Voluntary Disclosure

Second chances don’t often happen in life.  Have you failed to report income, overstated your expenses, or were you unaware that you were required to disclose foreign assets?

Do you have a tax debt that seems impossible to pay off due to the high interest rates and penalties imposed by the CRA?  Did you realize that both interest and penalties are discretionary charges?

Are you unable to pay your bills or operate your business due to your bank account being frozen by the CRA? Having difficulty refinancing your home because the CRA has a lien on your property?

If the tax auditor believes that a tax return was filed incorrectly or contained inaccurate information, it is likely that the taxpayer will be reassessed by the Canada Revenue Agency.
