Jay Goodis, CPA, CA
CEO & Co-Founder
I’m a tax accountant with a knack for always finding a better way. I love a good challenge and our clients provide that to me with requests for new templates they want included in the suite. Combining my tax experience with a “think outside the box” attitude, I seek to deliver exceptional products that surpass your expectations. After a day of changing the tax world, nothing beats time spent with my wife and three little ones.
Jay specialized in tax at both a national and a mid-market accounting firm where he completed tax planning and compliance for individuals, trusts, and private corporations. In public practice, he also led the rebuild of many internal operations leading to significant efficiencies, time savings, and superior recoveries.
Jay has completed the In-depth tax courses, is the former Vice President of the York District CPA Association, a former committee member of the Canadian Tax Foundation Corporate Management Tax Conference, and a former Executive with the Canadian Tax Foundation Young Practitioners Steering Committee.

Andrew Skujins, CPA, CGA
Director & Co-Founder
I bring extensive information technology, accounting, and tax expertise to my projects, and build solutions to address the complex process and reporting needs of our clients. I don’t care about how things are being done – I care about how they should be done.
I seek to support operational efficiency and professional excellence by offering innovative solutions to meet difficult challenges. I believe the little things matter, and always strive for excellence.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter, expert photography, science and technology documentaries, and deep-sky astronomy.
Our mission is to create accurate, user-friendly templates for the professional services market to support the efficient and quality completion of tax planning and tax accounting calculations.
We will collaborate with advisors as their business needs evolve, develop templates to improve their work processes, and build relationships as business partners.
We take our mission seriously, and welcome your feedback to guide future development. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please contact us.
Before anything else, you need to be confident that the figures from our worksheets are correct and reliable.
Each template is subjected to intensive quality control procedures to ensure that the solutions are accurate. We test our templates against actual client working papers prepared by public accounting firms, and further with other reliable references such as CRA bulletins, tax textbooks, and professional articles.
We specialize in the life-cycle of your engagements (and your clients). Our templates incorporate best practices in preparation, review, and finalization that are easy to integrate into your workflow.
Prior to release, each template is tested in live environments to ensure that it meets user requirements. Whether you have a situation needing special adjustments, or simply to ensure the flow is useful – we’ve got you covered.
We listen to our clients and we focus our efforts on the templates and features that you need most.
Since you know your business best, your requests are our top priorities. Our vision is to develop a template for every significant tax calculation to make your life as easy as possible.
There’s more to good tax software than just the numbers – or else we’d all be driving the same car, eating the same lunch, etc.
We care about the details that will make your life easier, such as integrated review features, helpful diagnostics, and a polished interface. Even the simplest worksheets spend significant time in development and quality control as we carefully build the best product possible.
What We Do"The work is already being completed" — why do I need TTI?

Why We Do ItAfter all, why build a solution if there's no problem?
The challenging environment of taxation is almost legendary. Advisors face pressure to meet high-volume deadlines for multiple clients while always striving to maintain uncompromising quality of service in a dynamic legislative environment.
You expect your team to apply professional knowledge, but complex calculations also demand Excel technical knowledge. Due care requires your staff to spend significant time building, formatting, and reviewing even routine calculations.
Many progressive offices have documents that they use to produce standard calculations, but studies into business spreadsheets confirm that most of these documents suffer from:
- Errors in modelling or programming
- Missing functionality
- Minimal quality control
- Difficulty in use or understanding
- No documentation
Your cost of building custom templates from scratch is a large investment yielding poor returns in almost all cases.
Are These Symptoms Familiar?
It’s easy to see the signs of a business ready for a better solution:
- Time spent on activities that don’t deliver client value
- Inconsistency between files, between staff, or year to year
- Time spent reviewing formulas, formatting, or adjusting page margins
- “Reinventing the wheel” even when working on similar calculations
- Making calculation changes after review notes, or a change in situation
- Ad-hoc working paper adjustments to accommodate difficult calculations
