At the audit stage, we are able to work with you and/or your bookkeeper or accounting professional to help resolve CRA concerns before a reassessment occurs or to less any reassessment that would otherwise occur. Further, we are able to speak and advise you under solicitor-client privilege as to how to answer the CRA and what to provide them.
Objections & Appeal
Where no tax is in dispute, but you want to request a waiver of penalties and interest – we can work with you to make the request to the CRA. You are able to seek a waiver or reduction of penalties incurred in the last ten years, and you can seek a reduction or waiver of interest ten years back and going forward till you have paid off the tax debt. Please note that the CRA cannot waive taxes under taxpayer relief.
Tax Court Appeals
At the objection stage, we are able to represent you to establish all the mistakes made by the auditor and/or documents of facts not considered. We will obtain the internal CRA records for you, and then advise you on what is necessary to succeed.
If you have unfiled tax returns, made mistakes in previous tax years, or have failed to report offshore assets, we can work with you under the CRA’s Voluntary Disclosures Program (VDP) to resolve these problems.
Taxpayer Relief Request
From the filing of the Notice of Appeal conclusion of the hearing, we work to provide you the best possible resolution. Rather than being litigious, we try and work with the Department of Justice to reach the resolution you want.
Employee & Contractor
Prior to any CRA involvement, we can work with you to help structure contracts with workers to maximize the determination that CRA will find them to be independent contractors.
We also will represent you at CRA audits and objections to dispute the CRA’s determination that they were not independent contractors.
We will work with you and/or your accounting professional to review what has been done in your financial affairs to render our opinion as to the tax consequences.
Whether the CRA knows or doesn’t know about past mistakes, we can work with you to seek a court order to rectify those mistakes and avoid unplanned tax bills.
OUR TEAM WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU
If we can’t help you with what you need, we can certainly refer you to someone who can. Our clients include corporations of all sizes, municipalities, owner-managed businesses, as well as individuals.
