Randy Larson is an expert at preparing tax returns and providing intelligent advice to minimize current and future taxes for his clients.

He founded Focused Bookkeeping Ltd in 1996 (28 years ago) in order to provide bookkeeping and tax preparation for individuals and small businesses in Greater Vancouver, BC.

He has since worked with clients in 26 countries, helping newcomers to understand the Canadian tax system and guiding individuals leaving Canada to understand the tax implications and things they need to do.

Randy’s philosophy is to listen to clients describe their situation and ask about what their financial goals are in the future. He will then develop strategies to address missed opportunities for tax reduction on past tax returns, and propose strategies for current and future tax years.
