Audit Trail Schedules

In doing the compliance work, we also ensure that the best possible audit trails are set up at affordable cost to tax payers. The damage caused by inadequate audit trails is often not immediate and hence not realized. We are very conscious of setting up audit trails at all times while designing your accounting system, recording your transactions or preparing your returns. If a tax saving we claim for you is crucial or unclear, we search for credible literature to support the claim. We then save this printed material as a part of audit trails, because this published material would be most useful in defending you in an audit or an appeal that may come your way sometimes.

Audits and Appeals

We also defend tax payers by presenting their case properly in reviews, audits and appeals. In defending tax payers, we go all the way up to the Tax Court of Canada, if necessary. Besides tax assessments, tax payers are sometimes assessed substantial penalties and interest. We can get these reduced or eliminated by presenting your case effectively to appropriate departments.
