  • Based on your feedback and questions, our accountants will update your tax return forms and re-send you the PDF for your further review.
  • Upon approval of both you and our accountants, we will email you the signature page to finalize your tax returns. Please refer to this page to check how to use your phone to sign on PDF files.
  • We will email you our service invoice and ask you kindly send us your e-transfer payment.
  • We will e-file your return to CRA once we have received your signatures and your payment to our services.
  • We will email you the tax filing receipt from CRA.

If you need to use our Excel template to do your bookkeeping, you will need to first download all bank transactions into a .csv spreadsheet, shown as below:

Next step is to copy the following 3 types of data

  1. Date
  2. Transaction description
  3. Amount

into the following Excel template we provide. You will need to simply provide the following information to the Excel:

  1. HST involved yes/no for this transaction
  2. Category of this transaction

Please be advised that using such a simple spreadsheet for enterprise bookkeeping is not recommended by any accounting regulations. Please use it at your own risk.
