Appeals and tax court actions
After the audit is complete you have 90 days from the date shown on the Notice of Assessment to make an appeal. This can be done either through a Notice of Objection alone or through an appeal to the Tax Court of Canada.
The Notice of Objection can be an effective way to resolve disputes on expenditures. However, in certain cases an appeal to the Tax Court of Canada may be both faster and offer a better opportunity for success, particularly if scientific eligibility is the primary issue.
Our legal counsel, who practices exclusively in the field of taxation law, will review the facts of your situation and develop a redress strategy that fits your circumstances and your budget. We will help you prepare all the submission documents and represent you in SR&ED negotiations with CRA and - if necessary - in tax court.
