Peter Berry of Welch LLP has always readily offered sound advice with respect to any questions we have had pertaining to the condominium corporation accounting field. I know that I can count on Peter to provide any information and answer any questions we may have with respect to our clients needs. I have recommended and will continue to recommend Welch to existing and new clients as our working experience with Welch has been very positive. We have been using Welch LLP for the past 15+ years. Peter has even been out to Board meetings to respond to the Directors' questions/concerns they may have.

Working with Welch compared to our last auditing firm is like night and day. The entire staff at Welch including Peter Berry, who has been my go-to contact, has been very helpful. He structured our company in the most efficient way possible which in turn saves us money every year. Welch has lifted the burden of our tax and accounting activities. Welch has a great reputation and was highly recommended by our bookkeeper - it was an easy decision. Welch could be best described as professional, timely, and friendly. I look for people who are approachable, friendly and who speak my language - not just accountant speak. Welch has been very effective for us.
