Who we are:

ConnectCPA LLP is not your traditional accounting firm. We are an online/virtual firm, paperless, and tech savvy. We are growing rapidly, and are in search of a team member that meshes with our unique firm culture.

We are a Licensed Chartered Professional Accounting (CPA) firm that operates with a startup mentality: We experiment, we collaborate, we embrace new technologies and we have fun doing it.

We are breaking every “accounting firm” stereotype: We dress casually, we use Slack and Zoom to communicate and we have a culture of trying new things everyday.

Why us?

We’ve been there before. You are unhappy because you work in a bureaucratic culture where you are told how to dress, what hours to work and your voice is not being heard.

At ConnectCPA we want you to enjoy your career and here is how we make it happen:

  • You will be working from your home office (who doesn't love that?)
  • You will have autonomy and control over your schedule
  • We don’t track time!
  • We will provide you with a brand new laptop
  • Everyone's opinions and ideas are valued on how we can improve the firm
  • We are a diverse firm with an easy-going culture
  • Fully paid for health and dental benefits
  • No formalwear required
  • You'll join us on our annual team retreat, where we get to relax, hang out and improve the firm. Pictures from our last few retreats can be found HERE and HERE.

What is the role?

  • Manage client relationships all the way from onboarding to tax filings
  • Preparation of financial statements, corporate tax and sales tax returns
  • Research tax issues and draft CRA letters
  • Identify tax-planning opportunities

Required Education and Experience

  • At least 1 year experience in public practice, with a good understanding of Notice to Reader Financial Statement and Corporate Tax Return preparation
  • University Education

Required Skills

  • You have excellent communication skills (both written and verbal)
  • Hyper-organized
  • Social, presentable and well spoken - we want our clients to love you!
  • You are independent, highly motivated and a self-starter
  • You are a multi-tasker and can manage multiple clients simultaneously
  • Strong work ethic
  • Tech savvy

Other Skills and Requirements

  • A love for technology and the ability to learn new software/apps quickly
  • An understanding of the ins and outs of how an accounting system works: Invoicing, payables, bookkeeping, tax rates, etc. (not required, but an asset)
  • Strong internet connection - at least 6MBPS upload and 6MBPS download speeds

If you are selected for an interview, you'll be asked to submit a one-way video application.
