Tax Audits, Rulings & Appeals

Last Modified: 2016-10-20

To ensure you charge and pay the right amount of tax you may request a ruling or interpretation, be audited or file an appeal if you believe the Ministry of Finance made an error in a decision.

Audits

Your financial records may be audited to ensure you're charging and paying tax correctly. During an audit we will look at your records and identify any areas where you may not be doing this correctly.

Rulings

Rulings and interpretations are aids intended to help you understand the legislation and regulations. They are based on the ministry's interpretation of how the legislation and regulations apply to your specific circumstances or transactions.

Appeals

If you believe an error was made in an assessment, disallowed refund or other decision made by the Ministry of Finance, you may be able to appeal.
