We’ve chosen to go paperless for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the impact paper production has on our environment. But more than simply an environmental decision, our choice to go paperless is based on the ease and security of digital filing.

By using digital documents secured through advanced encryption, our clients are able to use legally recognized electronic signature services that help eliminate the time-consuming process of printing, signing, mailing and filing single documents. Rather than booking appointments that take clients away from their work, we simply notify them electronically that something needs approval, then process the file as soon as it has been signed. It allows you to do things on your time, so you can stay focused on what you do best.

The Paperwork Solution

Welcome to Metrics and our collaborative Google Drive. We’ll use this system to securely share all confidential information regarding your finances and taxes. Much safer than emailing documents, Google Drive allows for privacy and security, while also being incredibly simple to use. Please let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to working with you.


What does “cloud based” mean?
Cloud-based simply means that instead of keeping your files tucked into a paper folder in a filing cabinet at our office, we store everything in a secure area online. The files are made available to you through encrypted secure access, meaning you never have to wait to access them.
Will I get the chance to talk to someone?
Absolutely. We encourage direct contact, either in person or over face-to-face web meetings. We are available by phone, text or email – and will always respond to any inquiry you have in person.
How long do you keep my files online?
The CRA statute requires all records to be kept for seven years. Your records remain secured in our cloud-based records and are accessible to only you.
How secure is Cloud-Based accounting?
Extremely secure. We use the same security software that major financial institutions and banks use for things like your online banking. In fact, a lot of our security systems exceed the standards within the industry. We double encrypt all the files.
What are electronic signatures?
Electronic signatures are used to sign documents digitally. Rather than taking time out of your workday to book a meeting to sign documents – an act that only takes moments, but often eats up hours – you are able to add your approved signature to your document securely.
Can I get paper copies of my files?
Of course – just hit print!
Who has access to my files?
The only people who will have access to your files are you and the Metrics staff. Upon your request, we create secure sharing for specific files outside the firm to suit your needs.
What services do you offer?
Metrics offers all the same services any paper-based accountancy firm does, the only difference is that we secure everything online rather than in a filing cabinet behind a desk.


Good to know: RRSP vs. TFSA

The RRSP deadline is approaching (Wednesday, March 1) and 2016 brings an additional $5,500 of contribution room for Tax-Free Savings Accounts. You’d probably love to maximize contributions to both investment tools, but most people can’t afford to do that. So what’s the best way to save if you have limited funds? Here’s the skinny: Both […]
