KPMG in Canada has entered into an agreement with Intuit Canada to provide QuickBooks Online as part of its new Finance Plus cloud accounting service offering for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Canada.

KPMG Finance Plus leverages the power of QuickBooks' cloud technology to deliver easy and efficient digital bookkeeping and financial reporting, while providing clients with access to a dedicated KPMG accountant for ongoing business support and financial insights.

"KPMG created Finance Plus to provide business owners with a streamlined, affordable way to outsource their bookkeeping and financial reporting using our secure cloud platform, supported by a dedicated KPMG virtual accountant," says Peter Gribilas, National Leader, Finance Plus, KPMG in Canada. "We're delighted to collaborate with QuickBooks and offer this premier financial management software to our Finance Plus clients. Our strategic alliance with QuickBooks, together with our curated suite of software tools, enables us to offer end-to-end financial services and analytics for business owners who would like to leverage stronger insights from their financial information."

Finance Plus is a secure, online cloud accounting service that uses leading technologies, including QuickBooks Online, to deliver complete accounting and bookkeeping functions with ease and efficiency. This service can organize and manage essential financial documents, such as invoices and receipts, and bring your financial picture into focus at a glance. A dedicated KPMG virtual accountant, backed by KPMG's professional network of business advisors, provides a deeper understanding of key business insights and growth opportunities, rather than time-consuming bookkeeping tasks.

"We're thrilled to be joining forces with a Canadian leader like KPMG," says Gary Drysdale, Director of Sales at Intuit QuickBooks Canada. "We believe this alliance has the ability to go beyond just saving Canadian businesses time on accounting and bookkeeping tasks. Combining strengths with other leaders in the technology and finance space and connecting businesses to an accounting professional with deep experience are some of the most important pieces to fueling the success and growth of Canadian small-and medium-sized businesses."
