Case Study

A new client had a difficult CRA audit that disallowed an HST refund valued at almost one million dollars. The CRA audit revealed that his previous accountant had made significant errors which resulted in the disallowing a very significant HST refund.

Sam Faris and his team performed an intensive review of the proposal letter from the CRA along with the income tax act. We were convinced that the case would be won if the records were corrected and a new argument was submitted as a replace to the proposal letter from the CRA.

The CRA auditor denied the response. Our firm filed a Notice of Objection to the CRA.

The Notice of Objection was successful, and our client was able to recover, not only the original refund, but there were additional amounts that the previous accounted had missed that were awarded to our client as well.


What is included in audited financial statements?
Audited financial statements include a profit and loss statement, balance sheet, statement of cash flows, and statement of changes in owners’ equity. They help you keep track of your records and transactions.
What is the difference between audited and unaudited financial statements?
Audited financial statements have been examined by a third-party accountant who can confirm that the information is accurate and factual. On the other hand, unaudited financial statements don’t have that guarantee.
How long does it take to have financial statements audited?
It takes up to three months to audit financial statements. The process includes four weeks of planning, four weeks of fieldwork and four weeks of compiling the audit report.


“We really needed an accountant who could help us with complex CRA tax audit because frankly speaking, we were in a mess kind of a situation. Someone referred us to Sam and his team, we contacted them and within short time, they constructed a systematic approach to tackle the issues. Since then, Sam has been preforming the review of our financial statements with no issue. He helped us immensely and that’s why I’d definitely recommend Sam Faris and his team of fariscpa.com.”
