Our Philosophy


We believe in the value of relationships. We view every client relationship like a partnership, and truly believe that our firm success is a result of our client’s achievements. Our partners provide “hands on” personalized, quality service, and are supported by well-trained and technically qualified staff.

 We are committed to providing close, personal attention to our clients. We take pride in giving the client the assurance that the assistance they receive comes from years of advanced training, technical experience and financial expertise. Our continual investment of time and resources in professional continuing education, state-of-the-art computer technology and extensive business relationships is indicative of our commitment to excellence.


Entrepreneurial Focus

Entrepreneurs can count on Kent & Duffett to be on their side. In our dedication to providing creative advice and professional services at reasonable cost, we have earned a reputation for quality. 

As a mid-sized firm we are perfectly positioned within the marketplace to meet virtually any client's need: big enough to have specialists and the necessary resources in-house, but small enough that we maintain a prevailing personal concern for our clients. While our size is an asset, we believe we are defined by our client-focused values.



Tax is an issue of concern to every entrepreneur in every business. Kent & Duffett has a proactive approach to tax minimization that is creative and effective without being unnecessarily aggressive. The firm handles ordinary tax functions including compliance, filings, dealing with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and other routine tasks. We also offer seasoned expertise in more sophisticated tax-related transactions and tax strategies such as selling a business, reorganizing business structure and ownership, estate and succession planning.

Regular newsletters acquaint our clients with income tax and legislative changes, and planning opportunities. Our personnel monitor court cases, Finance Department and Canada Revenue Agency announcements, tax publications and commentaries, Interpretation and Information Bulletins, Advance Income Tax Rulings, Technical Interpretations, and Sales and Commodity Tax releases.
