From 1974 to today
A brief history
In 1974, a group of students in the master’s program in taxation at the Université de Sherbrooke founded Consultax Ltd.
The new firm specialized in sales tax recovery services with public-sector organizations in Quebec.

The group quickly expanded, and soon Consultax was offering expert services to manufacturing companies across Quebec and Canada. With a mandate to support clients throughout the audit process, Consultax in the late 1980s played an instrumental role in helping some of its manufacturing clients secure a favourable judgment, resulting in the recovery of tens of millions of dollars.
In the 1990s, the goods and services tax (GST), Quebec sales tax (QST) and harmonized sales tax (HST) came into force. The company adapted to these new fiscal measures.

for its clients
Consultax professionals went on to work on major projects that had significant financial impacts for its clients (medical laboratories and health establishments), specifically in connection with the GST and QST applied to pharmaceutical products in the health sector.
In this regard, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) in 2009 issued an opinion on the application of the GST/HST with the intention of clarifying the conditions under which the concerned suppliers were entitled to sell their products as tax-free supplies.
By the early 2000s, Consultax Ltd was providing professional services across Canada, with most of its clients concentrated in Quebec and Ontario. Thanks to its continued development and its tax expertise specific to education, Consultax Ltd helped clients in this sector benefit from substantial reimbursements.
In 2007, associates of Consultax Ltd founded Consultax SST Ltd, which specialized in labour relations and occupational health and safety (OHS). Consultax SST offers services related to internal financial OHS audits, including case studies and analyses likely to impact the employer’s experience and annual fees.
