About H&R Block

In 1964, H&R Block opened the doors to its first franchised operation in Canada, paving the way for a big, bold and inspiring future. Over the years, we've continued to expand and have become Canada's leading tax preparation firm. From fast and accurate tax preparation services to accounting support, our innovative solutions and services help keep more money in your pocket.

The Early Years

Over 50 years ago, brothers Henry and Richard Bloch founded H&R Block. The pair began working together in the late 1940s, operating the United Business Company, which provided bookkeeping services to small businesses in Kansas City, Missouri.

The brothers also offered individual income tax return preparation to the executives of their client companies. When word of this service spread, they were preparing more and more individual tax returns for more and more clients. With the brothers recognizing their tax preparation services as a sound business venture, H&R Block Inc. was formed in 1955, with Henry as president and chief executive officer and Richard as chairman of the board.
