They needed an accounting solution that would keep up with their rapid growth.
ICS Creative Agency was a small startup founded by two friends. They shared responsibilities for running the whole show; everything from business development to delivery of the final product followed up by billing and administration. Things were relatively simple back then.
Steep Growth Curve
As planned by the founders, the business doubled in size each year over a several year period. Winning the Fastest Growing Company for 2014 by Progress Magazine, this rapid growth created challenges for the founders. Payroll, HST, performance management, financial reporting, cash flow management, and conducting business in multiple jurisdictions are just a few examples of areas where the founders required professional guidance.
Growing a business involves a considerable investment of time and cash. While the company was realizing success, it had a limited budget for finance and administration. The business needed more than a bookkeeper but could not put a full time accountant on staff. Instead, they partnered with an accounting firm who could deliver a full outsourced solution. Turnbull and Kindred provided ICS with a team of resources to provide everything from processing payroll to filing HST returns to supporting financial decisions to support the strategic business plans.
Freedom to do What You Love
Entering this partnership with Turnbull and Kindred has allowed the founders of ICS Creative Agency to focus on doing what they love! Instead of having to keep up with all of the red tape imposed by our multiple levels of government, the founders are out meeting new clients, winning new business, and taking their business to new heights!
There is something refreshing about working with Turnbull and Kindred. In our business we are often told from clients how they have issues with their accounting management. Luckily for us we have no way to relate to this feeling since we have only had positive interactions with Turnbull and Kindred. Their fast response times and energetic attitudes are exactly what we wanted from an accounting team.
Having Jamie as our Virtual CFO is a fantastic addition as he is truly invested in our business and treats it like his own. I reguarly refer people to Turnbull and Kindred and will do so for years to come.
