To assist our clients to comply with legislation, this site incorporates many public TRA documents explaining the legislation and providing specific compliance information. Every effort has been made to ensure the contents of the publications found on this site are accurate. However, if any discrepancy should occur between the publications and governing legislation, the legislation takes precedence.
