Ledgers Canada and Loyalty Business Services have created a partnership to expand both companies in Canada and the U.S.
As a part of the collaboration, Loyalty Business Services will become Ledgers USA to enhance brand awareness throughout North America.
The newly formed Ledgers team is comprised of leaders from several different successful companies to create a bookkeeping, tax, payroll, and compliance reporting firm servicing owners of small businesses throughout Canada and the United States.
The team includes Gordon Haslam, who founded Ledgers Canada more than 25 years ago, John Hewitt, who has built two of the three largest retail income tax service companies and has more than 52 years of experience building successful, major companies, and Steve Rafsky, who oversaw the growth of Padgett Business Services for almost 20 years.
Ledgers Canada and Ledgers USA will offer tax preparation and consultation, payroll management, financial reporting, and other cloud-based services.
The firm will expand its locations through its affiliation and franchising models. In addition, the companies will enhance work capacity for its locations by offering access to Ledgers central team of professionals.
“I am excited to expand with the Loyalty team,” said Haslam. “This collaboration will help both companies grow and prosper through experience, strong leadership, enhanced systems, and innovative marketing.”
Ledgers Canada was founded by a team of chartered accountants in 2004 and is based in Newmarket, Ont. The company has more than 40 franchised locations across Canada.
