Before finding Faris CPA, I have worked with 2 other companies, and they don’t come close to the amount of help that the firm has given me. They were a big help in filling outstanding tax returns under the Voluntary Disclosure Program and their fee was reasonable. Sam always goes the extra mile to make sure that all my questions are answered. I highly recommend this firm.

Case Study

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.

How To

If you have not filed your Canadian tax returns, or if you have filed them and CRA believes that you have not reported all of your income, they may issue a new worth assessment. They take two financial snapshots, one at the start of the audit period and one at the end.

What is the Voluntary Disclosure Program?
Voluntary disclosure is the name of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) Tax amnesty Program that allows Canadian taxpayers to correct back tax problems including unfiled tax returns or unreported income. Taxpayers can submit Voluntary disclosure application along with corrected or missing tax returns in order to avoid tax penalties or prosecution.
I’m being audited by the CRA. How do I stop the audit?
Once an audit is started you cannot stop it. You can hire a Certified Professional Accountant who specializes in tax problems that can ensure your rights are protected and that any taxes and/or penalties can be minimized.
Can I challenge a net worth audit?
The CRA can perform a net worth audit to determine what they believe your under reported income is. Challenging a net worth audit should be done by a professional who has in depth understanding in this type of audit, strong analytical skills and who has disputed this type of audit with CRA for many years in order to minimize any taxes that CRA is asking you to pay.


Sam Faris reduced the significant unreported income based on net worth audit to be nil. Sam’s approach in fighting these types of complex audits is unique and sophisticated. He found countless mistakes made by the auditor which were rectified when Sam appealed the audit decision. Instead of owing significant amount of taxes, Sam reduced it to zero. I highly recommend to hire Sam for this type of audits and any CRA problem.”
