The Bookkeeping Company of Ottawa was founded by Moe Tabesh, CPA, CGA in 2014.
Before earning his Chartered Professional Accountant Designation Moe studied at Heritage College in Hull, Quebec, Moe worked long and hard to support himself through university. Here is his story.
As a newcomer to Canada at the age of 21, Moe did not know where to begin building his new life and career. He enrolled in university, but like many Canadians, he had to find a way to support himself during his studies.
One of his first jobs was as a taxi driver, but the 17-hour shifts were so demanding that he could not attend his classes. At this point, even though Moe was running a business and supporting himself, he was not satisfied. He wanted to do so much more in life—he wanted to learn more about entrepreneurship and contribute more to society. Somehow, though, he felt stuck and helpless. He had to dig deep to find a way to get back on his feet, gain back his confidence and succeed.
How does a person do all this? By becoming an expert in business and commerce. Moe made a decision to stop working and finish university to become a Chartered Professional Accountant. He registered at Heritage College under the bright leadership of professors Tony Guarna and Ian Ramsay. He enrolled at Ottawa University right after and finished the Bachelor of Commerce program in 2.5 years.
During this time, Moe developed a very keen and passionate interest in business, taxation, accounting and entrepreneurship. He aced his exams and started helping family and friends with his acquired business and taxation skills to help them save more money by paying less taxes.
Soon he founded his own taxation company called Express Tax to help students get their refunds faster by e-filing their taxes and reminding them to claim their tuition fees (T2202A) since they could be carried forward indefinitely.
As he proudly went about his new initiative at a favourite coffee shop, the owner of the shop approached him and asked if he could help his business succeed as well. Anxiously, Moe accepted, and soon, other local businesses and professionals started approaching him for help. The rest, as we say, is history…
