Company History:

2005 - Officially opened for business
In 2005, Horseshoe Tax Services officially opened for business from a small 100 square foot leased office on Stanley Street in Brantford. 
Melissa came up with the name of the company based on her love of horses. The horseshoe used in the logo is an actual horseshoe that had previously been painted blue and used as a wedding decoration and was a gift from Vulcan Farrier Services, Kris Rathlou.

2006 - Bookkeeping
In 2006, Melissa began offering bookkeeping services for small businesses as well. The company name was changed to Horseshoe Tax & Bookkeeping Services.

2007 - HorseshoeTax.com website is born
In 2007, we launched our website. We created the website ourselves and continue to maintain it ourselves to the present day. This has allowed us to efficiently keep the website up to date at a very low cost. Our goal has been to provide visitors to our website with the information they are looking for in a clear and well organized manner.

2007 - Fee-only financial planning
As Horseshoe Tax grew, we realized that many of our clients were in need of financial planning services. One of their main complaints was that they were unable to find a financial planner who had their best interests in mind. Most financial planners only wanted to sell them mutual funds or insurance products. As a result,  in 2007, Horseshoe Tax began to fill a market niche by offering fee-only financial planning services.

2008 - Office expansion
In March, 2008, we expanded the office at Stanley Street to four times its original size.

2008 - Trademark
By 2008, Horseshoe Tax was growing so quickly that we came to the realization that we needed to protect our unique company name and logo to prevent its potential use by others. Consequently, on March 11, 2008, we filed an application for a trademark on our company name and logo. The trademark was registered on May 15, 2009.


2009 - Office expansion
In March, 2009, we knocked out another wall and expanded the office for a second time.

2010 - Office expansion
In May, 2010, we expanded for a third time and occupied the entire ground floor of the Stanley Street location.

2011 - Moved to Dalkeith Drive
By 2011, Horseshoe Tax & Bookkeeping Services had grown to be one of Brantford's leading companies offering income tax return preparation, bookkeeping for small businesses, and fee-only financial planning services. Having outgrown our Stanley Street location, we decided to purchase a property of our own in Brantford's prime business district. On April 11, 2011, we officially opened at our new location at 45 Dalkeith Drive, Unit 5.

2012 - Horseshoe Tax Gift Boutique & Awards
We received an Honourable Mention in the Brant News Reader's Choice Awards for best place to have your income tax return prepared. 
We also expanded our product offering by opening a horse-themed gift boutique within our business establishment. We currently carry the Breyer line of model horses as well as a unique selection of antique horse-themed metalware including pewter and brass items.
