We at LWA feel we have adapted well to the changes to business and life brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic. After 40 years of watching tax legislation changes, we are used to adapting!

While we are mostly settled down to our new normal, we are still committed to the safety of our staff and clients and recognize that individual situations do vary.

Site visits have long been a regular part of our operations – we can see firsthand the operations of our clients, which can impact the interpretation of tax legislation. Site visits are the most effective way to review the actual invoices for clues to recovery opportunities. Since March 2020 we are doing increasingly more virtual reviews, as preferred by many clients.

Prior to the pandemic, we had already been doing some remote work for clients that preferred it. The onset of the public health restrictions limiting inter-office visits spurred us on to further develop our capacity for recovering taxes virtually for our clients. Many organizations have moved to digital documents, and this has opened up many of our clients to having LWA complete a virtual review to identify overpaid and under-claimed taxes.

Capturing the new opportunities has always been our approach – and there have been many changes and additional exemptions arising from government reactions to the pandemic. We are keen to apply these for our clients, and have been refining our approach to these new and emerging tax recovery opportunities.

We continue to do site visits, when acceptable for the client and where allowed by public health authorities. At all times, consultants follow safety guidelines in keeping with current public health guidelines.

The bottom line is this: taxes can still be recovered from the government for most Canadian organizations. Getting a refund from the government is a welcome boost to your bottom line. We continue to help our existing and new clients. Contact us today to find out more.
