What Happens If You File Taxes Late In 2023 12

Claiming Your GST Refunds

While it’s challenging to find any tax enjoyable, the business community holds a special regard for the GST/HST because of its role in fostering exports and providing tax exemptions on significant asset purchases. 


Numerous factors might put your business in a net refund position, including:


  • Accumulating inventory during the off-season 


  • Exporting goods or even services to customers outside of Canada


  • Operating as a fish processing plant, grocery store, or farmer


If this sounds like you, it’s highly likely you qualify for these benefits. If you want a tax consultant in Vancouver who’s familiar with these processes, I can assist you in claiming your GST refund.

Need Help From a Tax Consultant In Vancouver Regarding a CRA Tax Audit? 

Facing a CRA tax audit can be highly stressful for your business. Regardless of your bookkeeping, the costs involved can be significant. As a former CRA auditor and experienced tax consultant based in Vancouver, I possess the knowledge to guide you through the process.


Get Expert Assistance with Your CRA Tax Audit to:


Avoid Penalties & Predatory Practices:


“We are here from the government, and we are here to help.”  If you think the government is here to help you, the audit process may change your outlook. 


The executives who run CRA earn their bonuses based on (a) how well their programs do (how much money they bring in), and (b) ESG. This, in a nutshell, is the CRA executive’s mantra. Unfortunately, this leads to predatory audit techniques, which I will cover in another blog for someday.


That’s why having a reliable tax consultant in Vancouver on your side is essential, to anticipate these predatory tactics in order to prevent them or at least identify and react to them when they happen.

Protect Yourself from Auditor Errors:


While most auditors are reasonable, they do make mistakes. We find them and get the problem dealt with at the earliest possible opportunity in the audit. 


Stay Focused on Business as Usual:


Dealing with auditors and their inquiries is the last thing you want as a business owner. Partnering with a dependable tax consultant in Vancouver ensures effective communication and a smooth process.
