About Us


At Thiel Greene we provide our clients with focused and personalized accounting and tax services because we care about our clients’ success. As a locally-owned and managed firm, we know the importance of advice based on an in-depth understanding of our clients’ needs combined with the latest developments in tax and accounting.

Chartered Professional Accountants. We offer tax and accounting services to a wide range of clients including private corporations, farms, not-for-profit organizations, registered charitable organizations, trusts, and individuals.

Competitive Advantage


At Thiel Greene, we understand small business because we are a small business. If you’re unsure about whether to buy or lease; whether the time is right to expand; the pros and cons of switching suppliers; how to handle an insurance claim; how to buy out a fellow shareholder; or many other financial issues, we can give you experienced advice because we have been through it ourselves with our own business.
