Expert Tax Preparer
Randy Larson is an expert at preparing tax returns and providing smart advice to minimize current and future taxes for his clients.
He founded Focused Bookkeeping Ltd in 1996 (24 years ago) in order to provide bookkeeping, tax preparation and business consulting services to individuals and small businesses in Greater Vancouver, BC.
He is tech savvy and keeps his eye on new developments in accounting and tax software, practice management software and ways to communicate more effectively with clients.
Five years ago, he noticed that his US tax preparation peers were preparing taxes through an online portal. That approach has proven to be successful. Many financial firms are meeting online through Zoom and Cisco Webex. The availability of online accounting packages has exploded in recent years. Examples include QuickBooks Online, Xero, Wave Accounting and Kashoo.
Focused on Tax Services
In 2018, Mr. Larson re-focused the firm into tax preparation services and discontinued the bookkeeping division. This enabled him to develop his understanding and expertise in Canadian and US taxes. He has since worked with clients in 12 countries
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.
