Our Approach

I enjoy getting to know my clients and their particular business.  Each person is unique and so is their situation.  We all have different goals for our money and what we want to accomplish with it.  My goal is to help you spend less on taxes so that you can use your money to reach your own goals.

Our Story

My name is Gavin Haswell. I was born in England and moved to the United States at age 3 ½.  I lived in California until my wife and I decided to move our family to beautiful Fort Collins, Colorado.  My wife being a native of Colorado, knew it would be a wonderful place for our two young children to grow up. I also looked forward to the abundant business opportunities.

In my free time you can find me playing with my kids, at a playground, or playing my drums whenever I get the opportunity.

Business Background

I began my accountancy career at the ground level, working as a bookkeeper preparing monthly financial statements, payroll tax returns and sales tax returns.  Upon graduating from California State University, San Marcos with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (Accounting option), I became a CPA.  I also graduated from the University of San Diego School of Law and became a licensed CA attorney.  I am also licensed in Colorado as well.

For the last 25 years, I have primarily focused on income tax consultation and tax preparation.  I have worked with a wide range of clients and have prepared a variety of income tax returns: individual, partnership, corporate, gift, nonprofit and trust.
