The “big and mean brother” of the tax audit, the tax investigation is a much deeper review with the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) looking for evidence to prosecute you criminally under the Income Tax Act or Excise Tax Act.
Only professionals experienced in the audit process and the investigation process can properly monitor what is happening. If the CRA makes mistakes in this process then their ability to prosecute you successfully may be wiped out. We understand the subtle differences and the legal requirements that the CRA must comply with in order to transition from audit to investigation. We know what they are allowed to (and not allowed to) do in each of these roles. This means we can use the appropriate responses to protect your interests.
