We hired a 3rd party immigration company to help create and file a LMIA application to hire a foreign worker. Are their fees charged plus the fees charged by Service Canada eligible for expenses on our Income Tax return?
Fees charged by the 3rd party can be applied with instructions below.
As for fees charged by Service Canada - I would contact the CRA directly to see if these fees are eligible.
In TTD (download version)
- Easy Step - Income tab - Business Profile Section - follow the screens to bring you to the Expense Section to enter in the amount.

Make sure to keep all receipts and slips in case the CRA requests them.
