Accounting Services

MacPherson Roche Smith have developed a large client base over the past 30 years, representing a cross-section of businesses and organizations – ranging from large, complex business enterprises to small/medium owner managed enterprises to not-for-profit government or community-based organizations.

Accounting Services


We emphasize the importance of fostering and maintaining strong working relationships with our clients. Our senior professionals have in-depth business and financial reporting experience in a wide variety of industry sectors including manufacturing and processing, retail/wholesale, agriculture, aquaculture, biosciences, transportation, construction, tourism, energy, healthcare, food and beverage, accommodations, information technology and insurance/financial services.

Our firm provides a full range of accounting and assurance services; the most common of which is our involvement with an entity’s year-end financial statements. There are, generally, three types of year-end financial statement engagements that we complete for our clients:

Assurance: Traditionally referred to as an audit, it is the highest level of assurance provided to financial statement users.

Review: The scope of a review is less than that provided by an audit. Therefore, a review provides limited assurance that the financial statements are not materially misstated and is commonly used for owner-managed enterprises.

Compilation: Relies on client information, most commonly used for income tax purposes or internal management purposes.

The specific type of year-end engagement to be carried out is dependent on our client’s needs. For example, if a company has significant bank financing and/or a number of different shareholders, an audit or review engagement is normally recommended. On the other hand, if the primary reason for completing the year-end financial statements is for income tax purposes, a compilation engagement may best suit your needs.

In addition, we also provide monthly accounting services to meet the needs of our small business clients.

MacPherson Roche Smith has provided Amalgamated Dairies Limited (ADL) with thorough audit, tax preparation and business advisory services, to meet our fiscal management needs since 2008. In our relationship with MacPherson Roche Smith, we have received prompt attention, relevant information, and outstanding service. We appreciate the commitment to excellent customer care provided and consider MacPherson Roche Smith a valuable resource in the success of our Cooperative and the Island dairy industry.Gail Ellis, CPA, CMA – Corporate Secretary
