Opportunity

Fed up with the 70 hour work weeks during busy season? This will be a great role for someone that wants to transition out of the long hours of public practice. We offer lots of flexibility (including working from home) and a benefits plan, so it's a terrific role for someone who wants work/life balance and want to apply the unique skills they have obtained to learn US GAAP and IFRS.

ACM is a boutique advisory practice based out of downtown Vancouver specializing in financial reporting for public companies. We offer public company clients a complete service package to assist them in timely and accurate disclosures. Our clients are from all industry sectors and are issuers on the TSX-V, CSE, NASDAQ, and OTC.

The owner will provide flexibility, respect, and will empower you to make decisions. We are looking to grow and become the go-to accounting and CFO outsourcing service provider in Canada, so small to mid size cap companies can focus on executing their business plans.

You will work directly with the clients to assist them in meeting their financial reporting requirements, which may include assisting with closing procedures, accounting systems planning, IFRS or US GAAP standards accounting policy research, MD&A preparation, and financial statement preparation. Being a part of the client side is a rewarding experience all while getting to maintain the dynamic nature of working on different client files.

You will feel a ton of ownership over the files you work on. Due to the small nature of the firm, we all support each other to solve complex accounting issues. Filing deadlines are a regular occurrence, so being proactive will be a must in order to be successful in our environment. Overtime is only on the rare occasion.

Your primary responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Preparing financial statements and the management discussion and analysis for quarterly and year end filings for various clients;
  • Completing consolidation and translation files;

  • We are flexible on the type of experience you may bring. One of the following experiences is a requirement, unless you can clearly demonstrate strong knowledge in the area of financial reporting: contract CFO to a public reporting entity, led audit files in pubco group at a public accounting firm, or financial reporting role within a public issuer.
  • US GAAP and SEC filing experience
