Welcome to William Squibb and 
Associates, Tax Consultants

Preamble

As you may well know, Canadian Federal and Provincial Courts continue to define and interpret the Commodity Tax laws in our Country.

Commodity Taxes are charged on goods, property and provincial services. Sales Taxes; Fuel Taxes; Tobacco & Alcohol Taxes; Duties & Excises are all indirect "Goods Taxes" – and normally occasion an immediate demand on your organizational cash position.

Many companies and organizations operating in Canada OVERPAY millions of dollars in Commodity Taxes annually.

William Squibb & Associates provides a superior level of Commodity Tax Recovery to Canadian companies and organizations. A senior company in our field; we operate solely on a "contingency fee" basis. Should we be unable to find and locate a tax saving and return for a client business or organization, then no costs or fees are charged to the client.

We Succeed only when You Succeed!

The record of our achievement and success speaks for itself – 4 out of 5 of our tax record searches result in Tax Recovery Payments to our Clients - even in cases where other Tax Recovery firms had recently been engaged!

 

 

Introduction 

 

William Squibb & Associates is a leader in the field of Tax Recovery for Private and Public Sector bodies since 1988.  We believe that we are a very thorough and competent firm that provides a scope of service that is second to none! 

 

To date, we have recovered in excess of $30 Million for our Corporate, Municipal, Education, Health Care, Manufacturing Facility and First Nations clients, and continue to research and develop new tax law interpretations and issues that has proven to be beneficial to most of our customers.

Company Profile

 

William Squibb & Associates has been in the business of commodity Tax Recovery since 1988. During the initial years our focus was on Public Sector clients including First Nations, Municipalities, Universities, Colleges, School Boards, Hospitals, Charitable & Non-Profit Organizations. Our focus broadened in late 1992, to the manufacturing sector, when Rob Pearce joined the firm. This has allowed us to develop a strong multi-faceted approach to Tax Recovery in all sectors. It has also given us a great deal of expertise in developing new issues and refining existing ones. Over the course of time we have provided over 5,000 Tax Recovery Audits resulting in tax refunds exceeding 30 Million dollars for our Clients.

 

Our success nationally, is due in large part to the level of service and expertise, which we offer in respect to the Federal Goods & Services Tax and Provincial Sales Taxes in all Provinces. Especially in regards to GST, our exposure has allowed us to research and develop new approaches and interpretations to the difficult task of apportionment, a process through which expenditures are identified in terms of their relative use in commercial activity as either direct or indirect, with Input Tax Credits claimed accordingly. For many of our clients, our use of apportionment has led to significant findings,
even in cases where other Tax Recovery firms had recently been engaged.

 

Our research and development of new Federal and Provincial tax issues is ongoing and has given us the necessary skills to evaluate and pursue potential issues on behalf of our clients in a manner that ensures claims are related only to solid issues. We are continually searching for new areas, but refuse to make refund claims based purely on speculation. Confidence in the validity of obtained refunds is something we value as much as our clients!

We have performed reviews for cities such as Toronto and Vancouver all the way through to very small hamlets where the review process may take as little as half a day. Regardless of the size or nature of our clients concerns, we are able to provide a personal, tailored and intimate approach to providing Tax Recovery and education in a confidential and supportive manner.

Audit Approach Schedule

bullet

GST Rebates – We will ensure that all rebates have been applied for (examples of areas where rebates may have been missed; mis-coded invoices or expenses incurred where the GST was not evident). 
 

bullet

Input tax credits (ITC’s) – We will ensure that ITC’s have been claimed for expenses incurred in providing taxable services.
 

bullet

HST/QST - Where applicable, Harmonized Sales Tax or Quebec Sales tax will be investigated if the client purchases from the Maritimes or Quebec.
 

bullet

 Provincial Sales Tax (PST) – The Retail Sales Act contains specific exemptions for Municipal expenditures. We will ensure that you are not paying PST on items, which fall within these exemptions.

Work Plan

We will thoroughly investigate all payments made by the client with respect to overpayments or liabilities of tax within our areas of specialty.

  1. Staff Resources and Estimated Audit Hours

bullet

Timeline

As indicated previously, the time required for a comprehensive Tax Recovery audit is inherently hinged to the amount of work to be completed. Some clients are interested in having one specific tax type or issue investigated while others desire a full and comprehensive review. Size of the Client and number of locations also effect the time required. Upon a client indicating their wish for a review, we will then discuss with them what they would like included in their review and at that time formulate and commit to a time frame for completion of the work. At this time, for the City of Prince George, we would commit to a time frame of three days on site at your location, with the balance of work to be done at our offices if required. Completion of review and filing claims should take no more than a week at our location.

bullet

Client Implications

The Client is required to ensure that all pertinent records are available and accessible to the consultant on the day of the review. Other than that, the consultant requires only 10 to 15 minutes of a staff member’s time at the beginning of the review, to familiarize themselves with the files and establish a workspace for themselves and their computer.

  1. Annual Audit Results Presentation

bullet

During the course of our review, we will document any areas where a Tax liability may exist. These liabilities will be noted in the final report to the Client. Use of this information is left to the Client’s discretion.
 

bullet

Upon completion of the review, we will prepare a detailed report outlining the areas of recovery entitlement. This knowledge can be used by the Client to adjust their internal reporting procedures to reflect the issues brought to light through the review.
 

bullet

 Following the resolution of all claims initiated by our firm, we will meet with the Client to present our report and answer any questions the Client may have regarding the review performed.
 

bullet

We utilize the CICA’s Computerized Electronic Library Service, which enables us to access information relevant to any enquiry a Client may have regarding Sales Tax. Our toll-free Tax Hotline is available to all our Clients at no charge.

 

  1. Fee For Services

Our commission is a modest percentage of any tax recoveries received that were initiated by our firm. Our invoice is not due until you have received your refund.  If there are no recoveries, there is no charge whatsoever for services rendered.

Current Tax Knowledge

William Squibb & Associates are committed to providing our clients the best consultants possible. For this reason, our consultants are updated on a continually on-going basis regarding any legislative changes and possible impact on the various financial sectors we serve. Our firm pays 100% of course or tuition costs for any program a consultant may wish to take to enhance their financial skills and abilities. As well, each consultant completes two test cases every six months that are designed to incorporate the latest tax legislation and the results are monitored to determine the consultants’ level of compliance. These test cases are varied by sector so one session may incorporate a hospital test case and a manufacturer test case, while the next session may be a non-profit organization and also a Fist Nation Band. We continue to set aside blocks of time where the consultants also study current legislation to identify areas open to interpretation depending on application that may be of benefit to our current or future clients. We have a high level of commitment to keeping our consultants at the leading edge of their field because it’s that small increase in knowledge or awareness that can make a huge impact on potential for recovery. We also believe that experience is the best teacher and, as you can see by our team assigned, we have some of the most experienced Tax Recovery consultants in the industry today.

Post Review Support

Our client support post-review, is 100%. As you are aware, we offer toll-free access to professional tax advice to all or our clients after any given review, for the period of one year. Should a tax authority audit our client and have questions or concerns regarding any claims initiated by our firm, we provide a consultant on-site to meet with the client and the auditor at no cost to the client. This service is not limited by any time constraint. If the audit happens four years after our recovery, we will be prepared to defend the claim and support any contention we may hold with solid documentation. Our intention is to develop a long-term relationship with our clients and we know that our support after the review is critical in this respect. Should any disallowance of a previously awarded claim be determined, we will gladly refund the portion of our commission that relates to the disallowance.
