Indirect Tax Advice

What I Do

I have been helping clients address their Canadian sales tax issues for more than 17 years.  I advise with respect to the application of GST/HST and other sales taxes on a wide variety of operations and real estate transactions. I also defend clients facing audits by government agencies like the CRA.

I have witnessed tax reassessments in the millions of dollars because organizations did not know how to apply tax legislation.  I have also successfully filed refund claims in the millions of dollars for clients who did not understand all of the tax credits available to them.

Sales Tax Advice

Canadian sales taxes such as the Goods and Services Tax / Harmonized Sales Tax,  Quebec Sales Tax as well as a wide array of Tobacco, Alcohol, Fuel and Excise Taxes are tremendously complicated areas of the law. I help organizations remain compliant with their sales tax obligations so they are not hit with an unexpected tax bill.

Recovery of Over-Paid Taxes

I believe every organization should pay their fair share of taxes, but not one penny more!  Let me help you determine if you have over-paid taxes, or missed opportunities to claim sales tax credits on your previously filed tax returns.

Government Audit Defense

Have you been contacted by a government tax auditor?  Don’t know where to start?   I can represent you during the audit so you don’t have to face the tax authorities on your own.
