bigstock-Tax-Forms-1691023Welcome to The Montana Group!

Bookkeepers do more than add and subtract. Today’s bookkeepers offer a wealth of financial information, prepare tax returns, ensure your records are kept in accordance with legal and tax requirements and reduce your margin for error… at a cost far less than a Chartered Accountant would charge to clean up bookkeeping disasters.

So why not consider outsourcing your bookkeeping and accounting services? Many business owners find looking after the financial side of their business to be a tedious task.

Leveraging the power of QuickBooks® and engaging highly qualified bookkeepers with diverse experience, The Montana Group has the expertise necessary to take your company to the next level.

And, with the effects of technology moving ahead exponentially, we can serve clients both near and far from our Newmarket, Ontario, home base more easily than we ever dreamed.

If we’re not already working with you, we’d be honoured to have your business – and, if you are currently a client of The Montana Group, we hope to continue to make your life easier!


Maureen BurlesonHi, I’m Maureen Burleson, President of The Montana Group.  I’ve been doing bookkeeping for clients and preparing tax returns for over 30 years.

click image for more infoI am a Certified Professional Bookkeeper and a proud member in good standing of the Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada (IPBC).

As an entrepreneur I recognize that my success is based on that of my current and potential clients and I try to foresee problems and solutions for others.  We have differentiated ourselves in the business community, have adopted some green methods of bookkeeping and are helping proprietors develop contingency plans. These include creating strategic procedures to terminate their businesses whether they are still available to do it themselves with our assistance or we act on their behalf. For more information on this, please visit my website Ontario Business Executor.

Charitable giving is something near and dear to my heart. Doane House Hospice is a charitable organization that I have been involved in as a volunteer and have financially supported for 20 years now. I recently received on behalf of the Government of Canada, an award for Outstanding Volunteer Achievement for Doane House Hospice.  You can check out their website here.

In 2013, I was honoured to be recognized as a Business Person of Character by The Character Community Foundation of York Region.

But my success does not center solely on me.  Meet the team.
