IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

May 4, 2020


As part of our firm’s response to the global pandemic, and recognizing that our most important priority is maintaining the health and safety of our people, our clients, and our community, we have taken steps to limit all physical interaction.

The large majority of our staff are working remotely from their homes using secure online systems. Our office is open between 10am and 12 noon Monday to Friday, but with substantially reduced numbers of people physically in the office. This allows us to maintain social distancing while continuing to operate and meet your professional service needs.

There have been extensions of deadlines to file tax returns and make tax payments.  However, we encourage our clients who have not already done so to assemble their tax information to the extent possible, particularly as some clients may have tax refunds receivable.  Please note that the extension of deadlines is as follows:

  • Personal tax returns that would have been due on April 30 are now due on June 1, 2020;
  • tax payments of any income tax owing by any taxpayer owing on or after March 18 can be delayed until September 30, 2020 without interest charges or penalties.

When you have your records ready to pass along to us:

  • Please use electronic transmission of documents, either email or our portal where possible.
  • If you have a small number of documents and access to a fax machine, our secure fax number is 905-549-6020.
  • If you need to physically drop off records, or send them by courier, we have a drop off space in our reception area to protect you and our staff.
  • We are not presently scheduling in-office meetings; please contact your Vine advisor to book a telephone call or virtual meeting.

Please feel free to email or call us to request a link to a personalized, secure folder on our portal file sharing system so that you can “drag and drop” your electronic documents into an online folder to transmit them to us securely, quickly, and easily.

We also understand that the Canada Revenue Agency has closed all or most of their physical locations. This means that we cannot send physical documents to them, but we can use electronic transmission to deliver most filings to them.

We wish you and your loved ones health and safety in these challenging times.

Transition Planning

Transition Planning

Small business is the backbone of the Canadian economy, but experts say that small business owners rarely pay enough attention to business transition planning. In fact, without a transition plan in place, many businesses close instead of being sold or passed on to the next generation.
