Darren Battersby

Darren obtained his designation as a Chartered Accountant in 1997 and has worked primarily in the entertainment, high tech and beverage industries with a variety of early stage and growing companies. He is the managing partner of Finance Matters.


Finance Matters is a different type of consulting firm.  We help early and growth stage companies bridge the gap between your public accountant and your bookkeeper. All three principals of Finance Matters are Chartered Accountants with years of "hands on" expertise in a wide variety of industries and sectors.

We are here to help companies who either do not need or cannot afford full time senior financial and accounting services. We provide the following services:

  • Part-time CFO or Controller services
  • Full-time or contract bookkeeping services
  • Special project or contract services
  • Financial Matters department reviews
  • A virtual financial department

Finance Matters is ideal for early stage companies with limited resources. This is most challenging phase and always requires experienced financial advice; but rarely are companies able to afford the skills needed to properly plan, model and finance the company.

Serving the Okanagan Valley and Vancouver Lower Mainland, we offer affordable, senior level accounting services specializing in managing early stage companies.
