What Our Clients are Saying About Us?

"Four years ago Coastal Sound Music Academy found themselves looking for a new accounting firm to perform an annual review engagement. There were the usual issues to consider when deciding on an accounting firm; experience with non-profit accounting and reporting requirements, price, the willingness to assist with various federal and provincial filings if necessary and provide advice on financial issues that might arise from time to time. Nafees Chaudhry and his firm CNC Chartered Professional Accountant certainly met these criteria but in addition, Nafees was genuinely interested in our organization. He took the time to understand what our organization did, what our goals were, what we did on a daily basis to accomplish those goals and what we were expecting to accomplish in the future. When an accounting firm can provide all the necessary professional expertise, an excellent price structure and a genuine interest in our organization, the decision was easy to make. Thank you Nafees."
