What our Clients Say about Us
Sonoma Contracting – General Contractor
The help and advice that I receive from FBZ Accounting Solutions has been invaluable. Faye and her team provide timely, considered and professional advice that allows me to make the right decisions for my business. They make government financial information understandable which makes what was hard, really easy. They always have my back, know my industry. I never hesitate to recommend them.

MSB MECHANCIAL & MSB HVAC SERVICES
“Our company has been using FBZ Accounting Solutions since we opened our business, a mechanical contracting company, in February 2010. We hired FBZ Accounting originally to help set up our new company in QuickBooks. The services we received at that time (and still!) were beyond our expectations and we have used FBZ ever since.
I honestly cannot say enough good things about FBZ and the quality of work that has always been given. The staff is friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable. The owner, Faye Zevenbergen, is a pleasure to deal with and beyond smart when it comes to Accounting, Numbers and Program Software (QuickBooks)!
There are times when I feel that something has gone wrong with my books and I need a second look, an answer or advice, I just call FBZ Accounting Solutions and always get a quick response and resolution.
I’ve noticed over the years as we have expanded that FBZ is always up to date with the newest technology and strategic information to help our business grow too. A lot of work is done in such an easy manner via logging onto our computers remotely so we can have immediate responses.
Some of the services provided to us include: setting up of two new business customized in QuickBooks, entries and reconciliations of bank and multiple visa accounts, Government Inquiries, HST, Payroll Source Deductions, WSIB and Union remittances, GL management to assist with the tracking holdbacks, tracking for union dues, customized templates for monthly draws (which are quite detailed), Vehicle Purchasing and disposal, T4 and Year End tax review and preparation. FBZ Accounting Solutions also works closely with our Chartered Accountant in regards to our year end and future planning.
Our business would not run as smoothly without the assistance of FBZ Accounting Solutions and for anyone looking to hire an Accounting/Bookkeeping service I can 110% say there is no one else I would ever recommend.”

In running two busy retail and service locations I rely on FBZ Accounting to provide me with sound business advice, accurate financials/government remittances, payroll services and act as liaison between myself and our Chartered Accountant. If there is a problem or discrepancy FBZ will work tirelessly on resolving the issue. FBZ has located and rectified POS(point-of-sale) deficiencies in order to ensure that we have accuracy in our financial statements. I know I can call the team at FBZ, anytime and they will provide me with answers and feedback concerning my business! FBZ Accounting Solutions always has my back!
FBZ Accounting Solutions has become and essential component to the growth and management of my business. My time and energy can be focused on growing and developing my business while I find comfort in knowing that my numbers are reliably tracked so that I can analyze my business accurately.
I would recommend Faye and her staff to anyone who is focused on understanding what is happening in their business without having to have a large time commitment.

MULTI-MENU PET FOODS
I wanted to take the time to say thank You to Faye and her team at FBZ Accounting Solutions in Barrie. When I started my business in Simcoe County, I wanted to ensure that I had all my numbers in order. I was committed to preventing the mistakes made in my previous business from repeating.
As a small business owner it is so easy for us to lose track of our finances and whether or not we are growing, meeting goals, getting paid and paying… thriving! We are often as small business owners wearing so many different hats that we are often not as disciplined as we should be in ensuring that we are getting all the necessary work done on our books on a regular basis. FBZ is a gentle, yet persuasive accountability partner every day.
When I first started dealing with Faye and her team I thought that I would learn a few things, but… “She would take care of the rest!” Well I was only partially right.
Faye and her team took very good care of me and in fact I actually learned what all my numbers meant. I can honestly say that I now spend a very little time every month looking at my numbers and stressing over them; because I understand what they mean and how to use them. I know that the detailed reports that I get at the end of every month from Faye and her team at FBZ are transparent, accurate and understandable which empowers me to ensure that I stay on track with the goals that I set out for myself both long and short term.
I wouldn’t dare trust my business with any other bookkeepping firm in Barrie.
Thank You FBZ! Your expertise is immeasurable.

Faye does the bookkeeping for our law firm and has for just under three years. She is a positive, enthusiastic, team player who really knows all the “ins” and “outs” of bookkeeping. If she is uncertain, she finds the answer. She is completely trustworthy and keeps the best interests of her clients foremost. Faye attacks challenges with enthusiasm and follows through until the challenge is overcome. She works well with other staff and has trained them to performing a supportive role. I am happy to have her as part of our team.
