EDUCATION

Our CPA’s have written the accounting section for the upcoming Alberta Real Estate Association Property Management course.

We realize understanding financial statements can be challenging. Unless you work in accounting or have extensive business experience odds are you may require help understanding the numbers. We take a step-by-step approach to them building up the board’s financial literacy by offering training in:

  • Operating Funds
  • Reserve Funds
  • Budgets
  • Operating Statement
  • Balance Sheet

Professionalism

Our dedicated CPA will advise and review your monthly condo statements with Board Treasurer or President. Many bookkeepers will only email you the financial statement package and not provide any analysis or explanation, leaving you in the dark. Our CPA’s enjoy interacting with the Boards and take pride in building long-term relationships.

We realize that you are busy so we provide three communication channels for you to choose from:

  1. Email
  2. Phone
  3. Zoom

COMPLIANCE

Condominium accounting is a specialized field that is governed by the Condominium Act in Alberta. Most bookkeepers and non industry accountants are not aware of the requirements. Even some property management companies may neglect keeping up to date on the latest requirements. At AMG, each month’s financial statements are reviewed by an experienced property management CPA to ensure accuracy and compliance with provincial requirements.
