    Who we are
    You know those big cities that still feel like small towns? Where everyone’s friendly and helps each other out? That’s like Grant Thornton. Except here we’re all professionals and there isn’t a mayor or a general store. What we’re trying to say is that we’re a very different kind of professional services firm where culture is at the heart of who we are and what we do.  We employ about 2500 people across Canada, and we truly care about helping our clients, colleagues, and communities thrive.  That’s what’s most important to us. We’re building a special organization that’s purpose driven and as we grow we always want to remember what your favourite milkshake flavour is.

    As a Technician/Bookkeeper, your responsibilities include:

    • Performing full-cycle bookkeeping and payroll functions to assist clients in the accurate preparation of monthly/quarterly or annual internal financial statements
    • Performing reconciliations of all balance sheet accounts including: bank accounts, credit cards, lines of credit, loans, accounts payable, accounts receivable, capital assets and depreciation
    • Calculate payroll cheques including CRA remittances and preparation of, ROE’s, T4’s & WCB reports
    • Assisting a broad range of privately held business clients with day to day accounting queries
    • Calculation and submission of sales and commodity taxes (“GST/HST”)
    • Ensuring all client deadlines are met with regards to payroll source deductions, GST/HST, WCB, EHT and any other government filings that may be applicable
    • Receiving and organizing client documentation including statements, receipts and records entries
    • Checking figures, postings, and documents for correct entry, mathematical accuracy, and proper general ledger codes
    • Complying with all federal, provincial, tax regulations along with company policies and procedures

    Be Grant Thornton
    If you’re a bit like us, you’re driven to connect with how others are feeling and thinking. Here we walk in others shoes before taking action. Just imagine being part of a team that puts “we before me”, where flexAbility is a mindset, and where you trust your colleagues to have your back. At Grant Thornton, you’ll work with inspiring leaders who support your development, both personally and professionally. This is a place where your insatiable curiosity enables you to think, see and hear from a variety of perspectives, a place where every day is different and having the courage to grow is part of who you are. And when all this comes together, well that’s when the magic happens!
