The culture at KWB seeps into everything we do.
At KWB we want to be the accounting firm of choice in Edmonton serving the small and medium enterprise market because our clients become more prosperous working with us.
As your business adviser, we use technology to simplify your accounting experience, save you time and help you grow your business.
We believe that clear communication is key to working efficiently and building strong relationships. We are always honest with you and talk about your finances in simple terms. We want you to understand what we’re doing and how we’re helping you so that we can operate together as a team.
We enjoy meeting with you, so being personable comes naturally to us. We want you, our staff, and other service partners, to feel welcome.
We hold ourselves accountable for our commitments and for the services we deliver, in order to establish and maintain trust. When we can not meet certain commitments, we communicate our difficulties and establish a revised plan, with as much advance notice as possible.

Our knowledge of accounting and tax is the foundation for everything we do. We don’t believe that becoming knowledgeable is a one-time thing – we see learning as an ongoing process. This mindset keeps us at the top of our industry and allows us to provide you with the best possible service, part of which is passing our knowledge on to you.
We encourage a supportive, team-based environment at KWB. We actively share our knowledge and our time with others, coordinate our activities, and give of ourselves for the better of the common good.
Continuous innovation allows us to deliver the most appropriate suite of services to you in a manner that is beneficial to all. We choose to foster innovation by showing a positive attitude towards all new ideas, actively soliciting such ideas, and rewarding both individual and group successes.
