Our Story

Established in 2011, Akeroyd Leung Amlani Chartered Professional Accountants grew out of our shared belief of a different way to provide accounting services to our community’s small to medium size businesses. A better way.

Working one-on-one with our clients, we provide a full life cycle service for your business, from incorporation to succession planning. While our team has a wide variety of collective experience spanning many industries, we understand that your business is more than that. You have goals. We have solutions.

Working With Us

Our clients come first in everything that we do. When you engage us as your financial partners, we become a part of your business, providing more than just taxation and accounting advice. We’re always thinking one step ahead, anticipating your needs and strategizing your next big business move. Some people might say we go beyond expectations. But that’s what partners do.
