What Our Clients Are Saying

Just like I expect professionalism, proactiveness and confidentiality from a doctor or a lawyer, an accountant is no different. My expectations with Shailene were not only met but exceeded by a landslide. Her level of knowledge is simply incredible. She is the type of professional that would explain all requirements and specifics of your case in a way you could fully understand in order to make an informed decision. She is really knowledgeable of the most current CRA rules and she always makes sure her clients get the best service possible. If you don’t ever want to have any problems with CRA, I would strongly recommend Shailene’s services.

Shailene Caparas, CPA, CGA, noted authority on Christian stewardship “practices what she preaches”. Her impeccable professional credentials provide a trust basis for all of her services. Knowing her professional history and her ready advice and assistance to charities requiring direction in their challenges with the Canada Revenue Agency, I heartily recommend her services.

We came to know Sis. Shailene through the recommendation of a friend of a board member. It was during the time the church was saddled with anxiety on how to comply with CRA requirements given the challenging church predicament at that time. With her reassuring confidence, expertise and spiritual fortitude, we successfully comply with CRA requirements within the deadline. Thanks to Sis. Shailene who helped us through such a trying moment for the church. Shailene also encouraged and strengthened our resolve to continue as a church serving the Lord through its members.

With Shailene’s selfless dedication and excellent knowledge on finance, ministry experience and love for the church, Shailene is certainly a very helpful partner of the church in fulfilling its mission to edify the saints and at the same time, maintain the church’s positive testimony to the community by complying with the government’s lawful requirements. We give glory to God for her ministry as a CPA for churches!

Having a knowledgeable CPA is very important and I am glad that we found that in Shailene. This year, my wife became very concerned and worried when she received a Notice of Reassessment asking her to pay a significant amount of taxes. It left us confused and worried. After we informed Shailene, she immediately told us that she would get in touch with CRA and sort it all out for us. She helped us prepare a response and we ended up paying zero. She also amended our previous year’s tax return. This enabled us to maximize our tax benefits. Without the help and expertise of Shailene, my wife and I would not have known what to do. That's why having a knowledgeable CPA gives you confidence and peace of mind. We are thankful we have her as our accountant.

Shailene was referred to us by a member of our non-profit organization at a time when we needed someone to prepare our financial statements immediately for a grant application. We very much appreciate her willingness to help on short notice, working with the financial information that we had available and providing the financial statements in time for the application deadline. She also took the time to connect with the funder on our behalf to ensure that the financial reports will satisfy the requirements for the grant application, and we were able to secure the financial support that we needed to operate during this pandemic. I highly recommend Ms. Caparas for her professionalism and quality of service, and we look forward to working with her again in the future!

In our dealings with Shailene, I received the highest professional service. She is honest and sincere. Whenever you ask for help, she gives her timely, reliable and trustworthy service. Knowledge-sharing occurs naturally for her. Moreover, she is a Christian and a pastor at SeedCare International Ministries, an international compassionate service organization. I give my two thumbs up and I highly recommend her accounting firm!
