By nature we are creative and innovative thinkers. We are also curious and highly empathetic. We fundamentally believe we can think up “better ways”, bring them to the world, and have them make a positive impact on those around us. It’s this passion that drives us in the accounting world: we know that small business accounting could be better, and we are out to change it to just that.
Nothing is more heartbreaking to us than hearing someone describe their current accounting services as “the bare minimum”. We were founded on the belief that small business owners should have the same access to professional support as larger companies. To us that means engaged, collaborative and proactive support.
Small business owners are more concerned with where they are going, than with where they have been in the past. And rightfully so. Unfortunately, traditional accounting doesn’t look forward. That’s why our services include budgets, forecasts and other planning tools. Success is then just a matter of execution.
Typically, small business accounting and bookkeeping is considered a “necessary evil”. Yet, there is tremendous value in it. The problem is that founders, professionals and entrepreneurs have other passions. That's why we call ourselves Twenty Eighty (“Pareto’s law”). With everyone focussing their strengths on what they love and what they’re great at, we believe we can create positive, disproportionate value.
We do things in that truly-done-for-you but work-with-you-so you win kind of way.
You’ll see a common thread in everything we do: we value what you love doing the most. Nine times out of ten, that means our primary focus is doing more for you… so you can do less.
To help you get to what you love, we set out to provide a complete finance function. That includes traditional functions like bookkeeping, payroll and tax, but also less thought about (but still important) jobs like forecasting, budget tracking, business planning and strategizing.
In order to do more for you, we need to know more about you. Because of that we value relationships a lot more than most. Does that mean extra lunches out? No. But it does mean you get a dedicated team. One that knows you and your business as if it were their own.
To free up more of your time, we offer a lot of things that you won’t see elsewhere: services such as budgeting, forecasting and cash flow management. But it’s not just what we do that helps, it’s also how we do it. Everything we offer is done to help reduce your workload, burdens and stress.
As a client of Twenty Eighty you will have more than one of these amazing people dedicated to your team. Take a look at who they are, what they do and what they’re all about. And feel free to reach out.
I’ve always loved business, technology, numbers and just generally helping people. Seeing those collide everyday, and the impact that they can have on someone else is truly amazing. It’s what makes this a real passion for me.
What I like most about my job is that it allows me to help other people be successful. If I can help with the accounting “detail work” and allow our clients to focus on their great ideas, that is a win-win position for me.
I became an accountant because of a simple formula, I had a passion for business and I was great at math. Bure more so, because my Grandpa, a business owner, was a huge mentor and inspiration.
I got into bookkeeping because I love puzzles, and I love helping people. I see accounting as a puzzle waiting to be solved. I find great satisfaction when everything matches up and makes sense, and that the information can be used to help a business to grow.
My favourite part about helping business with bookkeeping is alleviating stress. As a business owner, the last thing you need to be worrying about it whether or not you’re doing your bookkeeping and accounting right when you know that precious time could be used to build your business.
As a bookkeeper, my passion started with the love of math and business, but what drives me today is helping businesses succeed. As the world of accounting has changed and evolved, I have come to embrace new technologies and forward-thinking strategies.
I'm a highly motivated bookkeeper with a passion for helping businesses succeed. With my experience as a former business owner, I understand the importance of having accurate financial records, and I'm excited to help other businesses get their bookkeeping in order.
I grew up with a hockey coach that was a CPA and always admired the impact he made in both his personal and professional life. He helped everyone; his clients, neighbours, players on the team and everyone in between. I wanted to be able to do the same.
I consider myself a 'behind the scenes' individual - so I'm happy to pay attention to smaller details regarding bookkeeping and payroll. Every business needs this type of support - right??
