I use an accountant. Can your service still help?
The CRA keeps calling me. How do I get them to stop?
With tax investigation insurance, you never have to face the CRA alone.
Why do I even need an accountant to defend my taxes?
Professionals do not just submit the requested information without doing a thorough internal examination to avoid any unnecessary exposure of the client file to the CRA. Tax audits involve subjective factors and therefore do require tax expertise to negotiate a better outcome. It is not just a simple document submission excise.
Audits take a long time to complete. In some cases investigations can drag on for years. Typical audits can range from a few weeks to several months and require ongoing communication with the CRA. It may become too time consuming or simply inconvenient for you.
There is far too much uncertainty and complexity to a tax audit. Without professional help, you will very likely find yourself stuck, confused and helpless.
I've never heard of you or Tax Investigation Insurance before. Can I trust you?
We know, first hand, that this protection is needed in Canada. Our founder and CEO, Richard Little, has personal experience of being targeted by the CRA – a few years ago, his business was audited. Unfortunately, the CRA didn’t stop there; they attacked him personally as well. He ended up paying $60,000 out of pocket to successfully defend his tax file.
This experience is the reason we urge any business owner to protect themselves with a personal policy, as well as protecting their business.
I’m already in the middle of an audit. Can you still help?
