About Us

We’re not your typical accounting firm!

Founded 55 years ago in 1963, Stern Cohen’s talented partners and team members specialize in the areas of tax, accounting, assurance, estate planning, business advisory and bookkeeping services for a client base in the greater Toronto area. Yes, we are a “one stop shop” when it comes to accounting!

Stern Cohen has a high partner-to-client ratio, and this means more senior people offering quality guidance to our clients. As a Stern Cohen client, you’ll benefit from a continuing relationship with one or more of our partners and specialists who will be available to you, when you need us. We take great pride in the long-term relationships we have with many of our clients who appreciate that we are large enough to provide the full range of services they require, but small enough to respond promptly to their individual needs.

But you don’t have to take our word for it. This website includes many customer reviews for all of our services. Why not jump straight to our client testimonial page – to read some rave reviews!

In addition, check out our one of kind Team page and our revealing Partner and Manager profiles. Don’t forget the Resource section for articles, upcoming events and links to media coverage (and accolades) in the Toronto Star and the Globe and Mail.

Selecting an accounting firm is an important decision with far reaching consequences. We encourage you to take the time to do your research before making your choice.

One more thing. Stern Cohen is part of the GGI global network, a worldwide association of independent accounting and advisory firms. The GGI affiliation provides our clients with access to expertise outside of Canada in over 55 countries.

As a business owner,

I’ve been fortunate to work with the Stern Cohen team. At a critical juncture, they provided the vital assistance my business needed and they continue to support the growth of my business today. I highly recommend their accounting and business advisory services.
