Professional and Personal expertise
We have a small corporation and have been clients for a few years now. We are extremely pleased with the professional, ethical and friendly team at MacGillivray. We have always received nothing but quality service and advice. They care about us, our business and our future, in every way. We couldn't have done it without them, and consider them part of our team. We highly recommend them.
Personalized expert advice
I have been a client of MacGillivray for the past five years and am extremely pleased with the level of personalized service, high ethical standards and quality of advice I continue to receive. I moved all my personal and business affairs over to MacGillivray because I felt I was not getting the kind of tax planning advice I needed from my previous accounting firm. MacGillivray got to know my needs, both from a business and personal point of view and helped me to set up an optimal corporate structure that blended these two sides nicely together. George, Brian and Dave have guided me with sound financial and tax advice during the growth of my business and subsequent divestiture. I consider them part of my informal advisory board and make a point of meeting with them before making any large decision. I would highly recommend them!
Prior to working with MacGillivray the auditor we used did no upfront preplanning on our account. Everything was done "after the fact" at year end when it was too late to change anything. With MacGillivray we did review meetings during the year to ensure that the company was on track with current regulations but more specifically with new regulations that the company was not aware of. We never got surprised at year end with new regulations that the company could have taken action to comply with had we known. All of the partners and staff at MacGillivray act professionally, in a very responsive mannner and really work as part of our team. Getting information, particularly on tax matters was very timely compared to the other audit firm that did not have tax expertise in house. Wish we had started using MacGillivray years before we actually did.
