The federal government has made significant investments in the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), both here in Canada and the Internal Revenue Service within the United States, that increase the number and size of tax audits and assessments. Canadian and U.S. businesses and high-net-worth individuals also face relatively ambiguous tax rules and a challenging and time-sensitive dispute resolution process.
It’s important to strategically manage your interactions with tax authorities in a way that adds value by avoiding disputes and effectively resolving disputed issues with full knowledge of the rules, internal government processes, and various methods of resolution.
Our strategy is to proactively prevent, efficiently manage and favourably resolve your tax disputes and audits throughout the world.
Our specialized team brings together former tax authority personnel, former federal finance and justice department employees; tax litigation lawyers and other tax; accounting and process experts as needed; supplemented by insights from our global network. The goal is to strategically manage all aspects of your interactions with tax authorities in the following three phases of the tax dispute life cycle.
Prevent: Are you “audit ready”?
Manage: How do you prepare for an audit?
Resolve: What are the possible paths for resolution?
