The new technological tools will revolutionize the way businesses and the accounting world operate. Changes are already in motion. Are these new technologies a risk or an opportunity?

Emilio B. Imbriglio, President and CEO of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, sees the change as something positive, and shares, “Accountants will be rid of the routine tasks relating to compiling figures and be able to concentrate on tasks with more added value, such as interpreting figures, coaching and advising.”


High added value

As you will recall, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton launched several digital initiatives such as TAXO, Operio and Catallaxy in recent months.

According to Pier-Paul Belzil-Lacasse, Lead Senior Manager and Licensed Insolvency Trustee, “Under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act, bankruptcy doesn’t release you from the obligation to pay alimony. The same holds true for debts resulting from fraud, embezzlement or misrepresentation as well as court-ordered fines or penalties and student loans if the student has been out of school for less than seven years.”

Can you pay your suppliers using cryptocurrency? A young entrepreneur from Trois-Rivières thinks you can and plans to give it a try!

Virtual currency and mandatory reporting

Louis Roy, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Partner and Leader of the Catallaxy subsidiary stated, “Bitcoins are increasingly popular, because their value is constantly fluctuating. However, taxes are payable on every transaction. As a result, if a supplier agrees to be paid in bitcoins, he or she will have to report the gain or income and this is something very few people are aware of.”
