How a Business Tax Lawyer Can Help You
If you operate a business, having an experienced tax lawyer on your side is critical. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is difficult and complicated to work with in the best of times. If you are being audited, if you object to a CRA assessment or reassessment, or if you have a tax issue, it becomes even tougher to communicate and negotiate with the CRA. This is where a business tax lawyer becomes necessary.
The CRA is incredibly powerful. The agency knows that it has very strong powers and it uses these powers as leverage when dealing with individuals and businesses. If you have a tax dispute or other issue, agents will attempt to pressure you to accept the agency’s ruling without question. This can be very costly for a business. However, attempting to fight the CRA or appeal a CRA decision on your own is very a very difficult and lengthy process.
Working with a business tax lawyer helps even the playing field. Tax law in Canada changes frequently and having a legal expert on your side ensures that your rights are respected and that your voice and your side of the argument is heard.
This becomes especially important if your business is dealing with serious tax charges, such as unreported income and tax evasion charges. You will certainly want to have legal representation in these cases, especially if you are going to court.
Dealing with Tax Problems with a Business Tax Lawyer
In recent years, the CRA has begun to crack down on situations of unreported income. If the agency believes that your business has income that it has not properly reported, it can charge significant penalties. It may even consider your actions to be tax evasion if the agency believes you purposely failed to disclose income to avoid paying taxes. This is a very serious charge that could see your business hit with a substantial fine. Criminal charges and even potential jail time are also possible.
If your company is dealing with the CRA with an issue like undeclared income, it’s crucial to work with a business tax lawyer. An experienced legal expert can help you prepare a case that explains your side of the situation, present this case to the CRA along with supporting evidence, and represent your business in court, including the Tax Court of Canada, and the Federal Court of Appeal.
A Business Tax Lawyer and CRA Audits
A CRA audit is another situation where it’s important to have expert representation. While audits do not usually result in criminal charges, working with a business tax lawyer during your audit will help ensure that your rights are protected and that the audit has been organized and carried out fairly.
Other Benefits of a Business Tax Lawyer
As you can see, working with a business tax lawyer ensures that you get fair treatment from the CRA. It also means that you will receive expert representation in meetings with the agency as well as in court. However, there are other benefits to working with a legal tax expert. One of the most important is that a lawyer guarantees you lawyer-client privilege. This means that you will be free to discuss your tax situation in full with your legal team without having to worry. Your information will always be kept in strict confidence.
