Voluntary Disclosure Program

Introduction: The Voluntary Disclosure Program (VDP) offers a pathway for individuals and businesses to correct inaccuracies or omissions in their dealings with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) while potentially avoiding penalties or prosecution.

Understanding the Voluntary Disclosure Program

  1. Eligibility Criteria: The VDP is available for disclosures that are voluntary, complete, involve a penalty, and include information that is at least one year overdue.
  2. Benefits of Voluntary Disclosure: By voluntarily disclosing, clients can avoid penalties, reduce interest charges, and gain relief from prosecution related to the disclosed information.
  3. Types of Disclosures: Covers a range of tax matters, including income tax, GST/HST, source deductions, and charges under the Excise Tax Act or Excise Act.
