Payroll Tax

Ryan’s payroll tax professionals help clients strategically control their payroll tax liabilities through effective management of their workers’ compensation (WSIB/WCB) premiums, Canada Pension Plan (CPP) contributions, Employment Insurance (EI) premiums, and health taxes such as the Employer Health Tax (EHT). Our payroll tax services leverage Ryan’s proven processes and methodologies backed by years of experience delivering tremendous value and tax savings in every major area of federal and provincial tax for Canada’s most respected companies.

Unlike payroll processing companies, Ryan’s comprehensive knowledge of all applicable payroll taxes in all provinces allows us to compare rates, reports, and allocations to ensure our clients effectively minimize payroll tax costs. When the complexity of a company’s operations or legal structure requires a tax ruling to secure payroll tax savings, Ryan prepares and presents the request. Similarly, if a refund claim is initially denied, and an appeal is needed to achieve success, Ryan will diligently represent your interests.

Workers’ Compensation (WSIB/WCB) Savings
Our reviews ensure that clients’ business operations are classified correctly, in one or more rate groups, to minimize WSIB/WCB premiums. Ryan professionals investigate alternatives to achieve the lowest possible premium rates by considering all available premium relief mechanisms to maximise savings opportunities. In complex situations, we seek and secure rulings or policy changes to obtain the best possible treatment for our clients.

Audit Representation
Ryan’s extensive experience managing payroll tax audits helps clients defend against potential assessments. We have a demonstrated history of success in identifying opportunities to minimise tax liabilities and penalties. If an issue merits an appeal, we prepare and present your case to the appropriate taxing authority. Our performance-based fee structure mitigates financial risk and eliminates the need for any additional budget to have Ryan’s experienced team of tax experts represent your interests.

Compliance
Our payroll tax reviews will identify and investigate any inconsistencies, ensuring accurate payroll tax reporting and compliance. Areas of potential exposure are identified and discussed in detail, and actionable advice regarding ways to reduce risk and increase compliance is outlined.

Client Reporting
Within four weeks after completing an on-site review, clients receive a comprehensive written report, clearly identifying all areas of payroll tax savings with supporting documentation. And our consultants are available to discuss the report in detail, providing clarification and guidance for reducing payroll tax liabilities now and in the future.
