img-20160813-wa0000

Noted Toronto tax expert Michael Atlas operates a totally unique tax consulting practice in Toronto. Although he is a CPA, he does not prepare tax returns or provide accounting services. He is totally devoted to tax consulting!

Since the time that he opened his specialized tax consulting “boutique” in 1991, hundred of accounting and law firms from all parts of Canada have sought his advice.

His main priority is always to combine his vast technical knowledge of Canadian tax law, his extensive and wide-ranging experience, and his creative imagination, to find ways for his clients to eliminate or substantially reduce their liability for Canadian taxes.

He is a strong advocate of the doctrine expressed in the extract below from a famous 1936 UK tax case:

“Every man is entitled, if he can, to order his affairs so as that the tax attaching under the appropriate Acts is less than it otherwise would be. If he succeeds in ordering them so as to secure this result, then, however unappreciative the Commissioners of Inland Revenue or his fellow taxpayers may be of his ingenuity, he cannot be compelled to pay an increased tax.”

Michael Atlas can help you if you are:

  • A very high net-worth individual, whether resident in Canada or not
  • A successful, asset-rich corporation, whether Canadian or foreign
  • A Canadian accountant or lawyer
  • A foreign accountant or lawyer
  • A financial institution or advisor
  • An executor of an Estate or trustee of a Trust 

AN EXPERT AT USING INTERNATIONAL TAX PLANNING
