What triggers a GST/HST audit? Many audits arise from non-compliant returns, and as a result of the methods the CRA’s uses to select returns for audit.
If you have been unlucky enough to receive an assessment of a post-audit letter, then the audit process has already begun. Usually, you must answer the auditor’s letter within one month, and objections must typically be made within 90 days from the day you were assessed.
Do you have unfiled tax returns? We understand life can be busy, but under Canadian law it is illegal not to file or pay your taxes. We can keep you out of trouble with the CRA.
There are many things to consider when running a business. A concrete strategy for your taxes should be one of them. We can help you avoid expensive repercussions, give you a competitive, and keep you informed about the regulations that affect you.
The net worth assessment audit method relies on the theory that when a taxpayer has income in a year, they can either invest it or spend it. When an auditor adds up all non-deductible expenditures to the taxpayer’s net-worth and compare the net-worth at the start and the end of the tax year, an increase in net-worth can be deemed taxable income.
Because the CRA has the benefit of special laws concerning unpaid taxes, owing money to them presents a different set of problems than owing money to an ordinary creditor.
Tax avoidance is legal. Taxpayers in Canada have the right to plan their affairs in any legal way so as to reduce the amount of tax they pay. It is tax evasion that is illegal.
The CRA’s power to collect taxes dwarf those of your other creditors. You have to be aware of the risks and be able to assert your rights.
A tax audit can be a frightening experience. If you are audited by the CRA, you risk being found guilty of tax evasion.

“I hired Sam Faris to fix my books and records and to amend corporate and personal tax returns for a 4 year period. When I was audited by CRA, I discovered that my old accountant was not competent and had made many errors. CRA honoured the amended returns filed by Sam. I even received a tax refund.”
“I was assessed significant amounts by the CRA on a net-worth assessment. I started looking for a good accountant to challenge this for me. I was told that this needed someone with unique and strong accounting knowledge. A business partner referred me to Faris CPA. During Sam’s work on my file, he and his team made it clear that they were competent and efficient. Thanks to Sam’s help, I was successful. My original assessment of 94K was reduced to nothing.”
“I was referred to Sam by one of Canada’s top tax law firms, Rotfleisch and Samulovitch. I explained my tax issued with the CRA to Sam over the phone and he gave me free advice of what can be done to solve my problem. Based on the information Sam provided, I decided to hire him to deal with the matter. Sam and his team were hand on and on top of things. They gave me a prompt solution that worked for me and was accepted by the CRA. After this experience, I hired Sam to be a controller for my business. I didn’t want to worry about my accounting and tax issues again, and with Sam I know I don’t have to.”
“I engaged Sam Faris and his team to help deal with my unreported offshore portfolio and income. Sam’s skillful submission got me full relief on penalties and interest, and the submission was approved as filed. The entire exercise was efficient and effective. Based on my dealings with Sam, I’ve decided to continue our relationship and have Sam prepare annual tax filings for myself and my wife.”
