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!

The longevity of the relationship speaks for itself, we consider the Howatt Group a valuable member of our team.
Howatt Group has been our accountants since our inception as incorporated consultants. They have a wealth of knowledge and experience managing physicians accounting affairs and have done nothing but serve us in an exemplary manner both routine and challenging affairs with CRA. As you may be aware two physicians and two corporations is complex but Tony and his team have made it simple for us. They also have a network of lawyers and financial advisors that have been serving us as well. If you would like a fair, honest and hardworking team to manage your accounting affairs I would recommend Tony and his team without hesitation.
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.
Howatt Group Chartered Professional Accountants have provided our suite of companies and trusts with professional accounting and assurance services for over 15 years. From the beginning of our relationship, Tony and his team have taken an in-depth interest in understanding how our business works and have always provided, not only accurate accounting/assurance services, but advice, we’ve found invaluable as our organization has grown. Howatt Group is a “best in class” accounting firm. I have recommended Howatt Group to friends and other business associates, and will continue to do so.
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.
