Why did we create Avalon?

Honestly, it was two-fold. One, we recognized a gap (read chasm) in straightforward, comprehensive accounting for small businesses. Our approach celebrates collaboration, enthusiasm and focus. Two, we are legit accounting aficionados, nerds and entrepreneurs who wanted our own kick-ass small business. Count on us for our expertise; stay with us for the reliability and a little buffoonery.

It's more than numbers.

Our driving force is both earnest and expressive. We find our work exciting and compelling. We are numbers nerds and people who care and want to further your success. It’s an honour and a true pleasure to do what we do. Plus, sometimes we’re funny (or corny, depending on your tastes).

OUR TEAM
We celebrate collaboration, enthusiasm and focus. Come for our expertise, stay for our reliability (and a bit of buffoonery). Meet the people behind the practice.
