We provide services primarily to Ontario businesses, as our expertise and knowledge are based on the laws, taxes, and regulations as they relate to Ontario, though we support businesses across Canada and in the US. We provide onsite services as well as remote services. See our local service area for onsite services at the bottom of each page. We also provide business consulting and business coaching services that are not reliant on understanding local legislation to business owners across Canada and the United States remotely online using Zoom.
We only work primarily with existing businesses as we do not offer specific services for those who are just still in the idea phase. The reason for this as there are small business centres in most provinces and states that provide free services or at a reduced rate. You cannot compete with free and our services cost the same to deliver, so we advise you to use as many of the free or discounted services that are available, and when you have exhausted all the help they provide, we are here to help you pick up where they left off.
We provide both management consulting and business coaching. Our management consulting is focused on strategic and planning engagement, which are outlined below. Once engaged with a client for business coaching or consulting and we are familiar with your business, we do provide tactical consulting where needed, or we can refer you to one of our professional affiliations for services we do not offer.

What Our Clients Say
The Second Wedge Brewing Co.
The Second Wedge Brewing Company is located in the heart of Uxbridge, Ontario and focuses on crafting and sharing flavourful, character-full ales. Their name comes from the rolling hills of the Oak Ridges Moraine, which formed in four wedges from west to east. The Second Wedge Brewing company is run by co-founders Rob Garrard and Joanne Richter and is 100% locally owned
When we were ready to take our business plan to the next level, the insight and experience that RK Fischer & Associates contributed was invaluable. Karen examined our work with a fine-toothed comb, identified gaps and coached us on how to pull in the data we needed and present it effectively. Rudy helped us structure our complex brewery financials into a detailed, comprehensive set of linked spreadsheets that were easy for us to read and analyze, but most importantly followed the best-practice accounting principles that institutional lenders require. Karen and Rudy are extremely well connected in the financial and legal spheres and have provided us with many beneficial referrals. And best of all, two separate lenders told us that the fact that we hired RK Fischer & Associates gave them extra confidence in us as entrepreneurs."
