When you have FBC as your tax specialist, we stand by you, your business, and your family through anything CRA can throw at you.
Our strength comes from our team of tax experts and our specialized tax software, ATOM.
“ATOM” stands for Advanced Tax Optimization for Members.
It’s exclusive to Members of FBC.

We review your tax information and input it into ATOM, which evaluates and considers hundreds of different tax benefit combinations in order to provide you with the best possible long term tax result.

ATOM in Action
Recently FBC Members sold some farm property for a significant gain of over $700,000.
- The husband’s reportable income was $10,000
- The wife had an income of $50,000
What did ATOM Find vs. Others?
Using competing accounting software on the setting “reduce tax payable”, the competitor software found that the husband had combined taxes of over $15,000 payable!
Using the same information, ATOM applied just enough of the non-capital losses incurred over the previous years to the result of a $5,000 net refund in taxes between the two tax returns!
ATOM had put $20,000 more dollars in the Member’s pocket ($5,000 refund versus $15,000 payable) that our competition could not find!
FBC Members benefit from our proprietary tax system that stays current with the latest tax changes and that analyzes dozens of scenarios to ensure that your Canadian income tax return is further optimized to meet your personal and farm or small business situation and put more money in your pocket this year and over the long term.
