Audit and accounting

The requirements of financial reporting and corporate governance for both private and public companies in Canada are highly complex.

Private enterprise

Baker Tilly Canada advisors appreciate the importance of sound decision‑making to a privately owned business’s bottom line.

Financial reporting and corporate governance ⁠–⁠ as well as raising funds and seeking out investment opportunities ⁠–⁠ is a complex endeavour for public companies in Canada.

Tax Services
Tax advisory

To comply with domestic and international tax laws, make effective decisions and reduce tax liabilities, Canadian businesses benefit from the insights of an experienced tax advisor.

Cross-border and international

The most effective cross‑border (U.S. and Canada) or international tax planning is based on your company’s specific circumstances, and identifies opportunities to both grow your business and minimize your tax burden.

EHT and workers’ compensation

Keeping workers safe, healthy and protected is an important part of any business’s success. We provide guidance to organizations and businesses that might need to participate in the Employer Health Tax (EHT), Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) or Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB), and are ready to assist with your compliance efforts.

Indirect tax

Indirect taxes ⁠–⁠ also known as consumption, commodity, sales‑and‑use or transaction‑based taxes ⁠–⁠ are complex, often nearly invisible charges which can create exposure if overlooked.

Scientific Research and Experimental Development

From creating new products to improving technologies, innovation is the cornerstone of Canadian competition. The Canadian government offers some of the most generous tax credit benefits in the world under the Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) investment tax credit program. Without professional guidance, your company could be missing out on valuable funding.

Transfer pricing

Transfer pricing is a complex area of corporate tax and represents a key point of risk for multinationals. The compliance burden for corporations when it comes to cross‑border transactions is significant ⁠–⁠ and non‑compliance can result in costly penalties.

U.S. corporate tax

For Canadian companies conducting business in the United States ⁠–⁠ or potentially expanding operations across the border ⁠–⁠ there are a variety of tax repercussions which need to be addressed.
