Expert Online Tax Preparation

We provide expert online tax preparation for individuals and businesses across Canada.

We transformed our tax preparation services to the online world a few years ago. We now serve hundreds of individuals and businesses across Canada, in the USA and in 12 other countries. This approach has been particularly successful since the COVID 19 pandemic but we initiated the transition to cloud-based tax preparation based on what tax firms in the USA had already started.

Providing safe secure online tax preparation with expert advice ensures the best possible outcomes for our clients, with more convenience and confidence that the returns are being prepared by professionals at a reasonable price, and taxpayers are comfortable that they are filing on time.

Online Tax Services Offered

If you’re looking for a pain free tax filing experience go to Randy Larson. He’s a seasoned professional that will not only help you with your tax return, he’ll do it on the spot, in 9 minutes, with a kind smile, thoroughly,  and at the right price.

I got the peace of mind my return was accurate and also some valuable tips. And he was genuinely “on my side”.

Martin V

Randy was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful with all my questions. I have a lot of anxiety when it comes to doing anything regarding numbers and Randy made the entire process very easy. The icing on the cake- Very personable and truly cares about his clients.

Jill Monohan

Couldn’t be more pleased with my experience.  Fast, friendly and professional. Most importantly, I am provided with great peace of mind, knowing my books and tax return are accurate and up to date.

Anami V

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.

Steve H

I began using Mr. Larson’s services a couple of years ago, and am extremely pleased with the results. He has constantly been fast, very helpful, full of good advice, accurate, and a genuine pleasure to sit down with. Randy has been very helpful with answering the odd question via email during the year also- a sign that he really cares about his clients.

Previously I had another tax specialist who was also very good, but I found their prices were WAY out of line- they were charging me ‘per sheet’ for every investment slip I brought in- one year my tax return cost me almost $400. Meaning, if I had 10 different investment statements, I would get charged a fee for calculating each one into my return- pretty asinine way of charging.

i would not hesitate to highly recommend Focused Bookkeeping to anyone needing good tax representation. Highly genial fellow as well- I look forward to seeing him at tax time!

Thanks Randy- keep up the great work!

Steve M

This guy is great. He is very knowledgeable about small business and provided me with excellent advice.  He is very personable and patient and he is willing to explain things.. I am so glad I went with Focused Bookkeeping!

Sands D

I went to Randy Larsen on the recommendation of other yelpers and couldn’t have been more pleased.

Randy is friendly and personable. He took the time to thoroughly explain my tax return and answer all of my questions.

He took all the stress out of the process.

I will definitely be a repeat customer and have already referred him to friends.

Kat D

I just had a great experience with Randy! Other reviewers are absolutely right when they say he is extremely kind, friendly and professional. Taxes give me lots of anxiety and Randy’s approach put me at ease. He was very sympathetic with my less than stellar outcome (he double & triple checked the numbers were right!) and helped soften the blow. I will definitely be coming back to see Randy for all my future accounting needs.

Colleen G

I only ever had contacted one accountant, and I am glad I chose Focused Bookkeeping. Randy is very knowledgeable, non-judgemental (in terms of me not knowing a lot about what I came to him for help), very positive and on-point.

Next time I need help with anything accounting-related, I know where I will go. Thank you!

Simple V

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 H

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.
