  • Oversaw the filing of multiple Voluntary Disclosure files with Canada CRA and Quebec Minister of Revenue for unreported income related to offshore investments. [lead partner: Jon Levy].
     
  • Planned and implemented an asset restructuring for two sizable estates resulting in the ability to take advantage of major losses available for carry forward. [lead partner: Edward Victor]​
  • Structured a business reorganization to implement the partial transfer and expansion of a very successful Periodontal practice to two periodontists. [lead partners: Edward Victor & Sylvie Plante]
     
  • Assisted approximately 50 American's in Canada with IRS compliance issues, including US tax catch-ups, FBAR's, voluntary disclosures; structuring corporate holdings, cross border estate planning. [lead partner: Jon Levy]
     
  • ​Created a Family Trust to pay for childrens' post-secondary education with pre-tax corporate earnings. These beneficiaries receive dividends on a tax-free basis due to their limited income and tuition fee deduction. [lead partner: Ken Shemie]
     
  • Prepared and negotiated a GST/HST voluntary disclosure to recover Input Tax Credits (ITC) for a non-resident operating in Canada. We assisted a non-resident multi-national corporation to register for GST/HST and successfully recover a significant amount of ITC’s through the voluntary disclosure program. [lead partner: Ken Shemie]
     
  • Submitted a Regulation 105 waiver, which avoided witholdings of 24% of gross billing for a non-resident providing services in Quebec. This aided  the non-resident’s cash flow, since the profit margin on the Canadian contract was low. [lead partner: Ken Shemie]
     
  • Prepared certificates of compliance for non-residents selling real property in Canada to minimize tax withholdings on the sale of real estate.
