OUR CLIENTS SAID
Kaman and her team are highly knowledgeable and effective. I've searched a long time for a good cross-border accountant and have tried several before Kaman. She saved my butt when my previous accountant made a train wreck out of my returns (and they were a large accounting firm). Kaman is head and shoulders above all of them. — Alan C. - Vancouver
Kaman is simply everything you'd want in your accountant at tax time. She's smart, efficient, and reliable, a complete professional who understands U.S. and Canadian tax laws — so that we don't have to! Her staff are energetic and cheerful (like their boss) and are always a pleasure to work with. We are very happy to give Kaman Kwok, Inc. our highest recommendation.
— Karen P. - Vancouver
If you are one of the fortunate souls [sarcasm alert!!] who gets to file both Canadian and US tax returns and thus gets to deal with both the CRA and the IRS, you know only too well that 2 countries equals 3 countries worth of headaches. When you have to face off against both the CRA and the IRS, you want the very best people on your side. I sleep soundly now, knowing that Kaman Kwok has my back. — William M. - Vancouver
