Set your accounting firm up for success with CFIB

The challenges facing accounting practices like yours are endless. You must keep up with CRA rule changes; find and retain qualified staff; select tech tools that help you stay competitive; and, of course, give clients a high level of service. 

The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) stands by you when you face these challenges. We represent your fellow accountants from coast to coast and we can make it easier for you to run your business successfully in three ways:

Save time

You get access to our library of business templates that will make it easy for you to create key documents, such as employee contracts and handbooks. We also provide practical business information, such as reference articles and webinars on the topics that matter to you.

Save money

As a CFIB member, you can access exclusive discounts on essential services. Save big on payroll, telecommunications, business banking, and more.

Make yourself heard

Have your voice amplified by our fierce advocates! We meet with politicians and decision-makers at all levels of government, every day, to fight for the issues that matter to you from lowering the small business tax rate to reducing your red tape.

Join the more than 95,000 Canadian small businesses that are set up for success. As a CFIB member, you can contact a business counsellor for answers to your questions about working with the CRA and other everyday issues. You can also take advantage of CFIB’s exclusive low rates on key business services.Focus on running your accounting practice while CFIB takes care of the rest. 

Onboard new employees faster

Our FREE employee handbook template makes it easy for you to equip new team members with the information they need to succeed—even if you don’t have a dedicated HR person who can work with them one on one.

Save 40% on payroll

Payworks automates your labour-intensive HR tasks so that you can reclaim hours each week while ensuring that every employee gets paid on time, every time. Plus, CFIB members save 40%.

Never miss an opportunity

As a CFIB member, you will get 30% off all the tools you need to manage client inquiries. And if you act now you will get additional business phone features for FREE. CFIB members save an average of $1,000 per year when they switch to SelectCom.

We are pleased with the help received from the business counsellors. They have helped us in many ways and on a variety of topics from managing a difficult employee, knowing my right and obligation as an employer, or answer my payroll and employment insurance questions. The team of counsellors is always available and their quick responses are greatly appreciated.

I would just like to thank the CFIB for advocating for small business. Last year our company saved $1,225 in payroll fees by switching our payroll to your recommended savings partner Payworks. Thanks for looking out for the "little guy."
