About eForms

FIRST TOPIC  BACK  NEXT TOPIC

Since its introduction as T4 TimeSaver in 1988, AvanTax eForms has been used by thousands of Canadian businesses each year to reliably produce CRA and Revenu Québec information returns. eForms enables its users to easily enter or import data, process data for specific errors and submit paper and/or electronic returns.

 

Originally written for MS-DOS in 1988, T4 TimeSaver was rewritten for Windows in 1997 and subsequently updated to use the .NET framework (v. 2) in 2007. In 2011 T4 TimeSaver was rebranded to AvanTax eForms to better reflect its multiple forms capability. If you have need of one of our older versions, all eForms/T4 TimeSaver releases from 1997 onward are available from the downloads page on our website: www.AvanTax.ca/eForms

 

The AvanTax eForms development team is committed to providing software for producing Canadian information returns that is superior to any other system. With that in mind, eForms has been designed from the ground up to provide a solid foundation for ongoing product development and simplify the addition of new product features.

 

New features in the 2012 version of eForms include:

 

Updated user guide will support both French and English by the end of the summer
New forms added: 2012 Partnership Return
Links to training videos on our website are available at appropriate locations within eForms when an active Internet connection is discovered
