IMAGINE IF TAX SEASON WAS NO LONGER A PANIC INDUCING ANNUAL AFFAIR?
Imagine if you could put your head on your pillow and think about how good it feels to know where my money is going?
Imagine having the knowledge and the tools to actually make tax time simple?
Imagine feeling like you are in control of this inescapable part of life?
Messy finances and lack of tax knowledge leaves your successful business vulnerable to making costly mistakes, missing write-offs, or filing with errors making you more susceptible to a CRA audit.
So no wonder you worry, but these worries lead to sleepless nights or avoidance tactics that just perpetuate the situation. Inevitably you will stumble your way through, cross your fingers and file your taxes….only to have this stressful cycle begin again the very next year.
Money and taxes are not taught in most schools, and not enough business courses cover these essential topics. It can be hard to know where to turn to fill this important knowledge gap (until now!)
We are willing to take bets that you are great at what you do. You’re a talented entrepreneur, who is capable, resourceful and ready to check this final missing box off your must-learn list - which is exactly what you can do here.

"For years I would feel sick to my stomach every April as tax season approached. I never felt like I was prepared or really even understood large aspects of accounting within my business. Taking Grow CPA's Solopreneur Tax Academy was one of the best investments I not only made in my business but in myself. Ashli and Martina's program helped answer so many of my questions and fix a few errors but more importantly it helped empower me to take better financial control over my business. So grateful for this program and I cannot suggest it enough!"
- Emma Jack - Press Play Physio

I really appreciate everything your team does and can't wait to spread the word about your amazing-ness!“
