• Steve Farnham, CPA, CA, CFP, Managing Partner
Cambridge Materials Testing has used Farnham and Company’s accounting services for more than 30 years. During that time CMTL has, like other businesses, experienced ups and downs associated with the ever changing economy. Farnham’s insightful advice regarding banks & financing, tax planning, and succession planning have been integral to CMTL’s success. CMTL briefly used a large national accounting firm only to find that they were only concerned with maximizing their profits rather than helping their clients. CMTL would highly recommend Steve Farnham and his staff to anyone requiring outside accounting services.
My experience with Farnham and Co. goes back over 60 years, when Steve’s father Ross was the accountant for my parent’s manufacturing business. My father always said that a big part of their success was due to the sound financial advice they received from Farnham, which continues to this day.
When my husband and I started our own business, it was natural for us to turn to Farnham and Company. I’ll never forget our first meeting with Steve Farnham when he said, “My job is to save you money.” He has been true to his word and in turn helped our business to grow and be profitable with his practical advice. Now as we transition our agritourism business to the next generation we have every confidence that Farnham +Company’s professional and knowledgeable team will help them to continue our business’s development and financial success.
The Farnham team brings a depth of experience and they truly listen and understand my specific tax-related and cash flow issues, enabling them to provide me with tailored and bespoke tax solutions. In addition, the team is always available to discuss structuring considerations, including for real estate and Family Trust matters, enabling me to set up financial structures early in the investment process. We have dealt with 4 or 5 accounting companies over the last 34 years, and Farnham is without a doubt the best; they always put our minds at ease. With everyone dealing with Covid 19 in the last 8 months, Farnham took it on themselves to send out information bulletins explaining the various government programs available, who could apply, and under what circumstances. Both myself and our accounts manager have found them to be very helpful.
I was recommended to Farnham over 15 years ago from a highly respected business associate in Toronto. Since then, Farnham has become my trusted first call for all my personal and corporate tax matters. The Farnham team is always available for me and has met every project deadline regardless of the timeline. The team including, Stephen, Anastasia & Sylvia are extremely knowledgeable, detail-oriented and always provide a very common-sense approach to problem-solving. It is without hesitation that I wholeheartedly attest to Farnham’s enthusiasm and experience in the accounting practice space and would recommend Farnham to oversee any tax or advisory project.
Farnham is a professional firm that has exceeded our expectations in providing advice during transitional years. We have experienced the professional way the Farnham team conducts their audits and reviews. Their willingness to spend time answering specific questions and concerns has set them apart from other accounting firms. I have no hesitation in recommending Farnham’s team. There are very capable team that maintain confidentiality and transparency.
I and my family have been customers of Farnham for over 20 years. In all these years, I never encountered any surprises (a good thing when dealing with taxes) and have received top quality, consistent, and friendly services from the whole team. While dealing with taxes tends to be as pleasant as going to the dentist, they are both highly necessary and getting it done well and correctly is key.
Farnham has been an important part of the growth and success of our company. We rely on the guidance and expertise to provide us with information so we can make the proper decisions to succeed. The diversity of knowledge is phenomenal which makes Farnham our “go to” for everything. They are the first person we call with any question we have, even non-accounting related ones because of the trustworthiness in suggestions, opinions, and conversations.
Having worked as an investment banker in New York and Toronto for 30 years, I have worked with many accounting, tax and financial service advisors. I consider Farnham to be amongst the best and they are the only choice for my personal tax matters. The Farnham team brings a depth of experience and they truly listen and understand my specific tax-related and cash flow issues, enabling them to provide me with tailored and bespoke tax solutions.
