adopts a robot

Major shifts in technology have hit almost every area of modern life. Somewhere, someone is trying to disrupt your business/industry/life; perhaps even more than one! This concept of constant disruption also goes hand-in-hand with the saying “there’s an app for that”, which can either save time or waste it (good or bad, depending on your objective).

The disruptive forces of technology are also setting their hooks on accounting and taxes, long stalwarts of “same as last time” and “those who fear change.” has been on the Xero (for those who don’t know about Xero click HERE)  bandwagon for over 5 years and just that one element of change has broadened our ability to serve our dramatically. Having a cloud based accounting platform is just one way that brings the accounting function closer to real time instead of a study of business history. Therefore, we can say we welcomed that disruption with open arms.

As the accounting function becomes more IRL real-time, there are time savings based on streamlined processes and the availability of more information. A bookkeeper would always work on a time delay, needing bank statements, receipts, and a large amount of other [paper] source documents to be able to close out a standard month’s worth of financial activity. There are apps that reduce the entire bookkeeping function (Expensify, AutoEntry) from [human] weeks to a robot software platform minutes or hours. By cost comparison, a bookkeeper and subscriptions to the latest automation software run about the same cost per month, but the killer robots software work on nights, weekends, and does not wear plaid! has adopted many of these automation programs into our processes, which allows us to turn the numbers around much quicker and provide actionable insight into your business.

With all this newfound time on our hands and since the robots are working for us (at least for now), GP CPA spends some of that time reviewing and testing new apps. Before we recommend any program/app/software to our client, we spend a considerable time testing and often times breaking the latest and greatest software. Once we have identified the quirks and moved past the integration hurdles, we start recommending the battle-tested apps to our . The most common side effect of our recommendations is longer, more frequent vacations for our . If you are wondering how to do more with less or want to see how a modern accountant advisor can move your business into the future, GP CPA is the way. Killer Robots included.

This firm is absolutely the best that I've dealt with when it comes to CPAs and financial advice. I'd gone to another CPA in the area for help with my small business during time, they stopped communicating and I was left with important documentation not filed and a lot of anxiety around what to do. My appointment with Justin was set up quickly and I was in within a couple days to sit down with him. When you first meet him, you get the impression that he's incredibly intelligent and knows what he's talking about. He took the time to guide me through each and every step that I needed to take to move forward and actually ended up saving me money. I am so grateful to him for his knowledge and professionalism. Total life saver! If you're a small business owner, you should not be taking your time, money or business anywhere else but GP CPA and their crew 🙂read more

Unfortunately, I found GMP when my mother passed. She had a trust set up and I had no experience with one. I received excellent advice prior to filing taxes, that allow for the transfer of assets with little tax implication. The tax process was simple for me, Justin took over once he had details and cleared up all question from filing our taxes. Thank you for a job well done!read more

My partner and I started our very first small business last year. Justin has been a blessing to us. Being new at all of this, we didn’t understand much of how business taxes work. Justin explained and answer all of questions that we have. He took care of everything for us throughout the year and have made life so much easier for us. I couldn’t have asked for a better CPA. Highly recommended!read more
