At our firm, our group is always at your contact point regardless of your tax, accounting, or payroll needs.  We will provide you with well-rounded advice, considering all relevant elements of your business. Our team members work together to find the best course of action for our clients.   

We know that navigating Canadian tax rules can be complex and confusing for companies from outside Canada.  We work with our clients to take care of the many filing requirements, ensure that deadlines are met, explain the details and theory, as required, and work with our client to grow successful businesses in Canada.  

We work closely with the lawyers of our clients to ensure that all legal and tax requirements are fulfilled and all parties understand what is being done by whom. This is necessary as the allocation of legal, and accounting and tax services is different in Canada than it is in Japan.  Manning Elliott has years of experience working with Japanese investors in Canada.
