Taxation


Corporate Income Tax

We prepare federal and provincial income tax returns for corporations across Canada. Whenever possible we electronically file the returns to ensure Canada Revenue Agency receives all the necessary information on time. We are in contact with representatives at the CRA should any information require clarification. With our years of experience and knowledge in tax, we aim to maximize your tax savings while ensuring all returns follow the strict guidelines set out by the Canadian Income Tax Act.


Personal Income Tax

April is a busy month here at McIntyre & Associates, and that’s because we are working hard on preparing personal income tax returns. Our internal review process ensures that a tax specialist at the firm reviews each return to ensure maximum tax savings. We prepare tax returns for employed or self-employed individuals. We also prepare tax returns for high net worth individuals or complex tax situations.


Comprehensive Tax Review

If you are a high net worth individual or you aren’t sure whether your current business structure is tax efficient, we offer a comprehensive tax review. McIntyre & Associates will dig into your business structure and determine the optimal corporate structure to maximize tax savings or deferral and also to minimize additional administrative costs and fees.


Corporate Reorganizations

In certain circumstances corporate reorganizations may be required. We are able to work closely with your lawyer and other advisors to ensure the optimal structure is achieved, and that the reorganization occurs in a reasonable time and at a reasonable cost.


We Can Correspond with CRA on your behalf

With your consent, we can correspond by telephone or letter. We are also able to obtain direct online access to your various corporate and personal taxation accounts. This allows us to track your balances and payments in real time. We are often able to provide information of refunds even before you receive the information in the mail.


Scientific Research and Experimental Development Claims (SRED)

SRED claims can be vital to start-up businesses or a useful injection of cash to established businesses. At McIntyre & Associates we can help guide you through the process which includes assessing SRED eligibility, assisting with preparation of write-ups, tracking costs and expenses and ultimately filing all the schedules required for SRED returns.


Assistance With Income Tax Audits

If you have been notified of a CRA audit and are unsure what to do next, we can help. Having an experienced accountant involved can not only facilitate the process and reduce the impact the audit has on the day to day operations of the business, but can also help to ensure you achieve the best result.

If you have already received an audit assessment, McIntyre and Associates can help you file a Notice of Objection, or ultimately assist with appeals, or negotiations with income tax authorities.


Compliance Reporting

With the time commitments required to run a successful business it can be hard to stay on top of all the tax compliance reporting. Many of our clients choose us to do it for them, thus alleviating stress of deadlines and the risks of errors.

Below is a list of compliance work that we can provide assistance with:

  • Estate and Trust tax return preparation and filing
  • Partnership Information Returns and T5013’s
  • Preparation and filing of special elections (rollovers, Capital
  • Dividend Elections)
