Please note our job is not simply moving the numbers from the forms you have filled to the tax returns; instead, we integrate the tax optimization and tax planning into the process as well as our effort to reduce the risk of your tax returns being audited by CRA.
After our accountants have worked on your tax return based on the information you provided, they will email you the PDF copy of the tax return draft.
There will be a phone or email discussion between you and our accountants to discuss the details of your tax filing.
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.
