About B R Accounting Service

B R Accounting Service is a locally owned and operated business offering a wide range of accounting services.

Bren Raiska was born in Winnipeg and moved to Victoria with her family when she was 11, and has been operating B R Accounting Service since 2006.

Bren ran a daycare for 17 years. This allowed her to stay home with her three children. Her business was so successful, that after her children were in school, she continued until her youngest child started high school. At that time, Bren decided a career change was in order. After doing the accounting for her own business, and that of her self-employed husband's house design business, Alternate Plans, she decided to further her education, and obtained an Accounting Certificate from Fanshawe College's Distance Education.

In the beginning of 2015 Bren and her husband sold their family home in Victoria and relocated to the Comox Valley.

Bren has been a Certified Professional Bookkeeper with the Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada since 2009. Bren is also a Sage 50 Premier Advisor and a Quickbooks Certified Advisor.

Bren's clients have included: retail, CSIL, restaurants, pubs, electrical, construction, landscaping, plumbing, personal services, courier, not for profit, real estate, and other small businesses, as well as a variety of individual clients.
