How to use the webinar for a lunch and learn?

  1. How does our firm use TaxMentor’s monthly-recorded tax update webinar to facilitate a lunch and learn and earn verifiable PD hours?
    • If you are not currently a subscriber, sign up for a 30-day free trial to gain access to the website.

      *PD hours accumulate on paid subscriptions only. Expired or comp/trial subscriptions do not qualify for verifiable PD hours until payment is received.

    • Subscriber’s head to the TAXBRIEFS tab, click on the webinar link below the most recent month.
    • The video is broken up into chapters allowing you skip to the news item that are most important to you and your firm. We highlight the most important news item each month with an *, you can play the news items then pause and open up the floor to discussion. News items can be played, skipped, re-played and paused just like a traditional DVD.
    • You can print and make copies of the pdf newsletter for all members of your staff at no extra charge.
    • Keep attendance on a sign in sheet and report the time on the CPA website to earn PD credits for all in attendance.
    • There is no extra fee for copying the newsletter or group viewing of the webinar; one subscription per office is all you need. This offer does not apply to firms with multiple office locations – every separate location within the firm must maintain their own subscription.
  2. We use another monthly tax update service, why would we change?
    • Other services are far more expensive for the same application, TaxMentor does not charge for copying the newsletter or for multiple viewers of the webinar. While we only issue PD certificates for the registered subscriber, that does not prevent a firm from keeping their own PD attendance records. If you compare the news covered, only TaxMentor covers everything of importance in a month in the next months TaxBriefs Newsletter and Webinar. Comprehensive and timely – there is no better Owner-manager tax update service in Canada.
