Kalfa Law Firm assists corporate clients in the preparation of comprehensive and dynamic tax plans to achieve optimal tax-saving results.

We assist our clients in reducing their tax debt by preparing Taxpayer Relief Applications to reduce or eliminate the ballooning penalties and interest levied by the CRA.

We also service businesses in their tax disputes with the Canada Revenue Agency. We prepare comprehensive submissions and appeals that defend and further our clients’ interests when they have received notice that their tax filings are under audit or when their deductions or benefits are being denied. Where necessary, we bring matters to the Tax Court of Canada to appeal the decision of the CRA.

We prepare Voluntary Disclosure applications for clients who have failed to report their full income or offshore holdings in previous taxation years, allowing them to correct incorrect filings without the CRA’s imposition of harsh penalties and interest.

For those clients who experience the CRA’s more severe collection and enforcement actions, such as garnishments, liens and seizures, we negotiate with the CRA to lift the enforcement actions and establish a voluntary payment plan.
