We're a Calgary-based bookkeeping and consulting service that provides accurate and affordable bookkeeping and accounting services, software solutions and training as well as consultation to small and medium sized businesses.

We take pride in our approach, our values and our experience

Firm Approach

THE FIRM APPROACH

We're not like the other guys. We don't disappear each month with your financial transactions only to return with crunched numbers and financial reports you don't fully understand.

As your personal trainer, we take a FIRM approach. That means we're:

We meet you where you’re located . We can provide affordable accounting and bookkeeping services offsite, onsite and where ever you are in your finances, budget or experience. We also offer cloud based accounting, which gives us and you the flexibility to update accounting data anywhere, any place and any time.

Just like a fitness coach, we can help you set goals and provide immediate feedback and insight on your questions and situation. This includes ongoing communication about your financial performance, and the decisions and legalities that shape how finances flow in and out of your business.  No need to book appointments – we’re standing by, ready to respond the moment you’re faced with a question or decision.

Rigor is all about accuracy, completeness and effectiveness. We begin your financial fitness regimen by sitting down with you and looking at all aspects of your business in order to maximize your financial goals. Next, we put solid checks and balances in place to ensure accuracy and attention to detail. Financial analyses normally performed by service providers every quarter are undertaken each month at Censea so any potential issues or gaps are identified early.

Let’s face it. Numbers can be pretty boring. We aspire to transform your financial fitness into a fun, growth-enhancing and positive experience. We involve our clients where appropriate so they are empowered through key decisions and understand what they are paying for. Keeping your books in shape does not have to be stressful, strenuous or expensive.  We love numbers, and we love what we do. This is our livelihood, so we’re motivated to keep your business through unwavering dedication and accuracy.

We’re also pretty experienced at this which means you can trust us to do it right, while you continue focusing on what motivates you – running your business.

WHY CENSEA

We live and work by the following values so we can assure our clients their financials are in trusted hands:

We stick by our word and follow the best practices of Generally Accepted Accounting Principals (GAAP) as set forth by the Canadian Accounting Standards Board and International Accounting Standards Board. Clients can rest assured their financial information will be kept confidential and managed legally, ethically and transparently.

There is no grey area when it comes to numbers. The calculations are either right or wrong. Our unwavering promise is our dedication to accuracy which we ensure through solid processes, checks and balances, and frequent review and analyses. Our experience underpins the confidence we have to strive for consistently accurate results.

We partner with our clients to build trust. We’re not just a business function operating in a silo; client involvement and service excellence is integral to the growth of your business and the reputation of our business. A positive relationship means we begin every client relationship with thorough consultation and exploration of each business, its structure, issues and needs. It means our clients are not afraid they will incur extra charges by phoning Censea at odd times to ask questions. It means information flows both ways through open channels of communication.

Why Censea?

Alyssa Schmidt | Personal Tax Client

 

Professional service and on budget. While these are the key factors in any business solution, it is always above and beyond when they are accompanied by an open and kind demeanor. Capital Assessment will certainly be a repeat client.

Sean Shore | Capital Assessments Inc. February 2017
      Jennifer is a tremendously dedicated and talented accountant. The level of professionalism she displays is unparalleled and shows through her work. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jennifer on a few projects, and her role was instrumental in the success of each one. Not only were the clients satisfied, but the CRA was too. Making each side happy can be a daunting task, but Jennifer does it well.

 

    Any business owner who is struggling most likely doesn’t have proper bookkeeping and procedures in place. Calling Jennifer should be the first thing to do. Every business has profited on their investment in her, and continue to do. Any business owner who is serious about growing should consider Jennifer as a prime contact.

 


Alex Kos | Skyline Tax & Accounting Services

Jennifer is very talented and knowledgeable when it comes to her craft. I have had the pleasure of working close to her for some time now. From her gentle and caring personality, to her ability and willingness to get the job done well (and right the first time), she is an asset to any entrepreneur or business owner.

I highly recommend giving her a call, giving her a chat to see how she can benefit you and your business with her accounting expertise

Michael Lindenbach | Calgary Trusted Cleaners

I have been working with Jennifer a while and her work has been nothing less of exemplary.

Our firm believes that Bookkeeping is the foundation of ANY business and knowing that Jennifer is working on a job makes it easy in getting the books through the process makes it easier to work with.

Because of her training and being a Certified Bookkeeper, she is fast, concise and knows what needs to be done. Weather it is a shoe-box of receipts, a complicated set of books or ledger. She knows exactly what to do.
