This process involves educating clients on the program, which is central to John’s approach of strengthening future claims.

John’s assistance is hands-on, involving careful analysis of expenditures and handling the many details of the claim. His goal is to ensure a successful claim that stands up to the rigorous scrutiny of the Canada Revenue Agency and provides the client with the highest possible returns.
