"Clients come to us for overall planning. We get to know our clients as individuals and learn what is important to them and their families. It’s not always about business; the services we offer, like estate planning and tax deferral, integrate into a client’s personal life.”
Dan Dickinson joined Wilkinson on his graduation from Queens University in 1984 and received his CA two years later. He completed his CICA In-depth Tax Program in 1991 and became a partner in the firm in 1993. Dan specializes in taxation and derives a great amount of personal pleasure and satisfaction in helping clients save money. He advises clients on all aspects of business, be it buying or selling, client shareholder remuneration issues, incorporating or succession planning.
Dan proudly serves his community. He is the past president of the Belleville Rotary Club and has worked as the treasurer of the Kids Golf Tournament since 2003, helping raise over $1,100,000 for children in need.
Having articled with Wilkinson, Dan sees the firm as a great place for new graduates to get the training and experience they need to become top class accountants.
“A national firm may seem dazzling, but you often don’t get real experience. We are a small enough firm that we care – our new recruits don’t fly under the radar here; they are always in contact with a partner and receive an amazing education. Our training can easily compete with any national firm in terms of our results – but the actual experience a training accountant receives at Wilkinson is hard to match.”
