“Lost Opportunities Found – Ontario HST Tax Recovery “
What are “Tax Recovery” Services?
The primary service that we offer is to discover and then to recover taxes that you are entitled to recoup but which were missed, for one reason or another? A foregone opportunity represents taxes overpaid. We identify those opportunities, discuss them with you and ensure you get them back without any risk.
If you have overpaid your taxes for any one of hundreds of reasons, then you are entitled to get that money back. It is YOUR Company’s money. The government doesn’t deserve to receive more than the law entitles it to.
How long will it take?
Your time is valuable. This service typically requires approximately 30 minutes of your time to determine if you would like to proceed with an engagement. If you decide that you would like to give it a try, then the rest of the work is primarily left up to us.
When will I know how much money I will get back?
When we have completed our review (or at any time during the process), we will take as long or as little time as you would like in order to understand:
- The amount of the recovery
- The nature of the recovery
- The source of the over payment and/or
- How to ensure it does not happen in the future.
How do I recover the taxes?
We merely present you with a journal entry to record in to your books and records (along with all of the supporting documentation for you to keep). Effectively, you get your money back the next time you file your HST return.
How much does it cost?
There is no cost to engage us. If we find any taxes that you are entitled to recover, then we will share equally in those savings. Otherwise, our services are complimentary. They are also confidential. At your request, we will provide you with a “privileged” exposure report to point out any areas which you may wish to focus on to protect yourself in case of an audit.
What do I have to do?
We would like to discuss the process with you. Once we have explained things more thoroughly and we have answered your questions, we would like you to sign a simple, one-page agreement. At your convenience, we would then arrange for a time to access your Company’s HST returns, bank statements and various other books and records.
