Property Tax

Minimize tax liability, maximize certainty.

A personalized approach to optimizing property tax obligations

Property taxes can pose significant challenges, impacting the way companies operate. They can make up a sizable percentage of operating costs, eating into profits and leaving less money to reinvest in business growth, as well as hindering expansion. Added to this, fluctuating property values and complex regulatory processes can make it difficult for many businesses to identify and capitalize on opportunities to reduce their tax liability.

BDO’s Property Tax team helps clients understand and reduce their property tax burdens so they can make the right financial and business decisions for their organization while staying compliant.

Our team of experienced professionals work with clients to help better understand their organization’s property values while minimizing tax obligations, with a range of consulting and assessment services that include:

  • Property tax consulting – With deep understanding of provincial tax systems, we help our clients navigate complex regulations and appeal processes. We review property assessments to identify potential opportunities for tax savings.
  • Assessment appeals – We have expertise working with property assessment organizations to help businesses navigate the appeals process in their region.
  • Municipal tax rebates – We can identify whether a property is eligible for a tax rebate, working with clients to complete the necessary paperwork and filing process to ensure they receive the maximum rebate available.
  • Tax mitigation strategies – We work with our clients to develop tax mitigation strategies to reduce their overall tax liability. We review property valuations and operating expenses to identify potential opportunities for tax savings.
