Accountants Only

On-Core Bookkeeping believes accountants are our clients, too! We work hand-in-hand to bring the best possible service to our mutual clients in the Edmonton & Sherwood Park area.

What can you expect from On-Core?

Our Staff & Our Knowledge Base

Our staff members are all trained bookkeepers. We have weekly meetings to discuss our workload and any issues internally so our lines of communication are always open.

The company is designed so that work or knowledge is not dependent upon one person. For the best possible service, we match the knowledge we have against the requirements of a particular account. We ensure there are backups in place by having multiple people trained in different areas. All of our bookkeepers have slightly different specialties, and we do our best to match the skill to the client or the work required.

All of our bookkeepers have some degree of formal education. We have mandatory “education moments,” meaning, our employees are expected to further their knowledge and education in the bookkeeping industry.

We take extra steps to avoid turnover within our company, believing that if the staff are happy, then the clients are happy. We pay market rates, offer benefits, and encourage social interaction amongst the employees – this creates a favorable working environment which, in turn, increases productivity.

IPBC_CPB_color_logoThe owner, Chris Maynes CPA, is hands-on in the business by being involved in the bookkeeping community, and encourages staff to be part of the IPBC – Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada (  We have some staff members that are Certified Professional Bookkeepers. This means that they have been certified by the IPBC, having passed their exams and get continuing ongoing continuing education credits.

Training is mandatory for all of our staff.

Reporting to you, the Accountant

On-Core provides you with full reporting at the accounts year-end to give you the highlights of what has happened throughout the year. We will give you an idea of how we approached the bookkeeping and advise of potential pitfalls or areas of concern. We clearly highlight for you what requires review and/or discussion with your client

Canada Revenue Agency

Fully authorized, we can access all client accounts online. All CRA accounts are reviewed twice a year (calendar with payroll and at the year-end). We ensure the client is aware of their debt and their upcoming expenses. We can give clients a 12 month future overview so they know what to anticipate.

On-Core also has a direct payment service in place so we can debit a client’s bank account and pay their CRA bills on time. This prevents penalties and interest for being late!

The Financial Statements

The most important thing is accurate financial statements. We take pride in our accuracy and how it affects an accountants job. Our diligence greatly reduces the number of hours your staff will spend on our files & we think you will be pleasantly surprised.

We use a standard chart of accounts to identify items specifically and clearly so you can make good decisions based on the clients transactions.
