Covid-19 Operations Announcement To Our Clients

Operations during Covid-19 Outbreak

During the current Covid-19 outbreak and declared pandemic our offices will continue to operate normally so long as conditions permit.  Our staff are taking precautions to keep any possible transmission risk as low as possible through best practices regarding cleaning, handwashing, and surface maintenance.

Clients are welcomed to bring their personal income tax paperwork to our offices as per normal procedures.

Clients may also submit paperwork to our offices electronically via email to contact@wgscma.ca

Clients may also fax paperwork to our offices at the following numbers:

Cannington: 705-432-8450

Orillia: 705-329-2571

 

Please note that one-on-one appointments with Walter Schummer to review tax returns or other matters are being deferred.  Clients are still welcomed to attend our offices to sign off on their personal taxes or other accounting and tax matters.  Staff at our offices will continue to review tax returns with clients on a summary basis.

Our office can also arrange to send required paperwork for signature via email or fax to our clients.  The documents can be returned in similar manner.  Payment can be arranged via telephone.  Hardcopy of tax packages may be picked up at a later time or we can mail to clients (mailing of returns may result in nominal extra charges or removal of some discounts).

Our offices have their hours posted online at our website www.wgscma.ca
