If you have traveled outside of Canada, in the past month or if you have a cough, fever or other flu-like symptoms, please drop off or call to reschedule your pick up appointment once you no longer have symptoms.
We appreciate your patience and understanding and we are looking forward to continuing to service our valued clients.

Integrated Accounting and Tax Solutions, previously known as Accubalance Accounting and Financial Services is a Hamilton based business operating for over 30 years. The business was first established by Gladys Bizior who would have clients sit at her kitchen table while she completed their personal tax returns. Years later, her son and current C.E.O. Richard Bizior took over and ran the business out of the living room of his Stoney Creek home until we moved to our current location on Upper Ottawa Street for the last 18 years. As a business that was initially operated as a service to family and friends, we pride ourselves in our development of long lasting relationships with clients that have been with us since the very beginning. We started with 200 tax clients and now currently service over 2,500 personal tax clients, 90 corporations and over 70 small businesses.
