What our clients say…
TRINITY POWER RENTALS — Todd Johnston, General Manager
“We contracted A-R Partners for their Outsourced CFO services. They have been a life saver and have become a large part of our leadership team. They have become more than an accounting firm to us, but true partners in business. They went the extra mile to learn about our organization and our industry. They have come to thoroughly understand our business and work very closely with our senior management, sales and accounting team to provide reporting, advice and mentoring. In all intents and purposes, they are like a member of our board.
A-R Partners assisted us in establishing financial systems, reporting, measurement, and analysis to manage our growth. They helped make our ERP development easy, seamless, and painless. They help us with personal, as well as corporate tax planning, maximizing our returns. They facilitate our financing and acquisitions. And they continue to work closely with us weekly, if not daily, in our strategic planning, sales forecasting, and business development initiatives. Their services enable us to make accurate, real-time, informed decisions. They have been an essential key to our success.
Because of their leadership and high level skill set, A-R Partners has enabled us to add more branches and double our revenue over the last 3 years. They have been huge contributor to our success. I don’t think we’d be where we are today with out them. A-R Partners is phenomenal! ”
PML – PROFESSIONAL MECHANICAL LTD — Don Wightman, Owner
“I’ve been working with Garnet at A-R Partners for 20 years. Garnet and his team has helped my company grow from one tradesman earning $640,000 in revenue in 1995 to an $85 million company with 300 employees and multiple branches.
The team at A-R Partners has been essential in helping us set up our financial systems and deal with our annual financial statements, tax reporting and annual audit. In addition, A-R Partners helps our accounting team work through internal reporting, budgeting, forecasting and reporting to the banks and bonding companies. They assist us with our external financing and credit facilities, and with the analysis of potential acquisitions, business ventures and other opportunities. They also help us with corporate and individual tax planning, taking into consideration the multiple companies in our corporate structure.
I particularly enjoy working with Garnet. His focus, calm demeanor, and patient sense of humour when I go to him for advice give me the confidence I need to make both day-to-day and long-term strategic decisions.”

“We have worked with Curtis Wong of A-R Partners from when we first started Meat & Bread in 2010 until now.

I would highly recommend Curtis to any business or individual for his dedication and professionalism. A-R Partners’ contribution to the growth of our business has been invaluable.
