The Audit
Anyone who receives a phone call or a letter from a CRA or QRA auditor will either draw a sharp breath or miss a heart beat. You don’t need to be dishonest to experience this anxious moment upon learning of an audit. Fiscal laws are complex, and no one can be a hundred percent sure of not having committed a potentially costly error.
The Voluntary Disclosures Program gives you a second chance to change a tax return you previously filed or to file a return that you should have filed. You can apply to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) or the Québec Revenue Agency (QRA) to ask for relief of prosecution and penalties.

Tax Experts and lawyers to solve tax problems


We are a tax law firm specialized in solving all manner of tax dispute. Our Tax Litigation group has extended experience in Québec and Canada tax matters. Our experts have experience and academic backgrounds from many fields (law, accounting, finance, business, government). Our goal is to provide highly professional and efficient advice at affordable costs.

When the Canada or Québec Revenue Agency gives you notification that an audit is coming, it is normal to be worried. Their auditors are specialists, and notwithstanding the claim to only check that everything is in order, they must generate income for the government. They are proficient with accounting and technical aspects of complex laws and regulations, better than most taxpayers.

The auditors’ job is legitimate as Canada's tax system is based on self-assessment. This means that individuals voluntarily complete an income tax return to report their annual income and claim all deductions or credits that apply to their situation. While, it is legitimate and normal to conduct audits, the goal of an audit is a reassessment. The tax authorities affect resources to audits not for the sake of it. They endeavour it to be profitable.

At the audit’s stage or at the earlier step of a letter for information, you are well advised to collaborate instead of stonewalling which may spur a negative reaction. Nevertheless, the laws and regulations regarding tax matters are often arcane to most people, even professionals. It is sound practice to avoid mistakes when answering requests from the tax authorities.

We represent businesses of all size and individuals at every level and in every manner of tax dispute. The Canada and Québec Revenue Agency do attack a growing number of operations, and, in some instances, will grossly assess taxpayers for ridiculous amounts.

As experts specialized with audits, we can support you with a rigorous approach and credible reputation. Our team of experts and lawyers act honestly on behalf of clients, but we act forcefully. Tax authorities pay attention to credible representatives.

It is preferable for us to be involved as soon as possible. We can support your other professionals. The important thing is to the right thing at the right moment knowingly. That’s exactly what we offer.
