I have been working with Jerry Coulson for over 20 years.  He has advised me on my finances as well as done my book keeping for my small business for these years.  He has a deep understanding of finances, as well as the government's requirement and ways we can benefit through the tax situations that occur due to these regulations.  I have had all of my children work with Jerry as well.   Recently I advised my daughter on a financial situation.  At the end of our conversation I told her to call Jerry to ensure what I was telling her was correct.You can feel secure in your trust of Forest Financial Planning for your financial future.

We have had the pleasure of working with Jerry Coulson of the FFP Group for over 15 years now and have been extremely pleased by the caliber of work done. He has had to deal with many different tax situations throughout the years as we have done contract work in Canada, Chile, Malaysia, Trinidad and the USA. This frequently included his having to do tax returns for two different countries and Jerry always put in the extra effort to make sure it was done right, even when the "tax specialists" had made errors in their calculations.

We have relied on Jerry year after year and appreciate his knowledge, dependability, honesty and forth rightness regarding all communications with us and we give him the highest recommendation and pray he will never retire!

Jerry Coulson is a trustworthy and conscientious bookkeeper, accountant and financial advisor.  He has completed my tax returns for more than 10 years and has been tenacious to achieve the best outcome for me, even finding errors made by previous companies.  I was impressed by his diligence in completing the final tax return for my father - a complicated process as he had many investments and issues.  I am happy to recommend Jerry.

Lynn and I have been with Jerry Coulson for our personal and small business accounting and tax needs for a few years now and we both are extremely pleased with the services he has provided. I have worked with registered accountants before but they never came close to the benchmark that Jerry sets. Jerry is exceptionally knowledgeable regarding CRA and small business requirements and has taken the stress out of the process. He has provided highly beneficial guidance to my company to streamline expenses and operations; quite literally, working with Jerry is the best investment I made for my business. He is a pleasure to work with and we wouldn’t trade him for anyone else.
