One of the core functions of the EAC/ATC is to communicate directly with senior management of the CRA on behalf of members. As your conduit to the CRA, we meet regularly with senior managers of the CRA to discuss tax policy and administrative issues that affect all tax practitioners.
Over the years, the EAC/ATC has successfully lobbied for many changes that facilitate the operation of a tax practice. Tax practitioners are the front line administrators of Canadian tax policy, and we are recognized as the professional association that senior management of the CRA turn to for industry comment and feedback.
The EAC/ATC also negotiates member only discounts from premium product and service providers for professional development and practice management enhancement, improving your bottom line. Discounts are available on materials from the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA), the Tax Practitioners Tool Kit, very competitive rates from credit/debit card service provider Chase Paymentech and participating tax software developers.
Members also receive our IMPACT Newsletter (published 3 times a year), providing important updates on developments within the tax and EFile service industry.
The EAC/ATC is governed by a national 15 member Board of Directors elected by the membership of the EAC/ATC at the Annual General Meeting. Members of the Board of Directors serve renewable 3-year terms.
