Meet The Founding Face Behind YOUR BOTTOM LINE
I’m Ross Libbey, proud owner of YOUR BOTTOM LINE.
I look forward to sharing my story. I hope that you will enjoy getting to know me better.
I got my CA designation in 1984, and after years of climbing the corporate ladder of success, I found that it was leaning against the wrong wall. I’ve been working in my own business since 1990, and YOUR BOTTOM LINE was created in 2004.
As is often the case with any CPA hanging out a shingle, the business at first grew predominantly from a small business tax base and expanded from there. Today, we handle thousands of tax returns - personal, corporate and US as well. In addition, we are very focused on the mainstream of our business - our VCFO clients and helping in running their successful businesses. We handle not only their corporate and personal taxes but also a wide variety of advisory and other services.
As an individual, I believe what sets me and the YBL Team apart from the others is our honesty, integrity, and ability to build lasting relationships with our clients. I also firmly believe that if we help others succeed, we too will succeed.
I’m passionate about helping others, especially small to medium-sized business owners achieve better success in their businesses. Recently, we reviewed a new client situation and saved them tens of thousands of dollars in the course of a morning. Also, seeing new businesses getting up and running and being able to help in the process of becoming more successful, are instances that are immensely rewarding for me.
One of the most satisfying moments in business was when my son, Mike, joined the company, 9 years ago, and then gradually became my critical right arm at YOUR BOTTOM LINE. We wouldn't be the company we are today without him.
When I am not at work, I love to travel and read and practice theatre. I am proud to say that I am the only accountant (that I know of) in community theatre. I am also passionate about social causes and donate to the WINGS Maternity Home and the 100 Men/Women Movement, amongst others.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things which matter to me and how they influence the way I do business.
