Jordan Cahill's Interview with "Lonsdale Avenue"
We were recently featured in Lonsdaleave.ca- a local online source for businesses and events on Lonsdale Avenue in North Vancouver. Our partner Jordan Cahill was interviewed about how Cahill CPA got started, what brought us to the North Shore, what we do here, and more. We've included a portion of the interview below, and if you would like to read the full article, you can find it here.
Jordan was asked How did you get started with Cahill CPA and why did you choose North Vancouver?
Cahill CPA’s foundation is our family. My father Wayne Cahill has been an accountant for over 35 years, and so you can say it’s in our blood!
I went into accounting after completing a business degree at SFU, and I received my CPA designation while working at a firm downtown. My brother Taylor, Wayne and I decided to open an accounting firm together and soon merged with a North Vancouver firm where we partnered with another local accountant Janice Tai. We initially opened an office off Lonsdale on West 17th, but soon grew out of this space, and moved to our current location at West 15th.
Wayne and Taylor were living in North Vancouver, and we all fell in love with this natural paradise! Along with the vibrant and friendly community, and all it has to offer for young families, I moved here 3 years ago with my wife and our young son (and have since added our daughter!).
What can local business owners do to improve their accounting generally day to day?
One of our biggest tips, and simplest, is to stay organized. Using online cloud accounting software and learning the best way to set up your day to day bookkeeping is very beneficial. Our staff is trained to help you with that set up and any trouble shooting you may need. Also, make sure to keep receipts, records of transactions, invoices, etc so they’re available if needed (and try not to make this a grocery bag filled with crumpled papers!)
In addition, stay on top of your taxes and finances. It’s easier to solve an issue or problem when it comes up, instead of letting it build up and snowball into a greater (and often more expensive) problem. When you work with Cahill CPA, we are your accountant all year round. We are here whenever you need us, and we are always staying on top of deadlines and payments, finding ways to save you money, and making sure you avoid unnecessary taxes or penalties.
