Sales and Transaction Tax Consulting
SALES & USE TAX
Merit offers a full range of sales and use tax services – on an “as needed” basis or as your outsourced tax department. We offer reviews of your payables to determine whether you have overpaid tax or have tax exposure. We can recover overpaid tax. We provide guidance and training regarding tax on your purchases. We can provide guidance regarding nexus and collection of tax on your sales. We can save you time and money by implementing software for handling sales tax on invoicing. We provide defense in case of audits, or perform voluntary compliance procedures to enable your company to resolve liability issues. On an outsourced basis, we can perform your entire sales tax function, including accruals of tax, filing returns, and handling audits as if we were your employee.
Merit provides compliance services and guidance in regards to severance taxes. For example, we can assist in the process of obtaining certification for a natural gas well to be qualified as “high cost” and therefore subject to a reduced severance tax rate in Texas.
CANADIAN GST/PST TAX
Merit provides consultation and compliance services in regards to Canadian GST/HST and PST issues. This includes the following: accounting for GST, cross-border issues, computing input tax credits, and the taxability and sourcing of specific transactions.
We value long term relationships built on trust, integrity and solid services for our clients.
