Our Founder

Bill Kelsall

Bill Kelsall 1944 - 2013

Bill graduated with a Diploma of Technology in Business Administration from the British Columbia Institute of Technology in 1968. In 1971 he opened the first public accounting office in the downtown core of Qualicum Beach, British Columbia.

Bill worked tirelessly for the next 42 years at the helm of the business, growing with the community and its needs for accounting, bookkeeping, financial reporting and tax work. He enjoyed the challenge of compiling and researching the information that was necessary to achieve the best outcome for his client’s with the tax department. Many a time he would work in what he referred to as “the gray area”, always with the goal that it would be of benefit to the client.

His drive to provide the client with the best possible result was only one of his legacies that will be carried on within the firm, he set a high standard for us to follow.

A quote from Bill:

“It’s not just adding and subtracting – it’s knowing what to do with the numbers when you have them - of always thinking ahead towards the end result.”
