  • Law firms will save on individual cheques, courier fees, waiting time, paper and more.

How does it work?

Once your law firm is registered with HRM for the On-line Tax Certificates (TC), each user will receive their own personal user login and password.

When user requests a TC an email will be sent to HRM to request the TC, an email will be sent to the user for confirmation for their file- an email will also be sent to the "accountant" email of the firm for accounting purposes.

At this time HRM cannot accept debit or credit card payments for this system. In order to register for this system the firm will be required to send in funds that will be deposited in an account in the firms name as a Tax Certificate Deposit Account.

A statement will be sent to you at the end of each month to verify the requests sent into HRM. The statement will have on it the Tax Certificate number and a detailed amount of what went into and out of your Tax Certificate deposit account.

If you would like more information on this system please email Tax Certificates and a PDF document can be sent to you with more detailed information on it.
