Here at Hubdoc, we’re committed to showcasing accounting and bookkeeping firms that are doing great things. LiveCA LLP, a virtual full-service CPA firm, is definitely one of them.
LiveCA is focused on providing a progressive approach to accounting that helps improve the lives of their entrepreneurial and young professional client base. The firm is built on the foundation that accountants can provide the best and most efficient services by embracing new technology. Their team has leveraged cloud accounting apps to cut down on administrative tasks and is spending more time providing value-add, advisory services to clients.
LiveCA has firmly established themselves as a cloud accounting leader in Canada. Last year, LiveCA became Canada’s first Xero Platinum Partner. The Platinum title is reserved for partners that have 500 customers using Xero.
The entire team works remotely, making it possible to serve clients all across Canada. Their headcount is currently at 30 – a number that grew from the firm's initial two employees and is continuing to scale today. This, specifically, is what we discussed in a hour-long deep dive session with LiveCA, which is available for on-demand viewing. We were joined by Co-founder Chad Davis and the firm's Onboarding and Training Manager, Chris Frame, to discuss:
- How LiveCA approaches hiring
- Recruitment resources and tactics
- The soft skills important to the team
- Favorite interview questions
- How trial workdays fit into their interview process
- Training and onboarding programs
