A global approach to our client's best interests

Tax litigation

Your situation will be analyzed from every angle

Tax law

Our tax litigation team regularly challenges assessments issued to individuals, trusts and companies by Revenue Quebec and the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

We will advise you on any subject regarding taxation law matters, including income taxes, goods and services taxes (GST) and Québec sales taxes (QST), obligatory withholdings and deductions at the source by employers or others.

To ensure the defence of our clients our tax litigation lawyers attend multiple continuing education seminars in order to remain informed and up-to-date on the jurisprudence and new decisions issued by courts in matters of taxation law, as well as the new approaches and directives taken by the taxation authorities. Indeed, this area of law is always changing and our tax litigation team defends our clients while equipped with the up-to-date information.

Our team of lawyers is very familiar with contesting new notices of assessment pertaining to, especially :

  • Refused businesses expenses
  • Undeclared income
  • Shareholder benefits
  • Liability of directors
  • Liability of third parties
  • Determination of the status of an independent worker or entrepreneur
  • Employee benefits
  • Alternative tax assessment methods
  • Tax residence

Our taxation attorneys, in co-operation with the accountant of the tax payer will assist and advise at every step of the tax litigation process, notably through:

  • Audits
  • Objections
  • Contestation in front of the appropriate court
  • Agreements for collection and recovery
  • Requests for relief
  • Voluntary disclosures
  • Penal and criminal charges according to tax laws
