About Us

Our Story

Common Cents Consulting Ltd. was founded by Jamie Gair in 2000.  The firm started as a one man, seasonal tax services operation in the Peninsula Mall.

In time, Jamie began to add aditional services became a year round operation.  By 2003, he was an injured workers advocate, representing clients at WHSCC and CPP tribunals.  The following year, he became an Certified Credit Counselor, and the firm became a  satellite office for Janes and Noseworthy Ltd, a licenced bankruptcy Trustee in St. John's.  Later, the firm added a payroll services division, "Peninsula Payroll Services".  

In 2014, Jamie became a Financial Advisor with IG Wealth Management (formerly Investors Group)., offering a full suite of financial services including RRSPs, RDSPs, TFSAs, and  Life and Critical Illness Insurance.  Since that time, his primary focus has been assisting individuals approaching retirement with a financial plan to maximize their entitlement to government benefits while minimizing their tax burden.  

Meanwhile, Common Cents Consulting Ltd. has continued to grow and attract a team of highly skilled professionals with well over 100 years combined experience in income tax and accounting!

Jamie and his team of highly skilled professionals have always held to one basic core principle - treat every client the same way we would want to be treated ourselves.  That means that every tax return we prepare, we prepare it as if it were our very own tax return; every piece of financial advice we give to our clients, is what we would want to hear in the same situation.

We are very proud of the solid reputation that we have built in our community and look forward to serving you for many years to come!
