Ernst & Young Canada Launches EY Online Advisor

[Toronto, CANADA] Ernst & Young has unveiled a new service to connect with clients seeking tax advice with the launch of EY Online Advisor in Canada.

EY Online Advisor is a service for clients looking for answers to relatively straightforward tax questions.

For a capped fee, an Ernst & Young subject-matter specialist researches, analyzes, and prepares a written response to tax questions submitted in a secure environment over the Internet.

There are two tiers of response -- standard service of three to four business days or express service of one or two days.

EY Online Advisor is Ernst & Young's response to a steadily increasing demand from business to provide speed-to-market on a global basis.

"EY Online Advisor is one of the strongest examples of where Ernst & Young is heading as a professional services firm," said Michel Lanteigne, Managing Partner, Tax.

"Ernst & Young is recognized as the top professional services firm in Canada for tax advisory services. EY Online Advisor is a natural extension of our reputation for delivering fast, efficient and, above all, leading tax advice."

The project began as an internal system in June. "Now clients will have access to Ernst & Young's top tax specialists at the click of a mouse," said Linda Hyatt, Project Director.

EY Online Advisor is a global initiative of Ernst & Young. Canadian clients can receive online tax advice not only from Canadian tax specialists but also from tax specialists in 11 other countries around the world.
