Second to none firm once it comes to accounting and tax issues with the CRA. I have tried to work with three professionals including a tax lawyer before approaching Sam Faris. Unlike Sam, they never met their promises. Sam met every single promise he made. His performance exceeded expectations. Don’t waste your money and time and hire Sam. He is super efficient, and highly knowledgeable with tax problems and will protect you from CRA with the least cost possible.

i can confidently say that Sam Faris is the best out there who can handle problems with the CRA. he helped me to resolve a complicated and massive audits with my companies and got me the best results. he did a perfect reorganization after and now feel i am well protected having him on board.
I approached Sam Faris as I had a complicated case with the CRA regarding my residency status. Sam has performed a detailed and in depth analysis and submitted his findings to the CRA. In conclusion, Sam was able to convince the CRA that I am not a resident and I did not have to file tax returns in Canada. Super happy with Sam service and of course with the outcome.

Sam Faris filed my many years of outstanding tax returns under the voluntary disclosure program. As a result, significant penalties were waived and more importantly the my many years of sleepless nights and living in fear are over now. Thank you Sam and I highly recommend him to family and friends.

Sam of Faris CPA is an expert with CRA issues. I have waisted significant amount of money by hiring other professionals who never delivered. Sam’s promises are solid and he never disappointed me. Sam’s work quality exceeds expectations. Many thanks Sam and I will absolutely recommend your service to family and friends.
Before hiring Faris CPA, I shopped around and I hired a CPA firm who offered significantly cheaper fee than Faris CPA. I must admit that this was a mistake. That firm promised the moon and they did not deliver. I learned by accident that the firm outsourced my file to a firm in India. I was very upset as I did not consent to have my returns done in India. I lost trust in the firm as the firm mislead me by making me believe that my file is being handled properly and efficiently by CPAs who are knowledgeable in Canadian taxes. I had to fire them immediately and hired Faris CPA. Sam Faris and his team dealt with my case efficiently and on timely basis. As a result, my many years of outstanding personal and corporate tax returns have been filed as promised. The taxes that I ended up owing are way less than what I expected. Sam Faris and his team performed a good tax planning strategy which saved me taxes. Faris CPA fee is very reasonable considering the quality of work that has been delivered and the tax saving that was achieved.Don’t hire a firm who provides cheaper fee as you will end up paying twice. In my situation, I ended up paying to a firm who outsourced my file to India and I came back and hired Faris to complete the job properly. Save your money, time and emotions and hire Faris CPA and they will get the job done to your satisfaction.

CRA audited me based on net worth audit. This audit lasted almost 2 years. I suffered emotionally and financially as a result. Bringing Sam and his team into the picture was the best decision that I have ever made. Sam followed a very unique strategy which led to dropping the taxes to my satisfaction. Thanks Sam for all your hard work.

TORONTO TAX LAW CASE STUDY

Whether you’re faced with a personal tax audit or unfiled returns, you need tax accountants in Toronto that you can trust. At Faris CPA, we go above and beyond for our clients, ensuring their needs are met with a level of sophistication and attention to detail.

Our client had been audited by the CRA and their findings showed a significant amount of unreported income based on net worth. The result of the auditor’s assessment meant that there was a significant amount owing to the CRA.

Sam has a sophisticated approach and process for fighting unique cases with complex audits. He found countless mistakes made by the auditor.

When Sam appealed the auditor’s decision because of their mistakes, the errors were rectified. This resulted in the owed amount going from a very large sum to nothing. Our client was ecstatic.
