Accounting plus: Where businesses find all the professional help they need

Successful businesses need to be nimble and adaptable in an environment where circumstances, risks and opportunities change quickly. And when businesses turn to outside professionals for help, it’s essential that those advisors also adapt quickly to the new regulations, realities and challenges.

Over the past few years, Manning Elliott Accountants and Business Advisors has undergone a purposeful evolution to become one of the most well-respected and progressive mid-sized firms in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. With 200+ dedicated professionals and staff, the firm has expanded the services it offers and increased its locations to now include offices in Vancouver, Burnaby, Surrey and Abbotsford.

To celebrate and acknowledge this transformation, Manning Elliott is positioning its new brand identity  to reflect these changes.

"Business is evolving rapidly, and so is Manning Elliott," said managing partner Alden Aumann.

The rebrand showcases ways in which the firm has grown in capacity and capability. “It better represents who we are as a firm and where we are going in the future — a firm that is bold, modern and professional, while building upon its reputation of trust among its longstanding clients,” Aumann says.

By trusting and relying on the expert services that Manning Elliott provides, clients have the resources that enable them to enjoy everything that life in British Columbia has to offer.

Clients have turned to Manning Elliott for accounting, assurance and tax services since 1952. These remain its core strength; however, many businesses don’t have the time or inclination to seek out other service providers to help with specific needs in more complex or challenging areas such as tax and transition planning, regulatory compliance, cross-border tax compliance and planning, international expansion, and internal business re-organization. Manning Elliott has retained some of the best advisors who bring a wealth of knowledge to these aspects of business management.

“We have a full suite of in-house business services that extend from the pre-planning stage to the final exit stage,” Alden says. “Regardless of what stage of the business life cycle a client is in, we have the resources and expertise to provide that client with assistance.”

The completely revamped website and blog, provide timely information for those who want instant insight into some of the more pressing issues facing their business today. Responding to current trends and regulations, and tapping into the expertise and experience of its professional staff, the blog provides a reassuring perspective that is further enhanced by one-to-one advisory assistance.

Areas of industry specialization among the offices include, but are not limited to, agriculture and food services, blockchain and cryptocurrency, cannabis, construction, craft breweries, mining and exploration, oil and gas, real estate, first nations, financial services, as well as technology.

In order to achieve such market dominance, Manning Elliott is continually building on its solid foundation of trusted and experienced CPAs, who take pride in their careers with the firm. It also strives to attract the best and brightest business students by positioning itself as the firm of choice for accounting graduates. 

“We hire dozens of students every year and take them through intense internal training as Chartered Professional Accountants,” says Aumann, who has been with the firm for 21 years. “We also offer them a lot of support, especially through our mentoring program. From day one they focus on a career path that enhances their professional goals.”

Proud traditions. Bold visions. Stronger businesses. That’s Manning Elliott.
