About Me


Assunta Iannilli CPA

The Journey to My Accounting Career

I love numbers and I love people so you think it would have been an easy career decision for me to become an accountant!  A successful accounting career was staring me straight in the face when I finished my high school accounting program as the top scoring student. However, as a newly graduated student, I had different interests to pursue.

Instead, I went and earned a BA in Political Science, gained experience in the banking sector, and discovered a love of travelling – London, Paris, Salzburg, Lucerne, Venice, Rome, Sorrento, Pisa, Florence and Monte Carlo – to name a few. 

Having the opportunity to explore a different higher learning and gain life experiences, I eventually realized that I was missing my numbers. So, I did a 360 degree turn back to accounting and obtained my Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation. Not the most direct path, but it helped me confirm that this was meant to be my career.💜

Helping Small Businesses Thrive

With over 25 years of experience in business and financial management, I bring a wealth of knowledge to my clients. I have worked with various sizes of small businesses and I understand the challenges and issues that small business owners face.

My clientele includes a large scope of businesses from new sole proprietors to established corporations.  I can help with simple accounting tasks that you may be struggling with or if you are an established small business, I can help with growth or complicated matters you may be challenged with.


Are you looking for a solution finder? 


One such time, a large corporation contacted me to find $100,000 in missing accounts receivables which resulted in me developing a system to streamline their tracking system, so it did not happen again. Whatever your accounting or business financial challenge may be, I love finding solutions for my clients. 💜

What Makes Me Different?

I am easy going, relatable, yet I take a serious interest in wanting your small business to succeed and thrive!

My approach is different.  

I listen to your business story and we work together to find the right solution for you.  This provides additional value than what people may expect from their accountant. If you choose to hire me for your team, this is my approach to the role of being your small business accountant:

Is it time for your small business to thrive?

Accounting has to be dealt with, but not necessarily by you.

Together we can build your bottom line.
