Quality of Earnings
A quality of earnings report is a routine step in the due diligence process for private acquisitions. Net income is not necessarily a 100% accurate indication of financial performance for a business. If a company reports significant net income figures but negative operating cash flow, for example, then it may not be as financially sound as it appears. We devele deeply into these reports to analyze the true financial health of your business or those you are considering acquiring or partnering with.
Proof of Loss Reports
We have a thorough understanding of the highly detailed and scrutinized process of submitting a Proof of Loss report to your insurance companies. It is a process where every detail must be chronicled and submitted in accordance with a predetermined procedure. If any errors occur in this report, the claim could be denied. We assure you with NVS, this will not happen.

SR&ED - (Scientific Research and Experimental Development)
Canada offers some of the most lucrative research and development tax credits in the world, ranging from 15% to 50% of eligible SR&ED costs.
