Objective financial, tax, and estate advice

We believe advice should be exclusively advice: unbiased, objective, and not reliant on product sales, quotas, or incentives. The way we provide advice is through easy to understand examples and objective service, tailored to your circumstances and expectations. We just happen to provide financial advice.


Financial advice generally requires advice on taxes: income tax, GST, PST, HST, payroll tax, estate tax (probate fees), and the list goes on. Whether you are planning for retirement, buying a home, organizing your financial life, or starting a business, taxes impacts all of these decisions. Tax is at the core of Lamp Financial's practice.
