Generally speaking, most accountants are "reactive" since their training emphasizes the processing and analysis of past transactions. The consulting arm of the Ascent Team was specifically created to overcome this problem. Within this arm, we have created a number of programs, processes and seminars designed to be "proactive" by helping our clients create strategies to become more profitable.
The Ascent Partnership LLP, Chartered Accountants
The Ascent Partnership LLP, Chartered Accountants is a partnership of two individuals, Stephen Lim and Henry Yan. Both partners were trained by "Big-Six" international accounting firms and both were also former corporate controllers of large corporations.
This unique training combination enables the partners to provide clients with not only a technical approach in resolving problems, but also the practical experience to assist them in running their businesses.
The partners previously operated two separate public practice accounting firms in the downtown Vancouver area. On July 1, 1997, the partners merged their respective practices On that merger date, the partners decided to change the way they looked at their practice.
A fallacy held by many public practice accountants is the idea that accounting services contribute greatly to society. There is no doubt that numbers are important to keeping order in life. The reality, however, is that most accountants have become nothing more than scorekeepers. Simply put, "things" had to be done differently.
In an economic environment where 90% of new businesses shut their doors within 5 years, the partners knew there was much more they could to help their clients and themselves.
