Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is proud to have been involved once again in the annual meetings of the Corporation des officiers municipaux agréés du Québec (COMAQ), which took place May 23 to 25, 2018 in Québec City.
As a leader in the municipal sector, the firm was there to contribute to these discussions on financial issues.
Providing accounting advice for the public sector
Our experts, Marc Legendre and Stéphane Landry, led a workshop on changes in accounting standards that could have a significant impact on the financial statements of municipalities.
With their in-depth knowledge of the new accounting standards of the CPA Canada Handbook – Accounting and the current projects of CPA Canada’s Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB), Marc and Stéphane explained the public sector standards that managers need to take into consideration. Several aspects were discussed, including:
- Accounting for restructuring transaction;
- Information to know about related parties;
- Accounting for asset retirement obligations.
GST and QST: key topics, year after year, at the COMAQ conference, for the past 25 years
Guylaine Dallaire, Tax Partner, dedicates most of her practice to the public, parapublic, government and real estate sectors. She uses this conference to meet her clients from all over the province. It’s an opportunity to review major developments in the past year affecting managers (treasurers, clerks and directors general). This information could relate to contracts, real estate transactions, regulatory standards and legislative changes.
