AvanTax eForms Versions


AvanTax eForms is available in four Windows versions (Lite, Basic, Standard and Enterprise), providing a range of features that will satisfy the requirements of any firm; regardless of its size. Throughout this manual, features that are available only on specific versions of eForms will be appropriately noted. Forms available are dependant on the version of eForms that has been installed; refer to About eForms for a list of forms available in each version.


Refer to the eForms Comparison Chart on our website for a full list of features present in each version of AvanTax eForms.


AvanTax eForms Lite

eForms Lite is our entry level package, designed for organizations processing a small number of returns for a limited number of recipients. Returns can be prepared for up to 5 companies, with a maximum of 25 slips of each type (T4, T4A, T5, Relevé 1 & Relevé 3) for each company.


AvanTax eForms Basic

eForms Basic is a good solution for the needs of larger firms not requiring the features of eForms Standard but wanting more functionality than is available in eForms Lite. Unlimited in the number of returns that can be manually entered and processed, eForms Basic can be used to prepare returns for organizations or any size with a minimum of fuss and bother.


AvanTax eForms Standard

Our most popular package, eForms Standard includes all the features of eForms Basic and increases flexibility by adding: batch electronic filing; multi-user networking; data import and partnership forms. eForms Standard is used by more firms across North America than any other eForms version.


AvanTax eForms Enterprise

eForms Enterprise has been designed to meet the data entry, reporting and management needs of even the largest organizations. With the ability to email slips to individuals, enhanced reporting and forensic analysis capabilities, eForms Enterprise is THE tool of choice for professionals across Canada.


At any time during the 2018 tax season you can upgrade or downgrade to a eForms version that better meets your needs; you will be invoiced or refunded for any difference in the cost of the software. Databases are fully interchangeable between eForms Basic, Standard and Enterprise. If you are moving up or down to eForms Lite, ELM's technicians can import the databases for you (a modest fee may be charged).
