Our Story

In 2002 I founded my company Irene’s Bookkeeping and Office Solutions Ltd. For 18 years I have offered comprehensive and engaged support for Edmonton’s small businesses. 

The spring of 2020 brought about a season of change and it became clear it was time for a fresh new look. Gather Business Solutions was formed from a collection of experience, vision, and passion. My team and I re-branded in order to offer our clients a better back-office solution. To gather means to bring together or assemble from various places, sources, or people; Gather as a company is committed to connecting our clients to the places, information, and people that can help to grow their business. We do this by providing expert bookkeeping, administration and office services and dedicating ourselves to learning and networking so we may offer modern and creative solutions for small business owners.

I was a brand new company with no bookkeeping services in place. They took the time to come and meet me as a team and asked what I was looking for and at the time I wasn't even sure. They explained what they all did and it was exactly what I was looking for. I enjoy working with a smaller company as you get to know them on a personnel level [...] it's a one-stop shop for all your bookkeeping services and fantastic service."

[Gather] helped me set up an invoicing system that is professional and easy to use. [They] also do all of my tax stuff so I don't have to (and neither does my husband).

Working with Gather relieved us of the many hours of paper work and then we could focus on what we wanted to do, building and planning. Gather was willing to being adaptable to our sometimes busy schedules. Fair and honest work done in a predictable manner. And the cost saving advice we were happy to take. We’ve been with Irene for many years and have a great working relationship!
