Members/firms may be exempt from filing an Accountant’s Report (TA-5 or TA-5R) for a particular year if approval has been received from the Law Society of Saskatchewan. Exemption status is determined on an annual basis.
Members/firms not receiving a written exemption from filing an Accountant’s Report for a particular year are required to file either a TA-5 or TA-5R. The TA-5 is selected for completion for firms based on predetermined criteria (i.e. number of issues and complaints in previous years). The TA-5R is selected on a random basis for firms that would be otherwise exempt. The TA-5R is also required to be completed for each of the first two years that a firm is practicing and in the year in which a firm terminates.
The Accountant’s Report must be filed within 3 months of the member/firm fiscal year end or termination of practice.
