Management consulting


Accurate financial analysis: a significant SUPPORT in your decision making.

You have a substantial investment project that requires complex and accurate calculations? You want your business to reach and maintain its full potential? Blain, Joyal, Charbonneau’s certified professional accountants are here to help you.

Our services include:

Analysis of investment projects and of profitability study

We offer advices in studying the anticipated return on investment. Based on your assumptions, we create pessimistic, realistic and optimistic scenarios.

Budget forecasting

We have created software that compiles financial data on estimated results and also presents the liquid assets required to realize them.

Financial projections

Your company needs new or additional financing? Financial projections are built into the process of determining your needs and preparing a complete portrait to present to financial institutions.

Under this type of mandate, a CPA helps the company make financial projections, without being required to provide assurance with respect to these projections.

These projections are based on assumptions that reflect the management's planned courses of action, given the most likely economic conditions for the period covered. They also take into account one or more speculative hypotheses consistent with the purpose of the information, but which management believes are not necessarily the most probable.

Consulting services on financing applications

We stay up-to-date on the latest financing products and bank requirements so we can advise you in your research and help you settle the best agreement possible for your financing needs.

Grant applications

We stay on top of the latest products and budget updates in order to apply for the largest grant you are entitled to. Because we have trainer certification from Emploi-Québec, we can offer training on programs that are eligible for subsidies of up to 50%.

Due diligence

Your company wants to complete an acquisition? Performing due diligence is an excellent support for your transaction analysis. A chartered public accountant of your choice will apply specific review procedures and produce a report on the results of this investigation and other aspects of the transaction.

This service includes:
