TAF filing form now automated

The Trust Administration Fee filing form has been automated so firms can create an online invoice each quarter.

This process replaces the previous “Filing Form” for the Trust Administration Fee that many firms printed and completed by hand.

To access the new form, use the “Log In” feature on the right side of the Law Society’s website, or use the “Log In” link in the Trust Accounting forms section of the site (see Publications and Forms – Forms). You will be asked for your firm’s TAF filing ID and postal code to log in.

Once you have accessed the online form, enter the number of trust transactions, separating real estate matters from other matters, and the form will automatically calculate the amount owing. The form must then be printed and submitted, along with your firm’s payment, to the Law Society.

All firms are expected to be filing in this manner by January 2008.

If you have questions about the new procedure, contact the Trust Assurance Department at 604-697-5810 or trustaccounting@lsbc.org.
