Scott Anderson, FCPA, FCGA

Scott obtained his Certified General Accountant (CGA) designation (later to be known as the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation) in 1990.  Scott was awarded his fellowship designation from CGA Canada in 2000.

Scott worked in hospital finance and the banking industry before settling into a career in public accounting in 1990.  He worked for Grant Kirkup & Co until 2000, when he founded the firm D. S Anderson & Company in Boissevain, MB.  In 2005, he merged his firm into DSCP, a Western Canadian regional firm and was a partner in the Edmonton AB office.  He left public practice for a short period of time, serving as Senior Director at the Manitoba Certified General Accountants Association.  In 2011, he re-entered practice and co-founded Anderson Strath, Certified General Accountants located in Brandon.  After a merger in 2017, Scott now serves as managing partner of Alliance Accounting Group Chartered Professional Accountants Inc.

Scott was very active in the CGA organization both provincially and nationally.  He served on provincial committees and the Board for a span of 21 years, including a term as provincial president in 1998-1999.  He also served as the Manitoba representative on the CGA Canada Board for 6 years, including chairmanship of various national committees and on the Executive Committee.

Scott is immensely proud of his upbringing on a farm near Hamiota, for which a love of farming developed that continues to this day.  His brother continues to operate the family farm, now in their 138th year.

Scott is married to husband Brian, who is also a business owner of The Cabinet Company located in Brandon.  He is an active curler and enjoys watching all sports.  Together they spend time traveling, with their families and with their pets.

Scott’s preferred areas of practice include advanced personal and corporate taxation (with special emphasis on farming entities), business and succession planning and providing various solutions to enhance his clients’ success.

Coronavirus Update: March 21, 2020In an effort to ensure our clients are informed as to how our firm is operating during this health crisis, we will be providing updates as frequently as necessary on this website.

We continue to monitor the situation daily and can make changes quickly. We are taking this VERY SERIOUSLY.

The current measures undertaken to do our part in curbing the spread of the coronavirus are as follows:

- No member of the public will be allowed into our offices (read below to find out how to get information to us).
-We have implemented a secure file transfer solution. To send us information look under the “Resources” tab above and find our offices under "Links”.
- Staff will continue to work out of our Hamiota and Brandon offices as normal.
- We have implemented strict social distancing procedures and all other procedures as suggested by health authorities. Anyone that is feeling ill or is at any risk will not be allowed to work in the office.

Even though the filing deadline for personal tax returns has been extended to June 1, 2020, we are working as hard as we can for as long as we can to get returns completed and filed. We understand that clients expecting refunds will want their returns filed as quickly as possible. For those with a balance owing, you will have until September 1, 2020 to pay any 2019 income tax amounts to the Receiver General. Either way, we want to get the work done for you as quickly and efficiently as we can.

We are asking our clients to call our office for further instruction once they feel they have all of the information ready to file their return. You can reach our Brandon office at 204-726-1995 (toll free 888-726-1995) and Hamiota office at 204-764-2544. Our office hours are 8:30 to 4:30 Monday to Friday.

At that time, we will speak with you on the telephone and determine what, of the documents that you have, we actually need to file your return. Many income slips are already available to us by direct download from CRA. Once you are aware of what is needed, then the method of delivery will be explained to you.

Dropping off information at any of our offices will still be available, but you should contact our office for information on how that will work in each location. Documents that we require can be mailed to us or scanned and sent to us using our new secure file transfer solution. To send us scanned information hover over the “Resources” tab above and click "Links” to find our new secure file transfer solution. Again, please contact our office for specific procedures.

Once your returns are completed, we will again be calling you to provide you options for receiving your returns, signing what is necessary and remitting payment for preparation. These options will include mailing the information to you or emailing you the information using a secure electronic transmission.

We are doing our diligent best to continue to serve our clients to the best of our ability. We may have had to change how we are serving you, but our emphasis is still to continue to deliver to you the services that you require.

We appreciate your patience with the changes that we have implemented. Continue to check back to the website for updates to our service to you.

Please note that the details of the new programs that were unveiled by the Canadian government this week can be found under the “Resources” tab above and finding it under “Forms Centre”.
