Business Advisors, Tax, Accounting, and Assurance Services


Hamilton's "Go To" CA Firm

Having served Hamilton, Burlington, and the surrounding area of southern Ontario since the 1950's, Hoecht Galvin Kai has many clients across Canada and the United States.

We are likely helping many of your friends and neighbours with their business advisory, taxation, financial reporting, disclosure, wealth management, and assurance concerns.

We are big enough to handle most "challenges", but small enough that all of our clients get direct partner contact.

Qualified USA CPA Filings

Canadians:  the IRS does want your money.  They have no "Taxpayer Bill of Rights" and no "Fairness" process similar to or the equivalent of Canada Revenue Agency's.  Do you own and rent out property in the USA?  Are you a US citizen or green-card holder?  If these situations apply to you and even though you live in Canada, you do have to file a tax return with the IRS annually.  Hoecht Galvin Kai has one of the area's few CPA's that can handle both your Canadian and USA tax reporting obligations.  If you have a Canadian or US tax concern, please contact Bill Kai.

Charities, Not For Profits, and Condo Associations

We serve many of the area's most prominent organizations.  The regulatory, reporting, and assurance environment has changed substantially for these organizations in recent years.  If you are in this business you know that the way things used to be is no longer good enough.  Ask around: we let our reputation speak for itself.  If you view your CA firm as your compliance and assurance partner, we are the firm for you.  To speak to one of our partners about your needs in this area, please contact Tim Galvin.


Family-Owned Businesses, Trusts, Estate-Freezes, Business Succession Plans

Legitimate family income-splitting opportunities, succession issues, intergenerational wealth transfers, advisory services and execution are all areas where Hoecht Galvin Kai has extensive experience in helping you tax efficiently achieve your goals.

All potential new clients receive a free one hour consultation with one of our partners.  We do these by appointment only.  To schedule your free appointment, please click here.


"I about had a heart attack when Revenue Canada assessed me $350,000.  I took the Notice of Assessment to Rick who immediately got involved and sorted it out."

"I thought personal service was dead in the age of the Internet, but not at Hoecht Galvin Kai.  Their partners always take the time to listen to me, and I sleep easier knowing they understand my needs."
