Audits of Corporate Taxes
Corporate tax audits are much more common, at least with respect to GST, and especially Payroll. We very rarely see audits of an entire corporate tax return, but GST returns are often questioned, and CRA seems to have a veritable army of payroll compliance auditors. When we do your bookkeeping or payroll, there are no hourly fees for taking care of your audit; we already have all of the data at our fingertips, we know exactly what to provide, and we can respond very quickly as a result.
If you do your own books, or have an external bookkeeper, we first have to figure out how the numbers came about, and then prepare it for the auditor. As a result, we charge hourly for these services.
