SKL has been helping clients with their cross-border tax issues for over 40 years. Steve Katz, now retired from SKL, founded the firm after earning his LLM at NYU specializing in US tax law, and working at Dewey Ballantine – a pre-eminent Wall Street law firm. Eventually, Steve left New York and moved across the continent to Vancouver to start out on his own.

Steve was one of the first tax professionals in Canada to work on cross-border tax issues. Most of us have worked in cross-border tax for over 10 years. Some of us have worked at bigger international law or accounting firms, and we’ve chosen to bring our expertise to the family-like environment that Steve has created. You can learn more about us by exploring the biographies on the right-hand side of the page.

What makes SKL truly unique is our approach. We make our clients happy. They tell their friends. We’ve worked this way for forty years. Along the way, we’ve built lasting, decades-long relationships with our clients. It’s what has allowed us grow from a one-person storefront on West 4th Avenue in Vancouver into one of Canada’s leading cross-border tax advisory firms.

We offer a comfortable atmosphere and aim to put our clients at ease, regardless of their situation. We love what we do, we love where we work, and we believe that this passion allows us to provide the best possible experience for our clients.
