back.

Robert Iantria

I would highly recommend Randy’s services – fast, friendly, efficient and effective.  The online appointment and reminder system makes it super easy to book a slot and everything can be done and dusted in a short about of time.  I really felt I was being listened to and he understood the nuances of my personal tax situation.  I will be returning for all my accounting needs in future.

Eric Keogh

I’ve gone here two years and have found Randy very helpful in terms of both information and being able to do well on my taxes. Very personable as well.

Jimmy Bates

Nothing but great things to say about Randy – genuine, friendly, efficient…I will definitely be returning next tax year & highly recommend him to others.

Mel Young

We first met Randy when he did our 2015 taxes, based on a recommendation by our old accountant who was retiring. The location of his office is very central and we met him at a day and time that was on very short notice.

Randy is polite, kind, courteous, patient and very knowledgable. He made us feel confident we were going to get the most out of our tax return and that he did!

I met him individually for guidance on becoming an employer recently when we hired a nanny and Randy spent a lot of time covering all the important facts including how to calculate deductions and the best way to remit them. I went in feeling overwhelmed but I left feeling at ease.

Last week, my husband and I met with Randy again for our 2016 taxes which he completed on the spot. He asks all the right questions (“has anything changed since we last met?”), and provided us with a summary of our return.  We can’t recommend Randy enough!!

Erna Wong

I went to see these guys to do my personal taxes. Randy made this process very comfortable, quick, and pain free. He’s a super nice fella too! I would highly recommend them to anyone who is not comfortable doing their own tax prep. I will definitely see him again next year.

Stephen Hare

The words tax return and wonderful don’t usually go together but in this case they do! Randy saw me without an appointment as he had a cancellation. Helped me file a return that was a little more complicated. Experienced, professional and funny! I can’t recommend highly enough. Thank you!

Lucy How

Thank you so much again for the session today, it was a great experience with you and will definately look forward to seeing you on the years to come.
