Founded in 1994, TRS Tax Recovery Services Inc. is a boutique sales tax consulting firm which helps large companies across Canada recover overpaid GST/HST, QST, and PST.
As the firms principal, I have over 25 years of experience in sales tax recoveries and personally complete all reviews. My tax experience is supplemented by 12 years of experience in previous financial positions with Fortune 500 and Globe Top 1000 industry leaders.
Choosing a sales tax consulting firm for your tax review can be challenging when the market is saturated with firms; business development representatives are professional; and websites are impressive. That being said, it can be difficult to determine which firm is the best fit for your needs.
Why choose TRS:
Maximizing tax savings is primarily a function of a tax consultants experience - not the size or name of the firm! I have the specific skills, experience, and expertise in sales tax and financial accounting required to maximize tax savings for your company.
Work only with one expert
Its a one-to-one relationship working with TRS. I personally complete all reviews. I would work with you and your staff from our first meeting through completion of your review. With other firms, you may deal with a business development representative and work with one or more tax consultants who are employees or subcontractors having varied levels of experience in sales tax and financial accounting.
In-depth sales tax knowledge
Sales tax legislation is complex. My career in sales tax recoveries began in 1991. Based on over 25 years of experience, I am able to identify and maximize tax savings for your company.
A sales tax review is narrow in scope. As the firms principal, I would complete a comprehensive examination of your companys accounts payable and general ledger electronic data; hard and/or soft suppliers invoices; and other relevant accounting documents. An effective audit approach would be used whether your electronic data includes 1,000 or one million accounts payable transactions. You could rest-assured that a thorough examination of your records has been completed.
I would complete your review in an efficient and timely manner with minimal disruption to you and your staff. Your report would be completed within (7) days of completing the field review. My field time would be exclusively focused on completing your review in its entirety before any field time is expended on reviews for other clients.
I would recommend that your review be completed every 12 months to ensure prompt recovery of overpayments in sales tax. This cycle would also enable you to take corrective actions in respect to any areas of non-compliance which may have been identified. Furthermore, I would be the same consultant who would complete your review each year which provides for a more efficient review. With other firms, you may find that the consultants assigned to your review may change from year-to-year.
As the firms principal, I provide a personalized service. During your tax review, I would be most approachable; provide assistance on any sales tax questions that you and your staff may have; and keep you informed of my progress, tax savings, and exposure. Numerous testimonials reflect on the consistent level of service which I have provided to clients since 1994.
I am committed to personally providing exceptional service and maximizing tax savings for your company over the long-term.
Based on 25% of tax savings.
TRS may be the best fit for your needs! Please contact me if you have any questions.
