Chartered Professional Accountant
Louis was born and raised in Edmonton Alberta (a place that he still refers to as home and visits annually). He graduated from the University of Alberta (Commerce Program) in 1988 and received his Chartered Accounting designation in January 1991 (WOW 25 years as a CA/CPA ... no wonder he is turning grey!). After six years of public practice, Louis accepted a CFO position with Eastwood Companies and moved to beautiful British Columbia. Now calls Vancouver his second home and he even cheers for the Canucks, Lions & ESPECIALLY the Whitecaps!
In 2000, Louis re-entered public practice by launching his professional accounting firm "Louis T. Picco Inc." and the company has been growing steadily since then. His firm from day one has been committed to helping its clients "KEEP WHATS YOURS" and deliver its services in a prompt and professional manner. Louis has been a member of BNI since 2000 and BNI referrals have been a large reason for the company's strong growth. If not in the office, Louis can be found practicing his yoga skills with his daughter in West Vancouver or cheering for the favorite sports team in the pub with friends or live in person at the stadium.

Louis and his team are really good at what they do. Louis is professional, personable, and always ready to explain what he is doing and why. He's also accessible: he's one of the rare people who always calls back right away. We've grown to over 40 employees, and Louis has grown with us. We are very happy with his services, whenever I hear anyone mention they need a great accountant, I recommend Louis.
When we first started to work with Louis, he really took the time to get to know us and understand our business needs. Now, years later, I appreciate that he makes himself available to us whenever we need him and always has time to carefully explain complex issues. Last year when we were audited by CRA, he was extremely helpful. He took the time to plan with us before the audit, and support us through the entire process. It's a pleasure to work with Louis.
The first time I met Louis he gave me an initial assessment on my personal tax situation, and I liked his approach. A year or so later I was happy to ask him to handle the files for five corporations. He's skilled at quickly identifying issues and suggesting solutions. I have worked with a number Louis' staff members, and they are all very good too. I'm happy to recommend Louis and his team, and I do so regularly.
