Jonathan and his team have been trusted business advisors for many years. They’ve helped us manage and plan an intergenerational business transition that works for all of us, and most importantly was tax efficient. We rely on them for regular advice and planning every step of the way in our business.

Mike Giannelli, MG Collision

For many years now we've been clients of Arbutus group. Whilst our businesses have benefited greatly from their professionalism, insight & expertise, on a personal level I've always felt they go the extra mile.From Jonathan's willingness to answer & engage emails very quickly to my interactions with other members of their wonderful team. I've only ever had positive experiences. I'm even often pleasantly surprised when I get my bill! Especially for personal taxes. The team at Arbutus group manage to strike a perfect balance of value & excellent service.

Nigel Springthorpe, Proprietor The Alibi Room, Brassneck Brewery, and Magnet

I have found Jonathan and Arbutus to be in an entirely different class in terms of expertise, service and friendliness. I am certain that Jonathan and Arbutus apply the same care, attention and effort to my accounting needs, as they do to their own. I have referred numerous friends and colleagues to Jonathan and Arbutus and everyone's experience has been the same as mine. I cannot say enough good things about Jonathan and his team and highly recommend them to everyone.

Dr. Andy Neitzel, MD, MSc, FRCP(C)
Clinical Assistant Professor, University of British Columbia, Critical Care and Cardiac Anesthesia

Jonathan and his team have been taking care of my personal tax needs for over 5 years. They’ve always been very responsive and proactive with creative tax planning ideas. Jonathan has also been able to assist with some of our start-up needs at Fispan too, helping to identify specific tax credit opportunities available to technology businesses that made raising capital that much easier. I recommend them.
