For Suzanne Cody and Gwyneth James, the chance to work together seemed like too good of an opportunity to pass up. After working on their own for years following the acquisition of their Certified General Accountant (CGA) designations, the women joined forces in 2013 to form Cody & James CGAs, which had been known as TCP Accounting & Tax Services for the previous 25 years.

Currently located at 1434 Chemong Road, Unit 3, in Northview Commerce Court, the firm is about to break ground beside Portage Place thanks to a recent purchase of land made by the women and another investor, Darryl Goodall of Part-time CFO Services. They plan on creating a 3-unit office building with ample space and parking, keeping it accessible for their clients who come from as far as Cobourg and Bancroft. Work on this project is set to begin this month (December 2014), which everyone is excited about!

Cody and James is a full service firm with the goal to be “the accounting department for your small business”. They offer multiple services including some you won’t find done by larger firms.

There are many obvious reasons why using an accountant is probably in your best interest. As an individual, a lack of knowledge in the tax system can be a real hindrance. People who do their own taxes can easily miss valuable credits and/or make errors that can cause issues after the filing process. Businesses who work on their own accounting issues often times can lose focus on using their talents where they're needed most. These distractions can lead to mistakes in an area where no one has the necessary background or training to succeed.

Breaking ground on new location!

This is where Cody & James come in. They're a mid-sized firm of 7 professionals who are easy to work with and incredibly thorough without having that intimidating feeling that some large corporations can carry. They get their client's work done worry-free so the owners can focus on growing their own business. They're one of a very select few accounting firms who do all of the financial tasks for a company, including bookkeeping and payroll which many accountants turn away from even though they are necessary tasks. As trained experts in the field, they can take care of your business’ financial headaches to keep your focus where it needs to be.

Partners Suzanne and Gwyneth along with the rest of their caring staff want to make your experience with them as seamless as possible. If you have any questions or concerns about accounting and how it is affecting your business or brand, they would be more than happy to tackle the issues at hand for you to relieve any unnecessary stress it’s sure to cause.
