Your Modern Accountant, is a small business headed up by Patrick Payne and supported by Eda Voykhanskaya, Nicole Jennex and Liezl Bezt. During the busy tax season we bring on new team members to help with the day-to-day and personal tax returns. Patrick personally trains all of them, and we only pick from individuals who have graduated post-secondary in Accounting in Canada. So every team member who has worked or will work with us, are all considered accountants.
Patrick started this company back in 2010. From 2010 - May 2017 it was known as KHFinancial. Patrick started this company while he was in University at Ryerson for Accounting, as well as, a working full-time job. To this day, Patrick is the one who answers most emails, all of the calls (when he is between appointments) and does the lion's share of the work. Patrick is YMA, he takes a personal interest on all of the clients he takes on, and personally helps clean up back tax situations. He has big plans for YMA, and is working towards making tax filing in Canada easy, accessible, affordable and stress-free.
Eda Voykhanskaya has been with YMA since December 2017. She is on her way through the CPA program and has proven a valuable asset to our company. Eda works directly with our self-employed and corporate clients to ensure all of their needs are met
Nicole Jennex has been with YMA since January 2018. She specializes in standard and self-employed tax filing. She works closely with our clients to assit them with their taxes, as well as, CRA needs and communication. She is key in our requests, objections and adjustments with the CRA that we make on behalf of our clients.
Liezl Bezt has been with YMA since December 2018. She specializes in corporate taxes, as well as, all kinds of personal taxes. She has experience working with the CRA to resolve client issues. Liezl is also on her way to completing her CPA schooling and exams. We are really excited to have the chance to work with Liezl, and know she is going to be instrumental in our's as well as, our client's success.
