• Indirect Tax

    BDO helps clients maximize refunds, minimize costs, and resolve conflicts.

Combing through details, cutting complexities

Most transactions involve indirect taxes, including GST/HST, QST, PST and Carbon Tax. These taxes can easily increase the cost of doing business – especially if refund and tax minimization opportunities are overlooked. A thorough understanding of Canada’s intricate tax rules is essential to maximizing profit, maintaining compliance and reducing tax risk.

BDO's Indirect Tax team advises clients on the measures needed to navigate complexities, identify tax efficiencies, and drive value. We review returns to find errors and recover overpaid taxes, manage the government audit process, advise on cash flow improvement, identify tax or duty recovery opportunities, and more.
