CRA Collections

What you need to know about CRA Collections

The CRA has several powers to force collections of unpaid taxes such as – individual and corporate income tax, payroll deductions, GST/HST returns.  Not only can this lead to interest charges and penalties, but the CRA can garnish wages, freeze bank accounts, seize investments and place a lien on property, in an effort to collect tax debt owed.

We know that having CRA debt can be overwhelming, but you don’t have to handle it alone.  In fact, handling it alone comes with significant risks and will likely make a difficult situation even worse. CRA Collections representation is where we can support you in dealing with a CRA Collector.

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has a wide range of tools to collect taxes owed and can apply them more quickly than other creditors.
