REAL ESTATE TAX
FOR NON-RESIDENTS
Whether you are an individual looking to buy property in our beautiful province, a real estate broker or a notary trying to help your client in a real estate transaction, navigating the Canadian tax system can be difficult, and have serious consequences on any investment property returns, once all is said and done.
Do you know the actual tax implications of a rental property? Whether the ultimate intention is to rent out, or own to sell with a profit, it is imperative to conduct some due diligence and /or take the right steps BEFORE signing on the dotted line… We work directly with clients, in collaboration with real estate brokers and notaries who refer non-resident property owners to us, to avoid making the wrong decision before it is too late to revert them, once the purchase or sale is concluded.

TAX PLANNING

The goal of all our tax planning services is to minimize the tax burden and reduce financial risk to owners of short-term rental properties. We accomplish this by going above and beyond what a technician could accomplish – each client’s unique financial picture, needs and history is taken into account and used to develop their personalized tax strategy.
Government Reporting and Filings

It is no secret that navigating through two levels of governments – especially for a foreigner – can be tricky. Our team can help with all types of government reporting related to rental properties owned by Canadian residents, and non-residents alike.

  • Income Tax Return preparation and filing under Section 216 for non-residents
  • Social Insurance Number request filing with tax authorities for tax filing purposes
  • Tax and planning advisory services (corporate and personal)
  • Compliance Certificate requests filing with tax authorities at the time of a property sale
  • Vacation rental GST / QST returns
