FIRM HISTORY

The partners of Weinberg & Gaspirc Chartered Accountants LLP (W&G) originated in PricewaterhouseCoopers where they worked mainly with owner-managed businesses, not-for-profit organizations, and individuals.  Weinberg & Gaspirc was established in July 1996 when we left PricewaterhouseCoopers to continue to serve the owner managed business and not-for-profit markets.  In particular we serve as controllers and/or CFO’s for a number of hospital foundations and other not-for-profits and charities. Our firm has built a substantial body of knowledge and expertise in this area and have been engaged to assist a number of not-for-profits and charities in setting up appropriate accounting structures, ensuring compliance with donor and funder agreements, aligning policies with organizations’ needs and implementing other best practices.  

We believe our combined experience and training position us well to provide quality, hands-on service to our clients.  One of our major strengths is our team approach to service which allows all of the partners to be conversant with all of our clients' needs.  The advantages to our clients are direct access to senior people and continuity in service providers who understand their business and personal situations.
