COVID-19 Update

With the current developments in our community and around the world in connection with COVID-19 we would like to update you with the steps we are taking to keep our team safe.
 
Effective March 21st at 5pm we will be closing the offices to the public. Our team will be staying home we have plans in place to still ensure that essential services, such as payroll and records of employment are taken care of. Our plan is to re-open the offices on April 6th.
 
Personal tax returns, both Canadian and US, have extended deadlines. Be assured that our goal is to have your returns ready well in advance of these deadlines. The partners of the firm will continue to work towards any corporate tax or HST filings that are due on March 31st.
 
Any in office meetings that are scheduled during this time can either be moved to a telephone call, a video call, or can be rescheduled to occur on or after April 6th.
 
The partners of the firm will still be available to help our business clients navigate these incredibly difficult times even during our closure.
 
For anyone interested in sending their tax documentation to us during the closure, here are some secure file sharing options:
- Password protected documents sent to partners' email
- Our online portal
- Google Drive
- Dropbox
- One Drive
 
If you still would like to drop off your tax documents in person, the office will be open, for drop off only, weekend mornings from 9am to Noon.
 
We would be happy to receive your documents in any manner that is convenient to you
 
We hope that you understand our decision to do what we feel we can do to keep our team and our community safe. If you have any questions or comments, please let me know.
