    team directly to your regional office to collect original invoices
  • If legislation requires that your invoices need to be formatted differently, we will contact your supplier and make sure the invoices are restyled to the compliant format

Our corporate culture ensures each and every claim, no matter how big or small, is treated with the same level of importance and follow-through.


Our only fee is a small percentage of the recovered tax. If there is no refund, there is no cost to you.
