Personal + Self-Employed

Taxation represents by far the largest single item in the average Canadian’s budget. Even those in the middle tax bracket typically pay over 35 cents of every dollar earned in taxes of one kind or another. Let us help make sure you don’t pay more tax than you need to!

We’ll help you use all of the tax planning opportunities available to you, prepare your paperwork accurately and file on time.

We work to find tax planning opportunities for you. We’ll assess your financial matters from a tax perspective, and we’ll advise you of the updates and changes you need to know about.

 

And as your circumstances change throughout the year, don’t be afraid to pick up the phone and talk to one of our tax professionals. Don’t wait until tax time – the earlier in the year you act, the more options you’ll have at your disposal.

Representation on CRA audits

While the Income Tax Act is written in black and white, many audit issues are not necessarily clear‐cut. When you involve us in your tax planning or tax return process, you reduce your likelihood of a tax audit and can increase the opportunity for a positive outcome if you do get audited.

 

Once an audit is in process, having our professionals on your side can serve to reduce tensions and encourage a reasonable exchange with CRA officials.

Sales tax and other tax compliance and planning

Many businesses are required to collect and remit GST/HST and, in some cases, PST and the rules can be complicated. We can help you determine if you are subject to GST/HST or PST, how the rules apply to your business, how to address the tax implications of unusual transactions and help with compliance.
