WHAT ARE YOU PERSONALLY MOST PROUD OF? My family and the success of the Ottawa office. WHAT DO YOU DO TO RELAX WHEN YOU'RE NOT WORKING? Golf - although this is sometimes not so relaxing.- Michael B. McCrann

Michael McCrann joined Crowe BGK in 2005, bringing with him a valuable network of contacts and a range of professional skills. His thirty years of experience includes acting as an advisor to privately owned and not-for-profit enterprises. His skills have often made him a de facto CFO of his clients’ companies, and his talents encompass staff coaching and management of firm operations. Michael’s background is in assurance, personal and corporate taxation, mergers and acquisitions, finance, recruiting and management consulting. He previously spent eight years at Klumak Herer McCrann in Ottawa, where he provided strategic business insights and advisory services, quantified and qualified complex audit and taxation matters, and counseled on the management of risk.

Michael is an expert at assessing the proper value of a company under different scenarios such as liquidation, going concern, and underlying tangible assets. He has assisted many client enterprises to prepare cash flow and business plans to allow for controlled and sustainable growth. Leveraging his personal professional network, he has helped many enterprises establish long-term banking relationships. For companies in a wide spectrum of industries, Michael has designed organizational structures to allow for the creditor proofing of company assets, income splitting amongst relevant family members, and tax minimization upon sale of the company or transition to the next generation.

In relation to Scientific Research and Experimental Development Credits on both the federal and provincial levels, Michael has developed valuable expertise. To help his clients deal with government assistance programs, he has prepared detailed financial analyses to support applications for government funding.
