What can we do for you?

Each case depends on its facts. In many cases, there was a genuine misunderstanding on the part of our clients as to whether, for example, payments from overseas should have been declared. In other cases, upon a review of our client’s situation, we may conclude that problems can be overcome by correctly claiming more deductions. As to the long term, our law firm specialises in legitimate tax and corporate structuring, involving onshore and offshore entities that, although fully compliant with Canadian tax law, will enable taxes to be minimised. There may be some cases in which we recommend that clients avail themselves of the CRA’s Tax Amnesty Scheme. In all cases, we will carefully review how the Federal Court order, obtained by the CRA against PayPal affects you and advise you as to how this order affects you, how you can become compliant in the future and how you can minimise taxes moving forward.
