Join Us for our Fall 2021 Professional Development Seminar scheduled for October 22 & 23, 2020

RTaising the Bar

About The 2020 ATAP Fall Professional Development Seminar

Where better to spend your time this fall but in your best comfy chair to get educated on COVID-19 and how it is going to pan out in the next little while and to help prepare yourself.  Join us as we continue to "Raise the Bar" on your education.

With the 2019 tax season finally behind us, we're looking ahead to what will certainly be the most challenging tax season many members will face. With the overwhelming number of relief programs out there, it is not an easy task keeping track of them all, let alone their tax implications.

With that in mind, we have designed our 2020 Fall Professional Development Seminar - our first virtual seminar - around the COVID-19 relief programs.

We will examine what these programs mean for us, what they mean for our clients, and how we can best prepare for the audit activity that will be coming our way from the Canada Revenue Agency.

We will also explore new ways of managing our practices in an era of uncertainty where government-imposed restrictions may affect how we interact with our clients and staff. While this year could be seen as a series of crises, we like to think of it as bringing us new opportunities.

Can't attend our seminar live? No problem - the seminar will be recorded so that you can watch the presentations whenever you can fit them into your schedule.
