Our Clients Reviews

I have been with CEBS for 12 years, right from the beginning of my company. Everything, such as GST, year end filings, and other remittances have always been prepared and paid on time. They seem to be always looking for ways to make things run more efficiently when comes to ways to make it easier for their clients.

Emily and her team are awesome. Very professional. Great to talk to, and if a person doesn’t know the answer to my questions, they go out of their way to find out. They are always ready to help when help was needed and go above and beyond. In our time working together, I have always been satisfied.

~Richard Rumbolt

The crew at CEBS has given me and my company the freedom of not stressing about keeping up with all the bookkeeping and important documents in order. Always so pleasant to speak with when doing business, also they listen to what you are looking for and what is best for your company’s needs to run at full potential. I would absolutely refer CEBS to a colleague and anyone that is looking for a company that is friendly and completely the best at what they do.
