    As a CPA in Canada, it makes me happy to know that you guys are talking so much about the numbers and accounting aspect of running the business. With high volume business, it is definetely recommended that you hire a bookkeeper/accountant to do your books. The bookkeeping itself can consume a lot of time, especially if you do not know what you are doing.
