"Seems to me, after taking a peek at Jonathan's website, that testimonials listed do not represent a segment of Jonathan's clientele. All submissions come from small to large business owners, employing from 2 to almost 700 people.

I am a reasonably successful individual, working in a large publishing firm. Jonathan has been doing my taxes and providing sound financial advice for over 10 years.

He gives me the same high level of attention that he gives the large firms he represents. As his business has grown, one would expect to see him devote increasingly more time and energy to larger clients and, by extension, less to people like me, but this isn't what he's all about. A major success measure for Jonathan is the satisfaction level of his clients, regardless of size.

I'd recommend him strongly and without reservation to anyone looking for honest, competent, and timely accounting services. His dedication is unparallelled!"

Executive, international publisher



"I contacted Jonathan about one year ago, based on several recommendations from friends who have used his accounting services both professionally and personally. I interviewed several people, but decided to go with Jonathan. Great decision! My books were a "mess", and Jonathan and his team patiently guided me through the process, and helped me get everything in order. What I value is Jonathan and his team's knowledge in many areas of accounting and business, their quick response to questions, their accessibility, and practical approach. Jonathan will always give you the pros and cons of different options, and help you make the right decision. I would not hesitate to recommend Jonathan Ruben Professional Corporation to anyone who asked."

Owner - manager, retailer, 7 employees



"After starting out with another accountant and experiencing the frustration of a start-up business with a dream not being taken seriously, we met with Jonathan who quickly and astutely spotted several great opportunities for growth within our company. Over 10 years later and with the help of Jonathan's team's tireless passionate effort setting goals, keeping us on track with metrics, visual reporting and consistently insightful advice, guiding us through the SR&ED maze yielding annual 6 figure refunds, structuring incentive plans for our team, securing financing, and playing the very critical CFO role to an absolute 'T' - always bringing value to the table, our revenue has grown by more than 20 fold. Every member of our management and internal accounting teams have enjoyed their interaction with the JRPC team immensely and find their accessibility and extreme responsiveness an absolute pleasure. We highly recommend Jonathan as a very positive addition to the key advisor group of any business looking to take their game to the next level."

Owner-manager, manufacturer, 30 employees



"I've been in business for 4 years now, and I have gone through three other accounting firms before finally finding JRPC. I consider myself lucky to have found the right accountant after only a few years in business. Jonathan has provided me with exactly what I am looking for, and enables me to make informed decisions about my business. Jonathan has a white-glove, silver-tray style firm, and as such provides an exceptionally high quality level of service. No business should be without this type of accounting firm."

Owner-manager, IT services, 10 employees



"I am a long-term client of Jonathan Ruben. His advice over the years has been not only helpful but right on. Even though his practice grew, Jonathan always makes a client feel that he is the only one. He does this by his sincere interest and knowledge. I would highly recommend Jonathan Ruben CA."

Owner-manager, educational services, 15 employees



"Jonathan has been my CA since day one of the launching of my practice and, over the years, has provided extremely sound advice that has proven to be consistently 'on'. The JRPC staff always stay on top of our bookkeeping and are key members of our professional advisory team, assisting us with a wide range of issues, from timing of incorporating new ventures to structuring financial terms with key strategic alliances - to name a couple. In one rare but very special instance, when a client of ours required emergency assistance, the entire JRPC team stepped up big-time on extremely short notice and literally worked on-site through the entire night under quite intense conditions to make a very profound difference. Always emphasizing value, Jonathan takes a sincere interest in my financial well being, both corporate and personal, and gives his all, resulting in trusted comprehensive guidance which is very much appreciated. Based on my almost ten years experience working together with JR as my financial sounding board, I would advise entrepreneurs and professionals alike to engage his services."

"Working with you and your firm for me has been, and hopefully will be, very efficient. I do not experience any drawbacks from the fact that we are on a different continent. It is at the same level of professionalism we ask from all our advisors."

Tax counsel, equity manager, 665 employees



"Jonathan Ruben has been my CA for over 10 years providing the most exceptional client service and attention to detail. Jonathan is not your typical CA who you simply see or speak to once or twice a year around tax time; Rather, he and his organization provide a truly integrated approach of combining financial, business, research and investing guidance. He and his team routinely check in with me to ensure that I and my business are accomplishing our goals. Jonathan helped me set goals both personally and financially, building a successful plan that allowed me to ultimately surpass what I thought was possible. He has always been there going above and beyond.

Furthermore, Jonathan and his team are extremely well versed in Research and Development tax credits, a specialty that very few firms of his size provide. His firm has successfully guided our organization to obtaining tax credits for the past three years. What has amazed our organization is Jonathan's ability to identify eligible SR&ED projects, thus optimizing our situation and really helping our business tremendously, especially during our start up period as it made the difference between making money versus losing money.

Jonathan Ruben is not only an incredible CA but a strong mentor and very solid business coach who brings compassion, dedication and enthusiasm to our world.

Thanks JR for helping me far exceed all business and personal goals."

During that time, in addition to preparing all of the requisite statements and returns, Jonathan along with his staff have always been incredibly responsive to any question or concern and have clearly communicated advice on a variety of matters - all focused on the central theme of tax efficiency of our structure (modified during this period) and the flow of funds through the entities and out to the individuals. We value having a CA proactively plan on our behalf and accordingly we recommend JRPC without any hesitation."
