As governments around the world seek additional revenues through added taxation, companies, individuals, and other entities are facing an increasingly complex tax environment. At McLennan Ross, we provide strategic tax solutions and exceptional service to our clients facing the unique challenge of operating in a modern economy.
For decades, the highly skilled lawyers in our Tax Practice Group have assisted privately-held corporations and their owners meet compliance obligations while limiting their potential tax liability. We also have extensive experience assisting other entities, including registered charities and not-for-profits, with identifying and meeting their obligations pursuant to the Income Tax Act.
Our clients include individuals, partnerships, trusts, joint ventures, public authorities, and registered charities and not-for-profits.
We provide practical advice and guidance on all matters relating to Canadian income tax and GST and assist with the creation and preservation of wealth through tax planning and litigation.
Innovative and proactive tax strategies.
With considerable experience in most areas of corporate taxation, our lawyers advise on corporate reorganizations and transactions, financing, and investment. We provide innovative and practical tax advice, finding cost-effective solutions to complex problems.
Our focus also covers a wide array of situations beyond corporations, including CRA reporting obligations for individuals and other entities, and all Canadian tax considerations including those related to selling a business, estate planning, real estate transactions, registered charities and not-for-profits, and employment compensation for both residents and non-residents.
Working closely with our clients, our primary goal is to provide forward-thinking strategies to identify potential threats to their businesses and create a tax plan to avoid issues. When necessary, we are strong advocates in all levels of disputes from audit to appeals to court. Unlike accounting firms, our team includes experienced tax litigators who can represent our clients in all phases of tax dispute resolution. We plan practical and effective legal strategies that make tax litigation as efficient and seamless as possible.
