Tax Audits & Assessments
Tax audits and assessments are becoming more frequent in the area of commodity taxes. The financial consequences of an assessment can be significant for businesses and individuals. Unlike income taxes, once a GST/HST assessment is issued the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) can commence collections even if the person assessed files an objection. A vigorous audit defence is a critical opportunity to reduce or eliminate the amounts in issue.
We don’t flinch when it comes to defending our clients in audits. We use our knowledge of the law and CRA practices in taking a precise, assertive approach to resolving audits and assessments.
We routinely assist at all stages of tax disputes, whether during audit, filing notices of objection to assessments, or dealing with CRA collections. We also help other tax professionals resolve audits and assessments where legal issues are involved or where commodity tax expertise is required.
