Accounting Firm Reviews and Testimonials
“I’ve been working through the final stages of a divorce, and as you can imagine it hasn’t been the easiest of times. Coupled with a downturn in the economy I’ve been forced to make many changes and its been hard to qualify to get my Ex-wife off the mortgage title and keep my home. Like many people today, I’ve been struggling with deadlines and financial turmoil. One of the most important steps was to get both my personal and corporate year ends complete for 2014 and 2015. This would allow me to finish the remortgaging process and keep my home. Its been even harder to accomplish this as I serve in the navy and spend a large portion of my year away from home and out of contact. At first, I tried an accountant from Leduc, and though I was at first impressed by their willingness to help, I was soon dissapointed in the excessive cost for just the first year of taxes completed, and the month it took them to complete it. I couldnt hope to afford both years through them, nor could I waste the time it would take. I had deadlines to meet; I was feeling very dark and worried that I would soon be homeless. I spoke to my Broker who recommended that I speak to Corey Hill at Chill Group. With nothing left to lose, I figured why not. After explaining my situation and deadline, Corey and his team were immediately supportive. Even working on my file throughout their holiday season. There was a lot of work to do, and within just a few short weeks(because there were times I couldnt answer emails promptly) my taxes were completed and filed. At this moment I still don’t know if it will be enough to save my home, but I do know that the folks at Chill Group gave me hope in a very dark hour. They pulled out all the stops and did everything they could to help. I just don’t have the right words for how grateful I feel, nor how much it means to me. Everything from start to finish, their understanding and support for my unique situation, their outstanding customer service and reasonable rates were just perfect. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an honest and friendly accounting firm. Truly the best! Thank You Chill Group.”

“During an initial consultation with Corey, he demonstrated clearly his earnest desire to keep the best interests of the client first. He met with me to discuss our financial reporting processes and he was able to evaluate quickly our reporting habits and give me valuable feedback and put my mind at ease. Corey’s honesty and direct approach were much appreciated. By the end of the meeting, I realized that I am on the right track. Should I need help in the future I would definitely want to work with Corey again.”

“Corey Hill and the team at Chill Group were phenomenal to work with. We run a small horse training and riding business and had been doing our own taxes which was fine until we started to grow. We became completely overwhelmed and consequently late with our tax filing, which is both stressful and embarrassing. We had approached an accounting firm with our files and we felt like they were abrupt and wanted us in and out as quick as possible. We had only had one visit but in that time they were reluctant to talk and answer our questions or address our concerns. We wanted to be involved and educated in the process but they made us feel like this wasn’t our place. The one visit, with no further action or patronage cost us $200. This was when I heard the Chill Group ad on the radio. After one visit to their new office WE KNEW it was a match. The team is friendly and patient and willing to assist and educate you about your situation the whole time. They have an awesome kid-friendly area so visits are so non-stressful and NOT ONCE did I feel foolish or ignorant. Corey was completely reasonable with everything and we are SO thankful for all of his generous assistance and guidance. If you are looking for a FRESH, NEW accounting/bookkeeping/ small business experience, Corey and his team are the way to go.”

“I had just completed my first year of business ownership and was looking to find a skilled accountant whom I could trust to help me complete my corporate taxes. Being a rookie, I wasn’t sure what to expect or what kind of experience that I would be in for. I had heard about the Chill Group and the great services they provided and thought that they would be a great fit for me. I was not disappointed. Corey and his entire team were very welcoming and made me feel relaxed and at ease. Corey gave me a personal tour of his office, offered me a cool beverage and snack, and allowed me to soak in the ambience of his newly created inspiration room (which by the way, was amazing!).
Unlike other accountants, Corey was very outgoing, laid back, and excited to share with me the importance of my business and how he could save me time and money. As I sat there listening to Corey, I found myself engaged in learning about accounting and wanting to improve my business so that is was more efficient and profitable. What I thought was going to be a routine assessment turned out to be a valuable session that was educational and uplifting. I was particularly impressed of how Corey could take difficult concepts and explain them in such a way that was easy for me to learn and understand. I would highly recommend Corey to anyone looking for excellent accounting services and sound business advice. Corey’s years of training and experience as a professional accountant combined with his outstanding client service is what makes him unique. Thank you Corey for allowing me to be a part of the Chill experience!”

“We have been in business for 12 years and have used a couple of “accountants” in that time but always with the concern in the back of our minds that they weren’t quite doing the job. Corey Hill was recommended to us through a business acquaintance and we are very happy that we went with our instinct to change to Chill Group. We have had our current tax return completed, along with a couple of previous years redone, and we know that it has been done correctly. Corey takes the time to sit with us to review our business financials and we have learned a lot from him. If we have any questions he gets back to us quickly and if he doesn’t know the answer right away; he will find it. He is very energetic, enthusiastic, professional and extremely knowledgeable. We would highly recommend Chill Group for any business.”
– Gerry and Sheri Simmonds, Owners, Shur Mechanical Ltd.
“Corey helped us overcome a mountain of stress from a previous book keeper/accountant. We were overwhelmed and he was very kind, helpful and reassuring. Very professional and thorough, he took the time to sit down with us and not rush but explain everything on anything we misunderstood and gave us a great crash course on business sense! We cannot say enough about how amazing he has been for us!”
– Travis & Melissa Tranfield, Owners, Tranfield Earthworks Ltd.
“I would like to thank Chill Group for their professional approach to my accounting issues. I had experienced several years of bad accounting and poor direction for my business. After 1 visit Chill Group took over my accounting and did a great job on my behalf dealing with the CRA and explaining some things I was not aware of. This gives me a very confident feeling and I feel relieved now when I think back about my past experiences with accountants. The professional and expedient manner in which my accounting was completed is second to none and I will recommend Chill Group to any and all business owners who approach me for advice on this selection.”
– Bill Campbell, VP, GP Services Inc
“Corey and the Chill Group have been nothing short of saviors for myself and my company. After 2 years of some very messy accounting, the Chill group took over and completely cleaned house. I had no idea, until I met Corey, how bad things were and I am so thankful that The Chill Group came into my life when they did. The advice that Corey has given me has saved my company thousands. He has worked closely with me to provide my business an incredible service as well as tailor a payment plan for me to get back out of a deep hole. I am forever grateful for The Chill Group. I will continue to be a raving fan and tell as many as I can about this incredible firm.”
