Who’s who in Collingwood

It’s an exciting time for Song & Associates, who have been helping small and medium-sized businesses improve accounting and business processes.

With the recent addition of new partner, Julie Ho, they have become Song & Ho Group LLP. Yes, Stephanie Song and Julie Ho, both chartered professional accountants, are teaming up to bring us the synergy that they have found when working as a team.

Song & Ho Group LLP go beyond numbers and tasks.

“We go out of our way to develop long-term, collaborative relationships with all of our clients.” This consultative approach, coupled with their depth of knowledge, experience and tools, has been valuable in helping their clients achieve profitability and growth.

They provide professional and personalized accounting, tax, and business advisory services to businesses. They offer complete bookkeeping services and consultation to help business owners reach their financial goals. Song & Ho Group can also give you a clear picture of the financial health of your business with their full range of accounting services.

For your business and personal tax needs, you will benefit from our strategic approach to tax preparation, tax filing, and tax planning. We have experience navigating a broad range of tax situations and can help you optimize your tax savings. We have also helped taxpayers with CRA audit and assisted our clients to correct their tax affairs with CRA through Voluntary Disclosure Program.

It’s funny how Stephanie and Julie originally met, or didn’t meet, as the case may be.

They only really met a few months ago, but then realized that they were in the same graduating class together at Simon Fraser University way back in 1995. Yes, these now seasoned professionals, with nearly 40 years of business, accounting, and tax experience between them, have teamed up to bring you the best of both worlds. “We were a perfect match in business as our skills complement one another.

Julie, originally from Hong Kong, enjoys cooking, singing in her singing group, and playing the piano. Stephanie is originally from Malaysia and loves the outdoors: camping, hiking, skiing and cycling.

They are able to serve you in Cantonese, Mandarin, and English.

January is a good time to come and see them to get your taxes ready. In February, they will be partnering with Vancity, Collingwood Community Branch, to offer the community financial literacy presentations on taxation topics at the Renfrew Library (Renfrew and E22nd) on Feb 2, and Collinwood Library (Rupert and Kingsway) on February 9, from 7 to 8 pm.
