Linda Barney, CPB
Linda is our top dog and a certified professional bookkeeper. Her accounting journey began in 1997 when she graduated with honours from all 3 programs Accounting, Computers, and Business Administration from the Toronto School of Business. Linda has worked in the IT industry and also spent many years working as a mechanic along with keeping the books. Linda opened Barney Bookkeeping originally in 2007 but switched gears when she was offered a prestigious position at a large accounting firm where she managed a team of bookkeepers and looked after audits. After almost 10 years knee-deep in paperwork, she knew there had to be a better way. Barney Bookkeeping reopened in 2018 as a paperless accounting firm. Linda now specializes in cloud technology and is Advanced Certified in Quickbooks Online and Xero. Over the years Linda has been responsible for many different aspects of multiple client businesses including but not limited to CRA compliance, Provincial Tax, and Payroll in the Provinces of Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia. Linda’s vast knowledge of different provincial requirements can help offer strategic advice and support to implement and maintain regulatory compliance. She is a trusted advisor and team leader. Linda works with business owners who want to grow their businesses and spend less time on bookkeeping and compliance. Relationships are essential in this industry and Linda places a high value on trust and communication with clients. As a Member of the Board for the Oxford County United Way, she is a valued volunteer and heavily involved in her community.

Always ready to learn new tricks and is more than happy to share her treats with others to open up more opportunities. Brie is keeping a close watch from the Hamilton area, where she enjoys exploring.

Hannah is quite the watchdog with an excellent eye for detail. Hannah is located in the backyard of Brantford. Her background in the financial services industry includes insurance and she is accustomed to advising clients in regards to all possible futures. Hannah is also working towards her designation to advise you on all tax-related matters. Even though Hannah is more of a cat person, so you won’t find her chasing her own tail, she is one to take charge and control of any situation thrown her way. After work, instead of spending her time at the dog park, Hannah enjoys exploring new worlds with her husband and friends.
We are also a fun team. When we are not busy doing accounting work. We like getting involved in Community events.
We help raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oxford County by participating in PLAY FOR KIDS’ SAKE.

We also make other impacts around the world with B1G1 by providing clean water, planting trees and helping animals. As a small business B1G1 can help us change the world in a big way and it is important for us to leave the world a better place than we found it.
