#NFP Blog - Canada Revenue Agency Proposes Sweeping Changes to Voluntary Disclosures Program: Summary: On June 9, 2017, Canada’s Minister of National Revenue and the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) announced consultations on proposed changes to the Voluntary Disclosures Program (“VDP”) that is administered by CRA. The announcement follows reports from the House of Commons Standing Committee on Finance (October 2016) and the Offshore Compliance Advisory Committee (December 2016) recommending, respectively, a comprehensive review of the VDP and various specific changes to the VDP to tighten the criteria for acceptance into the program. The changes are largely described in draft Information Circular IC00-1R6 (for voluntary disclosures relating to income tax) and in draft GST/HST Memorandum 16.5 (for voluntary disclosures relating to other taxes, including GST/HST and excise duties and taxes). Stakeholders are encouraged to provide input on the proposed changes within the 60-day consultation period which began on June 9, 2017. It appears that the final changes are intended to have effect after December 31, 2017.
