How can CRA find out your undisclosed income?
Don’t try to hide your undisclosed income. CRA has many ways to find out about your undisclosed income, such as from your bank account or employer; when your customers or suppliers are tax audited by CRA, etc….
In order to avoid heavy penalty charges and interest, the only way to avoid is to make a voluntary disclosure. However, you have to be qualified to get into this program.
Qualification for Voluntary Disclosure Program (VDP)
The Voluntary Disclosures Program (VDP) gives the taxpayers opportunity to disclose their unreported income to avoid penalties, interest and prosecution.
You must meet the all of the following conditions:
- Must be voluntary (Without being fist contacted by CRA);
- Must has potential penalty involved to your unreported income;
- Must be at least more than one year overdue for your unreported income;
- Must be completely disclosure of your unreported income for all reporting periods.
Once CRA accepts the disclosure, you will not be subject to penalties. And you won’t face potential prosecution. However, you still need to pay the amount of tax owing plus interest.
Granted or not accepted under VDP, why?
According to current CRA policy, VDP relief may be granted when the following circumstances occur:
- Not fulfill your obligations under the applicable act;
- Not to report taxable income you received;
- The ineligible expenses claimed on your tax return;
- Failed to remit your employees’ source deductions;
- Not report an amount of GST/HST;
- Not file information returns;
- Not report foreign-sourced income that is taxable in Canada.
Not accepted under the VDP if disclosure relating to bankruptcy returns and other circumstances. Please consult with our experienced tax consultant for evaluation about your qualification to apply for a VDP relief.
How to make disclosure?
There are two ways to make disclosure:
- A named disclosure;
- An un-named or anonymous disclosure.
The difference in the two types of disclosure is the timing of the identification of taxpayer. If the unnamed disclosure is made, the taxpayer has 90 days as anonymous taxpayer in the ongoing discussion with CRA. The purpose of making an anonymous disclosure is to get certainty of the VDP relief is available. Before the name of the taxpayer is disclosed, all discussion is considered to be non-binding and informal.
What happens if my disclosure denied by CRA?
You will receive a notice of denial from CRA. And on the letter, it could be the following stated.
- Your disclosure is rejected;
- An audit or investigation may be started;
- The penalties and interest charges are issued;
- An reassessment may be issued based on the disclosed information
- Other consequence may exist…depend on case by case
