Eric Atkinson heads up our Taxation Group, a subsection of our Corporate and Commercial Group. He is assisted by Gerald Green.
Tax lawyers in Nova Scotia are as uncommon as they are invaluable. Mac, Mac & Mac is pleased to be able to provide this type of expertise to its clients. Eric’s range of bilingual services include corporate and personal tax, estate planning, business succession planning, tax opinions, advance rulings, HST, customs, excise and sales tax, and all forms of tax advocacy at all levels of our Tax Courts. If there is a tax component to a transaction, our Tax Group is available for advice and guidance.
We keep the financial well being of our clients foremost in our legal strategies. Eric puts it this way: “We believe all clients owe it to themselves to arrange their affairs to minimize tax liability. Taxpayers are entitled and expected to find ways to ensure they are not overtaxed by accident or poor planning. Our job is to make sure the client is aware of available options”.
Canadian tax rules are constantly changing. With strategic insight, our job is to create legitimate financial structures that maximize existing opportunities and anticipate future business and legal developments. We work closely with our clients’ accountants and financial advisors, to ensure maximum tax advantage.
Our commitment does not stop with strategic advice. Facing an assessment notice or an unexpected audit, our clients take comfort in the experience and advocacy we can provide on their behalf.
Above all, we strive to make Canada’s complex tax system understandable to our clients. Working with them, we explore every strategic option available, to ensure their financial interests are asserted and protected.
