The Howatt Group has provided me the accounting fire power I needed to bring my business needs to the next level. As a busy clinician, I have appreciated their attention to detail and their ability to bring clarity to my financial planning. I especially appreciate the ability to get prompt, professional and courteous replies to my enquiries and their ability to easily engage and liaise with other members of my financial team. The net effect is that I have great confidence in their team and services which gives me significant peace of mind, allowing me to concentrate on my skill set.

Tony Howatt has been working with Cyclesmith for longer then I can remember! As our business has grown over the past 30 years, he has grown the Howatt Group, and has always treated us like family. It has been refreshing to recently have his son, Andrew Howatt, help in our needs, as its truly a family approach to our business. The Howatt Group has a great team of professionals ready to help with all your needs and have always provided excellent advisement and services to us. What’s even better is the Howatt Group is a locally owned and operated business!
Owner, Cyclesmith Inc.
We’ve had the pleasure of working with Howatt Group since 1988, when we started our first restaurant in Halifax. Tony Howatt’s guidance and commitment to our business was a major factor in our success – helping us with projections, taxes – both personal and corporate – always available to call and always providing us with sage and timely advice. Over the years as we continued to expand our company, Tony worked with us at every step, helping us navigate the worlds of banking and financing for the restaurant sector…no easy feat! After almost 30 years, Tony was instrumental in our succession planning and ultimately helped prepare us for the sale of our companies. Tony is now currently working with the new owners to help them continue the success of their company. Tony has always gone above and beyond for us. We feel very fortunate to have worked with him in the past, and will continue to do so in the future.
