Welcome – A Little About All Ways Counting

All Ways Counting is a North Vancouver based bookkeeping, accounting and consulting firm established in 1997, transforming Paula Barclay’s personal dream into a reality. Our team takes the time to listen and understand your business and the unique challenges you face. Together, we bring 45 years of knowledge and experience and will provide custom solutions turning your bookkeeping challenges into business opportunities.

The firm is nestled in the District of North Vancouver, in a convenient location close to the Iron Workers (Second Narrows) Bridge.

All Ways Counting’s business is based on a diverse clientele ranging from Sole Proprietorships to Corporations of up to 40 employees, from Professionals to Not-for-Profits, from start-ups to the long established.  ( See our “Client Industries” page.)  Since All Ways Counting was established in 1997, many of our long-time clients have assisted in our growth by passing our name onto their colleagues. Their referrals have led to our internal growth, with All Ways Counting expanding from a company of one to it’s present team. (Meet the team at the “About” page.)

We strive to build lasting relationships with our bookkeeping clients, many of whom have been with us for more than 10 years. There is everything to be said for continuity when dealing with your finances; It creates peace of mind, knowing you are working with the same professional bookkeeper year after year. We value respect, integrity, communication, professionalism and teamwork to provide exceptional service for our clients.

  • Paula is essential to the operations of our organization. She possesses a unique ability to parachute into a problem set and help resolve in a timely and professional manner. This is of great significance, as she tends to many architects in similar fashion. It is a gift…. To us.

  • Paula is a pleasure to work with. She is pleasant, astute and a consummate professional.

    Piers C.

  • I was recently introduced to Paula through a supplier we work with and she is exactly what I’ve been looking for! I had some ongoing software/bookkeeping issues and she has the Sage 50 software knowledge I needed with a patient and supportive nature to help me get on track in just a few short sessions. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services. She is a true gem!

  • We are a small, incorporated company in Vancouver. Since 2014, Paula and her team have provided us with outstanding accounting and bookkeeping support. They have given us the basic skills to run our “Day to Day” accounting (and are always a phone call away if we need help). They handle all the complex legal and government accounting.

  • Paula has been instrumental in the growth of our business. Her experience and effectiveness are part of the driving force helping us evolve on a daily basis as a Architecture Studio. Her “Bigger Picture” approach helps us keep focused on our practice, while keeping us informed of financial parameters.
