The VS Accounting Experience
In the past 21 years we’ve learned a lot. Experience goes hand in hand with ongoing development and we stay current with the latest tax laws, regulations, programs and funding opportunities so you can receive the full benefit. We believe in diversification so we can better understand how the decisions we make affect all aspects of your business – which means we can offer you an even bigger advantage.
Vincent Shank grew up as the third youngest of eight kids on a 45 cattle dairy farm in Verner, Ontario. Although he has had a passion for farming from a young age, his entrepreneurial spirit always pushed him in the direction of business. Whether this meant more head of cattle, more efficient processes, better equipment or bigger profits.
Vincent’s business-mind led him to study Business and Accounting where he excelled and graduated top of the class. Vincent was quickly offered a position at the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) working out of North Bay as a CRA Auditor working with businesses across Northern and Central Ontario. For many years he worked hands on with small business owners and realized his true passion was helping people. He wanted to help businesses and farming operations grow and succeed, much like his father’s.
In 1997, Vincent Shank officially opened the doors to the head office of VS Accounting in North Bay and soon after diversified his services with VS Marketing and VS Technology to offer the essential services required to remain in business. He then expanded his offices to New Liskeard, Parry Sound and Huntsville and offered a Small Business Startup Training Program through the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities for over 10 years. With his heart set on helping farmers and business owners with their operations, he quickly grew. VS Accounting specializes in operational planning, business planning, tax services and seeking out funding opportunities.
Today Vincent is celebrating his 21st year in business with VS Group.
