List of Technology Companies That Can Benefit From Accounting Services

SaaS companies

SaaS is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world, and we’re here to help your company grow just as quickly – if not faster. We can help you determine how much to charge per subscription, give you easy access to important financial statements, help you record your expenses for tax rebates, and so much more. 

Managed IT service providers

Managed IT is a complicated business. You’ll wear a lot of different hats for different clients, from helping them build their IT infrastructure to securing their network. Determining how much you should charge clients for each service can be tricky, especially given how different the expenses can be for each client.


Our bookkeeping and accounting services can help. You’ll be able to track how much revenue each client is bringing in, all while monitoring expenses, allowing you to improve your cash flow. 

Video game developers

As a video game dev, you know that your runway is the most important thing – especially if you’re launching your first game. You have to balance expenses with financing and ensure that you have enough money to continue developing and distributing your game. After launch day, you can finally reap your rewards.


We can help you manage your runway by providing stellar bookkeeping and accounting services. Keep your expenses under control and create the game of your dreams with Compass Accounting.


How has technology affected the accounting profession? From the earliest days of Excel to modern-day cloud accounting, technology and accounting have evolved hand-in-hand. Computers are, after all, adding machines, and bookkeeping and accounting deal heavily in numbers. Today, it’s easy to track all of your expenses and print valuable financial reports, leaving your accountant with more time to help you strategize. 


Why do digital and tech companies need a specialist accountant? Many tech companies deal in subscription services, difficult-to-track expenses like R&D, and other non-standard revenue and expense streams. There are also an incredible number of tax breaks, grants, and incentives available to tech companies in Canada. Specialist technology accounting services provided by Compass Accounting can help you navigate these often murky financial waters.
