Issues of GST law are constantly relevant for all of us. That is why the emergence of disagreements between the taxpayer and state bodies in the field of taxation and fees is quite understandable. Unfortunately, not always at the stage of GST planning and (or) optimization it is possible to prevent and prevent them.
Especially if you admit that the procedure for calculating taxes is becoming more complicated, and the legal norms designed to regulate GST relations are increasingly difficult to interpret. It is also worth remembering that the GST authorities have beforehand issued plans for the number of persons brought to responsibility, the number of violations identified, etc. The role of the Toronto GST Lawyer happens to be immense here.
Then there are GST disputes.
Types of GST disputes
- Disputes related to the invalidation of acts of GST authorities
- Disputes related to the recognition of acts of the GST authority that are not subject to enforcement
- Disputes related to the return of funds from the budget, including in cases of indisputable cancellation by the GST authority
- Disputes related to the collection of mandatory payments and sanctions (non-payment of taxes)
- Other disputes.
If you take into account the official statistics, the share of cases lost by the GST authorities is steadily decreasing. If we also take into account the opinion that the level of training of GST officials and the quality of inspections in most cases is increasing, for some interested persons this is enough to more competently defend their position in the GST dispute.
At each of us at a certain point in time, there is a need for legal services. At the same time, it would be desirable for lawyers providing services to be adequate, to know their business, to have the necessary experience and knowledge, to be a model of client-orientedness and at the same time, the price level was acceptable to the client. As a rule, there is an opinion that cheap services are a priori substandard, while expensive ones can even be upscale, but they are not always needed in every business that arises. Therefore, a suitable variant suitable for an individual client is suitable.
As well as the price to choose a lawyer is also not clear. Therefore, the option “ask friends” (it’s a word-of-mouth radio, although one always wants confidentiality provided by law firms) is suitable, to see who and with whom he worked before, to see who is nearby. Then you can look at experience, knowledge, practice (always want the largest possible amount of suitable experience). Then you can pay attention to the recommendations of other customers, publications in profile publications, presentations at conferences, the presence of a team of lawyers.
