Hello,

I am reaching out to all Crowe BGK clients during these times of uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic. I wish for you all to remain safe and healthy as we personally and professionally try to adapt our lives and businesses to ride through this crisis.

We wanted to update you on a few things to ensure you have the most up to date information given the everchanging government measures.

As it stands today:

  • Accounting firms are deemed as essential services and we are open. Crowe BGK continues to offer the exact same services; however, to respect social distancing, meetings must be conducted via video/audio conferencing and we cannot send our staff to your premises, they will continue to serve you remotely.
  • We prefer electronic document transfers to deliveries/drop offs. If you are not already registered to our secure file transfer system, ShareFile, please send an email to c.duchesne@crowebgk.com with the comment sign me up for ShareFile and indicate the name of your contact at Crowe BGK.
  • While both the Federal and Quebec Governments have extended the personal tax deadlines to June 01, 2020 we strongly encourage you to strive to maintain the original deadline of April 30, 2020 and send us your documents as soon as possible.
  • For the safety of our staff we have 90% of our staff working in the safety and comfort of their homes. For the remaining staff working from our offices we have many measures in place to assist in maintaining a safe environment; including hospital-style disinfecting of our offices on a regular basis.

Our partners remain available to continue to provide our clients the service you are accustomed to and to guide you through these turbulent times as you need to make unexpected business decisions to offset the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. For most companies, as well as individuals, properly managing cashflow is a significant challenge, we remain available to advise you. Additionally, we have created a special section on our website COVID-19 to stay abreast of the latest updates/changes to the government measures in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Stay safe and healthy,

Brian Kreisman
