Did You Know...
Revenue Agency can review your tax returns as
far back as ten years?
At Centaur Accounting, we archive all of our
clients' tax returns for this time period. In
case of an audit, our trained professionals will
work with you throughout the process, making
sure your rights are protected.
As a Centaur client, you will never have to deal

Follow the Progress
of your T1 Return
Accounting, we guarantee a one-week turnaround

Unlike some of our competitors, we essentially

return is reviewed by a different staff member

paper consumption and minimize our carbon
