Aletha Hanson, Director, Independent Data Services
“As a director of a growing IT services company in Asia, IDS, with a small sales office in Calgary, in early 2006 was looking for a local accounting consultancy that could be responsive online, support our employees in Canada and interact with head office via email and QuickBooks. I found A K Ross to be just the advisor we sought. As IDS has grown, A K has met our increasingly varied needs, in a timely, resourceful, friendly and cost-effective manner.”
Tessa Marie Parent, Owner, Tessa Marie Photography Inc.
“A.K. handled my taxes since I started my small business in 2009. A.K. is thorough and organized, and I’ve always felt confident that his expertise has helped my business save money and move in the right direction. In 2014 I incorporated, and A.K. was able to walk me through the process of incorporating, determining a share structure, selling my assets to the new company, and setting up the finances to my best advantage. I also had him take over my bookkeeping so that I could focus on what I do best, while trusting that A.K. had all my finances in order. In 2016 when I moved near Edmonton and thus began working with a local bookkeeper, A.K. was very helpful with providing all my records and documents to ensure a smooth transition. I would recommend A.K. to anyone starting a small business who wants more than just an accountant or bookkeeper, but someone who can advise them on their business as well.”

“For me to be successful as a small business owner, I need people who are experts in their field and most important, people I can trust. With A.K. Ross – I have found both.”
Glenda & Wendy, Directors, 763984 Alberta Limited
“We have partnered with A.K. since 2009 for both corporate and personal tax compliance and planning – and are grateful for his knowledge base and integrity. We are ‘hands-on’ clients, and A.K. is always willing to advise and guide, without being controlling. We appreciate both his attention to detail and understanding of the broader aspects of being a successful small business.”
Eric Jozsa, B. Kin, Owner, Intensity Fitness Corp.
“As a small business owner with little experience in the bookkeeping department, I’ve leaned on A.K. to advise me on the best practices to stay organized and efficient with my accounting. A.K.’s extremely patient with my lack of knowledge and has been more than happy to re-explain certain concepts to me, year after year. I have worked with other accountants previous to hiring A.K. and they were considerably more expensive and less thorough. The staff he entrusts with handling the administration of some components of the year end process are also very experienced and helpful. A.K. is very personable and is the type of person that you could trust with more than just your books!”
Marjie, Former Accounts Manager, Universal Ventilation Ltd.
“Your professionalism and thoroughness is always commendable and at a fair rate. You are not just an accountant, you are also a good business advisor, who continually offers advice and provides information to serve the best interest of the company, always.”
Bill Brooks, President, Brooks Corp; Society Editor, Calgary Herald
“I have worked with AK Ross for the past eight years. AK has prepared and filed Brooks Corp. year end and tax returns. I have also consulted frequently with AK on personal tax matters. It has been a pleasure working with AK all these years. His attention to detail, ability to translate accounting issues into plain language and his prompt and efficient services are beyond question superior in all aspects. I would not hesitate to recommend the services AK Ross provides and I look forward to many more years of working together.”
Dennis and Charlene Hagel, Owners, 1278372 Alberta Ltd. (formerly, Innisfail Bowling Lanes Ltd.)
“When we purchased our business 14 years ago, AK was the accountant. We decided to continue using his services for both our corporate and personal taxes, a decision we have never regretted. Over the years we have come to rely on his vast knowledge regarding our needs and his professionalism has been outstanding. He makes himself available to assist us in a very timely manner for which we are very appreciative of. We would not hesitate to recommend AK as a tax specialist.”
Mark Rees, Director, Adept Innovations Ltd.
“AK has always provided excellent service for my business and personal accounting and tax needs. I highly recommend using him if you need assistance!”
