I have employed Janet Whytock's services for several years. She is one of the most professional and experienced advisors I have come across in a long time. Her attention to detail, her flexibility in addition to her knowledge of bookkeeping systems is second to none! Janet is an excellent trainer - friendly and approachable- and has the ability to simplify the most complicated bookkeeping issues to make them both understandable and user friendly. She is a trusted advisor and Terry Smith and Associates consider themselves very fortunate to have Janet's services available to us. Without hesitation I give Janet Whytock Business and Accounting Services my highest recommendation! Terry Smith
