CRA Resumes Audit Activity

On May 28, 2020, the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) announced that audit activity, slowed by COVID-19, is resuming. The CRA continues to prioritize matters beneficial to taxpayers (benefit and credit matters), large dollar value files, and files with “strategic importance” to Canada, provinces/territories and treaty partners.

If progress on your audit is urgent, the CRA will prioritize it after being informed of the urgency.

The CRA also confirmed that many existing COVID-19 policies remain in place:

  • collections activities on new debts remain suspended until further notice, and
  • the deadline for objections due between March 18, 2020 and June 30, 2020 remains extended to June 30, 2020.

The full announcement is available here.
