Our team members take the time to understand your unique needs and are committed to offering personalized accounting, wealth management and human resources solutions.

At Ford Keast LLP we do more than just crunch numbers. Our firm provides a full range of professional accounting, assurance, taxation, wealth management, human resource and business advisory services for individuals and business owners.

Founded in 1929 as Foote & Rafuse, Ford Keast is one of the oldest accounting firms in London, Ontario and area.

Our current team includes 9 partners, 24 professional staff members, and an administrative team of 4. This low staff-to- partner ratio and our long-standing history of low staff turnover reflects our philosophy of maintaining a close working relationship between Ford Keast and our valued clients.

Our firm has always taken great pride in being innovative and a leader with respect to the changing accounting and tax environment.

Today Ford Keast provides a full range of services including: Auditing, Reviews, Accounting, Taxation and other Business Advisory Services. Our “Bringing Solutions Together” approach also includes Wealth Management and Human Resource Consulting.

The year 2015 was an exciting time of growth at Ford Keast.

We merged with Gordon Hardcastle Chartered Accountants and welcomed a new group of staff and clients to the Ford Keast family, launched Ford Keast Human Resources to offer a variety of new solutions to our clients, and completed a major addition to our office building.

The partners and staff at Ford Keast are proud of our firm’s rich history, and we look forward to what the future brings. We invite you to contact us to learn more about how our “Bringing Solutions Together” approach can help you grow your wealth.
