Established in March 2006, The Accounting Store offers a comprehensive solution for your bookkeeping, accounting, tax, and business development needs. This rapidly growing accounting firm in Burnaby is the brainchild of Glenn Plunkett, who first came to the idea when he realized the value of keeping financial records on track and having access to sound tax advice when he owned a real estate brokerage firm.
Bringing his solid accounting and business experience from high-level positions as a controller for the Canadian Armed Forces and Director of Finance for a multinational manufacturing and marketing company, Glenn brought The Accounting Store to life.
Our team’s mission is simple: To help small- and medium-sized business owners succeed by supporting them in the financial aspects of their business, so they can live the life they’ve always wanted.
Although we have been privileged to work with a wide range of small businesses in various industries, we have specialized knowledge of the eCommerce niche.
This means we are not your typical general accountants who are not familiar with the specific financial processes and transactions made in online businesses. Unlike most other accounting firms, we know the kind of accounting and business support needed by online merchants who use Amazon, Shopify, or WooCommerce, and particularly those who manufacture their own products and sell direct.
From managing your inventory and cost of goods sold to reconciling your sales receipts and handling your sales tax and paying international staff and suppliers– our team can serve as your external accounting department that leverages cloud-based technologies and innovative apps to meet your unique business needs efficiently.
We do more than just crunching numbers. Beyond bookkeeping, accounting, and tax, our business experience, and industry expertise allows us to serve as your trusted business advisor who will be with you consistently throughout your journey.
For The Accounting Store, you are not just a number. We take the time to explain complex issues in a language you understand and establish a personalized, accommodating atmosphere by being available whenever you need guidance.
As a modern accounting firm, we firmly believe in the power of cloud technology to streamline processes, bring time- and cost-savings, as well as reduce the hassle of time-consuming and tedious back-office functions. Some of the latest and globally-recognized apps that we use include Xero, A2X, OFX, and Katana.
