Gilmour Group CPAs have Merged with EPR CPAs

Grant Gilmour

I am thrilled to announce that effective November 1st, 2020, Gilmour Group CPAs have merged with EPR CPAs, a leading accounting and business advisory firm based in the Fraser Valley.

EPR has been in business for over 40 years, with a total of six partners, two locations, and over 30 professional staff, EPR provides an immediate and significant injection of bench strength enabling us to provide you with additional service offerings such as audits, reviews, and management consulting to complement our unique expertise in international tax, SR&ED, and Ecommerce.

This merger adds a world of new opportunities for all our clients, business partners and team. Strengthening our team will provide all of us with stability in navigating through these uncertain economic times. I firmly believe this merger has made us stronger and will benefit all of us for years to come.

As with all important business decisions, we will work closely with you to make the integration process as smooth as possible. We estimate the integration of both firms will take place over the next 24 months. Our entire team, whom you’ve grown very fond of, will continue to operate out of our North Langley office location as per usual. We are not moving location and are not changing the phone number.

To learn more about EPR CPAs and their team, visit their website. If you would like more information regarding this merger, I invite you to contact me directly.

To our continued growth and success!

Regards,
Grant Gilmour, B.Sc., MBA, CPA Canada, CA, CPA USA

What We Do

We help our clients to save on corporate taxes and other government charges. It can be shortsighted to try to save tax today when a "big picture view" can save future taxes and other government charges such as CPP and WCB.

Equally as important as good planning is good execution. Setting up your systems to manage your tax always reduces overall taxes, penalties and other tax surprises.

Corporate Income Tax is our specialty. The biggest opportunities to save corporate taxes are in 1) smart structures, 2) income splitting, and 3) avoiding double taxation, especially in international transactions.
