Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, we are taking some extra measures here at Leakey & Lewicki Ltd. to ensure the health and safety of our clients and staff.
We are remaining open for business; however, we ask that clients limit their visits to our office if possible and that you make an appointment before entering the office.
Following provincial health orders, everyone entering the office must wear a mask and sanitize their hands. We ask anyone who has returned from travel outside of Canada to follow government protocol and self-isolate for a 14-day period to minimize the risk of spread. In addition, anyone who is feeling ill, or is being investigated for a potential COVID-19 exposure, is asked to stay home and take advantage of the alternative arrangements presented below.
We encourage clients to submit documents to us electronically through our new client portal. If you are not yet registered for our portal, please contact us to request an invite. Should clients not be able to submit their documents electronically, please drop them off in our after-hours drop box in the front of our office. We will be emptying the drop box regularly during this time. Any clients requiring a meeting are asked to schedule an appointment or a phone call.
For signing Canadian tax documents, we can accept scanned and faxed signature pages. We are also able to accept electronic signatures through our client portal. Please note, you must be registered for the portal ahead of time. Unfortunately, all US tax returns require original signatures. We can arrange to mail you any US documents that require signature.
If the above drop-off or signing options are not available to you, please contact our office to make alternative arrangements.
Please be assured we are committed to ensuring the tax-filing deadlines for all our clients are met as well as protecting the health and safety of our clients and staff.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your understanding.
