Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton and the CQFF join forces to promote tax training and information across Quebec
Montreal, June 22, 2021 – Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, a firm that employs many of Quebec’s leading taxation experts, is pleased to announce a partnership with the Centre québécois de formation en fiscalité (CQFF). This move will ensure the long-term viability of the institution, which every year provides training to more than 10,000 people working in the fields of taxation, accounting and financial planning.
The CQFF is dedicated to offering high-quality tax training and information, and has enjoyed exceptional success since it was established in 1992. Every year, its services reach thousands of accountants, financial planners, tax specialists, SME controllers, finance managers and other professionals who require a solid understanding of taxation issues.
“This alliance is a terrific opportunity to strengthen our service offering,” said Pascal Leclerc, a tax partner at Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton. “Our firm already has a dedicated tax research team that publishes thought-leading content. This alliance will significantly increase knowledge-sharing with the financial and taxation community. It will also enhance the professional development of our in-house experts and thereby enable them to provide added value to our clients.”
“The basis for this alliance is our shared commitment to accelerating and promoting knowledge-sharing, particularly in an era where tax policies and changing regulations could significantly alter our business environment,” said Yves Chartrand, CQFF founder and instructor. “We’re excited at the prospect of helping even more professionals advance their knowledge thanks to Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s broad network.”
The CQFF will be releasing its annual training calendar in the next few days and will maintain its independent approach, which is based on explaining the various administrative practices used by tax authorities, as well as simplifying information and sharing innovative strategies.
