About Us

2019 marked the 25th year of business for Top Shelf Bookkeeping and the perfect opportunity for extending sincere thanks to our clients for their support over the past two decades. It has been our privilege to provide bookkeeping and tax services to you and to grow to become one of Victoria’s favorite tax-preparers.

In 1994, when the company was first started in a converted garage attached to my home, it was hard to imagine growing to have 2 commercial offices, 6 full-time staff and various part-time workers and associates. We believe that this was achieved by strictly following a philosophy of providing a professional grade service in a casual atmosphere for a reasonable price. These are principals that are “engraved in stone” for us and the comments and feedback that many of you have given us tell us we are adhering to them and you appreciate it.

Top Shelf Bookkeeping Ltd extends a warm welcome to all businesses and individuals to come and experience how stress-free tax filing can be. We know you will wish you had found us years ago!
