I’m Louise Rose, the proud owner of Rose Tax & Accounting Service.

I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.

While taking accounting courses, I discovered that I enjoyed the challenge of analyzing each client’s tax situation to bring them the best possible outcome. It inspired my husband and me to start a home-based accounting business in 1994.

We began by crunching numbers at our clients’ dining room tables, which gave us an opportunity to build rapport and get to know their families on a personal level.

However, by the time we reached the twenty-fifth-year mark, we had far outgrown the “home” and decided to move to a commercial space. Today, we still foster close relationships with clients at our busy office at 420 Leacock Drive.

We realize that taxes are not everyone’s cup of tea, and accountants are up there with dentists as the least favorite places to visit. Therefore, we strive to put people at ease while solving their accounting issues so that they leave our office with a big smile on their faces.

We are also known for our integrity, and I believe what sets us apart is our honesty which builds trust with clients. We will never compromise our position as professional accountants. For example, if someone went into a store and pocketed an item (not claiming correct income), that is theft. Or price tags are switched to avoid paying the full price (incorrect marital status), it’s considered fraud. Asking us to report either is putting our business in jeopardy, and we won’t do that.

On the other hand, suppose a client has a legitimate coupon for a freebie or discount, then that’s totally legit. Our job is to find all the coupons possible for clients to help them save money. Doing this, in addition to other money-saving approaches, has enabled our clients to take control of their finances and provided us with ample success as tax specialists.

I also attribute our success to consistent service excellence, as we take the time to analyze clients’ returns and give advice for future tax savings. Our meticulous approach has led to reward and recognition. When our firm was named as one of Barrie’s best three tax services, it was an immensely proud moment.

I must take this opportunity to thank my team and staff for their continuous efforts to consistently get us over the line. Success has only been possible because of their drive and determination to see us succeed.

When I’m not analyzing financial statements, I love to paint, garden, read, quilt, and take care of my fur babies.

I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.

If you or someone you know could benefit from our accounting, bookkeeping, payroll, and HST packages, I invite you to get in touch. Our newly renovated office in Barrie, Ontario, provides service to clients across the country. Please visit my website at to learn more.
