T5 Client Letters

We send cover letters/emails to our clients when we issue T5s. Most of our clients have only family member shareholders, but some have non family member shareholders as well. This letter adjusts for that, and for if we prepare their personal tax returns in house or not, if you add a couple of Custom Fields to the T5 module.
