Rice & Co LLP Logo
Accounting for you.

Rice & Co is a modern CPA firm serving Alberta and BC. We’re not old, we don’t want your shoebox of receipts, and we don’t want to only talk to you at tax time. We work with owners who want to do better, who want to innovate, and who view their accountants as a partner, not just a cost of doing business.

Why do those clients want us? Because we are experts in automation and efficiency. An online accounting platform that connects to your bank, payroll, inventory and sales systems? Making expense claims as easy as Instagram? We can do that. A system that auto-fetches and records your bills each month? We can do that too. Through all this, we drastically reduce the time you spend on accounting, so you can focus more on what matters most to you.

If you think we’re the kind of accountants you’d like to work with, we’d love to hear from you.
