Beware of Fraud / Scammers

The latest trick by the scammers is to spoof their phone numbers and make it look like the call came from my accounting office. The scammer then threatens you that the RCMP are on their way to your house to arrest you unless you pay the CRA (as they claim) a lump sum of money, DO NOT FALL FOR IT! The real phone number for the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) is 1-800-959-8281. Hang up on the scammers immediately, do not try to discuss anything with them. If you think you have a debt with the CRA call the number I just gave you not the number the scammers give you! Call your accountant, like me if you are still unsure about the call. Beware, do not trust them.


PLEASE READ UPDATE – from Charles A Mowat Public Accountant. Our Business will continue moving forward, and processing tax returns and all accounting related services. We ask for your patients with us, as we are working with a smaller work force at this time.
As you are all very aware this is a fast changing world these days, and I am modifying our business practices until further notice. I have Psoriatic Arthritis, and therefor have to take a medication that lowers my immune system severely. Due to these reasons, we will not have anyone entering our home and home office for now. All business can continue, as my phone line is always available, and with technology we can use emails and scanners to communicate and send documents back and forth. For those of you without scanners and prefer to leave document in my mailbox, that still works well too.
You can send me a pdf of all of your slips to me at, I will then process your tax return and send you a T183 signature form for you to sign and send back to us, along with a e-transfer for the invoice. I can then file your tax return and forward a pdf version of the tax return to you via email. If you wish to get a paper copy we can arrange to leave it in my mailbox for you to pick up.
I ask for your understanding and patients at this time. Please call if you have any questions. Office phone 306-978-2186.

Time for Trainings

Time to update my training again.  Every year I attend multiple training’s, in order to stay current and as knowledgeable as possible.  Last week it was time brush up on ways to save you as much tax dollars as possible.  This week Google is putting on a training.  It is always good to increase my communication skills.   There is always room for personal and professional growth.


Great Growth this Tax Season

T1 Tax Season is slowing down now, but wow, another great year of growth in our business.  As of February 1, 2019 we have been in business for 15 years so far and having incredible growth.  It is with great appreciation, that I thank you for referring your friends and family to our local business.  The majority of new clients were your friends and your family members.  It is great to get referrals of that kind, the best way to grow a business.

I always attend multiple training’s per year to make sure that we have the knowledge and expertise that is needed to prepare a diverse group of tax returns.  In an ever changing world, training is crucial to keeping up with all of the changes in tax laws and tax forms.  We appreciate you supporting a local business like ours.


14 Plus Years of Experience in your corner

This year has been another great year with a record number of successful happy clients.  I am so grateful, for all of your many referrals that you have given to your friends.  We have brought on a lot of new clients in the last few years, keeping us busy all year round.  With my many years of experience as an accountant combined with the many years that I worked in management positions, it gives me a diversity of experience that I can use to help in consulting for your business success.

My success is totally dependent on helping your business succeed to its fullest!

Referrals Appreciated

It has been another great year so far, thanks to all of you.  Your loyalty to a small local business like mine means so much to me.  Our business has grown because of the many referrals that you have given my business over the years. I strive to go out and get the training that I need to keep my knowledge base expanding so that I can represent you to the best of my ability.  Thank you for your dedication and loyalty.


Income Tax Deadline Approaching

It is that time of year again, where we have to face the Tax Stuff, as most people call it.  We are well under way with tax season, as over 1/2 of you have already came to see us and have already filed your tax returns, and got some nice refunds for some of you.  Please do not delay in bringing your information in to us, as the sooner the better when it comes to the April 30th deadline.

An Important note: If you sold your home (Principle Residence) make sure your accountant or more importantly the CRA  is notified on your 2017 Tax Return. Scary Fines from the Canada Revenue Agency if you sold your house in 2017 and do not report it on your 2017 Tax Return!!!

Usually not taxable, but MUST be reported!

2017 Year End

It is time to gather up all of your 2017 information, and get your bookkeeping up to date.  It is also a great time to start a new folder or envelope to start putting your 2018 information into as it arrives.  The past year was a great year, nice and busy, lots of referrals from great clients like you.  I greatly appreciate the referrals. Thank you.

GST Remittance

When you are doing your bookkeeping for your business, be sure to track your GST, and PST when applicable, in detail. When calculating your business GST, be sure to enter the amount of GST collected on your sales on the one line and the amount of your GST paid on purchases (ITC’s / Input Tax Credits) on the other line and calculate the difference and submit the difference to the CRA – Canada Revenue Agency.  If needed, call your accountant for details or hire an expert. Your business is too important!
