My name is Mark Goodfield. Welcome to The Blunt Bean Counter ™, a blog that shares my thoughts on income taxes, finance and the psychology of money. I am a Chartered Professional Accountant. This blog is meant for everyone, but in particular for high net worth individuals and owners of private corporations. My posts are blunt, opinionated and even have a twist of humour/sarcasm. You've been warned. Please note the blog posts are time sensitive and subject to changes in legislation or law.

Plutus Award Nomination and Looking for an Accounting Practice

Plutus Nomination

I want to thank everyone who nominated me for a Plutus Award in the category of “Best Tax-Focused Personal Finance Blog”. It is an honour considering the other great blogs in the different categories and I really appreciate your votes and support for The Blunt Bean Counter blog!

This is the second year in a row I have been nominated in this category and though I am just a little Canadian tax blog up against some large and formidable U.S. based blogs (including Forbes Magazine), I am happy to be waving the Canadian flag.

Accounting Firm Acquisition

On another note, since I know there are lots of accountants who read this blog, I figured I may as well unabashedly use this forum to make it known that my firm Cunningham LLP is looking to acquire an accounting firm.

Cunningham has purchased 5 practices over the last fifteen years or so. We’re looking for firms in the Toronto and very closely surrounding areas only. We typically look for practices with billings between $300,000 to $1,000,000 that have minimal internal bookkeeping and have billing rates that can be supported by a mid-size firm.

So, if you’re looking to sell or retire, or are part of a young partnership and would like to join a larger entity (or know someone who fits any of those descriptions), please contact me by email at
