Passion. Trust. Expertise... Results.

Navigating the complexities of tax law can prove difficult, even without the legal jargon.  At McQuarrie, we are here to help you make sense of it all.  Whether you need tax planning solutions or require legal representation, our experienced team of highly trained professionals is ready to help you. 

With a plan tailored to your specific needs, and keeping in mind your tax risk tolerance, we’ll guide you to your goals in the most efficient and effective manner possible.

Tax Planning

One of two inevitable parts of life, taxes affect virtually every part of the average Canadian’s life, from income to investing to daily purchases, taxes are inescapable.  Proper tax planning allows you to manage your finances effectively, taking advantage of existing rules that can maximize the amount of income you retain each year or defer for the future.

After a careful analysis of your present situation, we will be able to better anticipate issues and risks that you might face. We’ll lay out several possible courses of action available to you, helping you achieve your desired results.

We also assist with tax modeling and tax due diligence to help you examine the consequences of transactions such as the acquisition or sale of shares of a business.  Proper due diligence will provide you with necessary information to make more informed purchasing decisions and identify business or company historical tax risks.

Whether it is general tax planning, tax reporting, or any other type of tax consultation, McQuarrie will see you through.

Tax Litigation

Our team has the knowledge and experience to assist you at every stage of tax disputes.  We will assist with pre-transaction analysis and documentation, and work to reduce the possibility of a challenge or audit.  In the event of an audit taking place, we provide representation from the outset to reassessment and, if necessary, in appealing a matter to the courts.

No matter your needs, McQuarrie will be there, protecting your legal privilege and asserting your taxpayer rights.

Do You Need a Tax Lawyer?

Although many businesses and individuals already receive tax advice from a variety of other professionals such as bookkeepers, accountants, and financial advisors, more complex tax issues often see them referring clients to us.  We welcome referrals.

Another starting point for assessing whether you can benefit from specialized tax advice is by estimating the tax liability at stake for the particular circumstance that you face.  This can be accomplished by using a tax calculator (with graduated tax rates) to estimate your tax liability, or by applying the highest marginal tax rate applicable to the income or gain that you expect to realize personally or through another entity.  With this information on hand, a consultation with a tax lawyer should help you to identify available options and objectives.

Whatever your needs or present situation, McQuarrie is here to help.  Contact us today to learn more about what we can do for you.
