I brought my 2018 return into CNC to be reviewed as I felt I had missed something when I had originally filed. Sure enough, they were able to spot it and I am now waiting for a refund from Revenue Canada in the mail! I dealt with the owner, Nafees, who is friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. I'll definitely be bringing my taxes to him again this year. It was a very positive experience.

Nafees has great problem solving skills. I had an issue with CRA for a while. They not only hold all my 2017 refund but also reassessed me for additional taxes. My previous accountant couldn't resolve the issue. Nafees handled the matter within few weeks. Not only I received my 2017 refund but also CRA reversed the reassessment. Nafees also filed 2018 taxes and I received my 2018 refund as well within couple of weeks. On the top of all this customer service was great, very polite staff. Fees was very reasonable. I will recommend Nafees for all the tax work. I am not going to change accountant anymore. This is the firm, I will be using from now on, for all my tax work.

Thanks Nafees for helping me out with my business taxes and saving me time and substantial taxes. With your professional approach and recommendations the whole process was painless. I will definitely recommend you among my friends for all bookkeeping and the tax work. Good to have an advisor like you during this difficult COVID19 times. Your advise was very helpful for my business.
