Not doing a tax mandate? Start now!

In this video our Sales Tax Director, J.D. Vermette, highlights 3 reasons why it is important to engage in sales tax recovery, and how you can get started!

What is Sales Tax Recovery?

Sales taxes, also known as consumption taxes, are government fees linked to a transaction. Sales taxes available include:

● Goods and Services Tax (GST)

● Provincial and Federal Harmonized Tax (HST)

● Provincial Sales Tax (PST)

Both Canadian and American companies that sell within Canada can participate in sales tax recovery. However, due to the complexity and multi-level integration of the Canadian sales tax system, the claims process can be a real time-consuming headache unless you seek the help of an expert.

    What Is It Like To Work With Us?


    The Leyton team’s retroactive sales tax claim process is simple, clear, and efficient. Their expertise, professionalism, and final report was everything we expected.

    Hugo Bélanger Finance and Administration – Lactanet


    Working with the Leyton team to recover our sales taxes was excellent. They quickly understood the complexity of our business and were able to clearly explain the process. We are pleased with their efficiency and the result.

    Mariam Ganni Finance Director – Beauté Star


    Leyton’s sales tax service is really excellent, we appreciate their professionalism and expertise. Working with their team was a time saver and a real investment for our company.

    Hervé Poupard Finance Director – Quality Group


    I was pleasantly surprised at the tax recovery work performed by the Leyton consultant. The approach was conservative to not be offside with Canada Revenue Agency, but even so the amount recovered was much more than expected. The final report presented the details of the claim in a methodical and straight-forward format and was easy to understand. The audit work and counsel provided by our Leyton consultant was exemplary and professional. 

    Tyler Harrison Finance Director – In-Line Pigging Solutions


    Envirotech Office Systems engaged Leyton for a Sales Tax recovery audit and we had our refund 2 months later, I would encourage any business owner to continuously review their financial data for sales tax recovery as it is hard for any finance team to remain on top of all of the complexities at all times.

    Joanne Lytwyn President – Envirotech


    It was a pleasure to work with a professional sales tax consultant. My company is quite complex in setting up its legal entities, and she was very efficient in getting the appropriate information by asking direct and great questions.
