When filing your clients’ Canadian taxes, it’s crucial to use tools that ensure the preparation and filing processes go smoothly. In filing these forms, you’ll need to inevitably collect and enter in sensitive personal and business information from your clients. Cybercriminals are increasingly targeting firms for this information to commit cybercrime and are aggressively going after accounting firms for this data. Firms that fail to properly protect this data could face sanctions PIPEDA and applicable Canadian provincial laws.
Abacus Private Cloud can help you avoid this through our easy-to-implement encrypted cloud hosting platform. Our Private Cloud accounts comply with ePHI and HIPAA protocols, and are designed to help you securely install Cantax T2 and T2 Plus, run them alongside complementary apps, and access sensitive client data anywhere from any authorized device. This allows you to manage your clients’ corporate returns on the go while enjoying industry-vetted safeguards such as:
