About eForms

FIRST TOPIC  BACK  NEXT TOPIC

Since its introduction as T4 TimeSaver in 1987, AvanTax eForms is used by thousands of Canadian businesses each year to reliably produce CRA and Revenu Québec information returns Originally written for MS-DOS in 1987, T4 TimeSaver was rewritten for Windows in 1997 and updated to use the .NET Framework (v. 2) in 2007. In 2011 T4 TimeSaver was renamed to AvanTax eForms to reflect its multiple forms capability and in 2015 eForms was updated to use the .NET Framework (v. 4).

 

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
