Voluntary Disclosure

Voluntary Disclosure

Voluntary Disclosure Program also known as VDP is a program provided by the CRA which allows the taxpayer a second chance to correct a tax return you previously filled or to file a return that you should have filed. 

You can apply for the VDP to correct errors or omission in your tax filings. The VDP program can only be filed once which provides relief from prosecution and in some cases from penalties that you would otherwise be required to pay. 

 

We review your tax profile and understand your needs. We provide advice based on your unique profile and advice if VDP would be the best course of action for you.
