The professional services Firm is the first in the country to launch an iPad mobile app incorporating a tax calculator

MONTRÉAL, March 15, 2012 – Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton officially launched its Tax Planning Guide 2011-2012 today. The 28th edition of this free, unique and versatile tool provides up-to-date personal tax information.

Jean Gauthier, Partner and National Tax Director stated, “The Tax Planning Guide has always been an innovative guide and reference that provides strategic information as well as tips, tables and tax information for other provinces.” The Tax Planning Guide 2011-2012 is available online, at www.taxplanningguide.ca, as well as on iTunes (http://bit.ly/planningguide2012) as an iPhone, iPod Touch and, for the first time this year, iPad app.

“We are innovating again this year,” Jean Gauthier continued. “The Tax Planning Guide iPad app now offers a handy and easy-to-use simulator for Quebec taxpayers. We have a very simple objective: make a tool available for anyone who wants it, that will help with tax planning and avoid nasty surprises. The tax calculator is a versatile, personalized tool that uses the individual’s financial profile to determine his or her tax rate.”

The Tax Planning Guide’s electronic versions were such a success that Grant Thornton International Ltd has followed suit by offering the new World in Figures iPad app in association with the prestigious “The Economist” magazine.
