We are a specialized Canadian tax law firm with 30 years of experience and have seen it all, so our experience tells us that nothing creates as much fear, confusion and stress as a tax audit. Starting from business owners who contact us less than one week before a scheduled income tax trial to professional accountants who call us at the first sign of a Canada Revenue Agency CRA audit and retain our tax help from the start, our best Canadian tax lawyers have always been the first choice of every Canadian taxpayer. Every successful, or unsuccessful, owner of a small- or medium-sized enterprise SME will at some point face a call from a Canada Revenue Agency tax auditor and the key to survive such a tax audit is to engage the right Canadian tax professionals. A good professional accountant will ensure that your tax returns are filed on time with complete accuracy, will deduct every expense you are entitled to and will respond to tax enquiries on a timely basis and without missing the deadline. Many business and personal clients come to us when their existing accountant has mishandled their tax affairs, our best Canadian tax lawyers take charge of the situation immediately, start dealing with CRA, and suggest a change of accountant forthwith. The second secret is to hire a professional Canadian tax advisor as soon as CRA contacts you.

Personal audits can include the audit of your previously claimed principal residence exemption for a property that you recently sold. An audit can also include a determination of whether the income you earned from the sale of your properties should be taxed as business income or capital gains. A Pre-Assessment Review is akin to a mini audit, where the CRA requests receipts and submissions to substantiate what the individual has claimed. A typical audit will look at records going back years, unless there is a suspicion of fraud or gross negligence, in which case the CRA will go back as far as it needs to carry out an audit. The onus, however, is on the CRA to prove gross negligence or fraud.
