OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19 (Last updated January 7th, 2021)

To our valued clients,

For the health and safety of our clients, staff, and families, we have made the difficult decision to work remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is in our best interests to do our part to reduce the spread of this virus and limit our interactions with the public. Due to the nature of COVID-19, and the ongoing encouragement from our government to practice social distancing, we will not be taking face-to-face meetings at this time. Rest assured, we are still available to our clients via Skype and telephone meetings, and will continue to serve you during this time. In addition, we are encouraging all clients to pay invoices via E-transfer when possible to do so. Please contact your accountant for electronic payment information. 

We are keeping updated on all tax deadlines and will update our website should any changes to the tax deadline in 2021 be announced by Canada Revenue Agency.

Some additional tips and recommendations to help you during this time:

-If you are currently using paper statements, speak with your bank or login to your online banking to switch to electronic statements. This way you can send your accountant statements electronically.

-Continue to monitor the government websites to remain up to date on any official changes or statements regarding deadlines, regulations, etc.

-The Government of Canada has put in place a number of measures to provide assistance to Canadians during this time. Look into applicable financial aids and consult your accountant to see what may apply to you. 

-Call your insurance companies to see if you can utilize any of your policies at this time such as business interruption insurance, or overhead insurance.

-Speak to your banks, landlords, and creditors about delaying your payments.

Lastly, we just want to take the time to say how much we appreciate your continued business and understanding during this time. We deeply care about the well-being of our clients. When events of this magnitude occur, we would like to remind everyone that the health and safety of you and your loved ones comes first.  We will be here for you every step of the way, to help you resume your business and get back on track.

Warmest regards,
