Did you know that the Canadian income tax system is among the most complicated in the world? Did you know that the vast majority of accountants and lawyers in Canada have only a very basic knowledge of taxation law, and are certainly not experts? Did you know that, with proper expertise and planning, Canadian tax liabilities can often be minimized or avoided? Imagine if you could find a high-level Canadian tax specialist who does nothing but focus on tax consulting and planning issues- one who practiced totally independently and was not constrained by the bureaucracy and procedures of a big accounting or law firm-one who could give you high-level, personalized advice, NO MATTER WHERE YOU WERE IN THE WORLD! Imagine that! Well, you don't have to just imagine it! Since 1991, Michael Atlas has operated a unique independent tax consulting practice in the heart of downtown Toronto. Unlike the vast majority of his fellow Chartered Professional Accountants in public practice, who devote their time and energies to filing tax returns and preparing financial statements, Michael Atlas devotes all of his time and energies to creative tax consulting. He focuses particularly on the following areas:



  • Inbound international tax
  • Outbound international tax
  • Estate planning
  • Post-mortem planning
  • High-level corporate tax planning, including reorganizations
  • Big money real estate tax issues



Creative and carefully executed INTERNATIONAL tax planning offers the most opportunities for LEGALLY MINIMIZING CANADIAN TAX. Michael Atlas is widely considered to be one of the few Canadian tax practitioners, outside of the big accounting and law firms, who is an expert on high-level international tax planning.



He is especially focused on NON-RESIDENT TAX issues. He is the author of the book "Canadian Taxation of Non-Residents", published by CCH Canadian Ltd. Now in its 4th Edition, it is generally considered to be the top book on inbound international tax issues in Canada. Since the publication of the original edition in 1995, it has been regularly used as a reference by accountants and lawyers all across Canada. Assisting Canadians to TOTALLY AVOID CANADIAN TAXES by becoming non-residents is a particular specialty of his.


In addition, Michael Atlas provides creative consulting services in connection with many high-level domestic tax issues. In all cases, whether in connection with domestic or international tax issues, his overriding objective is to combine his creative imagination, highly developed technical skills, and vast knowledge of Canadian tax law, to assist his clients to AVOID OR MINIMIZE CANADIAN TAXES. Over the years, his efforts have saved his clients countless millions of dollars in taxes!
