COVID 19 – social distancing measures at Gilmour Group CPA

During this trying time, we have reduced our contact with people to reduce the risk of transmission of the disease. Our bricks and mortar office is closed. We are taking appointments electronically. Paperwork can be scanned and sent to us securely or dropped physically at a dropbox outside our office door from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. from Monday to Thursday, and 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. on Friday. If the box is not there, do not leave your records outside our office.

Here is our guide on electronic communications tools.

We will probably be slower than normal responding to emails and messages as we are using remote tools.

Warm Regards (just not touching),

What We Do

We help our clients to save on corporate taxes and other government charges. It can be shortsighted to try to save tax today when a "big picture view" can save future taxes and other government charges such as CPP and WCB.

Equally as important as good planning is good execution. Setting up your systems to manage your tax always reduces overall taxes, penalties and other tax surprises.

Corporate Income Tax is our specialty. The biggest opportunities to save corporate taxes are in 1) smart structures, 2) income splitting, and 3) avoiding double taxation, especially in international transactions.
