The Momentum Vision

To provide reliable and responsive accounting, tax, finance and administrative services to individuals and small and/or new businesses so that they can focus on the growth of their business or personal pursuits.

The Momentum Story

In the Fall of 2013, Derek Slemko, founder and sole practitioner of Momentum Accounting Professional Corporation Chartered Accountant, felt that his experience with smaller, growing companies would be beneficial in helping businesses with small or non-existent finance groups meet their reporting obligations to tax and regulatory authorities, lenders, shareholders and all other stakeholders.  Derek has worked in environments where, because of a limited number of staff, internal controls are a challenge and has found solutions.  He has many years of experience in growing, acquisitive, complex organizations to draw on to help your business maintain its momentum.
