Trail, BC accounting firm expands service offerings for local businesses

TRAIL, BC, Oct. 1, 2015 /CNW/ - Private businesses in the West Kootenay region have access to a greater breadth of tax and advisory services today, with the union of L. Soligo & Associates and Grant Thornton LLP.

L. Soligo & Associates is a long-standing accounting firm located in Trail, BC. Now operating under a different name—Grant Thornton LLP—the same friendly and familiar faces will continue to provide high-quality service that West Kootenay businesses have come to expect. The Grant Thornton Trail office will provide clients with new opportunities for growth, more extensive tax services and enhanced corporate finance and valuation offerings to clients in Trail, Rossland, Nelson, Castlegar and other communities in the West Kootenays.

"We're excited for this opportunity to join a firm like Grant Thornton. We chose the firm for its great corporate culture, remarkable growth in the mid-market and commitment to our local communities," said Don Catalano, Partner, L. Soligo & Associates. "There will be no interruption to the service clients have come to expect from our office. We've been here for 70 years, and are confident that we will be here for many more. We're not going anywhere."

Grant Thornton, a Canadian member firm of Grant Thornton International Ltd, providing audit, tax and advisory services to businesses across Canada, is looking forward to expanding its footprint in BC and extending its offerings to the West Kootenays.

"At Grant Thornton, working with private businesses is our bread and butter. We believe the L. Soligo & Associates practice is the perfect fit for us, and will allow us to help more private businesses unlock their potential for growth," says Paul Gallo, Managing Partner, Kelowna.

And for Paul, especially, expanding into Trail holds a special meaning. "Having started my accounting career in Trail 32 years ago, it's like things have come full circle. To me, this is just further evidence that L. Soligo & Associates is a good fit for Grant Thornton and vice-versa. We are delighted to welcome the team, and to now call Trail home."
