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.

Accounting for you.

Rice and Company LLP was formed in 2011 and is based out of Calgary, Alberta. We specialize in audit services for Exempt Market Offerings. Additionally, the firm also provides Corporate Governance and Internal Control Services. We also cater to the preparation of Notice to Readers and taxation guidance for high net worth individuals and corporations.​

Our Services

Virtual CFO

A CFO is a critical partner in planning for the growth and success of your business. However, not every business needs or can afford a full-time CFO, and often push the role on their bookkeeper or controller. Our virtual CFO services allow you to access the experienced executives you need, on a hourly or fixed fee basis.

We know every business is different, so we customize our offerings to match your needs. Our services  can include assistance with financial reporting, budgeting and forecasting, managing cash flow, and obtaining external investment or funding.

Financial Statements & Tax Preparation
We offer Notice to Reader financial statements and tax services for corporations and their owners. Additionally, we can assist you in dealing with the CRA, including filings, inquiries and audits.
online bookkeeping & Payroll

Snap pictures of your receipts and let us do the rest. We are proud to partner with Xero, the best online accounting system in the world, to offer you simple, paperless record keeping.  With automatic bank reconciliations, iOS and Android apps, and one-click reporting, Xero gives you the information you need to make the important business decisions.

Alongside Xero, we recommend PaymentEvolution, a modern, online-only,  100% Canadian, payroll solution. Featuring an intuitive interface, ePay, custom employee portals, and a direct feed into Xero, payroll can be done in as little as 30 seconds.

Audits

Rice & Co provides audit services to private entities, not-for-profits and non-reporting issuer exempt market participants. We are able to audit financial statements under ASPE, ASNPO or IFRS.
